Eating Disorder Tools & Resources
Peer Support Group for Eating Disorders Ages 18+
Tuesdays at 9:00am EST
Every Tuesday at 9:00am EST I host a pay what you can, virtual peer support group with the not for profit organization Pay What You Can Peer Support. The group is titled "Eating Disorders Ages 18+" and is open to anyone struggling with an eating disorder, disordered eating, body image, or any other related topics. You DO NOT need any form of diagnosis to join this group.
Peer support is a wonderful and accessible way to connect with others struggling similarly to you, realize you are not alone, share and ask questions within a safe space and feel supported by others who understand.

Last year, I talked to Brock News about how being an active athlete changed how I viewed my own mental health and the conflicts that I endured during my early adult years. Below you can find the full article found on the Brock News Website:

Here is another article where I talk about the benefits of yoga and how the practice has impacted my life. I mention different types of yoga and embracing a beginners mindset to the practice.
“Abbey's generous wisdom and enthusiasm for helping others nurtures growth. I enjoyed the coursebook Abbey supplied and the practices in it, her energy, Yoga Nidra, and the walking meditation.”
-Ingrid Fedge, Colorado
“I had a really positive experience with Abbey’s program. I was able to gain some new perspectives on how to approach recovery, self-compassion, and how to connect with my whole self. I liked all of the practices and found something to take away from them all, but the art practice was my favorite. I have tried expressing myself through art before but something about that practice helped things click. I also liked the walking practice because I can take it to use out in the world.”
