This is a pro-recovery site. My intention is to create a safe recovery community with tips and strategies that will help people to recover from binge eating, compulsive eating, bulimia, and other difficult eating patterns. I advocate a mindfulness based, non-diet, intuitive eating approach to recovery.
I am a San Francisco psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. I have been working professionally in the eating disorder recovery community since 2005, and have been involved as a volunteer and participant since 1999. I have trained at several different Eating Disorder facilities, and have worked at various Eating Disorder Treatment Centers doing individual and group therapy as well as hypnotherapy and meditation for healing. I have advanced Psychological training in treating Eating Disorders. Because I understand the difficulty in getting treatment (be it the cost, the inaccessible nature of treatment, or the problems with actually incorporating treatment with life) I have created this blog to help people deal with their Eating Disorders. This is certainly not a substitute for treatment, but I am hoping to do my part in helping to make recovery accessible and possible for those who don’t have access to a therapist. Please email me if you have any questions or need advice regarding your particular eating issue. I see the value in constant support, educational resources and community when trying to recover from food issues. I hope that people jump on, comment, or share their hopes strength and inspiration.
