I believe that eating disorders do not necessarily fit into a neat, clinical diagnosis. Rather, eating disorders run across a spectrum of symptoms that can be a subjective and extremely personal challenge. You do not need to have a diagnosed illness in order to receive the support and care that you need. I, and my team, are here for you. Let’s connect (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a complimentary 20 minute chat to discover how we can walk this road of recovery together.
I have worked in the hospital, in the community, in doctors’ offices and by far my most favourite work is one on one sessions. Currently, I run an online library of programs that coach clients to eat mindfully and also coaches other nutrition professionals on how to use this approach.
My approach is all about meeting you where you are at. Where you are ready. In doing so, it’s a gentle guided approach to connecting you with mindful eating. Together, we will work on your thoughts and emotions around food and find joyful ways to connect with your food and nourish your body.
More about me- My husband and I live in the country with our two wonderful, young, energetic kids. The country has given me a whole new appreciation with connecting with Mother Nature. We love being outdoors!
Looking forward to joining you on your journey to recovery.
