Body, Beauty, and Bravery Summer Camp Recap
This Summer was our 5th annual camp series at East Cobb Presbyterian Church. Thank you to those at ECPC
who continue to support our fantastic camp experience. We had a great time welcoming those from our
community and beyond. Connecting with the campers is always the highlight, and seeing them learn to love the
skin they're in is beyond rewarding. Planting healthy life skills in their sweet hearts wasn't all me though-let me
take a moment to highlight some of my counselors...
Amber Corbi: An up and coming Licensed Professional Counselor, Amber serves outpatients at
Manna Treatment Center. She's also the Marketing Director at Focus Treatment Center, located
in Chattanooga TN. Personally assisting Dr. Anita Johnston, author of 'Eating in the Light of the
Moon' on her frequent trips to Atlanta, Amber will be using her skills and inspiration from this book
to lead a GROUP for those interested in learning to love their bodies. Contact the Atlanta
Counseling Center at 770.396.0232, ext. 235 for details.
Whitney Nevins: I was so lucky to get this woman! She kept me waiting for years, and it finally
was the right time for her to participate, despite getting engaged the night before camp started!
Whitney served for many years at Ridgeview Institute as a Clinical Assistant. Now she's applying
her talents to outpatient counseling and currently sees patients on a sliding scale in East Cobb,
Buckhead, and Smyrna. Contact 404.907.3592 to schedule an appointment.
Katie Rider: Look out for this one! She's sooo smart and on her way to make a huge and
positive impact on anyone that she chooses to help. I was really blown away at her ability to
connect with the girls. She had innovative ideas that made my camp better, and truly sought to
serve God (and help me!) throughout the entire process. I can only hope she'll spare some time
for me in the future to help out at more workshops!
Stacey Wald: This Registered Dietician and Associate Licensed Counselor participated in our
Authentic Health day. She took charge of one of my favorite subjects, FOOD! Identifying and
practicing the principles of mindful and intuitive eating are great skills to pass on to girls, to
hopefully prevent future dieting. Feeling connected to your body also contributes to a GREAT
body image! Stacey continues her work at a GROUP that she's offering to adult women on
Wednesday nights from 6-7pm, starting Sept. 11th. If you've never been to a body
image/self-esteem group, you're missing out. Every woman needs to have more of this in her life!
Contact Stacey at 404.358.3293 for more details.

|Three things I can do right now to
improve my body image are:
|1. Stop comparing myself to others. When I
compare myself, I usually see what's wrong and
what I don't have. I lose sight of the beauty that I
bring to the world, inside and out.
2. Stop letting the media define what's
beautiful. Unethical and irresponsible
advertising is all photoshopped and fake
anyway. They want my money and don't care
how I feel about myself.
3. Start speaking up for myself! I will no
longer be bullied by other people's limited ideas
of what beauty is. I am beautiful, regardless of
my waist size, skin color, and whatever else I
think may be "wrong."
