Alcoholics never have to drink again, those with ED's have to eat every day no matter what is happening in their life or how they are feeling about themselves and their body. This makes recovery even more challenging, but there is hope.
I had the privilege of being a Family Therapist at the Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt in Baltimore, Maryland. My experience there has given me great compassion for Eating Disorders and a thorough understanding of how to successfully treat them. I work collaboratively with dieticians to ensure nutritional accountability and success. If you have found this page you still have hope.
You are welcome to call or email me, whichever is an easier contact for you.

Peace within ones body and mind is something many people take for granted. Those suffering from Eating Disorders have a preoccupation followed by a compulsion to act in a way that is harmful to their body. This is a torturous way to live, a personal hell and once out of control- no longer is a choice. People often see Eating Disorders as "just wanting to be thin," this is a complete misconception.
In my work with clients I compassionately help them to let go of their unhealthy behaviors while developing individualized coping skills. I often involve loved ones in a relapse prevention plan so their support is aware of secretive behaviors which perpetuate the ED cycle. Some of my clients see me a couple times a week for a personalized intensive treatment following inpatient, then we slowly decrease as a means of easing the transition. While others in a maintenance stage of recovery see me once a week or biweekly.
