About us


The mission of Hello Life Eating Disorder Recovery Services is to provide hope, peer mentorship, support and a pathway healing to those battling eating disorders and negative body image in Cowlitz County, Washington and surrounding areas. All services provided by Hello Life are free. Hello Life serves all individuals who self-identity as struggling with an eating disorder and negative body image.

Hello Life has two core programs, The Eating Disorder Recovery Program and the Eating Disorder Prevention Program. The Eating Disorder Recovery Program helps match those in recovery with a peer mentor who helps guide them on their recovery journey, connects clients with resources and education specific to eating disorders, and helps provide financial assistance for eating disorder treatment for underserved and minority communities in Cowlitz County. Hello Life works hard to use personalized referrals for those we serve who are interested in receiving professional medical or mental health treatment. Hello Life works hard to listen to the needs of our clients and try to find them professional referrals that fit their needs.

Our Eating Disorder Prevention Program focuses on reaching our community’s most underserved and marginalized populations. Through this program, Hello Life connects with underserved and minority communities to provide outreach, peer mentorship, education, awareness and support financial assistance for eating disorder recovery treatment.

We are an accredited 501c(3) nonprofit tax exempt organization and a proud partner agency of United Way of Cowlitz/Wahkiakum and Columbia Counties.

We believe that recovery is about self-love, self-compassion and self-acceptance. No one person’s journey is ever the same, and we believe in meeting each person exactly where they are at.

Hello Life was founded by Shira Lile in April of 2015 after moving to Cowlitz County and realizing there was a need for resources to support her own recovery from her own eating disorder.
