I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me! You have taught me so much about myself and given the confidence I need to live a full and happy life. As difficult as this process was, I cannot imagine going though it anywhere else. Walker Wellness became my second home early in treatment – thank you for providing me with people I trusted and a place I felt safe. I cannot say thank you without mentioning the tickets to Phantom of the Opera, and the Starbucks cards and the Channel make up. It was a true blessing finding you all at Walker Wellness Clinic. I can honestly say I never thought the end would come when I first began talking to Philip about starting the program. Now I am glad to be moving to the next stage in my life, though I would NOT be doing so if not for your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I miss you and Walker so much. You have no idea how many times I wish I was seeing you for therapy and seeing the girls in group. Please send my love to all the girls and to the rest of the team. Please give the girls this message for me. It is possible to recover. Yes, it is painful, difficult, and scary. It may take a long time and it may seem like you take two steps forward and one step back- but every day in treatment is one day closer to recovery. Love yourself as much as you can. There is so much light and beauty in recovery. I want you to know that there is hope, that I love you, and that you are BEAUTIFUL. Yes, you are BEAUTIFUL. I hope all is well with everyone at Walker. Even if I hated the process of getting better, I could have never recovered without you! Walker is the best Eating Disorder Treatment Center around, because you love and respect the girls and guys who come to you for help. You treat us as human beings and persons, not just patient. Thanks so much again

As I wrap up this stressful first day back to work, I wanted all of you to know how much I thought of you today. Without knowing that I had the most amazing eating disorder treatment team rooting for me all the way (special thanks to Susan and Elise for emailing today to wish me luck! – brought me so much joy!) I wouldn’t have been able to hold my head up high. And in addition, I went to my second Vegan “Comfort Food” cooking class this evening. Would you ever believe that I would ever be able to face a plate of vegan meatloaf, mac n’ cheese, stroganoff, mashed potatoes and gravy, potato pancakes with dressing and dinner rolls without ANY guilt, without ANY restriction, completely eating NORMAL portions, without any binging, and with confidence that not only can I DO it again but that I WANT to do it again!!!! This is just a sample of how you all have changed my life. I can’t thank you enough and look forward to continue to work with you all and continue making progress. I know I can do this now and would’ve never made that discovery without each one of you!!

I was at Walker Wellness for about two and half months and they were the most life changing months of my life. I discovered so much about myself and learned a lot about beating my eating disorder. Everyone I worked with at Walker Wellness was so encouraging and I faced many challenges along the way, but I always had support. My treatment was completely individualized to fit my personal needs. There are not enough words to thank Walker Wellness for everything they have done for me. They helped me rediscover myself, and I’m finally me again! I’m back to living my life, not just surviving and fighting to get through each day.

This caring group of professionals became like a family to our daughter during her Intensive Outpatient Program. Elise went above and beyond to work with our daughter’s college meal service to meet her dietary needs. This allowed our daughter to get the treatment she needed for her eating disorder while she remained enrolled in college and she was able to stay on the Dean’s list. Our family counseling session at the conclusion of treatment reassured us that our daughter was discharged with the support she needed for the future. Our daughter developed the skills she needed to cope with her depression and eating disorder. We are confident she has the tools she needs to deal with her illness. The Walker Wellness Clinic was a blessing to our entire family.

Walker Wellness changed my life. When I started the intensive outpatient program, I never thought I would recover from my eating disorder. But thanks to the therapists and the IOP, I am a new person. Each of my therapists showered me with support and love, which enabled me to see myself apart from my eating disorder. I had great comfort in my treatment team because of their knowledge and experience; I knew they wanted me the best for me. The intensity of the IOP made me work through my struggles on a daily basis. While it wasn’t easy, the support given at Walker Wellness gave me the strength to fight and the desire to live.

.

The care we received at Walker Wellness was a beautiful fit for our daughter. I appreciate all the time they spent listening to our concerns and giving our daughter a voice in her treatment. The challenges she faced were handled in a safe and nurturing environment. I highly recommend Walker Wellness to anyone seeking very individualized treatment. Our daughter’s treatment team was a perfect group of professionals that encouraged and taught her so much about accomplishing goals and developing effective coping strategies, which ultimately lead her success in her recovery of anorexia. We will never forget the people at Walker Wellness, and how they changed all our lives and given our daughter hope for the future.

The Walker Wellness Clinic has designed an amazing program. I will always be grateful for being challenged in a loving supportive environment. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, I honestly thought I would never overcome my eating disorder, but Walker gave my life back.

.

I just wanted to thank you so much for this opportunity. I honestly never thought I’d be able to say that Walker Wellness has changed my life, but it has. I feel like an incredibly different person and for someone who has been completely emotionless for all the previous years with an eating disorder, I can actually cry thinking about how far I’ve come. When I talked with Philip on the phone before I came to Walker Wellness, I knew that I had found my match. Every other treatment center I called scared me and I could find a 100 reasons why I shouldn’t go. But your approach at Walker is so different and unique, and for once in my life of my eating disorder I saw hope and the possibility for someone to work with me. I had always felt so different and like no one understood me or where I was coming from, so isolation was perfect, but you and your treatment team have proven me wrong and made me realize all the possibilities out there for me. So all in all, thank you with all my heart and I just wanted to let you know what a special gift you and the rest of the Walker Wellness team have and especially, how many lives you have impacted.Intensive Outpatient Participant – 2009

The patient care at Walker Wellness was wonderful, I truly felt cared for and I know everyone wanted me to succeed, which I did. I thank you so much for everything, I will miss you all so much.
