Our mission is to empower individuals and change communities by providing people who are struggling with mental health conditions with the means and tools it takes to establish independence, resilience, confidence, leadership, and promote qualities which enable them to thrive. We do this by customizing every treatment plan to meet the individual needs of our clients and their families within their own environment. Be A Hero constantly seeks to fill the gap between treatment centers, offices, and real life. We are service-oriented and embrace passion, determination, integrity, and compassion in everything we do behind the scenes and with our clients.
Be A Hero staff members act as role models for success and provide our clients with the belief and skills it takes to highlight their strengths and overcome any obstacles they may encounter on the way to living their dream lives. We also understand that every person has an impact on, and responsibility to, the people around them.
Be A Hero is committed to aiding local heroes in our community achieve their own dreams by donating a part of the proceeds from every participant to local programs serving those struggling with addictions, eating disorders, and mental health. We also donate part of our profits to a scholarship fund for individuals in need of Be A Hero programs who may not otherwise be able to afford the total cost.
Hi, Im Amanda, the Founder of BE A HERO….
I, Amanda (far left), used to be exactly where you are today. I was obese as a child, and later in life, I developed an eating disorder. As I simultaneously attempted to regulate my weight, I was coping with depression and anxiety. I struggled intensely with what I needed to do to get healthy. The requests of my therapists and dietitian seemed easy in theory, but I couldn’t manage to implement their advice when I went home and was left with my own thoughts and no support. I knew my recovery didn’t have to be so hard and lonely.
So, as a therapist, and fellow companion on the journey to healing, I created Be A Hero out of an empathic understanding of the complex struggles facing people living with an eating disorder, addiction, and other mental health conditions on a daily basis. We offer in-home services led by experts in counseling, fitness, and nutrition. Our goal is to empower you with the skills it requires to make sustainable changes in real life.
How we bridge the gap between books, offices, and real life!
When I envision Be A Hero, I want it to be the element that is missing in the world of mental health treatment. As a result of this bold vision, we:
√ Put people first by:
- Customizing every experience
- Providing all services in a convenient location at a convenient time in the midst of real life
- Hiring the best professionals who are genuinely invested in your success
- Offer the addition of an in-home coach who can be with you in your home up to 24 hours a day
- Understand you are more than a mental health diagnosis and your problem is more complex than a label can describe
√ Guide every interaction with compassion and integrity
√ Allow people the freedom to make mistakes while providing them with the tools and resources to recover from them
We want to partner with you in a way which seamlessly allows you to incorporate all the elements of our program without all the effort it takes when you’re doing it alone. We also go to great lengths to ensure your privacy is maintained.

Before joining Be A Hero, Jeffrey knew he needed help. Although his struggles outwardly manifested in his weight, he secretly struggled with his self-esteem, life skills, decision-making, depression, anxiety, and lifestyle choices. He knew his life had become unmangable. In the past, he tried other programs such as wilderness camp and a supportive living environment. Jeffrey was motivated following the program at wilderness camp, but he quickly lost the motivation and results when he went to a supportive living environment. It seemed there were no solutions which could help him create permanent changes where he most needed to implement them. That is, until he discovered Be A Hero.
