Eating Disorders & Support Group

Many people are not aware of the amount of support out there.  Below is a listing of the local support groups for eating disorders (particularly anorexia nervosa & bulimia nervosa) in South Florida.  Please call and/or email before attending to confirm the meeting is still running.  If you or a loved one struggles with an eating disorder and need help, please contact me for any questions.  If the group that you attend is not right for you, please try another. There is help and hope available.

OA & Teens

I am currently working with a 13-year-old who suffers with anorexia.  I thought it was important for her to have added support so I started my search.  The local eating disorder clinics start at 14-years-old and older.  The OA meetings are for adults.  Although they do not turn anyone away, it is not encouraged.

I am thinking about forming a group for teens and young adults ages 12-20 for both males and females.  This would be for anyone who struggles with an eating disorder: anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating.  This group would be every Saturday for a minimum of 10 sessions.  Please let me know if you know someone who would be interested and/or have suggestions for a successful group.

For more information, please contact me.
