Recovery is possible. Early intervention is crucial.

Your child can recover and your life can stabilize again.  An eating disorder doesn't have to rule your or your child's life long term. 

Eating disorders become chronic when treatment is delayed and/or misguided.

You don’t have to spend another day guessing if or how recovery works, what to do, or be held back from forging ahead with recovery while providers around you don’t specialize in eating disorders or have a waitlist.

We know that parents and caregivers can play a crucial role in eating disorder recovery. However, they often share that they don’t know where to begin, how to stabilize or keep going in the right direction. 

This doesn't have to be you.

Set yourself and your system up for success with a focused action and The Empowered Carer Program's step by step blueprint.

I put this roadmap together so that you have a clear, actionable plan and evidence based tools to tackle your child's eating disorder effectively.  From medical work up to managing your emotions, to knowing how to respond to your child, TECP is here to keep you focused on what works.

After all, during an active eating disorder individuals - especially teens and their actions - can become unrecognizable and disorienting for everyone involved. 

Eating behaviors can take over your child, pushing them into high levels of anxiety, resistance and anger, obstructing healing and recovery.

Regardless of the type of their eating disorder, the more malnourished their brain the more extreme behaviors come forward. 

It can be hard to decipher what is what, how to manage it and comprehend “why they do what they do”.

TECP is here to cut through that noise and help you to stay grounded and effective navigating your child's eating disorder.

The Empowered Carer Program

is here to help you build a solid foundation necessary in order to navigate eating disorder recovery effectively, head on.

Eating disorders can be vicious, even deadly, and they are impossible to fight without up to date knowledge and tools, supported by research as well as lived experiences of thousands and thousands of families.

TECP is here to help you maintain a strong footing and provide tools that will serve as YOUR ANCHOR throughout this journey.   

Let's get started!

I am Ilona Phillips 

I have spent the last couple of decades working with individuals and families struggling with eating disorders and related concerns.  I understand how stormy the recovery journey can be. I understand the ups and downs, overwhelm, pain and struggle that come with it. I have also had the privilege of seeing hundreds of individuals recover and find their way back to a deeply rich and satisfying life.

I know just how much the eating disorder recovery journey is impacted by various factors including length and severity of symptoms as well as lack of a clear plan in place.

You don't have to feel disoriented or lost. 

Yes, I know that finding effective treatment or strategies can often seem impossible. The number of specialized and effective providers, who truly understand eating disorders, is limited.  Many practitioners have a waitlist. Trust me, I know. This has always frustrated me for my clients. Now the need is higher than ever, and you don't have the luxury of testing and exploring  uncertain paths, seeing what sticks.

The good news?  You do not have to sit on the sidelines. 

Take charge, know what works. Go into recovery and your medical appointments well prepared, knowing what to look for, what questions to ask, how and what to advocate for on behalf of your child and how to measure progress. 

Dive in, learn how eating disorders work and how to support your child, not the eating disorder.
