About Us

A Gemmed Class

INTENSIVE, BUT NOT OVERWHELMING 

Gemmed classes are offered either once or twice a week (depending on your needs!) for a minimum of three months. Lots of support and community, but not an hospital-like environment 

Spirit

Class starts with an activity to develop creativity. We’ll take dance lessons, play with animals, paint, do yoga, practice improv and find new ways of self-care.

Body

During our shared meal we learn how to eat with others again with the support to redevelop normal eating patterns and relationships with food.

Mind

We end with group therapy to process the class and the daily challenges of self-esteem, body image, and anorexia, bulimia, binging, or generalized disordered eating.

How Is Gemmed Different?

Gemmed is here for you with a revolutionary, relevant and real kind of support for eating disorders and body image.

 

TRADITIONAL

 

TREATMENT

 

Once-a-week individual therapy often isn’t enough 

Support groups that are just talking, rather than healing together

Treatment centers that cost tens of thousands of dollars that insurance often won’t cover

Focusing only on your disorder and food, rather than your entire person 

Left at home to your own devices after hospital discharge

 

THE DIFFERENCE

 

WITH GEMMED

 

Mind, body, and spirit focus

More support than just individual therapy

Not as overwhelming as a full inpatient program

Creative activities that focus on you as a whole person, not just your disorder 

A catered, shared meal to help face your food anxieties together with friends and mentors 

Group therapy for processing and healing through therapist and peer support 

A therapist and coach that has gone through and recovered from ED – and knows what it’s like
