Celeste and I are running this group because as recovered professionals, we are passionate about eating disorder recovery. We understand the struggle, the pain, the isolation, misery, and self hate. We know that there is a life completely free from this and want to create a safe place to support you in the recovery process.


We know that it is possible to be 100% recovered and free from your eating disorder. We also know that it is a challenging and difficult process to go through. Getting better doesn’t feel better and goes against everything you know and believe, which is what makes recovery so hard. This is where group can be an amazing addition to the hared work you’re doing.


We also know that living in a disordered culture makes eating disorder recovery so much harder. It seems like everywhere you go people are talking about food, weight, calories, exercise, and that these topics are never ending. When you’re struggling with an eating disorder these topics feed right into the eating disorder and make recovery harder.

The Eating Disorder Recovery Support Group is a safe place to support you in the recovery process, to fight back against diet culture, to help free you from ED, and to help you find your true healthy self.
