Working with a mentor can add invaluable support and perspective for someone struggling with their eating disorder. A mentor has lived experience and is there to walk alongside the participant; asking pertinent questions, guiding choices without judgement, helping to establish new behaviors, challenging their ways of thinking, and ultimately providing hope that recovery is possible.

"Mentoring with Shira has not only been helpful, it has been essential for me. It is certainly a vital component in my path to recovery." -Chase Cunningham, Participant
Fees: Mentoring virtually through zoom is 1-2 times per week and between 30-60 min (sometimes starts as twice, then decreases to once weekly), with text or email communication in between if/when needed. Family check-ins are encouraged in order to support the process and discuss challenges. When a mentee and I meet, we work to dig below the surface to understand what purpose the eating disorder serves and how to meet those needs in more effective ways; as well as learning and trying new coping mechanisms. We set goals together and troubleshoot when goals are not met. The foundation of my mentoring is to empower people to take ownership of their life and achieve recovery. The cost for mentoring is $50 for 30min, $85 for 60 min, we are able to make some accommodations with a sliding scale if families are experiencing financial strain. There is a late cancellation fee (less than 24 hours) and a no-show fee of $35 that will be charged to the participant, when appropriate.
After the consult is scheduled, there is a $5 donation charge for no-shows.
