One-on-One Somatic Nutrition Counseling and Coaching for Eating Disorders, Breaking Free from Diets and Coming Home to Our Bodies
I am honored to be part of anyone's decision to heal their relationship with food and body image. I work with women, men and children of all ages to discover their identity with food and movement outside of a system of deprivation and worry.
People often ask, "What can I expect? All I know is what my life is like is not how I want to feel. Let's start with what "All the way through" looks like.
All the way through starts with wanting to weigh less, to feel less (and that's okay) to be willing to look at more. More of who you are, less giving away your power (even though that feels safe) to bow at the alter of thinness as a way to be loved, to not feel the eons of pain (shame, guilt, fear , anger) that are tucked away with each calorie counted, food rule obsessed, about, each binge, each purge.
As we begin to nourish ourselves, with less and less strings attached (no more earning our need for nourishment), we begin to thaw and stop running and we learn to feel, well our feels, and gather strength from the tools of compassion, courage and curiosity. We begin to eat with full permission (which eventually teaches us how to live). We begin to question that maybe my body wasn't/isn't so bad and is always trying to tell me something. It is. With each sensation, with each wave of hunger or fullness, with each tingle and tug and heaviness of emotion, we are learning to ride the waves.
Healing from food and body image issues is always about the deeper dive in. The doorway in to the parts of ourselves we left behind because it wasn't safe or acceptable to be that free or shiny. When you see food as food and learn to eat supportively as this process can give you, those parts of yourself get to grow up with the part of you that said YES! to freedom from food or weight worries in the first place.
All the way through looks like trust. I trust my body, I trust myself. I trust that I am inherently supported. It looks like love. Love for yourself and the body that is always perfectly loveable.
I can work with you via Skype, Facetime or phone from any place in Florida and Intuitive Eating Coaching all over the world! From the privacy of your home, we can connect. I will coordinate with your home town treatment team (therapist, physician, etc) to provide a team-based approach (nutrition counseling, therapy and medical guidance) to help guide you towards full recovery.
I remember what it was like living in an area where there were not adequate resources and the resources available did not have the expertise to help me find peace with my eating issues. Using technology, you have another choice for treatment and support and I am excited and honored to be part this process with you.
In Naples, FL, I guide clients in person towards a healthy relationship with food, weight and exercise and coming home to their bodies. In Gainesville, FL I maintain a strong network of colleagues to partner with to assist you as well.
