The Practice of 
Rachel Millner,
PSY.D, CEDS-S, CBTP®

Welcome!

Welcome! We're so glad you're here!

I am Rachel Millner (she/her) and am glad you are here to explore my website and the possibility of working together. I have been working with adolescents and adults seeking therapy for eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, orthorexia, disordered eating, and chronic dieting for over 10 years. All of my work is rooted in Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, Intuitive Eating, social justice, trauma-informed care, and fat positivity. I believe that whether you are dealing with an eating disorder, disordered eating, or trying to heal from many years of dieting, all of the ways you have struggled or tried to cope have been wise. You have always done the best you could to take care of yourself, and now you may be seeking therapy to learn different ways.

What can we accomplish together?

What can we accomplish together?

The value placed on thinness and "health" in our current cultural climate contributes to eating disorders and disordered eating and makes recovery harder. The dieting industry wants us all to believe that losing weight and keeping it off is possible, and that if we aren't successful it's our fault. They lied. Healing from these struggles allows for more space in your life to do the things that are important to you without the constant battle with food and with your body.   

Where ever you are in your personal journey with food and body, my team and I want to work together to explore these issues and talk about what you would like to be different in your life. While issues around food and body are often what bring clients to see me, most of my clients also want to talk about other things such as trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, etc. We are complex beings and everything in our lives impacts us. I want to get to know all of who you are and what you have gone through, at whatever pace feels comfortable for you.

How this works

While there are common themes, every one of my clients is unique. When we begin working together, we can decide what treatment approach is best for your particular situation. My ultimate goal is for you to create an authentic relationship with yourself that can allow you to feel freer in your relationship with food and your body and to feel more empowered in your life. It is not an easy journey, but it is a rewarding one. Our work together is collaborative and I trust that you are the expert on your own experience. My work is relational in nature, and I view the relationship between the therapist and client as one of the most important components in therapy.   
While there are common themes, every one of my clients is unique. I work with adolescents and adults, and often times treatment can look very different depending on the age range of the person I'm working with. My team and I have a lot of experience with Family Based Treatment and family therapy, and incorporate HAES and social justice into FBT. Community is very important to all of us, and adults also often benefit from including their support system in treatment in one way or another.

I know that, unfortunately, there is still a stigma attached to seeking therapy; just by coming here you, are among the bravest people I know. It is not easy to reach out for support, and I am honored when my clients invite me to come alongside them on their journey.  Our work together is collaborative and I trust that you are the expert on your own experience.

    Health at Every Size

    Health At Every Size® or HAES® promotes the simple truth that all bodies are good bodies. HAES shifts the focus away from dieting for weight control and toward quality of life and self care practices that support your body’s natural wisdom and vitality.

    Body Trust

    Body trust is a paradigm of care that empowers you to attune to and respond to your body's needs. It allows you to make peace with your body in a flexible, compassionate, and connected way.

    Intuitive Eating

    Intuitive Eating is a self-care eating approach that helps you break free from the diet mentality and instead eat according to your body's wants, needs, and preferences. Intuitive Eating is a weight-inclusive, evidence-based model that will allow you to build a healthy relationship with food.

    The culture we live in impacts all of us and the value placed on thinness and "health" in our current cultural climate contributes to eating disorders and disordered eating and makes recovery harder. The dieting (or as Deb Burgard, Ph.D., calls it the weight cycling) industry wants us all to believe that losing weight and keeping it off is possible and that if we aren't successful it's our fault. We have been told lies for a long time. Eating disorders, disordered eating, and dieting, take up our time and energy and impact all areas of our lives. Healing from these struggles allows for more space in your life to do the things that are important to you without the constant battle with food and with your body.

    Many clients who come to see me have been struggling for years with an eating disorder and many aren't sure if they have an eating disorder, but know their relationship with food and their body is not what they want it to be. Where ever you are in your personal journey, we can work together to explore these issues and talk about what you would like to be different in your life. While issues around food and body are often what bring clients to see me, most of my clients also want to talk about other things such as trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, etc. We are complex beings and everything in our lives impacts us. In therapy, we talk about all of these things at the pace you decide. I want to get to know all of who you are and what you have gone through at whatever pace feels comfortable for you.
    As we work together, I will support you in moving towards a more peaceful relationship with yourself. We can work together to identify what your true values are and what things are most important in your life. Having a more authentic relationship with yourself can allow you to feel freer in your relationship with food and your body and to feel more empowered in your life. It may feel impossible to imagine what life could look like without a constant battle with food and body and without feeling that your past is holding you back, and our work together is partly about recognizing that it is possible. It is not an easy journey, but it is a rewarding one.

    Body Trust

    Hilary and Dana joined forces to re-envision what it meant to occupy and care for your body—and the Center for Body Trust was born. Today, we work to examine the toxic structure in which our construct of health lies, and discover what is possible when people are trusted with their bodies.

    Intuitive Eating

    Intuitive Eating is a self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought and was created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. Intuitive Eating is a weight-inclusive, evidence-based model with a validated assessment scale and over 100 studies to date.
