Recovery Coaching & Counseling with Dr. Dorie

RECOVERY COACHING focuses on the development of healthy coping skills to replace eating disorders and addictions. Dr. Dorie guides clients in a solution-focused way to expedite recovery progress. You can receive coaching sessions no matter where you live (worldwide)!

RECOVERY COUNSELING delves into core issues which underlie eating disorders and addictions. These symptoms are alleviated when the root causes are addressed. Dr. Dorie is licensed in the State of Colorado, and you must reside in this state to receive counseling sessions.


Schedule your 30-minute consultation with Dr. Dorie. She will get to know you, and the issues you are dealing with. Together, you’ll explore the possibilities of working together on your recovery goals.

Dr. Dorie will ask you about any previous treatments you’ve had, and what worked (and didn’t work) about these. Next, Dr. Dorie will provide details about how Intuitive Therapy™ can be customized to meet your specific needs.

Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ is highly effective for Anorexia, Orthorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Food Addiction, and other issues with eating, exercise and weight.

Addiction Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ is designed to address all types of Substance Use Disorders, such as Alcohol/Drug Abuse, and other types of addictive behaviors.


Prior to this 1-hour appointment, Dr. Dorie will ask you to complete and return some paperwork so she can prepare to best help you (it take most people about 30-minutes to complete).

During the session, Dr. Dorie will ask you to tell your “story,” with a focus on the issues you are seeking help with. With more than 25 years of coaching and counseling experience, Dr. Dorie is highly skilled guiding you to uncover the “missing pieces” of your recovery puzzle.

From here, you and Dr. Dorie will clarify your recovery goals, and then she’ll give you an Action Plan to get started right away.

You must complete a CONSULTATION Session prior to scheduling this session type.

During these 1-hour appointments, you’ll make progress on your Action Plan for recovery. Dr. Dorie will check in with you about any homework assigned, and she’ll give you new assignments to enhance your progress between sessions.

When you first begin working with Dr. Dorie, she recommends having weekly sessions (and sometimes even more frequently), so that you can quickly change the eating disorder and addictive behaviors that cause you pain.

As you become pleased with your progress, the frequency of sessions can decrease, so that you can “strengthen your recovery muscles” by trying things on your own for longer durations.

Because Dr. Dorie has a solution-focused coaching style with a holistic healing counseling approach, most clients report significant progress in a short period of time, as compared to previous treatments they’ve tried.

SESSION FEE is $285/each or a PACKAGE OF 3 for $775
You must complete an INTAKE Session prior to scheduling this session type.

During these 3-hour appointments, you’ll focus on the discernment between the chatter of the eating disorder mind (or, addictive mind), and the healing wisdom of what Dr. Dorie calls the Intuitive Therapist within you.

Intuitive Therapy™ centers around your ability to access your own healing wisdom. You’ll hone your recovery skills to quickly notice (and not act on) the directives from the eating disorder or addictive mind. Instead, you’ll become curious about your emotions and authentic needs, which you can only satisfy without eating disorder or addictive behaviors.

In this way, you’ll shift from eating disorder (ED) to Intuitive Therapist (IT), or from Addiction (AD) to Intuitive Therapist (IT). Hence, the names of EDIT™ and ADIT™ which lead to lasting recovery.

Intensive Counseling sessions are also designed to facilitate safe and thorough exploration into underlying issues. This allows for “healing from within,” in a highly powerful and lasting way (which can sometimes take years in traditional therapy, if it happens at all).

SESSION FEE is $775 for 3 hours (with breaks as needed)
You must complete at least 3 ACTION Sessions prior to scheduling this session type.

Dr. Dorie guides clients to address body dysmorphia, weight stigma, and fat shaming. She also helps clients to address the cause of obesity, rather than dieting or using other means to "control the symptom of excess weight." In addition, for individuals who are considering bariatric surgery or who need post-surgery counseling, Dr. Dorie can provide assessments and therapy to address the mental and emotional aspects of obesity and adjustments to bariatric meal plans. Dr. Dorie can customize a treatment plan using her proven method of Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ for you to achieve Health at Every Size (HAES®).


Are you an alcoholic or addict? These terms may be used to describe a Substance Use Disorder, but they do NOT define who YOU really are! Underneath these labels, there are reasons WHY you drink and/or use drugs as a means of coping. However, there are healthier ways of dealing with past issues, present concerns, and future worries. You'll discover how substance use affects your body, mind, career, relationships, and all areas of your life. Then, Dr. Dorie will guide you to explore the treatment plan that's right for you – cutting back on your substance use, or working towards total abstinence. You can experience the freedom and success you desire and deserve!  


Dr. Dorie can address other mental and emotional issues, which often co-occur with eating disorders and alcohol/drug abuse. In many cases, the addictive behaviors are a means of "self-medicating," to reduce anxiety and/or depression. Appropriate prescription medications can often relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety and other psychiatric issues. Dr. Dorie partners with your current psychiatrist or medical doctor for the administration of prescription medications, and referrals for psychiatric or medical assessments can be provided as needed. As an alternative (or in addition) to medication, Dr. Dorie's sessions incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and other practices for relaxation and motivation.
