Kirsten Book

As a woman in recovery from an eating disorder , I know what it feels like to struggle. Thankfully, I continue to work to maintain my own recovery daily. I have been inspired by those who have supported me along my journey. I use my own experience to continue to draw empathy, compassion, and humility when working with my patients.
I have the unique opportunity to help improve an individual’s mental health, by not only utilizing medications and psychotherapy, but also by instilling hope, which I believe is just as powerful and effective as what any medication can do.

" All of your struggles are valid. You are not alone in your suffering. I see you, hear you, and validate you and your experience. I have no doubt it is real. "
