“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Please note I will be taking clients after August 2021.
In my former career I worked as a professional model for ten years, where I observed a large percentage of the models who had an eating disorder. I have a B.A. in psychology from California Southern University with honors and I am working on getting into a dual Psy.D. program in December 2021 in Northern California where I’d like to specialize in clinical psychology. My passion is helping others recover from eating disorders as I am a recovered individual myself (since 2013), which is why I chose to become EDIT certified and become a recovery coach. In addition to my personal recovery, training and education, I have written and co-written four books on mental health and trauma, which you can find out more about on my website: www.nikkidubose.com.
I know what it’s like to be in that place where you think you will never, ever recover from your eating disorder. I was there. I struggled with an eating disorder for seventeen years of my life. I am thirty-six years old now, and on the verge of getting into a doctoral psychology program for clinical psychology. How did I end up from being the patient to being one who is helping others? It was not easy, it was the most difficult journey of my life.
There were many lessons I learned along my recovery journey, and they will be different for you. But one of the biggest lessons I can pass on to you is to never give up on yourself. You are worth every bit of recovery, and you owe it to your SELF to get better and live life to the fullest. My life drastically changed for the better the moment I decided to dig my heels in and recover NO MATTER WHAT. I had that mentality – no matter what, I decided, I was going to see my recovery through. I wish the same for you and am here to walk beside you.
