What is Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching?
A coach walks alongside you daily to address the "here and now" behaviors, thoughts, and emotions of recovery. A therapist may address the "why" of an eating disorder (e.g., past traumas), but a coach focuses on today.
Support for the every-day, "here and now" of recovery.
Many recovery coaching programs focus mainly on behavioral changes. However, I use the EDIT™ method, which incorporates a holistic approach to eating disorder recovery: body, mind, heart, and soul.
Guidance for behavior changes, self-compassion, & increasing inner intuition.
The people of all ages I met on my recovery journey became my true heroes. I know what it's like to struggle, and I know what it's like to recover. Wherever you are, I want to meet you there and help you take the next step toward healing.
Help from someone who understands and has recovered.
What Will Our Work Together Look Like?
Weekly sessions (or more often as needed) will involve processing emotions, practical exercises, and determining an action plan for recovery.
Weekly Sessions & Customized Action Plan
During virtual or in-person sessions, we may eat meals together as needed. Because recovery is an all-day every-day process, I offer extensive texting support between sessions.
Meal Support During Sessions as Needed & Extensive Text Support
If you are transitioning out of a treatment center (from hours of support a day) to your every-day routine, you may need a higher level of support than a traditional therapy model provides. I offer one-month intensive packages for up to four sessions a week as needed.

Recovery Coaching on a Holistic Treatment Team
A recovery coach focuses on the "here and now" of recovery and provides tools and support to overcome the daily challenges of eating disorder recovery. A coach has a different kind of freedom to meet at times (daily, weekly) and spaces (private space, coffee shop, restaurant) that you need.
Medical care and Medication
Evaluation of dietary needs and Meal Plan
Clinical diagnoses, exploration of eating disorder origins, and treatment of past traumas
On a holistic treatment team, your recovery is
at the center
where all team members coordinate and collaborate on your behalf.
The EDIT™ Approach
At the heart of EDIT™ is the idea that long-lasting recovery happens when we recognize the false message of the eating disorder and recover the true self as the guide toward healing.
