Catherine and Francis are excited to speak with Kim Machado, a psychotherapist and trained trauma expert, about the complex intersection of eating disorders and trauma. Kim shares how the subjective experiences of trauma impact individuals in various ways, and that many use maladaptive behaviors to tell a story of their trauma. Her approach in working with those who experience trauma is empathetic, compassionate, and can be described by one of her favorite quotes from Alice in Wonderland, "when you can't look on the bright side I will sit with you in the dark." We are so appreciative of Kim's time, energy, and expertise. We hope you enjoy!
