Recovery Stories: Connection and Advocacy

00:0000:00

This weeks podcast is a conversation with Aimee Becker on recovery, connection, and advocacy

 

Aimee Becker is the Chief Operating Officer of the Gaudiani Clinic. She spent 10 years dedicating herself to developing the infrastructure for Monte Nido & Affiliates. Inspired to join the field through her own recovery, Aimee joined Carolyn Costin when Monte Nido was only a six bed residential facility, as the Program Coordinator. Progressing to Director of Operations and then Chief Compliance Officer, Aimee oversaw Monte Nido & Affiliates’ expansion into six states. In addition to her strong commitment to superb programmatic and operational functioning, Aimee developed a deep engagement with the therapeutic values and processes inherent to the world of eating disorder treatment. Through years of leading groups on gender and sexuality at Monte Nido, Aimee further developed her fundamental belief in client-centered goals, a narrative approach to therapy, and the idea that the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem. She is developing training on queer competency for eating disorder professionals, highlighting non-binary constructs of gender and sexuality and non-assumptive models of therapeutic engagement.
