I help women make peace with their bodies.
If you struggle with food, body image and self-confidence, it’s time to unlearn everything culture as taught you and instead explore who you are as an eater to reach 100% of your full calorie burning potential to lose the “weight” – for good.
I’ve spent most of my career studying and working in wellness as a personal trainer, holistic nutritionist and massage therapist. Frustrated with the frustration from women who “did all the right things” but still weren’t reaching their goals, I looked for another way.
I personally was learning that being a “perfect” eater was just plain exhausting not only for myself but for those around me. After nutrition school, I had become obsessed with eating foods that one considers healthy. There’s a term for this called “orthorexia.” Food was about nutrients not nourishment. I spent an incredible amount of energy focusing on eating and exercise perfectly. I was supposed to set a good example, right?
Then, I discovered Mind Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology Lifestyle Coaching and now I understand that there is far more to our metabolism (calorie burning potential) than what we eat and how we move. No wonder there is so much struggle around food and weight. We were missing a critical piece.
Metabolism operates equally and simultaneously on body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
Metabolism is the sum total of all the chemical reactions in the body, PLUS the sum total of all our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and experiences.
And now as a 48-year old woman, I have learned the power of letting go of dieting, deprivation, calorie counting and restrictive meal plans and more and more punishing exercise. I’ve become a relaxed, aware, rhythmic and pleasurable eater. I tune-in, listen and actually do less to feel the way I want to feel.
If you’re 110% committed to showing up and doing the work to explore “the person who is doing the eating”, you can lose the “weight” – for good.
You want a vibrant life. You want a life where you are thriving instead of merely surviving. You want a healthy body that will take you into the future so you can do the things that you love, with the people that you love. As a woman, you may tend to try and “do it all” with the idea that you need to be Superwoman. This can leave you feeling depleted instead of energized. What you really want is to be a super woman.
