Hi, My name is Kimberly and I’m a Recovery Coach with Binge Code.
My passion for recovery coaching began in 2018. I was a practicing physician in Pediatrics for 17 years and was noticing a gap in the community resources for young girls struggling with their body image, weight struggles, obesity and eating disorders. As I researched avenues to help young girls, I discovered Binge Code Coaching and quickly realized that ED recovery coaching was my new love.
The Binge Code coaching approach inspired me instantly. It’s fundamentals focusing on proper nutrition and fueling, and all the stepping stones that build upon that create a successful approach to lifelong recovery.
My own recovery was devoid of most of the fundamental nutrition education which led me to struggle with food long after I recovered from Bulimia.
I struggled as a teen athlete and young adult with food, fueling for competitions, daily nutrition and body image. Initially it was a dislike of my athletic build which developed into a cycle of dieting and excessive exercise in my late teens and eventually bulimia in my early 20’s. By my mid 20’s I was recovered from bulimia yet was still tormented by what and when to eat, restricting some foods due to fat fear, and under-fueling when I exercised.
Through study and experience during my Medical School and Residency Training as well as Athletic Coaches advising me, I developed a healthy relationship with food and nutrition, fueling for competitions and a complete freedom from Body Image Issues. I have experienced such freedom, joy, and balance throughout my 30’s and 40’s as a result.
During my career as a Recovery Coach, I have led many adults and teens to freedom through the recovery process. My approach focuses on improving people’s relationship with food, giving them education about nutrition, walking them through their triggers, and helping them rewire their habits and ED patterns. The result is a life free of food obsession and bondage.
If you are ready to begin a new life in Freedom, I would love to walk beside you to recovery. Helping my clients find joy, peace and self confidence brings me such fulfillment. I want everyone suffering to be able to experience the difference a Binge Free, Bulimia Free life can bring.
I am now coming up to 33 and I feel like I’ve got a brand new chance at life!
Kimberly has been coaching me since September 2019 and because of her I am coming up to one year of true recovery.
For the first time in my life I see a way out of the hell that was my 12 year eating disorder and I am so grateful to her for that.
Before finding Kimberly I had experienced many attempts at recovery either on my own, or going down the more traditional route of psychologists and CBT but nothing ever worked or if it did it never stuck. This time around I actually feel the closest I’ve ever felt to full recovery and total freedom from eating disorders.
I had struggled with bulimia from my teenage years into my late twenties and then again after a relapse in my early thirties. I am now coming up to 33 and I feel like I’ve got a brand new chance at life. Considering how deeply unhappy, out of control and anxious I felt about my body, food and my self confidence only one year ago compared to now, it’s as if I’m a different person.
My life has changed for the better, I have so much more energy, I can think clearer, I’m able to participate in family events and occasions without any anxiety, I have a newfound respect and love for myself and my body which I never had before. I no longer think about food, calories, weight or numbers. I’m a truly happier, calmer and a better wife & mother as a result of my recovery. Thank you Kimberly, for making me believe in myself again and for leading me down the path of total freedom! :)”. – Anna Saccone Joly
Helped me turn a potentially damaging situation into a great learning!
I was worried and scared.
I was caught in the balance of bringing up my daughters health to her, and potentially risking giving her an eating disorder, or saying nothing and watching in fear as her health continued in a bad direction.
I was frozen with fear of what to do. I knew the right way to eat, but my girls heard nothing but “blah, blah, blah” from me as I tried to help them.
I knew I needed someone to help me with the entire issue and focus more on her teenage health and not just eating . After reaching out to Dr. Kimberly the first time, I was hopeful I had found what we needed to walk these delicate waters.
Being a pediatrician, she was able to help us understand how her genetics played into how important her health decisions were at a young age.
She is real, understanding, and so helpful trying to meet the child where they are. I am happy to say that my 15 year old daughter is doing really well after several sessions with Dr. Kimberly.
She looks healthier, her weight is healthier but, more importantly, she is feeling better.
She says she is “less tired”. She even notices if she hasn’t eaten well over the weekend and she wants to get back on track with her eating. I feel like she is so much more aware of her food choices. I truly feel that Dr. Kimberly helped me turn a potentially damaging situation into a great learning and growing experience for my daughter. Progress over Perfection” ( a thankful mom)
Recovery after 12 years of bulimia
After about 6 months of working with Kimberly, I am since into my 8th month of what I would consider true recovery.
I have been bulimic for 12 years, and these have been my best 8 months.
I would very much say I am progressing really well through this journey and have never felt as confident and as balanced as I do right now.
Kimberly was very specific and targeted the exact areas that needed targeting, she removed the heavy weight of guilt and shame and laid out a step by step path to follow which has gotten me to where I am now in a place where I feel more balanced than ever before. I couldn’t be more grateful to Kimberly for truly changing my life. Thank you. – JG
Empathy and support with a push to do what you need to do to get it done
Kimberly has equipped me with the gift to simply divide and conquer roadblocks in my life, from an eating disorder to how I look at overwhelming situations.
She is able to have empathy and support with a push to do what you need to do to get it done. So ever grateful for each time with Kimberly. KM
