    Ep. 069: How to (Ethically) Share Your Recovery Story with Colleen Reichmann

    Show Notes:
    In this episode, I talk with Dr. Colleen Reichmann, a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in eating disorders. She works in her private practice (Wildflower Therapy) in Philadelphia, PA, and has also worked at various treatment facilities including University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro Center for Eating Disorder Care, and The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt. Colleen herself is recovered from an eating disorder, and this experience sparked her passion for spreading knowledge and awareness that recovery is possible. She is deeply committed to Health at Every Size and body liberation, and considers herself a fat-positive clinician. Colleen speaks at national and regional eating disorder conferences, and writes about body image and eating disorders for Project HEAL, The Mighty, Recovery Warriors, and more. In this episode, Colleen briefly shares how and why she became an eating disorders clinician. Then, she dives deep into the subject of self-disclosure as a clinician. Colleen discusses why she decided to disclose her own recovery from an eating disorder, and the specific boundaries that she believes are important to set when sharing personal information during sessions or online.
    In the episode we talk about:

    EP. 068: In the Thick of Eating Disorder Recovery with Shira Rosenbluth

    In this episode I talk Shira Rosenbluth, a social worker/therapist by day and a style blogger by night, known for her blog “A Sequin Love Affair.”  Her blog encourages having fun and dressing in a way that reflects who you are, regardless of budget or body size. The blog also chronicles Shira’s recovery from an eating disorder; this is something that she wasn’t always open about. In this interview, Shira shares why it was important for her, as a therapist, to disclose that she is still in recovery. She also discusses the nuances of being both a fashion blogger, who shares photos of her body, and a health-at-every-size advocate, who believes everyone is more than their body. Further, she shares the many barriers she has faced with access to treatment, and describes that obstacles that many individuals face while trying to pursue recovery.  
    In the episode we talk about:
    Why Shira felt encouraged to disclose her struggle with an eating disorder on her blog. Barriers to eating disorder treatment (insurance, weight stigma, and more). The nuances of being a body positive fashion blogger. Resources:

    Ep 67: Perfectionism and Grief with Simi Botic

    In this episode I talk to Simi Botic, health coach and Author of Letting Go of Leo: How I Broke Up with Perfection. We talk about Simi’s relationship with perfectionism and how that bled into her relationship with food and her body. What I love so much about this episode is that we talk so much about what breaking up with perfection (especially around food) can do for your whole life, not just how you feel about your food and your body. Simi talks about how she ultimately changed her whole career trajectory and how we both felt like we were both able to be present for the highs and the lows without the burden of food worry.
    In the episode we talk about:
    How Simi’s relationship with food and her body had evolved Simi’s transition from lawyer to health coach Perfectionism and it’s downfall Our experiences of losing our dads Grief and how intuitive eating has helped us through this process Resources:

    In this episode I talk to Soraya Chemaly, an award winning writer and author of Rages Becomes Her, the Power of Women’s Anger. After reading Soraya’s book last year I was so excited to finally have her on the podcast to talk about all of the parallels between women’s anger, diet culture, and body image. And as expected, she did not disappoint. This episode is chock full of amazing nuggets of wisdom from Soraya and ends on a more inspirational note, to help us all use our anger for the betterment of ALL bodies.
    In the episode we talk about:
    Why Soraya’s book is not a self-help book. Anger and gender norms. Why confidence isn’t always a good thing. How suppressed anger (or living in a culture that suppresses women’s anger) can disrupt interoceptive awareness. Gaslighting 101. How to move forward with this information. Resources:

So validating and encouraging

I listen to multiple podcasts every day, but can honestly say the most recent episode of this podcast with Simi Botic was one of the most moving and humbling episode I have ever listened to. I laughed, cried, subscribed to this podcast and bought Simi’s book. Such a blessing in my day!

Amazing

This podcast is wonderful. I learn so much from Jessi and all of her guests. The podcast as a whole is a wonderful tool for resisting diet culture and body shame.

I’m extremely picky...and I would recommend this to EVERYONE

There are VERY few podcasts o recommend knowing with a clear conscious that the messages they receive will be uplifting and life changing. This is absolutely in my top 5. (And I listen to A LOT of podcasts. Jessi’s energy is bright and warm and you feel like she’s been your girlfriend since elementary school. Her topics are important and she adds much needed conversation around bodies to a culture obsessed with perfection. Love this podcast!
