Robyn Cruze lived an adventurous life to say the least--an actor from an early age, she's chased big dreams, failed in even bigger ways, and not only survived but has discovered a fullness of life she never thought possible. Her journey teaches us about the comorbidity between substance use and eating disorders, how coping mechanisms and life passions provide alternatives to destructive behavior, and that there's no "perfect time" for recovery--the sooner, the better.
Internationally-recognized author and speaker Robyn Cruze published Making Peace with Your Plate (Central Recovery Press) with Espra Andrus, LCSW, which will enter its second edition in Fall 2019. Her work and her recovery story have been featured internationally in media outlets including Refinery29, Yahoo Style, Psychology Today, Readers Digest, Healthline, The Mighty, Good Morning Washington, NPR Radio, Channel 7 and CBS Denver, among others.
As a successful Australian film, TV and theater actor, Robyn is now a sought-after keynote speaker, educating on mental illness (principally eating disorders and substance use) and The Body Conversation—how to have a relationship with your body and the food you put in it.
In 2019, Robyn and her family will travel around the United States in a converted school bus tiny house, filming their adventures surrounding bringing mental health recovery awareness to communities.
