They are among the deadliest of all mental illnesses second to opioid overdose. They affect at least 9% of the population worldwide with an economic cost of ~$64.7 billion every year.

Treatment of eating disorders requires a multi-disciplinary approach including all or a combination of a physician, mental health professionals, registered dietitians, and more recently recovery coaches.




Eating                  are                        illnesses

As your CCI Certified Recovery Coach, my focus is on helping you learn and apply new skills in order to maintain recovery.

I provide important ancillary support by utilizing exposure response prevention work to help you make the necessary behavior changes that are critical for recovery.

With my help, you will gain greater insight into your behaviors, work towards making changes, and build a better relationship with food. I will assist you in creating a plan for managing triggers, creating healthy coping skills, gain an understanding of your personal needs, and maintain motivation during the recovery process. By providing ongoing support every step of the way, I can empower you to make lasting change while building self-esteem and finding stronger self-acceptance.


Coaching        a gap.

Having had and recovered from my own eating disorder, I also offer a peer perspective of having “been there” and understand the complexities a client faces both while suffering with and recovering from an eating disorder. CCI has also trained me on how to share and use my personal experience in a safe and healthy way so that I may be a role model and source of hope and inspiration that recovery is possible.

Being trained through the Carolyn Costin Institute (CCI) has prepared me to work as an adjunct to your client’s treatment team to implement and integrate behavior changes necessary in their daily lives to reach and sustain recovery.

My work with clients is focused on the “here and now” of present thoughts and behaviors in real-life scenarios that are often difficult and challenging to face for someone struggling with an eating disorder. Performing exposure and response prevention work with clients allows you more time to work with the client on underlying, larger psychological issues and/or specific nutritional-related goals that are not within a coach's scope of practice.

How coaching compliments your work:

For Professionals

Coaches assist clients in accomplishing
established treatment goals.


Therapists are in charge of ongoing assessment, establishing treatment goals, and carrying out the overall treatment plan.


Coaching sessions can be held anywhere, anytime the client needs them; in the home, at the grocery store, clothing store, at work, at restaurants, etc. and coaches can be hired for 24/7 live-ins.


Therapy sessions are generally
one hour and take place in an
office setting.


Coaches are trained to work only
on the "here and now" helping the client to accomplish day-to- day behavior challenges.


Therapists are trained to help clients work on underlying issues exploring WHY the eating disorder might have developed.


Refers to the therapist for
treatment of any co-morbid issues (e.g., depression, anxiety, substance abuse, etc.)


Can diagnose and treat other
co-morbid issues (e.g. depression, anxiety, substance abuse, etc.)


Does not diagnose conditions or treat them. Instead, helps support the work and goals of the client's clinicians.

Casual Talking Sessions


My                Include...



Support extends outside of sessions and out into the real world. Texting facilitates connectedness to me as a support person in between scheduled sessions and helps you to stay on track with your recovery goals. I can provide in-the-moment support that can be used to help you navigate challenging situations or overwhelming emotions. It also helps you with accountability and you are encouraged to celebrate recovery "wins" with me as they happen. 

In-between Session Access

Identify what needs your eating disorder behaviors meet and develop other ways to meet those needs

Practice new coping skills to replace unhelpful behaviors

Challenge eating disorder thoughts and beliefs

Create space for you to make intentional decisions that align with personal values

Build tolerance in dealing with difficult emotions

Help you in taking responsibility for choices without shame and to be compassionate when mistakes are made

I will assist in helping you replace maladaptive behaviors with more adaptive means of coping. Together, we will gain greater insight into your own behaviors, discover new coping strategies, and create a lasting path of recovery. Together, we will do the following:

Assist with behavior change

This involves regular communication and collaboration between me, you, and any other members of the treatment team, such as therapists, dietitians, and medical providers. Through collaboration, I can ensure that each person involved in your recovery process is informed of our work together, your progress, and any obstacles that may arise.

SM, Mother of Coaching Client

When my daughter was diagnosed with an eating disorder, I knew we had to get a nutritionist and a therapist right away, and we did. We met Brandy about four months into treatment, and I regret not having met her at the very beginning of treatment because she has definitely been an instrumental part of our family’s recovery. She has helped me understand so much more than my daughter was able to put into words. My daughter absolutely looks forward to her sessions with Brandy, and she is always happier and more confident in her recovery process as soon as she finishes either an in-person exposure or an online session

Brandy is the best! Highly recommend! I truly feel we wouldn’t be where we are today without her!


“I would like to take the time to THANK YOU so much for guiding me through this recovery. Your heartfelt insight and understanding mean the world to me”.

get in touch

I will provide you with an assessment that will help me get to know you, identify where you currently are in your recovery, and the type of support that will be most beneficial.  

From there, our relationship will grow organically and I will come up with a customized approach to meeting specific goals that will get you to a place of healing and transformation.
