Welcome to Virginia’s Eating Disorder Resource Site that provides local assistance to families, friends and professionals.  My mission is to raise awareness and to provide assistance and resources so that our community can better support youth and young adults struggling with an eating disorder.

My family has worked with home-based treatment teams, treatment facilities and advocates in the field of eating disorders.  I bring  knowledge, compassion and understanding from all aspects and experience on the continuum of treatment.

I have researched and reviewed all resources provided on this site to ensure that you will get the quality care that I needed when my family first embarked on this journey.  I accept no monetary reimbursement from any specialist, author or treatment facility.  I only wish to provide our community with the best resources available.

Recovery is possible!  I encourage you to stay the course.
