About Dr. Kylie

In 1980, I decided to pursue a career in clinical social work with a special focus on the treatment of eating disorders. This was inspired by my own recovery from Binge Eating Disorder.

Stop the Overeating Battle is a short-term therapy group for women who have binge eating disorder. I have led ninety-five of these groups since 1985. Ongoing psychotherapy groups are available for women who want a more intensive approach.

Teaching is an important part of my career. I enjoy speaking to community groups and professional conferences. Supervision, consultation, and training  are available for therapists, health care professionals, and educators. My expertise covers eating disorders, group psychotherapy, private practice development, and social work ethics.

I believe that my own progress in controlling my eating and improving my body image is valuable to the people I help. I am active in the Size Diversity & Health At Every Size movements.

My Education & Experience

In 1986, I earned a Masters in Social Work degree from Washington University’s Brown School and in 2005, a Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Social Work degree from the Institute for Clinical Social Work in Chicago. 

I pursued advanced training in family and group psychotherapy. I update my training and skills every year with advanced level continuing education courses.

My credentials include: Missouri and Illinois Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Group Psychotherapist, and a Charter Member of the Academy for Eating Disorders. 

My licensing and training provide a solid professional foundation for using scientific and therapeutic skills based on time-tested theory and modern research.

In-person and online sessions are available for adult residents of Missouri and Illinois.
