Consulting and coaching support opportunities are available.
Recovery Coaching offers a one on one relationship with an experienced mentor, focused on helping you attain your goals, develop healthy life skills and find long-term freedom from an eating disorder.
It is not therapy, rather the coach comes alongside your current treatment team to be an extra pillar of encouragement, motivation, faith-based support (if desired) and accountability.
A coach can also assist in case management, provide coaching and support for the family of a loved one in recovery, help find resources, and navigate the treatment process. The relationship can be customizable to the needs of you and your family at whatever point you are at on the healing journey.
Consulting offers the opportunity to discuss the eating disorder field and treatment options with a seasoned veteran of the field.
It may be useful for a one-time discussion of a case and what treatment options are available to meet the needs of that individual.
Or, it may be helpful to a company seeking to understand the eating disorder field while considering designing and establishing their own treatment program.
