Eating Disorders | Disordered Eating

Preventing and treating individuals with eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) or Disordered Eating is one of my specialties.  I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS), which means I have demonstrated advanced clinical expertise through education, experience and a rigorous examination in the fields of eating disorders.  I have my Master’s degree in Counseling and bring therapeutic strategies and body image techniques into my eating disorder work with clients. I also support Family Based Therapy (FBT – also known as the Maudsley Method).   I helped start the University of Colorado’s Eating Disorder Treatment Team, participated on the team for 10 years and am trained as a Body Positive facilitator.  

Eating disorders are not lifestyle choices, fads or phases, but rather they are serious mental health disorders.  Eating Disorders do not discriminate.  They effect people of all ages, genders and ethnic backgrounds.  I approach each person as an individual and work with their unique set of circumstances, whether it be restricting, purging, over-exercising, binge eating, distorted body image or a combination of each, to help clients in a non-judgmental way, move towards a healthier relationship with food and their body.  I believe in providing nutrition guidelines, along with an intuitive, mind-body centered approach.  This approach incorporates self-awareness around foods, thought patterns and lifestyle behaviors, as well as, body centered strategies for improved self-care.

I work closely with other team members, including medical providers, therapists, other support professionals and family members to help clients transition toward recovery and a more meaningful life.  If you have an eating disorder or know someone that does, please contact me and let me help you.  Nothing feels as good as recovery.  Recovery is a challenge, but not as difficult as living with the relentless pursuit of perfection, at the hands of an eating disorder.

And I said to my body softly: “I want to be your friend." It took a long breath and replied: “I have been waiting my whole life for this."
