Liz Lees

Registered Dietitian & Certified Gastrointestinal Nutritionist

Liz Lees is an eating disorder Registered Dietitian & Certified Gastrointestinal Nutritionist with over 10 years of clinical experience working with adolescents and adults in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. She provides evidence-based nutrition counseling and loves to work alongside her clients to balance the complexities that accompany their eating disorders and/or gastrointestinal concerns.

After earning her Bachelor of Science with a Concentration in Dietetics from Arizona State University (ASU), she went on to complete a dual dietetic internship with a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from Rush University. Liz began her career with a focus on GI Nutrition and Digestive Health Issues. She also has extensive experience in the mental health field, including working with individuals with disordered eating behaviors and eating disorders. in 2022, she received additional training to become a Certified Gastrointestinal Nutritionist (GCN). A CGN has true expertise, effectiveness, and confidence in supporting clients with chronic GI issues such as symptoms of bloating, constipation, and diarrhea, to diagnosed conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), candida, SIBO, h. pylori, POTS, and food intolerances/sensitivities. With this additional training Liz can offer her clients so many more resources such as ordering and interpreting lab work and various GI diagnostic tests. With this information, Liz can do a deeper dive into the overall assessment of your gastrointestinal health and how that impacts coexisting medical conditions and your physical and mental wellbeing. The combination of eating disorder/disordered eating behaviors and GI health can be a tricky combination as most traditional meal plans for GI conditions can often be quite restrictive and present more harm than benefit in the eating disorder population. Liz strives to work from an approach of inclusion rather than exclusion of dietary components to support a positive relationship with food.
