This is a place where you can safely be yourself.

My Goal.

I believe that with patience, honesty in collaborative care in treatment for a gradual healthy process and someone who wants knows that controlling one’s body size through the use of food, movement, or any other means we can get to a place of having God’s will for taking safeness with one’s body NOT A SPECIFIC SIZE, OR NUMBER ON THE SCALE (high or low) as a place of being in the process of recovering from an illness caused from a very complicated mix of genetic, family relationship, trauma, social, cultural and other potential medical pieces… God will be with us every step of the way.
