Today, Kathy welcomes Rachel Coleman, LMFT, CEDS, and they have a conversation on the impact of mother’s body acceptance on her children.
Rachel is originally from New Jersey but moved to sunny Southern California to earn my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Her passion for working with Eating Disorder clients is fueled by a deep empathy for people, especially women, who hurt their bodies as they work through their self-doubt, traumas and self-esteem issues.
Rachel is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 12 years of experience treating Eating Disorders at both an inpatient treatment center and in private practice where she focuses on guiding adolescents and women to break free from diet culture and stop evaluating their worth by the number on the scale.
Rachel is a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, has a certification of completion in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Maternal Mental Health, and is a Certified Intuitive Eating PRO. Rachel served on the Board of the Orange County chapter of IAEDP for 5 years and speaks on the topic of Eating Disorder Treatment at local graduate schools.
Rachel is also the co-host of Mom Genes The Podcast, where she and colleague Tina LaBoy, RD teach Moms to understand their genes so they can love the jeans they are in. The podcast is available on multiple streaming platforms. They can be found at www.momgenesthepodcast.com
