My name is Dalit Szkolnik
I am a certified Eating Disorder specialist and approved IAEDP supervisor and current President of the International Academy for Eating Disorders Professionals (IAEDP) Miami Chapter.
I am originally from Venezuela (bilingual Spanish/English), I graduated with a double major: Dietetics and Psychology. I completed my dietetics internship at the Renfrew Center for Eating Disorders in Florida. I later received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University in New York City.
I have since worked at eating disorder treatment centers in all levels of care including residential, PHP, and IOP. I’m a frequent speaker at the annual eating disorders conferences for professionals, I raise eating disorder awareness at school, and I work from my outpatient private practice treating clients with eating disorders and professional athletes such as the Red Sox baseball team.
- My philosophy on diets and why it Works
Even though our main focus will obviously be on nutrition and eating habits, I do like to take a holistic self-care approach. This means that we will look at your overall health and daily structure taking into consideration exercise, stress management, coping skills, sleep habits, and more.
The integration of both nutrition and psychology will help ensure permanent changes. This is why after graduating with a double major in Nutrition and Dietetics and Psychology I chose to pursue a master’s in counseling psychology. This has given me the skills to help you explore your food beliefs, behaviors, and internal self-talk, while delving into what food means to you. You will learn to become more aware of the emotions behind your food choices, challenge negative thought patterns, and start to create a life free of obsessions around food or weight.
As the current president of the iaedp™ Miami Chapter, I work along the other members of the board- a group of amazing and dedicated professionals- to bring in speakers from all over the US to provide trainings with the most up to date information to help this community of professionals gather the knowledge and tools to provide the best care to our clients.
We also plan social events for professionals in the area get to know one another and establish work connections to provide the best referrals for our clients.
We have an extremely talented and dedicated group of professionals in Miami who aim not only to provide excellent care for our clients, but who also are tremendously involved in the community and always looking to grow as professionals.
