 “Hi, I’m Catherine Tilford. My passion is helping people heal their relationships with food, exercise, and their bodies which is why I founded Embrace Strength Counseling & Nutrition. As a therapist and Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, 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. I’m a Colorado native who loves the outdoors, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family.”

Founder & Director, Embrace Strength Counseling & Nutrition

Hello. My name is Lisa Mareb and 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!”

Contract Therapist, Embrace Strength Counseling & Nutrition

Hi! I’m Emily Forzley – a Registered Dietitian specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. 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’.”
