Too many women live in shame over the shape of their bodies, and this is frequently compounded by the sense of failure they feel at not having succeeded at weight loss. They often don’t believe that it is possible to feel at peace with their bodies and trust themselves completely with food. In my program, we use proven coaching methods to get to the root of the self-criticism and help you let go of the things that rob you of the peace you want to feel. We support that work with Intuitive Eating skills to help you learn to listen to and trust your body’s signals and have peace around food. We also work on managing emotional needs with emotional skills. We get good at recognizing the messages of the thin-centric culture we live in, and build a plan to navigate that in purposeful and intentional ways that preserve our peace. We set amazing examples for our daughters. Giving a client back her mindspace and sense of self worth (regardless of the shape of her body) is the most fun and rewarding thing I do as a coach. I am a firm believer that all bodies deserve respect, and that every woman has something unique to contribute.
