If you would have asked me eight years ago if I thought I’d be where I am today, my simple answer would have been no. I came to Rosewood in 2007 with hopes of walking out “cured” of my eating disorder. I had fought anorexia, bulimia, and over exercising since my teen years. Living a life without ED in my head sounded like an impossibility. But I was willing to try. I learned that the REAL recovery process starts after leaving the Ranch. I was given the tools, resources, and support I needed to fight. And when I stumbled, and had to re-enter treatment, I had no trouble choosing where I would go. Rosewood once again welcomed me with open arms, and helped me to regain my solid, grounded footing. They brought me back to life, and showed me how to use my tools to fight for the life I knew I wanted.

4 solid years of recovery later, I feel like I am truly living life for the first time. I am constantly in awe I am of my OWN strength, determination, and zest for life, now that I know how to channel it in a way that is nurturing to my body, mind, and soul. I can be a mother to my children, a support to my family and friends, and take care of my own needs in a healthy and nurturing manner. Today I am strong. I am beautiful, And I am 100% perfect, whole, complete, enough.

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Rosewood Ranch and their amazing team for helping me regain my life. Much love…
