Website: www.katheevarner.com

Treatment Model: I have over 30 years experience assisting clients with weight, body and eating issues. I use mindfulness, nutrition education, the Intuitive Eating philosophy (returning to an inner knowing about our body’s needs based on natural cues that we have lost touch with or override) and Somatic Experiencing Therapy (a healing process from the effects of shame and criticism about our body and what we eat) in a safe and warm environment that provides space for clients to build trust in themselves and the healing process.

I work with clients suffering from: Anorexia, Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia, Chronic Dieting, Compulsive Overeating, Laxative Abusive, Night Eating Syndrome, Obesity and Obesity Prevention, Restraint Eating, Restrictive Eating and Ruled Bound Eating.

Treating Eating Disorders since the Year: 1982

Payment Options: Cash/Check and Blue Cross Blue Shield

I work with all levels and degrees of eating problems/disorders whether someone is just dabbling or experimenting to those who have lived with their struggle on a chronic basis. I believe food is a great teacher in rebuilding a healthy relationship with food, oneself, and with one’s body. The same skills we learn in building a healthy relationship with food and our bodies are very similar to the life skills we need to have in all healthy relationships in our lives. On a personal level, I had my own battle with food four decades ago as I struggled to cope with the difficulties in my life. How fortunate my suffering and recovery has turned into a blessing. I would not be the person I am today if I had not been forced to reach deep within to discover my true self. I believe my journey was a way to prepare me to help others. My story may be different, but there are similar themes, thought patterns and behaviors. I know the pain and despair and overcame the battle.

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth – not going all the way, and not starting. Buddha

Treatment Model: Do you feel marginalized or alienated by societal and family expectations? Do you sometimes feel like you're living a lie?

I believe that only when you feel enough support and safety are you able to begin making choices for health and recovery.

Treatment Model: Tapestry was developed to provide an affordable alternative to the high cost of extended treatment for eating disorders. We utilize a community-based recovery model that limits cost while providing a rich interweaving of resources. Treatment modalities include: Insight-oriented and cognitive-behavioral therapies, Equine Therapy, Nutritional Counseling, Expressive Arts groups including movement and art therapy, Real-world grocery shopping and restaurant practice, Healthy food preparation with Nutritionist, DBT Skills Groups, Yoga, Massage, Trager, and EMDR. Tapestry's Philosophy is centered around putting recovery into the control of the client while providing support, skills training, and education by staff. We do not lock the doors to the kitchen or follow our clients to the restroom. We work our clients to gain their trust so they are able to share with staff when urges to binge/purge/restrict arise. This assists in allowing the client and staff to identify triggers while in treatment, rather than be shielded from them and relapse when faced with those triggers after discharge. Our highly skilled staff are here to support and provide guidance throughout every aspect of treatment. Our Nutritionist works with each client on an Individual Basis to provide meal planning, nutrition education, cooking meals, and grocery shopping. A major part of our program is centered around the client learning to shop for and prepare meals that meet their nutritional needs. An individual meal plan is prepared for Breakfast and Lunch. A group meal plan is prepared for Dinner with the group coming together once a week to plan their meals that will meet each clients nutritional needs. We prepare the client to be able to grocery shop and prepare their meals for themselves and family and meet nutritional needs following discharge. It is our goal to assist our clients to gain all skills necessary to maintain recovery throughout the rest of their lives. We work with women who are actively seeking treatment and want to engage in a recovery program. For additional information, visit www.tapestrync.com or call Tina Nowak at 828-884-2475.

I view therapy as a collaborative effort between therapist and client. I serve as a guide who knows the terrain of the eating-disordered world, but each client is a unique individual whose path of recovery is specific to them. I endeavor to make therapy a safe place for clients to speak openly, to be vulnerable, to share the things that are hard to let others see or know. I respect the inner wisdom of each client. And I help my clients distinguish between the voice of the eating disorder and that of their true, core selves. I offer two therapy groups for women with eating and body image concerns: an anorexia/bulimia group for women dealing with restricting/bingeing/purging/compulsive exercise, and an overeaters group for women who eat compulsively/binge eat. There is magic in relating to others who share our struggles. Isolation and shame melt away, and group members have fellow travelers on the journey of recovery.

Dr. Miller believes each person who seeks counseling is unique, so she customizes treatment according to their needs: Mind, Body and Spirit. Healing is possible and Joy is restored as the individual carves out their own path toward health and authenticity. A team approach is utilized to offer family therapy, group therapy and individual therapy. Her colleague, David Wiley, LPC offers therapy also for eating disorders and can utilize his anxiety and stress management specialties in treatment: Biofeedback & Alpha-Stem, exercise coaching. He also provides individual, couples, and family therapy along with individual therapy. Mr. Wiley has over 30 years experience in the counseling field. Dr. Miller and Mr. Wiley provide specialized co-therapy work when needed. Susan also integrates a connected team of community professionals such as psychiatrist, medical physicians (traditional & alternative), nutritionist, exercise coach and equine therapist depending on the needs of the client. Dr. Miller also has a Coaching collaborative, Lighted Path™ Coaching & Creativity Workshop. (www.lightedpathcoaching.org).  She is a Life Coach, Certified Creativity Coach and Entrepreneur Coach as well as a life-time artist. In a well-stocked Art Studio, she provides Creativity therapy which is designed for the client to explore their healing through expressive arts experiences. Creativity opens up the person to the right side of the brain which facilitates an avenue for healing that influences recovery, taking them out of the eating disorder thinking and into a deeper place in touch with their own inner world of emotion. As one enters into creative exploration, they tend to begin to unearth their authentic self, leaving room to move out of their eating disorder. Creativity Workshops include Life Vision work, Life Balance, and Creative exploration with a Coaching and therapeutic foundation. She uses mixed-media activities such as spirit collage, intuitive art journaling, intuitive painting, paper crafts, and guided imagery. Her work with clients in this area is based on the belief "without vision, people will perish." By exploring life purpose and developing a vision for their lives, a person can not only recover from their eating disorder issues, but can begin to flourish in the life that they deserve to live.
