Do you constantly worry about the way you look? Is that voice in your head always telling you that you will never be happy until you reach your health goals? Are you tired of all the obsessing, dieting, binging, and guilt when it comes to your body? If you answered yes to any of these and you are ready to make a shift to feeling free in the body you were given, then you are in the right place!
One-on-one coaching is an individualized program focusing on your specific needs around your issues with food and body. I use different methods for challenges such as binge eating, overeating, body image, emotional eating, chronic dieting, deprivation, over exercising, negative self-talk, and self-sabotage. We will work on how to be able to leave these self-destructive behaviors behind by learning new ways to love and accept yourself just as you are.
This program is a great pick for you if:
You are new to body image work or you have done body image work
and need more personalized coaching
You struggle with self-hate and feeling comfortable in your own skin
You’re tired of diets failing you and feeling out of control around food
You’re tired of feeling like your weight dictates your happiness
You’re over always feeling like you need to punish, deprive, and restrict yourself
You are ready to start loving yourself and take control of your life
How My Approach is Different
For far too long, we’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet. We’ve been told that we’re willpower weaklings or that we need more control. The majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism. In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology. By eliminating all the “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts”, I focus on what’s right for YOUR body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement. With my training and experience as a coach, I’ve learned to help my clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but through strategies that nourish.
Dynamic Eating Psychology
Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field also original to the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It’s a positive, empowering and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight, and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, eating psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions — relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more.
Eating Psychology Coaching
Eating Psychology Coaching is an exciting and cutting edge approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition related health concerns. As an Eating Psychology Coach, my approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating challenges merely as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight and health. Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved. As an Eating Psychology Coach, I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that yield results.
Mind-Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism. Original to the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind-Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology influences digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
Over the course of the next six months we will work on pinpointing the toxic thoughts and beliefs you have around your body, self, and food. Then, we will focus on transforming your toxic thoughts/beliefs and shifting your perspective on those areas.
This program will help your mindset do a 180 turn from constant negativity to feeling a genuine love for yourself. We will work on learning from the old story that used to rule your life in order to be able to stop binge eating, dieting, over eating, skipping meals, whatever your goals are, to feeling absolutely in love and at peace with who you are in your body.
The best thing about this program is that it is not a cookie cutter program. It is custom to your personal needs. The homework and exercises will be personalized around your unique struggles and goals to insure that they will be accomplished.
