Catherine Tilford, MA, NCC, LPC, CEDS Founder & Director
“My passion is helping people heal their relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies. As a recovered professional, I strive to support others in finding their own recovery so they can live full, meaningful lives connecting to what is important to them. I also really enjoy working with anxiety, fertility and postpartum concerns, and perfectionism/self-worth. My therapeutic approach is strengths based and inclusive. I am the Immediate Past President of the Denver Metro Chapter of iaedp and currently serve on the iaedp Board of Directors. Outside of the office, I love spending time in the outdoors, reading, cooking, and hanging out with my husband, two incredible daughters, and goldendoodle Willow.”
“I’m committed to helping you build a more fulfilling and passionate relationship with your mind, body, food, and spirit. As a therapist and Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, I believe that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible and worth it- and I am proof. As a teenager, I suffered from anxiety and bought into the myth that I needed to be thin in order to have value. I developed an eating disorder that, with the help of a therapist, my community and my yoga practice, I was able to overcome and I can proudly declare myself recovered for over 20 years. In my free time, I enjoy cooking for friends and family, yoga, walking my dog Potatoes, and most of all riding my motorcycle on the beautiful roads Colorado has to offer!”
“Eating disorders are not just about the food – they are much more complex than that – but food is an important part of the equation when it comes to recovery. As a dietitian, I help clients navigate the intimidating world of food and nutrition without judgement and with a lot of compassion. Outside of being a dietitian, I am a full-time dog mom to my pup Libby. I’m also an avid skier and self-proclaimed chef (really, a foodie). I strive to live by example to show that food is meant to be enjoyed, and does not need to be feared. My approach to nutrition counseling is non-diet, weight inclusive, and with a strong belief that ‘all foods fit’.”

We live in a culture of scarcity or "never enough" and women's bodies rarely (arguably never) escape unscathed. According to research by Brené Brown, PhD, nearly all women feel ashamed of their bodies at one time or another. For many women, our relationship with our...
“Does it matter if you gain weight?” I mumbled under my breath in between bites of my breakfast sandwich last Sunday. I was at a restaurant having brunch with six women to celebrate a dear friend. Minutes earlier, the conversation had turned a corner to an...
