kristen brunello: eating disorder recovery coach

once a being, always a being


here is what I know for sure: being recovered from an eating disorder is totally possible.


"“I began working with Kristen at a turning point in my recovery, and through our time together have watched my life  expand in ways I did not know were possible. She knows what is like to be in the grip of disorder. She has lived it — and found a way through. Her skills as a coach, combined with the fact that she draws from an experience of coming through herself, has made so much possible for me.” – B.W. – Santa Fe



eating disorder recovery coaching

Imagine waking up in the morning, looking in the mirror, and accepting yourself just as you are.

Imagine going out to eat with your best friends and being present, genuine, and connecting.

Imagine answering the question "tell me about yourself?" with "I am grounded and intelligent. I am honest and a loyal friend. I love animals, the sun, going for a jog, and reading," and not "I have an eating disorder". 

Eating disorders steal our identities, passions, values, jobs, friends, happiness, and more.

Let me help you get them back.

While in recovery I often heard treatment providers say that full recovery from an eating disorder was not possible and that I would struggle with an eating disorder for the rest of my life. I am here to shatter that belief. From the hopelessness of feeling that I would never recover came my motivation to heal for the sake of giving others hope... to show that life can get better. My recovery journey started in 2008 and I have been recovered from my eating disorder since 2014. Now my days look very similar to those examples above. I believe that people intrinsically have the potential to thrive. I want to support you in accessing that potential and finding answers to questions like: What do I love to do? What do I care about? Who are my people? What do I stand for? Where do I start? Where am I going? 

I coach people who want to recover. Who know that their eating disorder is no longer gripping to them, but that they are gripping to it, and who are yearning to create an easier and happier life for themselves. 

What is possible when your dreams, goals, and passions take up the space in your life that used to be occupied by your eating disorder?

Imagine that you can change the saying "once an addict, always an addict" to "once a being, always a being".

Believe that you are not alone, and imagine that you can have a whole tribe of people seeking the same thing as you. 

Remember that recovery is possible.
