Eating Disorder Recovery Speakers - Kristen Brunello

Imagine your eating disorder only taking up 30% of your headspace. Imagine it taking up none. Life can get better. You can feel better. Hope and inspiration brought to you weekly by powerful recovery speakers. When Kristen got out of eating disorder residential treatment for the last time, she noticed a major gap in her care: among her treatment team there was no one saying, “I’ve been there. I get it. My life without my eating disorder is so full. Let me help you get there too.” As an eating disorder recovery coach, Kristen hopes to fill that gap. The Eating Disorder Recovery Speakers podcast is a platform for people to share their stories of eating disorder recovery.
