We are a community committed to reaching the summit of eating recovery

We believe thriving in eating recovery is possible and is most likely to be achieved within a community that provides ongoing education, accountability and encouragement. 

Regardless of where we are on our path, we are committed to reaching the summit of recovery. Though the climb can be challenging, we are strengthened as we climb together.



We must be resilient and diligent in every stage of our climb 

We recognize that eating recovery includes Steep Climbs, Hills & Valleys, and Grand Vistas. We are committed to addressing the unique challenges inherent to every stage of eating recovery. 

Through it all, we keep our eyes on the summit and our feet on the trail. 


Summit is guided by eating recovery experts

Dr. Melissa Smith & Dr. Anna Packard are Psychologists and Certified Eating Disorder Specialists. Through our education, expertise and experience helping thousands of women, we know what's required to achieve recovery and to thrive in life. 

Summit grew out of our experience working extensively at all levels of eating disorder treatment. We recognize that despite receiving expert care, most women need ongoing education, accountability and community to sustain progress.

We are passionate about this work and we believe Summit meets an important need for thriving in recovery.
