Professional statement

Heather Allen, LPCC-S is a clinical counselor and therapist specializing in working with adolescents with eating disorders.

She is passionate about helping young adolescents and their parents leave the eating disorder in the past and build a life worth living. They love to see children and teens reach their fullest potential and achieve things that would not be possible with an eating disorder.

She is passionate about helping families reconnect, communicate and learn how to support their child with an eating disorder and get their life and their family back.

When she began her work with eating disorders, she knew she had found my place. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders because of the physical component and the detrimental effects of malnourishment on the body. They are dire and impact the entire family system. But with eating disorders, the answers are clear cut. We know how to treat them and we know that they can be eliminated - for good. Children and adolescents have a full chance to live a life free of an eating disorder - and Heather can help that to be your child.

Heather is inspired by the anti-diet movement and the shift that is happening with women on social media. There is finally awareness of the harm that the media has caused to women by constantly scrutinizing their bodies and we are finally making changes as a society to protect the next generation. Heather identifies as an Anti-Diet and Health At Every Size clinician.

She has experience working in multiple Eating Disorder Partial Hospitalization Programs with clients who require intensive eating disorder treatment. She has had extensive adolescent development and eating disorder training and has worked with over 100 families dealing with eating disorders.

Message to clients

If you are feeling lost, hopeless, frustrated, angry, confused and discouraged, you are not alone. If you feel like no one understands and nothing has helped, you are not alone.

Eating disorders in youth and teens have been on the rise since the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have seen an increased rate of hospitalizations and eating disorder program waitlists across the United States since 2020. I am here to help bridge the gap in care.

I know you have tried everything you could. You’ve done the research and reached out for help. You may have blamed yourself, asking ‘Why didn’t I see this sooner?’ ‘Why didn’t I notice they were losing weight?’, ‘Why is it still so hard, we’ve been going to therapy? Or ‘they’re eating more, why are things still so tense?’

Let me paint a scene:

You worked all day and came home to prepare dinner for your family. You chose your teenage daughter or son's favorite meal that they always loved. You set it down and BOOM! Let the match begin! Your child is screaming, crying, or has left the table altogether. They tell you they never liked this food, you are just trying to make them fat, how could you not understand??

If this sounds all too familiar and you want your child back and want peace at the dinner table and in your home again, you’ve come to the right place.
