JEANINE K. OLSEN, CWC

I am Jeanine Olsen, a certified wellness counselor/coach with specialization in eating disorder recovery. After struggling for decades with anorexia and bulimia, I have taken my own lived experiences and have applied them to helping others find their path to recovery and reach their goals. 

I have been a Certified Wellness Coach since 2016. I have completed continuing education in the following areas:

  • Eating Disorder Recovery, with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skills

  • Therapeutic Art Life Coaching

  • Mindfulness practices

  • General Nutrition

  • Fitness for Disease Prevention

  • Nutrition for Chronic Disease

  • Emotional and Compulsive Eating

  • Implementing changes to diet-related behaviors

I have been a passionate team member of Eating Disorder Support Network (EDSN) since 2016. At EDSN, I have dedicated my work to empowering clients by seeking out who they truly are as individuals, assisting them in connecting with their true identities through skill building, goal setting and follow-through, accountability in their recovery journeys, providing meal support, facilitating recovery groups, and strengthening key coping strategies that may or may not have yet been established. Coping strategies I focus on might include basic living skills, such as grocery shopping, job searching, connecting to community support, and so on. I provide meal support through supervised lunch groups, day-to-day individual coaching, weekly eating disorder recovery support groups, and the monthly art group called, Let’s CrEATe! I also act as a liaison with treatment teams, bridging gaps in communication and fulfilling an often missing link in treatment.
