Feeling defeated and frustrated as you repeatedly struggle with your moods and emotional eating? Friends, family, and healthcare professionals ask “why can’t you just stop eating and lose weight?” These comments amplify the guilt, shame, negative self, and body talk leading to isolation….. but you are more than your behavior around food, weight, and eating.
What Sessions Are Like:
You and I can start your journey to a more joyful, fulfilling, brighter life free from your mood and eating behavior struggles. As a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, my aim is to provide you with a safe, private space to share your struggles with anxiety, depression, Binge, and Compulsive Overeating. I offer in-person and virtual psychotherapy as well as functional nutrition therapy sessions. I want to learn more about your personal struggle and help you develop a personalized plan that fits into your daily routine. This personalized plan will start with identifying the quality of life that you want to live free of your struggle. Not just identifying the goals but identifying the “why”.
What purpose are these goals going to serve?
What do you see yourself doing once you are free from your struggles?
What is that going to feel like?
Imagine walking out the door every day with those feelings!
Our discussions and assignments will help you move towards this purpose and those feelings. Patients often say “Nobody has ever worked with me this way before….” It’s because, our work really resonates with their sense of purpose and the desire to live a lifestyle free from obsessing about their food, weight, and eating.
My goals are your goals – to embrace what healthy means and looks like for you, not just in your refrigerator, but in your heart and mind as well.
Already seeing a psychotherapist or nutrition therapist? Not to worry, I will make sure the work we do together complements the work with your other treatment professionals. If you’re comfortable, we’ll be working together as a team to help you reach your goals. We’ll work together on self-advocacy, what health looks like for you, and how to make the best choices for your emotional and nutritional care going forward.
WARNING: Even though this is not a weight loss program, your weight may unintentionally adjust as you develop a more positive outlook on food, weight, and eating!
