This is for you, if:
You are ready to take the next steps in your recovery journey, but aren’t sure where to start
You feel like you know the next step, but can’t get past a certain part of recovery (whether that’s food fears, body image, exercise addiction, etc.)
You want to start exploring what it really means to do shadow work and address trauma(s)/microtrauma(s) that may be holding you back
You have done the hard parts of recovery, but still feel lost in who you are after months or years of identifying as your eating disorder and want to know how to find yourself again
You just need a listening ear and to talk to someone who deeply knows what you are going through
You are ready to commit to yourself and healing and have questions about getting back in touch with you, your body, your mind and soul.
Recovery is hard. It can be isolating, confusing, and feel like it’s too much at once. When I was recovering, the majority of the time, I felt so lost and all I wanted was to be able to talk to someone who actually knew what I was going through. I wanted to be able to pick someone’s brain who had been in my shoes and had gotten through to the other side. The professional help was fine, but it wasn’t enough for me. Most of the male doctors I went to see had, what felt like, 0 training in helping and talking to young girls and women about eating disorders.
This call would’ve meant everything to me. Forty-five minutes to an hour of just being heard, seen, and feeling like there was a next step or even an end to all the misery I was feeling. Forty- five minutes to an hour of actually speaking to someone who is certified to talk to me about both my physical and mental health, someone who understands the trials that come with overcoming a disorder, and someone who genuinely cares about my wellbeing. This forty-five minutes to an hour is for you if you are genuinely and sincerely ready to recover, to reclaim your life, and get back in touch with your body, mind, heart, and soul.
Whether you are already in professional treatment and need extra motivation and ideas; been suffering in silence for days, weeks, months or years; not currently getting professional help but ready to take the next step; have already tried everything and don’t know where to turn next; literally no matter where you are in journey – this call could be your missing equation. It could be the impetus you’ve been waiting for to get you onto the right path and back home to yourself.
You Deserve to Life a Life You Love Without the Sacrifice
I’m not going to lie, I’m different. I have different beliefs on how to recover from an eating disorder that may go against conventional or traditional methods. I’ve always believed the words “but we’ve always done it this way,” to be the most dangerous in the English language.
I’m not saying that I don’t think the way treatment is currently being done isn’t helpful, because I know for some people it is and, while I have some differing beliefs, I do hold have many of the same. But, after spending years in this space it is so clear for me to see that the system needs a massive update. I just think the majority of the focus in traditional recovery is on food and body image and, in my opinion, there is way more to the healing puzzle than that. The relationship we have with food and our bodies is coming from a deeper issue and that’s what I am here to address with you. We are going to get to the root issue so that you can finally live a life you love and get back into alignment with who you came on this Earth to be. I am all for teaming up professional treatment with my practices because there is no one way or wrong way to recover.
Our eating disorders are unique; therefore, recovery is not going to look the same for every person. In fact, it is the very opposite – it’s going to look different for every single person. There is no 5-step formula that everyone needs to follow. Recovery is about: looking at the trauma/microtrauma(s) you have been stuffing down for years and years, realizing that you have developed maladaptive coping mechanisms because of them, and then actively addressing them one by one. By no means is it as easy as it sounds, it is hard work. It is uncomfortable, but the payout is beyond worth it. And I will be here with you every single step of the way.
Life does not have to be as heavy as we sometimes make it. You are not a hopeless case. You will not be stuck in this place forever. You aren’t broken. You are a human who is meant for far more than living a life stuck worrying about food and your body. And if you can’t see that yet, don’t worry, that is why I’m here.
