Prior to her work at Hyde Park, she was the Clinical Supervisor and Consultant to the Eating Disorders Program and created the Yoga Therapy Program at The Recovery Village. She provided staff trainings in the treatment of co-occurring disorders (eating disorders and substance use disorders) on site and in the professional community.
Sandee draws on her vast experience to provide individual and group training and supervision, consulting, and Better Body Esteem™ workshops for treatment centers, private practice therapists, and yoga teachers.
In Sandee’s own words: “Creating and building White Picket Fence Counseling Center has been most rewarding. Clients have the opportunity to work with me and my well-trained staff of mental health clinicians, along with the dietitians and other therapists who have their private practices here. I am proud of how our clients benefit from the integrative and individualized treatment setting I created.”

A message from Jillian: “Have you been bouncing from diet to diet looking for answers and results that you just can’t find? Do you feel like it’s impossible to be happy in your own skin? You must be exhausted and ready for a change of pace. I get it. Diet culture and body dissatisfaction surround us but therapy and connection can help you find a way out. I can help you to see that there’s more to life than body and food obsession. I am passionate about helping individuals to recover from eating disorders and body image issues, while helping them to discover freedom with food, body appreciation and self-compassion.”
