I'm Laurelee Roark, Body Image Therapist, Author and Educator, and I'm so happy you're here!
Since 1985, I have had the privilege of helping countless men and women of all ages and backgrounds heal from body hatred and disordered eating through my therapy practice, books, support groups, podcasts, blog and non-profit organization, Beyond Hunger.
If you're looking to reclaim your personal power, heal and break free from body hatred, I invite you to contact me to schedule a free consultation. The time for true healing and self love is Now!
"In a society that profits from self doubt, liking yourself is an act of rebellion."

HOLISTIC BODY IMAGE THERAPY
Through my therapy practice, I provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients to heal, grow and rediscover their personal power.
I take a holistic approach to address body image disturbances and disordered eating, incorporating an array of therapeutic techniques including hypnotherapy, plant-based journeys, coaching, mindfulness, and reparenting (i.e. healing the inner child). Through our recovery work together, I will guide and support you as you develop coping skills, learn intuitive eating, enhance emotional intelligence, and address and heal from past traumas. My goal is to help you step into your power, and to support you as you learn to love the body you have.
