As an Eating Disorder Recovery Coach, I focus on the awareness and acceptance of the here and now. I do not psychoanalyze the past. I will assist you in honoring your emotions while emphasizing accountability and implementing healthy living modifications for recovery. I focus on strengths and never dwell on perceived weaknesses. I will develop specific strategies alongside your team which will assist you in managing triggers and regulating your nervous system. I will educate you on why we nourish the gut, brain, and body. I offer text support and meal support. I believe full recovery is possible for everybody!Client Testimonial: "Working with Merrit has been a game changer in my recovery process. She is so kind and really cares. She truly believes recovery is possible for anyone. I look forward to my sessions with her every week. I always come away from them feeling challenged, more confident in myself, and so encouraged and built up. Her energy and passion to help people is so powerful. Since I began working with her it has truly been such an amazing process of growth and change for me and she has been there for me every step of the way to support and encourage me to keep fighting, even on my worst days. Do yourself a favor and contact her today!" -BM

What sets me apart

I hold a certification in eating disorder recovery coaching from The Carolyn Costin Institute. I am a magna cum laude graduate of Southern Methodist University where I also earned a Master of Science in Health Promotion Management degree. I fully recovered from bulimia, and I use my own recovery experience to provide compassionate recovery care and empower my clients to a life of health and wellness.

Treatment Models

My coaching is based on the science of neuroplasticity and the power of mindfulness. Implementing a holistic coaching plan, I combine science-based techniques to assist you in reconnecting your mind with your body’s natural cues, shifting your mindset, and understanding the connection between the mind, body, and soul.
