Our Evolution

The idea for our treatment center started out as a seed in 2009 when Brenda Velissaris noticed a huge gap in the levels of care offered to people struggling with an eating disorder. Though the seed was planted it did not evolve into much until Brenda and Kate Yonke met at a community meeting in 2013. The two introduced themselves to each other and within minutes the seed began to germinate and Evolve began to grow.  In less than a year, Kate and Brenda created a center for eating disorders that fills in the treatment gap here in the Fox Valley.  Kate provides the nutritional and dietetic knowledge while Brenda provides the mental health/therapeutic knowledge.  Together, Brenda and Kate and their treatment team offer a comprehensive treatment approach to eating disorders.
