"Find out who you are and be that person."
Initially, I graduated in 2000 with my Bachelor's in Nutrition Sciences and became a Registered Dietitian. I worked in several facilities until I started my private practice in 2006.
In 2013 I graduated with my Master's in Professional Counseling and became a fully Licensed Professional Counselor in 2015. From 2012 to 2015, I was the founder and director of a non-profit group home for the treatment of eating disorders, called Project Bliss.
I remember when I first decided to study nutrition, in hopes of one day helping others with some sort of wellness program. Back then I, too, was caught up in the social messages of good and bad foods, mandatory exercise, and the constant fear of my untrustworthy body doing something crazy at any time.
I was the proverbial "health nut"...and I was pretty proud of it. Unfortunately, I bought into the idea that eating patterns and exercise and body somehow indicated my value as a person. This belief derailed my happiness and well-being for years.
I've found that even people who do not have food or body issues tend to have the same underlying struggles. Self-image, anxiety, depression, purpose, identity, and relationships are a part of most people's lives, and our society gives few clues on how to handle these things.
No one should have to hit rock bottom or "go crazy" before having access to therapy. It has been my experience that every person can benefit from understanding themselves better.
