Renourish Your Body. Restore Your Health. Reclaim Your Life.

Are you spending the majority of your time worried about food, eating and weight? Would you like your life back?

Are you:

  • Feeling out of control around food?
  • Having intrusive negative thoughts about food and eating?
  • Experiencing shame about your thoughts, feelings and behaviors around food and eating?
  • Afraid of gaining weight?
  • Feeling bad about your body?

I understand because I too have struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food, restrictive eating, emotional eating and a negative body image.

What I’ve learned . . . I’d like to share with you

While working through and healing my own issues related to food, eating and weight (I’ve been recovered for 30 years)—as well as helping many clients do the same—I’ve become more and more passionate about sharing what I’ve learned. There is a way to “be” around food and eating that actually improves health and wellbeing. This way of being can end the legacy of food fears and body bashing that’s often passed down from generation to generation.

I want you to know that eating issues are not your fault, you’re not alone, and it’s very possible to re-nourish your body, restore your health and reclaim your life.

Imagine . . .

  • Feeling comfortable and confident about what and how much you eat
  • Feeling energetic and alive instead of deprived
  • Having the strength, energy and focus to do what you want to do in life
  • Feeling at ease when eating with others
  • Accepting, appreciating and trusting your body
