We're a unique counseling practice dedicated to your recovery and growth. We have developed a reputation as a comprehensive and effective mental health practice specializing in eating disorders. Our practice has expanded to include treatment for other mental health issues, offering a balanced, holistic, and integrated approach to recovery. We utilize our team of licensed providers who are skilled in traditional and supplemental therapies. We also offer nutrition services, gentle touch therapies, and other alternative treatments. 

Your individual treatment plan will be developed by your counselor based on your goals and expectations. Your plan may include a few or several therapies such as group therapy, a nutrition plan to help your mood, sleep, or energy levels, art therapy, or massage. We call this Collaborative Wholeness.

We live in our bodies and yet are often disconnected from them; Our goal is to help you reconnect with your authentic self. We look forward to helping you on your journey!

Following the Non-Diet Approach to Nutrition

We believe in the non-diet, Health at Every Size, approach to managing weight because it utilizes a mindful-based eating approach that helps support self-esteem and body acceptance. 

What is the Non-Diet Approach for Health at Every Size?

There are Six Parts to Health at Every Size

  1. Good health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being 
  2. Human beings come in a variet of shapes and sizes 
  3. There is NO ideal body size, shape, BMI or body composition
  4.  Self-esteem and body image are strongly linked
  5.  Each person is responsible for taking care of his/her own body 
  6. Appearance stereotyping is wrong

Success Stories

I worked with Melinda for approximately two years when I still lived in the area. Over the years I've had several different therapists for eating disorders and an inpatient stay in a center that is at the top internationally, but Reconnections was by far the most helpful for me. I was understood and challenged in a way no other therapist had been able to do. I'm almost to year 5 of recovery now, and still using the inner changes Melinda helped me make. I'm positive my life wouldn't be so healthy, happy, and free without all I learned and accepted through Melinda.
