I specialize in supporting current and former athletes through eating disorder treatment. I have an understanding of how athletic culture creates a unique set of circumstances and beliefs that add to the complexity of treating and recovering from an eating disorder. I can come alongside you to connect you with the resources and professionals helpful in expanding your support system, and create a multifaceted approach that is often needed for recovery. I will make sure you and your family understand the next steps in navigating the overwhelming world of treatment so you can move towards healing. You do not have to figure this out alone.
