Dannielle B. Grossman is a California licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice in Truckee, California. She also works by phone and FaceTime with clients throughout California.
Danielle understands that food deprivation and fear responses around eating are at the core of all eating disorders and disordered eating patterns. She helps clients to truly get it that their struggles with food are not their fault and do not mean ANYTHING negative about them. It is a powerful and empowering shift when clients can observe that their patterns with eating are simply their brainbodies doing their job to ensure survival amidst real or perceived threats to getting the food they want or need. Then, the work of therapy is getting out of this chronic threat mode with eating by developing patterns with food that are based in full nourishment, unconditional permission to eat and an ability to honor all signals of hunger.
Danielle’s work is based in compassion, an understanding of trauma and survival responses and current science in the fields of weight stigma and eating disorders.

In this podcast Tabitha talks to B, a guy who totally didn't have anorexia ... but probably did!
B thought of himself as a normal guy, doing normal things: obsessively tracking calories, running absurd distances, and hiding in closets to avoid being invited to lunch. After an incident involving a blog post, evolutionary biology, and a semi-anonymous e-mail exchange, he did the normal thing: he researched and wrote a guide on anorexia recovery, and then started following it.

In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Hannah, about eating disorders and cerebral palsy.
Tabitha's note: I have worked with a number of clients with anorexia who also have cerebral palsy. The aspects of body image and body control justification that Hannah speaks of in this podcast I have witnessed in every client I have worked with who also have cerebral palsy. That's not to say it exists in all, but certainly people with disabilities are very under-represented in eating disorder treatment and advocacy.
