Hi Everyone. This is a huge favor to ask.
Are you, are do any of you know of, a therapist or someone who can help a 23 year old girl in need.
I have a client who is in desperate need of counseling for bulimia. She cannot afford to pay anyone so i will do a barter with someone if they can help her a little bit. i can do free consults for raw and give my book and DVDs.
I want to help this women but i really think she needs to be talking to someone about her disorder and not JUST doing raw.
Thanks so much for any info you guys can provide!

That's wonderful of you to help this woman. I'm a licensed social worker, and I used to live in MD/DC so I might be able to help locate someone locally. I'd be happy to talk to her and I have bundled long distance. You can email me at email@example.com

Thanks so much everyone, if you can contact me as soon as you know if someone is available to help here that would be great. i do a lot of counseling with eating disorders but i think she needs someone else, this is big.

I spoke to a therapist friend at church this am...good news! She has lots of experience in working with people with eating disorders, *and* she does phone consultations. I explained the money issue and she will work her on it. I will PM you with her name and number. She's not a raw foodie (yet!) but she's interested in your book, etc. :)

I have recovered from Bulimia (17 yrs now). Fighting an eating disorder is a lifetime battle. I still battle with my weight and food. I no longer binge and purge, but I do think I have had an unhealthy relationship with food. I have since learned through reading and self-awareness and personal growth to recognize my dependency on food (especially during stressful events). That when I do turn to food for comfort or whatever, I am learning to recognize this and make concious choices. Will alway struggle with this (kind of like being a recovered alcoholic just with food).
If you client needs someone to talk to or email buddy, she is welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My yahoo messenger ID is also kiwismom95.
I will her well and my prayers are with her.

Thats great, i would imagine she would like to talk to others about this as well. i passed on your info to her.
Thanks so much!

Bless you for lifting your friend up
