Since she was young, Rachel says she’s battled with her body image, her relationship with food, and depression. She tried traditional outpatient therapy, but no one treated them simultaneously until she started Focus Depression Recovery at Rogers in Tampa.

“Rogers wanted to treat me as a whole person,” Rachel says. “They didn’t focus on one facet. They wanted to make sure I was good all the way around. It felt like I was seen for the first time.”

Rachel says her treatment team gave her the support and skills to rewrite the lifelong narrative in her head.

“I’m going to have to live with these tendencies for the rest of my life,” she says. “Rogers has given me the tools to recognize what’s happening and implement them before I get too deep.”
