The Ample + Rooted Community: Eating Disorder Training

Community and education for body liberation practitioners

Grab our Free Guide on First Steps Towards Embodied Liberation

As a mental health professional, you want to provide your clients with the best possible care. You want to speak to their unique experiences, address their needs, and provide care that is fat-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ affirming, anti-oppressive, and anti-racist.

You want to keep learning and growing both personally and as a professional, but finding the right education that upholds all of these intersecting values is challenging. 

The majority of educational conferences and materials out there are based on outdated thinking centered on a cishet, thin, white normative experience, which may not apply to your clients (or you, for that matter!).

You’re tired of all the fatphobic messaging and overall oppressive standards of care. You need education that’s accessible and aligned with your values of social justice and equity.

You crave a community where you can connect with other like-minded professionals. (Because let’s face it, being fat positive in a fatphobic industry isn’t just frustrating—it can get lonely!)

You want to change your field, but you don’t want to do it alone.

And luckily, you don’t have to.


Introducing the Ample + RootED Community

The Ample + RootED Community is an engaging, supportive community of mental health professionals with the shared purpose of body liberation for all and who desire ongoing training, education, and connection. This is a space to deepen understanding and increase your skills in working with eating disorders and body shame.

Imagine a gathering of others in your industry who have moved past the fatphobic, diet culture based framework and instead, have adopted body liberation and are working to make this the norm in our field.
A place where social justice and equity is central to the conversation and the needs of marginalized communities are placed at the forefront. (Read our commitment to social justice here).

A warm and loving community where you can share experiences, learn from others, share resources (and referrals!), and deepen your own self-care practice and journey of personal growth to help build your own resiliency to continue to do this work.

As a member of the Ample + RootED Community, you will be part of a ripple effect for creating a more just and equitable world. No matter your level of experience, you are welcome and wanted here.

This group through Neathery's facilitation brings a sense of calm to my work that other supervision does not. The tenderness about the tough things in helping human beings through eating disorder recovery is supportive in a way that supports my rhythm as a clinician while remaining flexible and open to the experiences of the collective group. The word balance can be tough in this field and it feels like the right one here. Each session is unique and powerful.

Neathery has created a warm, inclusive, and welcoming space in the A + R community. It’s a place to find support and balance I find I need as a queer and neurodivergent clinician to feel renewed and rejuvenated in my work. Being in a community that fosters nurturance, support, and acceptance has been an integral part of my self-care. I feel not only seen and heard, but held. Neathery also brings a wealth of knowledge that is so generously shared and has informed my work as a therapist in a profound way. Highly recommended!

About your guide

Neathery Falchuk (they/she) aims to create a world where everyone can find and access affirming and inclusive therapeutic support. They value being authentic, playful, and fully collaborative with clients on their path of self-exploration and discovery.

As a queer, genderqueer, fat, Latinx therapist, Neathery saw the need for inclusive education from an intersectional and social justice-oriented framework in the therapy community, specifically around eating disorders and body liberation. They founded the Ample + RootED Community to fulfill that need through a community where mental health professionals can come together to receive the education and support necessary to fully support clients on their diverse journeys of growth, as well as to support the well-being of and the person within the therapist.

Neathery is a Certified Body Trust® Provider, in-training, and has served as a past President of Central Texas Eating Disorder Specialists, a past board member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health, and a past board member and DEI Committee Chair of Austin Group Psychotherapy Society. When they aren’t working with the Ample + RootED Community or collaborating with clients, Neathery loves yoga and meditation, social justice activism, movies, starting and never finishing books, hiking, and spending time with their wife, pups, family, and friends. 

"I see this community as a group of leaders in the body liberation movement, and my dearest wish is that this will allow us as a community to impact and reform our industry and our society as a whole.

I would love for you to join us!"

Welcome to the community you’ve been searching for!

Ample + RootED Foundations: Online Eating Disorder Training Program

Whether or not you seek to specialize in treating eating disorders, it’s likely you’ve had a client in your office struggling with food, exercise and/or body shame. Eating disorders are prevalent in our society and are a highly fatal mental health diagnosis, second to opioid use disorder. Astonishingly, comprehensive and accurate training and education are minimal.
