SHED's™ purpose consists of two aspects. The first is to educate people on the underlying issues which prevent the maintenance of a healthy weight due to under- or over-eating. We work with eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating), obesity, emotional eating and personal obstacles to a healthy lifestyle. Research shows there are physical and emotional dangers to being under- and overweight, so we want to guide people to balance in all areas of health, ultimately leading one to internal peace. We offer individual counseling and group therapy, utilizing formal education as well as personal experience. Rachel Quast, founder of SHED, has personally experienced anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating and exercise addiction. She uses her experiences to touch the hearts of those she works with. SHED is also dedicated to helping people identify non-useful patterns of all kind. We all have patterns of thought and behavior as we relate to ourselves and others. These patterns affect our work and school environment, church community and families. Through various presentations, groups, counseling and education tools, we help you expose the lies (from early hurts) that perpetuate these patterns so you can move forward to a more peaceful and happy life.
