When I suspected I had an eating disorder, Julia was the first person I contacted. She worked as a dietician at my school and I had heard of her specialization in the issue. Throughout my journey to recovery, she taught me what it means to be “healthy” for your own body, gently corrected my misperceptions of health and wellbeing, helped me identify root causes of my eating disorder, and guided me through uncomfortable situations to help me grow. With kindness, understanding, patience, and extensive knowledge, and without judgement, she helped me realize what was happening to my mind and body and gave me the tools I needed on my path to recovery. Julia was the member of my recovery team who stayed even while others faded to the background. I am forever grateful for all she did.
