Marissa Campbell, RD
On May 1, 2019, I will be moving from California to Colorado to open my private practice with Janice Van Anrooy, LPC. We have created a team approach to eating disorders. I believe that full recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating and a healed relationship with food and your body is 100% possible. I also believe that an integrative team approach to treatment is essential in providing optimal support for the individual during this recovery process.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Colorado State University in December 2015, and completed a 9 month dietetic internship in Baltimore, Maryland in May 2017. I gained clinical nutrition experience in a hospital setting and spent part of my rotation at the University of Notre Dame, educating athletes about sports nutrition and the importance of fueling for optimal performance.
After passing the exam to receive my RD credentials, I accepted a position at an eating disorder clinic that provides PHP (partial hospitalization), IOP (intensive outpatient), and outpatient levels of care in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Over the last 2 years, I have provided counseling at the individual level, taught group nutrition classes, and led experiential-based groups. I have an incredible passion for this patient population and as a dietitian fully recovered from an eating disorder myself, I am able to connect with them on a more personal level.
My personal recovery from an eating disorder was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I couldn’t have done it alone. I was diagnosed with Anorexia at age 17 and received treatment from an outpatient team (therapist, dietitian, and physician) for about 2 years. I was very close to being admitted to a higher level of care as my restriction and exercise became extreme and medically concerning. My family played an essential role in my recovery as they committed to support me daily during meal times and encouraged me when I thought recovery was not possible. With consistent therapy over time and by learning to care for my body through nourishment and healthy movement, I have found full recovery. I believe that my own recovery journey is what has led me to work in this field. I love being a part of each individual’s recovery process and hope I can help others find freedom and peace with food and rediscover true joy in life’s wonderful experiences.
