Creating Hope & Possibility


International Interview Series:

Dr. Jantz headshotA Place of Hope’s Ministry in Ecuador
Many years ago, The Center had a family that sent their daughter to us. She was young, about 15 or 16 years old. As we treated her and learned about her environment in Ecuador, it created an awareness for us of the significance of eating disorders in South America.

The United States has the best clinics in the world for the treatment of eating disorders, but people all over the world deserve outstanding care for this very serious disorder. And not just eating disorders, but other challenges like depression and anxiety. With that realization, it inspired us to start our ministry.


Friends supporting each otherWomen with Anorexia and Co-Occurring Issues
I find that most middle-aged women who come to us for anorexia treatment are taking between four and six anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications. This tells a troubling story of the prevalence of co-occurring anxiety, depression, and prescription drug addiction.

Abuse, Trauma, and Eating Disorders
Individuals that struggle with eating disorders may develop an eating disorder as a way to cope with pain or emotional scarring. Understanding the source of this pain or or trauma can therefore be the key needed to unlock the path to eating disorder recovery.

Hope Help & HealingHope, Help, & Healing For Eating Disorders

Eating disorders and disordered eating ravage and consume too many lives. In this powerful book for individuals suffering from eating disorders—as well as those wanting to help—Dr. Gregory Jantz comes alongside his readers with a well-tested and successful approach that addresses the emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual dimensions of healing from an eating disorder.

Topics include:

  • Five often-overlooked nutritional keys to recovery

  • How not to be a victim of others
  • The role of emotional and verbal abuse in eating disorders
  • Seven keys to creating healthy relationships

Healing The ScarsHealing the Scars of Childhood Abuse

Something dreadful happened on the way to adulthood for far too many children. Perhaps you’re one of them. Perhaps the childhood you so desperately wanted didn’t happen for you. Instead, your childhood wasn’t something you dreamed about; your childhood was a nightmare you survived. And for some of you, just barely.

Childhood is supposed to be a loving, nurturing, and empowering time for children to be strengthened and supported into adulthood. When childhood abuse enters into that picture, that reality becomes torn and tattered. How do you find a way to pick up those fragments of your life and move forward?

Dr. Gregory Jantz and Ann Murray provide the compassion and insight that so many adults need to help understand the “why” of their childhood abuse. Then, they provide the hope, tools and guidance to help them in their recovery to a more happy, balanced and prosperous future.

Overcoming Anxiety, Worry, and FearOvercoming Anxiety, Worry & Fear

Fretting over seemingly inconsequential daily headaches. Constantly worrying about family members’ health or safety. Being weighed down by negativity from the 24-hour news cycle. It’s a wonder anyone can escape anxiety. Unchecked, anxiety can swiftly rob us of our sense of safety, well-being, and peace.

Overcoming Anxiety, Worry, and Fear offers a whole-person approach to coping with and eliminating anxiety. This compassionate combination of common sense, biblical wisdom, and therapeutic advice will help readers unchain themselves from constant worry so that they can “be anxious about nothing” (Phil. 4:6). Trusted author Dr. Gregory L. Jantz helps readers identify the causes for their anxiety, assess the severity of their symptoms, and start down avenues for positive change.
