"Each day at Oliver-Pyatt Centers, I get to work alongside bright, driven and caring clinicians. We lift each other up, helping support each other through the highs and lows of this complex work. I also get to meet clients who share their most vulnerable moments and let me in on something profoundly personal: their relationship with food. I feel so blessed to spend my days working alongside (mostly) women, helping other women to do one of the most radical things possible: to learn to reconnect, understand and honor their body’s natural cues for nourishment even when that feels uncomfortable. I get to help them learn to communicate with their bodies, understand their intentions behind eating patterns and hopefully find peace with food and compassion for their bodies. I feel so blessed to be a part of their journey to empowerment, trust and self-compassion."
