Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Dr. J. Renae Norton, a clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders including Bulimia, Anorexia and Emotional Eating. She is the director of the Norton Center for Eating Disorders in Hyde Park, Ohio.

“There’s probably nothing more difficult to treat in psychology than an eating disorder. Your patients really don’t want treatment. If they’re anorexic or bulimarexic, they are terrified that they will gain weight. Likewise, and conversely, if they are obese, they desperately want to lose weight, but they don’t want to give up the foods that are causing the weight gain. In our country, so much of our food is polluted, which is the reason that we are one of the wealthiest, unhealthiest countries in the world.”
