About Me

Hi friends,

Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Carly Newberg and I’m a 24-year-old Author, Speaker, and Eating Disorder Recovery Coach living in Portland, Oregon. In 2019, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Health and Fitness and now, I’m working toward a Masters of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling from George Fox University.

I currently work with adolescents in a residential treatment facility for eating disorders, and I hope to continue working with those battling and recovering from eating disorders once I complete my program. Working as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor will give me more leverage to—in a bigger way—help these warriors heal from past trauma and believe in their inherent worth through healthy self talk and narrative shifting.

I recently published my debut book, Good Enough: Believing Beautiful through Trauma, through Life, through Disorder. In it, I share my story through messages of faith, forgiveness, and trusting in the unknown. I believe eating disorders are multidimensional puzzles with no one cause and to move past them, we must trek through our past with open arms and compassion.

Similar to writing and publishing my book, I started this platform to help others find their version of “good enough.” On my website, you will hear me talk about my struggles with anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and exercise addiction. I discuss what caused my eating disorder behaviors to onset, all that helped me during my recovery, and the things I still struggle with on a daily basis. I also bring in wisdom from other recovered individuals occasionally because one thing is for certain and that is: there is strength in numbers.

On both my website and Instagram, I welcome a shame-free, guilt-free environment and I’m a big advocate of yoga, intuitive eating, body neutrality, and self-acceptance. I love connecting with others not only through technology, but at the workshops and events I often lead and host.

Long story short, I believe in beauty for ourselves, for others, and for our world. It’s God’s grace and compassion that continue to soften my heart and remind me how important each of these things are. Over the last three years, I’ve begun to find a true sense of freedom and healing through both vulnerability and shared experiences with others. I would ask you to please take this as an invitation to join me along the rest of my journey so that together, we can learn what it means to take up space in this world and feel comfortable while doing it.

A few of the things to make me happy are dark chocolate, Ben Howard, and ocean waves. I look forward to getting to know you soon too!

All my blessings and love,

Carly
