Without Annie’s guidance, knowledge, experience and encouragement, I would not be ” in recovery ” from anorexia today. For the past year she has guided me from near death to good health, always encouraging me to pursue levels of treatment deemed necessary to begin the journey to recovery. Because of her knowledge of the structure needed for the process to begin, she referred me to a residential treatment program which focused on supervised weight gain, education about anorexia, and coping mechanisms for uncomfortable situations. Since completion of the program. Annie has continued to guide me weekly in nutritional needs, to support me emotionally, and to hold me accountable for progress toward my goal.
Annie has my highest recommendation–she is the best!!! -Female client, 78 years old
When I first met with Annie Goldsmith, all I kept thinking was, “why didn’t I meet her sooner?”
After battling with an eating disorder since high school, this was the first time in my life that a licensed professional made sense to me in regard to how we should eat. Her “Intuitive Eating” approach is smart, simple and truly the only way to be free from the unhealthy diet mentality that many people suffer from. She also has a wonderful personality and is truly a pleasure to work with. If you want to finally ditch your detrimental relationship with food, I highly suggest working with Annie. -Female client, 44 years old
Annie helped our family through a time of crisis when we did not know what we needed.
Annie was professional and resourceful when my family first met her. She helped to build steps and a team to support my daughter through recovery from an eating disorder.
Annie has been supportive, encouraging, flexible and positive during the counseling sessions and the recovery period. We are indebted to her for her guidance. -Mom of a teen client
“As an educated and professional African American woman, I thought that I was well-informed about health, nutrition, and the biases against body types that I considered healthy. Working with [Annie] has opened my eyes and my heart to greater acceptance of HAES for my 6’1” frame and of others that I made negative assumptions about that masked a form of self-judgement. Thank you for helping me to happily accept the genetic and complex socio-economic factors that make each of us uniquely who we are, and to change the things that I can, because I can and want to for my personal health and body. Never another diet again in my life!” -Female Client, 57 years old
