“And I said to my body. Softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’” – Nayyirah Waheed

It takes a lot of courage and strength to seek out help or support in recovery. You are not alone and the battle(s) that you are facing right now will help shape you into the person you will become.

My name is Kailin and I am a Certified Eating Disorder Recovery Coach who’s passion lies in helping others who are struggling with their relationship with food and their bodies. Recovery is one of the hardest things you will ever do but, with my help, I hope we can work on healing negative body image and repair our relationship with food and, most importantly, the relationship with yourself that has been lost along the way.

From my own experience, I know just how isolating and difficult recovery can be. However, I also understand how you can grow from these experiences and come out on the other side stronger than ever. I will do everything in my power to help you have a successful and safe recovery. Using my certification and my personal experience, I would like to support you throughout your recovery journey.

Healing your relationship with food and your body is no easy feat. Being here on my website is already a step in the right direction. If that’s the only step you take today, that’s okay! Small steps towards recovery are still the right steps.

I started dieting when I was ten years old. And every single diet I tried failed. Never for a second did I consider that the problem was with the diets and not with me. I blamed myself for every failed diet, thinking that I was simply not motivated or disciplined enough. It hadn’t crossed my mind that diets don’t need to fulfill their promises. I hadn’t realized, at the age of ten, that this was a billion dollar industry that left people more miserable with their bodies compared to when they had started dieting.

I continued to move from diet to diet, and I never found the happiness I was seeking. I was never thin enough or good enough, and I could always find something else that I wanted to change about myself. I ended up developing three (!) different eating disorders over the span of ten years.

After I had lost my period for a couple of months, I had visited a doctor who gave me one of the biggest wakeup calls of my life: if I didn’t change my habits, there was a possibility that I wouldn’t be able to fall pregnant in the future. It was always my greatest dream to become a mother and the fact that I could be permanently damaging my body snapped the blinders straight off.

I sought out recovery right away. It was a lonely and isolating journey for me. I did not have the best support system at the time and also tried to keep my recovery to myself because I was ashamed. I remember how isolated I felt which is why I decided to share my journey on social media, through Instagram (clickable link) and YouTube (clickable link). Slowly, thousands of people began to follow along my journey. They began to get comfortable with me as well and share their own stories. Soon, they were letting me know that it was because of me that they have improved their relationship with their bodies and food, or how they are now going to therapy because of me.

At the beginning of 2020 I was contracted to work an office job for just over a year. I contemplated for a long while about what I wanted to do afterwards. I didn’t like working in an office and the work wasn’t meaningful to me. From there, I received the encouragement of those who follow me on social media to pursue recovery coaching.

Now, I am a Certified Eating Disorder Coach (Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy Program [EDIT]) which is developed and presented by Dr. Dorie McCubbrey (MSEd, PhD, LPS, CEDS). Though I am not a substitute for professional medical treatment, I can work with you alongside a treatment team or independently depending on the support you are looking for.
