Feel out of control around food?
Maybe even consider yourself a food addict?
Find yourself obsessing over every bite of food you take?
One cookie and there goes your whole day, right?
And, for the cherry on top, if you’re anything like 95% of everyone else on a diet, you’re a chronic emotional eater and binge-eater, yes?
I get it, friend, I’ve been there. It’s exhausting, all consuming, and feels so isolating.
I know you long for consistency, but just can’t seem to stay on track, and wish food didn’t take so much of your time and energy.
Clearly, you need to be more disciplined, right?
No. More restriction is not the answer; it’s actually one of the main reasons we get stuck.
Dieting and food rules erode trust in your body by using external rules to determine what, when, why, and how much you eat; setting the stage for the binge, shame, restrict cycle.
But it doesn’t have to be this way
You can reclaim your sanity and take back control. Because eating should be easy, and stepping on the scale shouldn’t steal your joy- as a matter of fact, throw that friggen thing away!
You can make peace with food, put an end to the obsessing and worrying, and stop fighting your body.
Discover what it feels like to eat food that actually satisfies you, instead of force feeding yourself salads, while learning how to move your body in ways that feel good and are enjoyable (read: if you hate running, don’t run).
Shift your mindset from viewing food from a perspective of restriction and guilt, to one of nourishment and enjoyment, as you cultivate a sense of confidence and trust in your amazingly brilliant body.
You are not alone in this
Together, we are going to explore your eating behaviors, expectations, and beliefs in order to get to the root of your struggle, so that you can take back control of your life.
And finally get some peace of mind!
My clients tell me things like,
“This is liberating”
“I feel happier”
“Food doesn’t control me anymore”
“I stopped bingeing”
“I don’t feel like a food addict anymore”
“I’m more in control and confident about my food choices”
“I no longer obsess over what I ate”
Here’s the catch…
It takes time and a willingness to try a different approach, because old ways don’t open new doors (good Lord that took me a long time to learn).
Just as you wouldn’t expect to go to therapy once and recover from a painful past or to work on your marriage, when it comes to healing your relationship with food it’s no different.
There are no quick fixes. This is a journey, and one that comes with ebbs and flows, because, well, that’s life.
Expecting anything different will only leave you disappointed. But I promise you, it’s worth the time and effort.
Throughout this journey, I’m by your side providing you consistent, nonjudgmental guidance and support all along the way. I pride myself on making myself available to my clients, which is why in addition to our time together I offer text, email, and phone support in between sessions.
