I'm a psychologist and the clinical director of Eating Disorders Services at Linden Oaks Hospital at Edwards. I'm the president of Rago & Associates Counseling Services in Naperville, Illinois, and I serve on the Board of Directors of ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders).

Coca Cola, movie popcorn (with butter, of course), and cheeseburgers are my favorite foods.
