"Everyone needs help. That's the human condition."

- Max Allan Collins

HJ 1Hannah

I am a Boston native, a Pacific-Northwesterner at heart, and a current resident of San Diego  where I live with my husband, our two year old daughter, and our dog.

I have been in recovery from my eating disorder for six years. Learning about the biological basis of eating disorders and the need for full nutritional and weight restoration was a pivotal point in my journey. Mindfulness and other Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills have helped me maintain my recovery and manage my bipolar and anxiety disorders.
I graduated from University of Washington with a BA in Psychology and am currently pursuing my Master's in Social Work degree. I am committed to a career in the eating disorders field and in particular to expanding access to evidence-based treatments and creating new forms of support for those whose needs are not met by traditional treatment options.
I provide video-based meal support and text support. I also work collaboratively with clients and their nutritionist to plan meals and snacks that meet their nutritional needs. I am always happy to work with you to customize the type and amount of support I offer based on your needs.
In my free time, I enjoy reading mystery novels, volunteering with a dog rescue organization, and exploring southern California with my family.

My name is Whittni and I am in recovery from my own eating disorder. I struggled for 16 years before finding the real me who was hidden deep inside.  Some times it's one day one moment one second at a time and that is okay! I have a passion for helping people and understand it is not an easy journey. I have three children ages 6, 7, & 10. I am currently in school for my Masters in Counseling and one day hope to be a private practice therapist that specializes in Eating Disorders. I currently work as a Substance Abuse Counselor and seeing people make the changes on a daily basis while battling the voice inside their head is life changing. My favorite quote is, "Everything is okay in the end, if it's not okay it's not the end." Let me know if you have any questions about meal coaching!
