Ondina Nandine Hatvany, MFT is a licensed therapist with practices in San Francisco and Mill Valley. She is the Director of the Eating Disorders Program at the Community Institute of Psychotherapy in San Rafael. She works with food and weight issues by helping her clients develop a non-diet lifestyle and come home to their bodies. This means redefining the body from being the battleground or “shame container” to becoming the place of grounding and connection with both the self and other. She works with clients to talk about their problems instead of trying to stuff or starve the problems out of existence. Ondina believes this is the first step toward empowerment and living a fully embodied life. She may be reached at (415) 381-1065, firstname.lastname@example.org or www.OndinaWellness.com.
