Bojena Kelmendi, M.S.W. R.S.W.

Registered Social Worker, Therapist

12-421 Greenbrook Dr., Kitchener, Ontario

Eating disorder can overshadow your life, stealing the joy and self-respect. I have worked with many who struggled with eating disorders and disordered eating and yes, it is possible to fight it and move beyond it. In the therapy with me you become aware of your strengths, your limitations and areas that need strengthening. You discover you are not alone and let the guilt and shame sweep away and become stronger. You learn how to create healthier boundaries, recognize triggers and become emotionally and mentally stronger.

Registered Psychological Associate, Clinical Psychology

195 King St W, Unit 303, KITCHENER, Ontario

Often, poor and unhealthy eating patterns are connected with poor emotional management and low self esteem. I have seen eating disorders co-exist with past and unresolved trauma. Using cognitive, emotional focused and mindfulness based therapy, we will get to the root of your unhealthy eating behaviour. We will explore inner resources you have to cope with emotional reactivity. Quite often, healing trauma from the past might be required in your healing journey. Thus, allowing you to have a more positive and in control feeling in your life.

Leanna Callum, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Art Therapist

610 Lancaster Street West, Kitchener, Ontario

Leanna has specialized training and experience in treating thoughts and behaviours associated with eating disorders. She works with individuals and their families. Leanna’s approach is to address disordered thinking about food and the body, and to work toward a healthy sense of the self and the body. She uses various theoretical approaches to identify and address underlying contributing factors to the expression of symptoms. Leanna also focuses on relational dynamics and the connection to the self and others, particularly family members, as an important consideration in creating effective coping and lasting change. She also considers cultural influences. The development of self-compassion and acceptance are keys to this effective approach to treatment.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Sarah Schlote, MA, RP, CCC, SEP

Registered Psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

5420 Highway 6 North, rooms 338-342 (East Entrance), Guelph, Ontario

The Refuge's team views eating disorders (like addictions) compassionately, as a symptom of unresolved emotional pain or trauma. Our therapists can support you in the journey towards processing and healing the underlying hurts that are resulting in disordered eating as a coping strategy. Together, we can build the emotional regulation, distress tolerance and impulse management skills on the inside that can reduce the reliance on unhealthy eating patterns on the outside, so that pain isn't so overwhelming. We can also explore body image, negative self-talk, self-criticism, shame, discomfort "being in your body", and help restore a sense of self-worth, self-compassion and resiliency.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

This area is close to my heart as it has touched my life personally and profoundly. I have journeyed with several friends and clients through their eating disorder, so the benefit for you is that I have a great deal of hands on experience and understand the complexity of it. There is so much buried deep below your eating disorder, then there are the messages you tell yourself and battle everyday, don't forget the shame and guilt you suffer through every time you binge, purge or tell someone about it, and what about the fear and anxiety (that's a tough one), I truly understand how complex and deep it runs. I can walk with you! There is hope!

Registered Social Worker, Counsellor, Aging Well Consultant

690 Belmont Ave W., Suite 101, Kitchener, Ontario

Does body image effect weight loss? Absolutely. People with poor body image often struggle more with emotional eating as well as the lack of confidence to choose a healthy lifestyle. Research indicates that improving body image can enhance a person's ability to adopt a healthy weight loss plan and be successful (Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity). Learning to accept and love our bodies and ourselves is an important and often a difficult ongoing struggle. Rather than trying primarily to be thin, women should work towards focusing their energy into developing healthier lifestyles as well as experimenting with what weight feels comfortable.
