About Me

Hi, I’m Ginny. I’m on a mission to help parents raise kids who are free from food and eating issues.

I created this blog to give parents important information and advice when their kids have eating disorders.

I write about a combination of topics, from movies that are “safe” for eating disorder recovery to details about why eating disorders occur and how parents can help with recovery.

My goal is to educate parents about eating disorders while also empowering them to support their kids’ recovery. I try to include real-world examples to help illustrate common situations that I encounter when coaching parents.

I work from a place of education and compassion because I know that the best way for you to help your kid feel better is for you to feel better. You matter, and I’m here to help.

Let’s hang out

This eating disorders blog is written from a Health at Every Size® and Intuitive Eating perspective. That means I believe:

  • Every body has its own natural weight, and the less we mess with it, the better
  • Intentional weight loss is almost never effective or healthy
  • Every body has natural intuition about what and how much to eat. Our goal should always be to listen to intuition rather than food rules
  • Our bodies are both wise and powerful. It is healthy to listen to them

These foundational beliefs drive my work as a coach, my life as a person in recovery, and how I parent. I adopted these beliefs, which are based on solid scientific evidence, during my recovery from a 30-year eating disorder. After spending decades at war with my body, I found peace and healing in learning to trust it as wise, intuitive, and powerful.

If you’re curious about this approach, please reach out and I’ll be happy to tell you more about it.
