“There are few people in this world in whose efficacy I have greater confidence. I came to Reba with a 15 year history of disordered eating. Reba was the perfect blend of skill, insight, tact, responsiveness, kindness, and strength. There’s a solidity and strength about her. Her presence is calming, reassuring, and stabilizing. I know no other like her, and I cannot imagine what we will all do on the day she retires. While I’m incredibly grateful that my disordered eating years are now behind me, I do miss my times in Reba’s office. She’s earned my highest praise.”

– Christi S.


“Thank you seems so inadequate to express how grateful we are to Reba Sloan for our daughter Emily’s recovery. We’ve never felt so inadequate in how to help our daughter. Reba took the weight of the world off of our shoulders. Eating disorders are incredibly complex and confusing. We made so many mistakes going to the wrong doctors for help. We can’t say enough positive things about the compassionate, thorough care Emily is receiving. We are blessed to have our girl back, laughing and enjoying life again. There is hope and healing available. Thank you Reba and your entire team.”

– Steve and Lyn Carr


“I learned the basics of healthy eating from Reba when I didn’t feel I had good control over or balance in my food consumption. Years later, when I turned 60, I started gaining weight in spite of healthy habits, small portions, and an active lifestyle. Reba coached me through the problem and deduced that “it’s not your food.” She was right. She had the wisdom to refer me to an endocrinologist. Now that the genetic endocrine problems (thyroid and insulin) have been diagnosed and are being treated, I’m returning to my normal weight and am still using the basics of healthy eating I learned from Reba. Those healthy eating habits are the building blocks of my vigorous good health.”
– Anne


“Reba Sloan is truly amazing at what she does. I believe that her knowledge about eating disorders and disordered eating saved me from some serious health problems and set me on the road to recovery. From the first day we started working together, I didn’t feel alone anymore. Not a day goes by that I don’t reference something that she taught me in our time together. I now have a healthy relationship with my body and food, and I have her to thank. As a volunteer for the Eating Disorders Coalition of Tennessee (EDCT), I have also had the pleasure of working with her as a leader; she always shows confidence and is an inspiration to those around her.”
– Lacey Chemsak


“Reba Sloan has, at the risk of sounding too dramatic, saved my life. Her vast nutritional and counseling expertise and experience; her warm, insightful, compassionate approach; and her help in connecting me with other members of an excellent treatment team have been invaluable in my recovery from anorexia.

– Alyson


“Reba Sloan is simply the best in her field. I can honestly say that I would not be alive today without her continuing care and encouragement. From denial to acceptance to recovery, Reba has guided me nutritionally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Reba believed in me when I couldn’t find anything to believe in myself. Reba genuinely cares for her clients. While I can’t always trust myself, I can always trust Reba – and when you are struggling with an eating disorder, trust can be a major issue. Reba has been willing and able to walk with me and guide me on my path to recovery. She has been a blessing in my life.”
– Missy Williams
