This is a photo of Tara and Joe welcoming visitors to our exhibit table at a recent Florida School Counselors Association event. We do a lot of work with local schools, shedding light on the challenging subject of eating disorders and giving teachers and families somewhere to turn when they see a young person struggling.
We also reach out to those young people, as we did on Wednesday, November 4th at Trinity Preparatory School. I co-led a presentation with Candace Chemtob, licensed dietician, carefully designed to educate young girls about healthy nutrition and eating disorders without triggering extreme behaviors. We also brought two young women who beautifully shared their stories and personal recovery triumphs.
At the White Picket Fence Counseling Center, we are committed to helping our community and providing support and resources for those struggling with eating issues. You can read about other recent and upcoming events below.
