Consultation for Professionals

Hi, I'm Cherie Miller, LPC!
Hi, I’m Cherie Miller, LPC!

When I started recovery myself many years ago, I was harmed by a therapist who did not have the appropriate experience or skills to work effectively with an eating disorder client. Now, many years later, I too often hear similar stories from clients when they start seeing me. I believe these therapists are probably wonderful practitioners with the best of intentions who just need some additional training.

Ethically and legally, we should never practice outside our competence, but this is especially true with eating disorders, which are serious mental health disorders with dangerous medical complexities. That’s why I started offering consultation and trainings to help other therapists become ED-competent.

How Professional Consultation Can Help

Professional consultation services can help you make correct diagnoses, as well as develop and execute effective treatment plans for clients with eating disorders. It can also be helpful in identifying growth areas, and I can recommend resources for learning. Lastly, we can discuss if there are any personal issues you might have (e.g. your own issues with food or body image) that could interfere with your work with clients with eating disorders. 

My Qualifcations

I have a Master’s in Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. Before starting Food Freedom Therapy™, I worked as a program therapist at Center for Discovery, an outpatient eating disorder clinic in Addison, TX. Before that, I was a counselor at the Eating Disorder Center of Denver’s Connections House, and was a support group leader and volunteer at The Eating Disorder Foundation (EDF) in Denver. I have 15 years years of experience as an eating disorder mentor, speaker, educator, and advocate. I am a member of the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Foundation (iaedp) and the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH). I also love to speak on topics related to food and body freedom, so check out my professional speaking page to listen to my podcast and radio appearances!
