"To get free from anorexia and other eating disorders we need to first illuminate and understand the nature of the problem. That's the purpose of my books, blog/podcast and services - to help you SEE why you struggle, to locate where you're at, and to identify what you can do now to move forward.

I want to illuminate the landscape, provide a map for the journey and some tools to help you get to your desired destination - the land of freedom and wholeness. You can be at peace within yourself and confident in your skin..."

You can recover your LIFE!

It would be my privilege to walk with you on that journey, to shed light on your path, and to provide the knowledge, skills and support you need to get to your own personal freedom 'land'.

Let’s beat back the darkness together."

“SEE how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” Anne Frank
