ed behaviors?

the struggle is real
We provide a safe supportive environment for those in recovery from an Eating Disorder to have meal support and community with one another. You bring the food that matches your meal plan. Each meal is overseen by an LPC or Dietitian.
what we do
our gatherings

While supportive meals are our main offering, we also believe in forming a sense of community with one another. To do that, we also offer other services to engage one another outside of your comfort zone at times.

supportive meals

We are currently offering meal support Monday through Friday – breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

regular events

We host events routinely – from fun gatherings to educational/therapeutic – something for everybody!

special events

We feature special events such as community service trips and even family meal support evenings from time to time!

Everybody is welcome

When you struggle with an eating disorder, eating becomes hard. ThrivED Together is a safe place to do the hard work around eating. ThrivED Together is rooted in empathy, connection, courage, and support. We heal when we can be seen and heard. We heal with others.

Join us in a space where you can be you and become your favorite version of your authentic self.

you are likely a good fit if…
While we would love to have everyone that needs help join us at our table, we are just not a good fit for some people. We’ve created a few guidelines to consider about yourself before you sign up!

You are working on your recovery from an Eating Disorder but are struggling with the meal portion and need extra support.

You have made some progress in your recovery but are stuck around the food and eating aspects in your life.

You currently have a therapist and/or dietitian who feel you need consistent meal support, but not necessarily a higher level of care.

You want to practice eating with others and practice venturing out with food choices.

you are likely not a good fit if…
If you aren’t ready, don’t worry. We will be here when you are. If you aren’t sure, don’t worry, we will help assess whether or not you might benefit.

Your therapist, dietitian, or doctor are recommending a higher level of care at a treatment center.

You know you won’t be able to eat a meal even with support.

You cannot eat at least one “normal” meal per day. Normal meals will vary person to person.

You know without a doubt that you aren’t ready.

FILL THE GAP

While we offer a supportive meal environment, we aren’t intended to replace treatment or a level of care that requires hands on guidance. We believe there is a behavior struggle amongst those on the path to recovery from an Eating Disorder and we are here to fill that gap. We strive to normalize eating in social settings and build a community with one another that is safe and supportive. We are here to walk side by side for a time on your recovery journey.

We work with all Eating Disorder types, including:
• Anorexia Nervosa
• Binge-Eating/Purging Type
• Avoidant/Restrictive Intake Disorder
• Binge-Eating Disorder
• Bulimia Nervosa
• Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder
• Eating Disorder, Unspecified

Not just meal support – A real community!

Carol has worked in the field of Eating Disorders for over 30 years in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. She works with individuals struggling with eating disorders because she understands at a personal level the hope and healing that comes out of the process of recovery.

She created ThrivED Together after telling clients for years and years that she wished there was a place for them to go and just get supportive meals. After searching for the right location and space, she found it in Richardson and decided to create this space to get support at meal times but also build a community with one another to foster the journey to wholeness.
