Eating Disorder Recovery Coach
Hello! I am so happy you have found me. My name is Sarah Lee, a Certified Eating Disorder Recovery Coach located in Dallas, TX and I work with local clients in-person and also via video conferencing worldwide.
It is never too late to recover! I work with all ages and specialize in adolescents while also helping to guide parents providing lots of tools and skills along the way. The road to recovery is as unique as each individual person and their story. I believe you need both science and soul for true healing, yet with a tailored approach along with the imperatives of personal understanding and the ability to relate. My own eating disorder plagued me for almost seven years in my twenties; however, for many many years I have been fully recovered and free. Yes, it is possible! My passion is helping girls and women who struggle with eating disorders, find freedom with food and peace within their bodies; moreover, learning acceptance of their journey and desire to fulfill their life purpose.
In addition to Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching, I am professionally certified in Mind-Body Nutrition, Dynamic Eating Psychology, and Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy.
Not only do I personally understand what it is like to have an eating disorder and experience the recovery journey, I also have the education and skills to help you.
What does it mean to be “Recovered?”
“The person can accept his or her natural body size and shape and no longer has a self-destructive or unnatural relationship with food or exercise. When you are recovered, you do not use eating disorder behaviors to deal with, distract from, or cope with other problems. When recovered, you will not compromise your health or betray your soul to look a certain way, wear a certain size or reach a certain number on the scale.” – Carolyn Costin

“My time with Sarah has been truly life changing. I have been a yoyo dieter my whole life. After every success and failure of each new diet, I found myself helpless and not able to trust my body, further confused and misguided as to why the latest "fix" failed. In working with Sarah, we began to closely examine and deconstruct my every day habits. In doing so, we were able to tweak and make adjustments. Now, I actually enjoy my food and eat less without being on a diet. I have also learned to be gentle with myself. I think this is critical for all of us, not just those of us working through body and eating challenges. I am happy to report than in the short time with Sarah, I have lost 15 pounds without restricting any specific foods or food groups. My journey continues and I am so grateful for everything Sarah has taught me!”
"During my time with Sarah, I realized just how much I used food in every state of emotion. From happiness to sadness to anger. I even used it as a reward system, but at the same time would always feel like I was making a bad choice. Sarah helped me to see my relationship with food was not something to get rid of or hate, yet learn from. She also helped me to see that there was something so much deeper going on. It is hard for me to open up about certain things, but Sarah is so easy to talk to and it all just seem to poor out. I’m so grateful for each conversation we had!"
Thank you, Sarah. I had this profound feeling of acceptance from our sessions. Acceptance of my body image, acceptance of eating habits, and acceptance of my feelings when I feel them. That is what I took away. I’m looking at food in a whole new light. I appreciate you helping with that mindset!!!
"Sarah is one of the most inspirational women I’ve ever met. She understood exactly what my struggles were and empowered me to work through them at my own pace. Without her, I would have never gotten as far as I have. She is insightful, and extremely passionate about helping others."
“Sarah has hands down changed my life! She believes in me and supports me through the hardest parts of my life. She is the part of my team that I didn’t know I was missing and will be a huge part of my journey to full recovery! She gets eating disorders because she’s lived it. My heart beats happy beats every time we talk. She makes me feel like I can really do this! And I’ve never felt that way about recovery in my life. Sarah, You are very gifted at what you do and you’re perfect for it! Thanks for investing in me!”
"Sarah Lee is one of the most amazing people that have come into my life. I am only 14, but she is one the my biggest blessings to me. She has taught me that food is not something to be afraid of. She's also helped with my body image so much. I would recommend her any day of the week because she is just one of the nicest and genuine people I've ever met and always is thoughtful of you and thanks to her I'm fully recovered. I don't know where I would be without her!!"
