Beginning the journey of recovery was definitely not easy with my eating disorder. The binging & purging completely took over my life until I had to drop out of school and get kicked out of my apartment. I was completely entrenched in my food thoughts and felt very ashamed. Not only was Kayla incredibly knowledgable about balanced nutrition, she showed kindness and patience. She had faith in my recovery even when I was hitting rock bottom. She helped come up with detailed meal plans to counter my powerful disordered urges and cheered me on when I was struggling. Even when I had difficulties following my balanced meal plans, Kayla would think of new ideas and strategies to help me get right back on track. Though it’s taken a lot of hard work, I have slowly been able to piece my life back together much thanks to Kayla’s kindness and dedication as a dietitian. She was always willing to go the extra mile to help me and her impressive background in nutrition has made her extremely easy to trust. Kayla is truly one of the most compassionate people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and she alleviated many of the concerns I had about food. I’m so glad to have met her and I’m extremely lucky that she gave me the tools to successfully start my recovery.
