TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

The Healthy at Every Size model and Intuitive Eating are key ingredients to my philosophy. Having a peaceful relationship with food and your body is one main underlying goal (including replacing the relationship with food and the disorder).

Yes I think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder and I define recovery as: Having a peaceful relationship with food and your body. To regain other relationships, and slowly give up the relationship with food and the disorder. Being able to use healthier coping skills to deal with life’s stresses. Also, dealing with issues that lie hidden beneath the eating disorder, such as anxiety and depression.
