In this episode we take a detour through a slightly different topic for Paleo Baby. Disordered eating effects many people in many different ways. Eating too little, eating too much, body image, dieting, exercise, are all wrapped up in the definition and treatment of disordered eating. Unfortunately, those seeking help for this issue, and other mental health concerns, are often treated without regard to the person's biology, health challenges, or lifestyle, often leading to a long and bumpy recovery.
At Nourish Balance Thrive, we’ve learned that nothing can be treated in a vacuum. As alternative health care providers, we understand the importance of treating the whole person to get to the root cause. It’s rare to find mainstream practitioners who are willing to concede that diet and lifestyle might contribute to your overall health concerns, especially mental health. As a therapist, Erika Holmes defies the status quo and is a breath of fresh air in this important conversation. Join us as we break down a holistic approach to disordered eating- it’s main drivers, recovery, common questions, and a great discussion about what “normal eating” really is.
I’m a native Californian but now live and work in beautiful Denver Colorado. I have a Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) license in Colorado and California and a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. I graduated with honors as a member of Psi Chi Honor Society. With over 10 years of clinical experience both in agency work and in private practice, I have extensive experience working with clients in a wide range of ages, struggles, and goals.
I believe that therapy is great, but shouldn’t last forever. My goal is for us to work hard, work smart, and then work myself out of a job. I want to empower you to make changes in your life that decrease suffering, increase awareness, and assist you in creating a life worth living and relationships worth having.
