One Sentence Treatment Philosophy

I firmly believe recovery is not a “one size fits all” approach and purpose to meet my clients where they are in recovery. I am passionate about walking alongside girls and women as they find freedom and “re-imagine” food and body image in light of God’s truth

Testimonials and Endorsements

“The letters behind Amy’s name do not adequately testify to her qualifications as a counselor and a dietitian. I firmly believe that Amy Carlson is the only reason I am here today. The Lord used her to unearth the lies that enslaved me to an eating disorder, and to share the truth that ultimately set me free—the truth found in the gospel of Jesus. Her approach to healing was holistic and dependent on the Spirit of God; it was a focus on the transformation of my heart, not the modification of my behavior. She has not wasted an ounce of her past time in the valley, but has, with empathy, zeal, and so much grace brought many clients to vision. The Church could use more RDs like Amy Carlson—not shocked by sin, not given to fear, free from shame, and full of love.”
