Support Group Closure

In 2020, as the world was shutting down for the pandemic, Robert & I identified a need in our community to allow access to eating disorder support groups in the Columbus area in a safe, virtual environment.

We took that need and reopened BIBRI.

Fast forward to 2024, and access to virtual groups has become much easier. With that in mind, we have made the very difficult decision to close the BIBRI Groups until further notice. Right now, Robert and I are trying to find a balance between our family, our work, our volunteer efforts, and our rest time.

BIBRI will always have a very special place in our hearts, and we may decide to reopen in the future. For now, we need to step back and catch some breaths while we see what our next steps will be. Please see the links below for virtual support group resources and remember to stay strong in your recovery.

It has been our honor and joy to walk this journey with so many individuals. To those who have referred individuals to our group, thank you for entrusting us to be a guide to them. To those who have joined us over the years, a special THANK YOU for being open to vulnerability and recovery. I have learned much from you over these last 4 years. I hope that each of you remember that you are never alone on your recovery journey and that recovery IS possible.

Assisting those who struggle with body image and eating disorders has been a passion of mine since 1994 when I began volunteering as a support group leader for an online website, and subsequently became a public speaker on eating disorders and trauma, including presenting at The Renfrew Conference.
