Nutrition Counseling & Permanent Weight Loss Solutions


Answer the following questions:


  • Are you caught up in a cycle of emotional weight gain and loss of the same 10/20/30+ lbs?
  • Are you “good” all day and “blow it” at night?
  • Do you find yourself obsessing about your weight when you could be spending energy on more productive things?
  • Do you weigh yourself multiple times per day and beat yourself up?
  • Did you “let yourself go” because you were focused on caring for everyone but yourself?
  • Is your primary relationship or love life suffering because of your weight?
  • Has your weight gain been triggered by traumatic life events?


If you answered yes to any of the above, I can tell you with 100% certainty that you can be free of this pain. 

Nutrition is intimately connected to our four bodies: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. How we nourish ourselves affects our productivity, mood, hormones, and natural radiance. Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins and counting points.  Instead, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is enjoyable.  I will help you with meal planning, recipes and resources, but what you get by working with me ismuch more than typical nutrition counseling.  While glycemic control is important, emotional eating requires a psychological mindset shift.

There can be many factors contributing to weight gain, but experts agree that 75% of the time emotional eating is the primary cause. Today’s fast-paced and demanding world has given rise to alarming stress levels and people are seeking any way they can find to cope. For many that means turning to comfort foods that are unhealthy and low in nutrition.  46% of Americans report they are less careful about the food they eat when stressed.

Being overweight can be one of the biggest causes of emotional stress in and of itself.  However, weight loss doesn't have to be stressful. I believe that the very best diet begins with emotional regulation.  If you find you can’t stick to something, it often occurs when you can’t control your anxiety, anger and other emotions.

Permanent weight loss requires an inner shift, otherwise known as a breakthrough. If you don't get that breakthrough, then you'll keep trying new diets and exercise programs without getting the results you want. However, when you DO have your breakthrough, the body you want is achievable and inevitable.

By working with me you will learn empowering and life changing strategies so you can have the breakthrough you need to achieve your goals.  Among some of the tools we will use include the MINDFULNESS BASED EATING PROGRAM & THE STOP EMOTIONAL EATING PROGRAM from HeartMath.

Allow me to guide you through this process so you can have your breakthrough!
