Colby Golder has provided nutrition therapy since she received a master’s degree in nutrition from Columbia University in 2009.  As part of her clinical training in dietetics, Colby worked at the eating disorder unit of the New York State Psychiatric Institute.  There, she was part of a multi-disciplinary team that focused on the research and treatment of eating disorders within the inpatient level of care.  


Most recently, Colby worked at the prestigious Renfrew Center for eating disorders in NYC.  There, Colby was involved in every level of therapeutic care including the day program, the intensive outpatient program (IOP) and individual nutrition counseling.  She gained vast expertise in the provision of nutrition therapy for those struggling with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, compulsive exercise, and other forms of disordered eating.  She routinely ran weekly groups focusing on nutrition education, the management of therapeutic meals, and post-meal support therapy.


Colby previously worked within the nutrition department at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute and has written for where she had the opportunity to combine her passion for nutrition with her love of writing.  Colby will be working with the CUMC students to assist in treatment of eating disorders, chronic disease management, weight management and cultivating a healthy relationship with food.
