Christine Selby, PhD, CEDS
Christine Selby, PhD, CEDS
Short Business Description:

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.

Janelle Lenhoff, PsyD
Janelle Lenhoff, PsyD
Short Business Description:

I provide individual therapy in person and virtually. Virtual sessions are conducted using a secure, HIPAA compliant software platform and are a great option when access to providers is limited, there are transportation barriers, or more flexible scheduling is helpful. I utilize an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach which focuses on identifying/clarifying values, exploring thoughts, developing mindfulness, and cultivating self compassion in order to move towards a valued life. Rather than living in accordance with the eating disorders values, clients reconnect with who they really are. I strongly ascribe to a HAES philosophy and utilize intuitive eating principals when clinically appropriate. I highly value a team approach including parents/family. Parents are valuable members of the treatment team. I strive to provide parents with psychoeducation, support, and open communication so that they can support their childs recovery.

Kathy Hicks M.S. Ed. LPC (TX), LCPC (IL), LPCC (OH)
Short Business Description:

I have been working with children, adolescents, adults, and their families for over 25 years. I first worked as a Licensed Dietician and enjoyed working with people using a holistic approach to nutrition where the whole person, including lifestyle, is important. Over time, I found my attention was more and more on the psychological needs of the people I worked with and began to pursue an education and career course where I specialized in counseling. My professional status is a mental health professional, although my experience in dietetics certainly helps in working with people struggling with an eating disorder. My overall focus is working with people who are overcoming psychological difficulties in life. I am currently a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. My passion is helping people explore concerns, identify goals and achieve solutions.

I believe that disordered Eating is a complex issue involving human development, family systems, stress, exercise, nutrition, society norms, and culture. I also believe it takes advanced training in order to become a competent provider.

Recovery from an eating disorder is about rediscovering who you are by creating a rich and meaningful life. Because of this I use a combination of cognitive behavioral and existential concepts with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My goal is to provide a nurturing non-judgmental, Person-Centered approach to offer support and help clients determine their goals are and how to best reach them. I value mindfulness and believe in an intuitive approach to eating.
