Work With Me

an artistic flower

During your complimentary clarity call, I’ll ask you these questions: What you would like to be able to do with food/exercise/body image that you can’t currently do? What do you want to STOP doing even though it seems impossible? I’ll be honest and tell you if I can help you achieve your goals and if my coaching is right for you. We’ll cover how coaching helps people fully recover from eating disorders.

In our first 1:1 virtual session, you’ll choose specific goals with action steps you can begin immediately. I’ll design a customized program with between-session support to help you stabilize eating patterns and mood, learn new recovery skills and tools and gradually construct your maintenance pattern for continued success.

Your program will include 1:1 virtual goal sessions, between-session support and other services focused on meeting your goals. See my list of services here. You may need a few hours of in-home support to get you on track with food prep and saying farewell to old clothing, virtual meal support so you can release your fear of [ insert fear food here ] or help with recognizing feelings and learn communication skills. We may use expressive arts projects
for healing.

If you have a team I will speak with them and coordinate care (with a release). If you don’t have a team and need one, I can help you build one with my local colleagues and national network. Teams include therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists and medical doctors.

Your customized program will help you reach your goals, step by step with plenty of hand holding when you need it the most. Without judgment! Most clients need a minimum of 3 months of coaching to experience real change. Many need coaching for 6 months to a year and that’s okay. Month by month we’ll review your goals and adjust your program to fit your needs. Recovery is not linear, but with the right support, it gains traction, then momentum. It’s exciting! You will get to a place of needing less coaching and then none at all. That’s my goal!

Carolyn Costin’s Definition of “Recovered”

“The person can accept his or her natural body size and shape and no longer has a self- destructive or unnatural relationship with food or exercise. When you are recovered, you do not use eating disorder behaviors to deal with, distract from, or cope with other problems. When ecovered, you will not compromise your health or betray your soul to look a certain way, wear a certain size or reach a certain number on the scale.”
