    Hello Megan,

    My colleague gave me a copy of your book. I am so very proud of you!!!!!!

    You did it!!

    I have left Philadelphia and opened my own practice on the waterfront in Plymouth, MA, Hope by the Sea. I have utilized your book often. You did a wonderful job. Your work inspires my clients, giving them greater insights,strength, and understanding.

    Thank-you,
    Pat Casinelli, LMHC

      Hi, Pat!
      Thank you so much for taking the time to read my book and to write to me! Congrats on your own practice! I think of you often…you were such an important part of my recovery…there with me at the very beginning of my journey! Now, as a counselor myself, I often wonder what “seeds” I’m planting in my clients–seeds that I may never see grow to fruition. It’s humbling to walk with them on a portion of their journeys. Thank you for walking with me on part of mine!
      Sincerely,
      Megan
      PS–I just realized I got your credentials wrong. I listed you as LCSW instead of LMHC. Sorry!

    I just ran across your NEDAW post and I’m so glad I’ve found your blog. As someone living with an eating disorder, I can really identify with what you write about, although the specifics of the disorders are different. BED, anorexia, bulimia–it really doesn’t matter. Thanks for speaking on behalf of all of us. 🙂

    You and I share so many similarities, right down to the identical academic pursuits (even though I’m still in graduate school to get my Masters in Counseling)…and I don’t care much for cats. But other than that, it seems fairly SPOT ON! 🙂
