Dr. Bray's Story

In a 2-hour podcast debut, Brenna Bray, PhD, shares her experience of navigating bulimia nervosa in a Western Medical system, the stigmatization, invalidation, and lack of empowerment she perceived, and the way unconditional love ultimately enabled her journey of transformation, growth, and healing through validation, self-efficacy, self-empowerment, compassion, and self-love.
“It opened up this shift from thinking about what other people thought about me to [thinking about] what I thought about me and how I felt about me. …and for me, that’s a really powerful space to be in. That’s where the change can happen. Because ultimately, it doesn’t matter what other people think about me. The only thing that really matters is what I think about me because that’s the only thing I have the power to change. …So when I got there, then everything just started clicking in so fast,” Dr. Bray shares.
Dr. Bray also shares how her vocation and avocation in binge eating disorder coaching and research “chose her,” and how she views her career as an opportunity to serve the populations she feels called to represent.
