For many women, when we think about who we want to be in the world, we answer “thinner.” This is the result of being saturated by a diet culture. A culture that tells us we are not “good enough.” Somewhere along the way we begin to manage our pain with food. We become disconnected and food becomes our buddy even if we have a significant partnership, children and a thriving career. It is not easy to leave this spiral of using food to monitor emotions. Science has failed us in the weight loss department with a calorie in, calorie out belief system as the path to our relationship with food. For many years I was an expert at binge eating, and I know how it feels to be lost in the next bite, to feel sick from overeating and not be able to stop, to feel humiliated because you can’t access your true feelings. Trust me there is a way out and that way is going inward. The liberation from food as an emotional crutch will enable you to view life through an entirely different lens; one that will help you to love yourself and others more deeply, discover your dreams and enhance your energy. Let me tell you a little about my educational background, so you feel comfortable that I have the experience, skills and knowledge to help you move the needle from food as a hiding place to food as a nourishing place. I received my master’s degree from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology with a specialization in the psychology of mind body wellness. I accented my education in the mind body paradigm with yoga teacher training in the tantra tradition. I continued my education in an intensive coach/counseling certification in psychology of eating, focusing on unwanted eating habits as a symptom of a larger life question. I will lead you on a fascinating journey of who you are as an eater to unearth who you are as a human being. I believe in your wholeness and your right to live a healthy empowered life full of love.
