I can honestly say that I FINALLY feel like I've gained control of my eating habits and am no longer a victim of Binge Eating Disorder! Being labeled the "fat kid" since childhood, I have had a roller-coaster relationship with food ever since, loosing and regaining hundreds of pounds. At 60 yrs old, my weight is no longer the shameful center of my life and I'm eating sensibly, without restricting, which used set me up for bingeing in the past. I feel like I've finally made peace with myself, my body, and my relationship with food. Thank you Sharon Peterson!

The tween years have been brutal to our daughter. She's struggled with being bullied at school, low grades, and temper control issues. She instantly bonded with Sharon and we are happy to see our delightful daughter coming back. We still have a long way to go but I am confident that she will continue to gain control of her mood swings.

Our family is grateful! My college-aged son was not properly diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum until Sharon Peterson began working with him. He went all the way through school without getting the help he needed and deserved until we found Psychotherapy Services of Atlanta. Now, he's working hard to catch up socially but we all see tremendous progress in him already.
