My name is Angie Viets. I'm a Clinical Psychotherapist who suffered and recovered from an eating disorder. In my private practice I've helped hundreds of patients recover. I'm working on a book proposal for my first book on eating disorder recovery. It will be from the point of view of my personal and professional experience and aims to give readers clinical tools and inspiration to heal.
Eating disorders effect up to 30 million people in the U.S. and have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric illness.
I'm extremely passionate about this project. Most eating disorder books are either very clinical, or memoirs that highlight the dark periods of the illness with little emphasis on what it truly takes to recover. I cannot wait to blend recovery stories (mine and my clients) with recovery resources/tools to help those suffering in silence to have hope and inspiration that recovery is possible!
