Circle of HOPE

Welcome to Circle of HOPE ~ where Full Recovery is as close as your Computer!

Circle of HOPE is a one-of-a-kind virtual community for people struggling to overcome Binge Eating, Compulsive Overeating, Emotional Eating, and Chronic Yo-Yo Dieting.

The goal of this very special virtual community is to provide an emotionally safe, judgment-free zone where you have access to life-changing education that will transform your relationship with food, your body and your Self…allowing you to create Full Recovery from the inside-out.

Circle of HOPE is led by co-hosts, Dr. Julie & Dr. Ashley, internationally-recognized specialists in the field of emotional eating, binge eating, overeating, and related struggles (think anxiety, trauma, and challenging family systems).

With 44 years of combined experience effectively treating and resolving disordered eating, we have become the go-to experts.  We know your desire to overeat is not simply about food.

We’ll help you connect-the-dots so that you can understand how your relationship with emotions and with your Self has everything to do with your relationship with food.

Discover our Signature Approach, “The Deeper Work”

Dr. Julie & Dr. Ashley credit their professional success and international following to their unique approach that effectively helps you “connect-the-dots” between your oftentimes frustrating and CONFUSING eating behavior and the underlying “hidden pieces” that are frequently related to issues that are unconsciously being “managed” through your relationship with food.

This is what we call, “The Deeper Work.”

Through awareness, education, encouragement and healing, it IS possible to develop a healthy relationship with food!

Membership in Circle of HOPE includes ALL of the following:

    • LIVE access to International Emotional Eating Experts, Dr. Julie & Dr. Ashley, through their weekly 45-minute educational VideoCast, “The Deeper Work.”  Every week, the Doctors discuss topical themes relevant to emotional and binge eating FULL recovery. Members are invited to join in on the conversations if they would like (but this is, of course, never required)
