Julie Hayes-Nadler, RDN, IFNCP is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 33 years of expertise and experience in treating eating disorders. She became an IFNCP with the first class of IFNA where she nurtured her interest in food as medicine and developed special interest and expertise in gut focused health, HPA axis dysfunction, and nutrition for mental health. She has since recognized how common gut related disorders such as IBS, SIBO, and GERD along with PCOS are in the eating disorder population and has greatly enjoyed her ability to integrate her Integrative and Functional expertise into her decades of eating disorder work. Julie has worked in inpatient, outpatient, education and private practice settings. She specializes in treating eating disorders across the lifespan in her private and remote practice in Santa Barbara, California.
Julie has a unique perspective on typical eating disorders along with more newly recognized disorders such as Orthorexia and ARFID, all of which often present complex considerations for the functional nutrition professional. She has worked with many teams of professionals in many settings and has a keen understanding of how tricky it can be to balance Integrative/Functional work into the very complicated territory of disordered eating. If you need mentoring on an eating disorder case or help with assessing whether or not an eating disorder case is appropriate for an integrative/functional approach Julie can help you look at the big picture and guide you in discerning the best course of action for your eating disorder patient.
