Hello and Welcome!
You have come to the right place if you’re looking for support and guidance with your struggles with food, mood, weight, and eating behaviors.
Am I going to tell you that you’re going to lose weight- NO! You don’t need me to put you on yet another diet or weight loss program. But you may notice weight/size changes as we do this work together.
It’s important to understand that the root causes of your struggles with mood and eating behavior are complex and require specialized treatment. Treatment that fad diets and commercial weight loss programs just don’t provide.
Each person has different reasons for their eating behavior. They could be:
- poor blood sugar control
- hormonal imbalances due to aging and stress
- enjoying food as a source of comfort.
- using food to manage anxiety and depression
- poor gut health, difficulty digesting, absorbing and using nutrients from food
- problems with finances, academics, careers or relationships
Your weight IS a symptom of these underlying root issues. Guilt, shame, and isolation just make things worse.
That is why, as a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, I am choosing to work only with adults struggling to manage their moods and eating behaviors. Your needs are unique and our work together will directly target those unique needs.
You and I, together with other members of your treatment team, will develop your personalized plan using psychotherapy and nutrition therapy to target your root causes to manage your moods and stop the binge and compulsive eating behavior.
Please know that this work cannot be done while on a restrictive diet or a weight loss program.
If you still feel the need to diet or focus on weight loss finish your program FIRST, then call me for a complimentary consultation so that we can focus on your journey towards a life free of mood and eating struggles.
