WHat I Do
Most of nutrition advice and research presumes the underlying question we all need to answer is "what/when should I eat?"
As a Food and Body Therapist, with a background in behavior change and nutrition science, I have found it is not helpful to try to answer "what" to eat until we've established why someone eats and how that impacts their relationship with their body.
I work from a foundation of positive psychology practices and motivational interviewing, incorporating Health At Every Size, mindfulness, and self-compassion concepts.
Together, let's question your assumptions about food and your body in order to free up energy and time to transform your relationship with food and your body so you can live your healthiest and happiest life.
For the past 7 years, I have helped people:
Take the focus off the scale and concentrate on more realistic, sustainable eating and activity habits
Improve blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and other clinical biomarkers of importance to their health journeys
Improve digestive symptoms
Understand and trust their body's hunger/full/need to rest signals
Feed their infants/small children without fear or stress
Enjoy the dinner table meals as a family
Come to peace with their ever changing body in various seasons of life
