Embracing Personalized Care: Nurturing the Mind, Body, & Soul

Updated: Feb 10

Many disparities exist in the standard care for eating disorders. Far too many individuals spend their life relapsing, on multiple psychotropic medications while others hide in their illness, never having the opportunity to reach their full potential. There is limited longevity in treatment that emphasizes 'fixing' rather than understanding the underlying cause driving dysfunctional behaviors. I do believe standard eating disorder treatment approaches, medications, & treatment facilities have a purpose in bringing someone closer to recovery but this is only the surface of a very complicated, deep rooted cognitive-metabolic condition. In addition to courage & dedication, establishing a clinical team to help guide you through your journey can make recovery possible. Please know that you are not broken & your life is worth fighting for.

As human beings, we are all unique, requiring different approaches to our well-being. In my practice, I believe in providing a personalized care plan that nurtures the Mind, Body, and Soul. While stability is essential for maintaining the status quo, I aim to foster sustainability - a consistent and positive evolution - that empowers individuals to prosper not only in the present but also for future generations. In the following sections, I will discuss how I address the well-being of the mind, body, and soul in my practice, highlighting the importance of stability while guiding my clients towards a sustainable path.

Section 1: Nurturing the Mind

Our minds play a central role in shaping our experiences, beliefs, values, and purpose within the world. However, distress, trauma, and attachment injuries can lead to unpleasant emotions such as sadness, loneliness, and worthlessness. In my practice, I use Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy to help clients explore and identify the "parts" that make up their sense of self. By understanding how the eating disorder is involved, we can create a framework for healing. Additionally, trauma therapy techniques like EMDR or ART help reprocess distressing memories, enabling clients to embrace new, positive beliefs and move forward. Alongside these therapeutic approaches, I also incorporate modalities like psychotropic medications, ro-DBT, CBT, neurofeedback, and explore the potential benefits of psychedelic therapy.

Section 2: Nourishing the Body

Eating disorders often present metabolic challenges, making treatment a complex process. To navigate these complications, I incorporate modern diagnostic and treatment strategies. By nurturing the body, we can effectively monitor and address the various metabolic issues associated with eating disorders. Recognizing the importance of physical activity, I encourage clients to engage in movement that helps them connect with their bodies and free their minds in a safe and empowering manner.

Section 3: Cultivating the Soul

Deep within each individual lies their soul, yearning for comfort and purpose. Through coaching, I introduce clients to contemporary mindfulness and meditation practices. These approaches help individuals discover serenity, enabling them to appreciate the beauty in all its diverse forms. Although we cannot change society's obsession with diet culture or alter how everyone communicates with those with eating disorders, I empower clients to develop a growth mindset and challenge their perspectives from within. True change begins with understanding ourselves and fostering our own growth.

Nurturing the Mind, Body, and Soul through personalized care is the cornerstone of my practice. By incorporating various therapeutic techniques, monitoring metabolic complications, and promoting self-discovery, I guide my clients towards a pathway of sustainable well-being. Together, we can nourish and celebrate the uniqueness that resides within each one of us, enabling us to thrive throughout our lives and leave a positive impact on future generations.'
