Joleen Wilson, RD/LD, CBIS
Joleen Wilson RD, LD, CNSC is a Registered Dietitian in practice since 2008. She received her BS in Dietetics from Kanas State University and completed her dietetic internship at the Hines Veterans Affairs Hospital near Chicago. Her early career interest in critical care led her to a CNSC nutrition support certification which she continues to hold. Other professional experience includes inpatient eating disorder unit, mental health, substance abuse, pediatrics, long term care, and brain injury. She opened her private practice, JoleenRD, in 2017, where she sees patients with eating disorders exclusively. She serves as the dietitian for the Resilience RecoverED IOP.
Joleen’s approach is thoughtful, intuitive, straight forward, and without judgement. She works from a Health at Every Size (HAES) perspective and incorporates many proven methods in her work with clients, including Intuitive Eating and Family Based Treatment, while making use of the patients’ coping skills in relation to disordered eating and body image. She takes a step-wise approach that is client-led, determines what’s “really going on”, then empowers the client to live the life they want to live that is connected to their values and beliefs.
Joleen is known for her inclusive collaboration with other therapists, doctors, and psychiatrists and believes communication among treatment team members is vital in allowing the patient to feel safe and understood. She is a member of iaedp (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals) and provides presentations related to eating disorders and disordered eating to the public and to other ED professionals. She is available by appointment. For more information, visit www.joleenRD.com.
