Eating Disorders & Intuitive Eating

Eating Disorders & Intuitive Eating

Whether you have been diagnosed with an eating disorder or not, my goal is for you to find peace with food and establish a good relationship with your body. I understand the way an eating disorder affects each area of your life. My non-diet philosophy is designed to help nourish and heal your body while achieving balance.

With experience working at the residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient levels of care, you can be assured that your treatment will be balanced with the most up to date evidence and sincere compassion. I believe that small changes amount to long lasting progress and sustained recovery. Lastly, I believe that recovery is completely possible and within your reach.

Intuitive Eating & Health At Every Size Approach

As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, I will work with you through the 10 principals of intuitive eating and help you with any challenges that you may face. You are not alone on your journey to find peace with food and your body.

Intuitive Eating is an approach developed by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch. Intuitive eating is a non-dieting approach to eating and wellness. New Hope Counseling and Wellness Center believes that weight is not a true indicator of health nor wellness. Health comes in all shapes and sizes and cannot be determined by the number on a scale.
