Becca Clegg, MS, LPC, CEDS-S
TRANSFORMATIVE TOUCH PRACTITIONER
CERTIFIED CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPIST
I am an author, consultant, and speaker. I have worked for over 15 years as a therapist and I am the Founder and Clinical Director of Authentic Living Counseling and Wellness, an Atlanta based psychotherapy practice.
Early in my career, I worked in clinical mental health settings and went on to create my private practice specializing in work with women recovering from disordered eating and negative body image issues. My work as a specialist in this field led me to recognize the mind/body connection, specifically how the body holds onto the emotional experiences and memories of my clients. I truly came to see the body as being the gateway to the subconscious mind.
So much of what my client’s simply could not access through traditional psychotherapy manifested in their body language, emotions, and physiology. As the book by the same name so famously states, the body truly does hold the score.
While I no longer offer traditional talk psychotherapy to new clients, I continue as the Clinical Director of Authentic Living Counseling and Wellness and provide teaching and support to the clinical staff of psychotherapists. I divide my time between Georgia and Maine, and I am licensed and have practices in both states.
Outside of the office, I have a strong desire to get resources to people who may not have access to counseling. As such, I have the pleasure of speaking to organizations and presenting nationally, educating families, clients and clinicians on eating disorders, nervous system regulation and mind/body approaches to healing. I am the author of Ending The Diet Mindset: Reclaim A Healthy and Balanced With Food and Body Image, a book designed to help people heal from our cultural obsession with body image and dieting (paperback and audio version available). I created the online course, Your Recovery Resource: A Program For Navigating Your Loved One’s Eating Disorder for the family and loved ones of those in recovery. And, I launched the Inner Alchemy Podcast, a series where I connect with all of my favorite healers and helpers in an effort to help people find the healing resources they need to reclaim balance in their own lives.
My hope is to share this journey with you, as together, we do our part to heal the collective whole.
