Ashley Perrone, MPH, RD, CDN
I aim to empower parents to make decisions in regards to feeding their child based on Ellyn Satter's division of responsibility and developmentally appropriate nutrition messages. My goal is to alleviate some of their frustrations/concerns about their child's eating habits and/or body size by using evidence-based interpretations of growth charts, eating behaviors, and nutrition. I offer support on developing a positive body image, which extends more than just "liking" your body, so that parents can model this for their children. My hope is that this work we do together allows both the parents and the child to adopt behaviors that promote body trust and physical, emotional and psychological well being.
Beth Mayer LICSW
I have been working with people struggling with body image and eating disorders since 1983. Having recovered from an eating disorder as a teen and young adult, I have dedicated my life to trying to support others in truly understanding this illness. Parents are a child's most important support system and they should always feel welcomed into a therapist's office. I work with the family and ask them to join the team as collaborators.

Bianca Skilbeck, Clinical Hypnotherapist & Counsellor
In all sessions I do counseling and I help my clients to explore the principles of HAES and intuitive eating as they are ready. I practice from a trauma-informed perspective and frequently help clients to brainstorm ways in which they can manage difficult life situations and relationships. If the client is also interested in hypnotherapy, then we incorporate a range of different hypnotic techniques into the session which can help to integrate the counseling. I can help support parents who have kids with eating or body issues through education, building compassion skills, and teaching relational skills.
Bonnie Killip, APD
I offer practical and usable nutrition education for those in recovery from eating issues as well as the parents and carers of people with eating disorders. I am a clinical and medical hypnotherapist and assist kids to reconnect with their inner guidance and develop the internal skills and resources to set them up for a life of emotional regulation, self-love, resilience, and happiness. The focus is never on body weight, shape or size, and always on mental wellness. I have 15 years of lived experience with anorexia nervosa and if there was one thing I could change it was that I found great treatment sooner. I am thankful to my parents for never giving up on finding that treatment and making appointments for me because I believe without it I would have lived the rest of my life holding onto moments of forced physical wellness but never quite mentally well.

Christine Selby, PhD, CEDS
My approach is eclectic in that my way of being with clients/patients is client-centered, I conceptualize psychodynamically, and I use CBT techniques when indicated. Although I treat adult patients I am willing to work with parents about how best to support their child who has eating/body/weight issues. First and foremost I talk with them about making sure anyone providing treatment to their child is weight neutral and educated in what eating disorders are/are not. I encourage them to rely on those providers to do what they are trained to do and that parents should do the same - that is they are best equipped to love and support their child in a way that no provider can (the caveat to this is FBT/Maudsley method for tx of anorexia nervosa). I allow parents to express their concerns and ask whatever questions they have - providing the best answers I have and/or directing them to exceptional resources.
