Change Your Relationship with Food • Transform Your Life
TO CREATE AWARENESS OF HOW TO HAVE A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD AND THROUGH THAT PROCESS, TRANSFORM LIVES.
I use positive psychology and health coaching strategies to motivate and guide you to achieve personal goals and make lasting nutritional and lifestyle changes that are gradual and sustainable.
As an Eating Disorder Specialist, I can help you navigate the bridge between food and feelings, creating awareness of what is holding you back from making healthful food choices and maintaining your optimal weight.
Together, we can build your self-awareness and gain insight into the emotional eating patterns and understand what triggers you to eat and what you are really “hungry” for. Hunger can be a symptom, your “inner voice” telling you to stop and reflect…what are you really feeling? What do you really need? What are you avoiding dealing with?
It is more than about what you eat – Although your food choices are relevant, “Food is Medicine” –Hippocrates. The food we eat becomes our blood, our cells, our organs, our brain (thoughts and feelings); so making healthful food choices emphasizing nutrient dense whole food (salmon, avocado, olive oil, leafy greens etc.) can impact our physical and mental health and bring about an outer glow.
The inner glow is about the other aspects of our lives and how fulfilled we are in those areas. Think of the glow that comes when you are walking in your truth, being authentic and at peace with who you are. Think of the glow that comes after physical activity, when you have engaged your body in movement. Think of the glow of pregnancy or how you feel when you gaze at your beloved child. Reflect back on the glow you have when you fall in love, or feel deeply connected in a long-term relationship or friendship. Think of the glow you have when you truly love the work you do, whether it is a career, community or family. Think of the glow you feel when you have a spiritual experience or are surrounded by nature.
ARE YOU READY
TO GET THE GLOW?
Are you ready to create balance in your lifestyle and in how you nourish your body? Are you ready to find your glow?
The glow approach emphasizes balanced nutrition as a key element to reach and sustain your weight loss goals as well as improving overall physical and mental health. The glow approach goes beyond balancing calories; it’s not only about balancing the type of food you nourish yourself with, it’s also about creating balance in your whole life –balancing relationships, work and play, movement and relaxation, and finding peace in your soul and purpose in your life. It’s about loving who you are and who you were meant to be. It’s about feeling empowered to take control of your health destiny and living the life you were meant to live. It’s about healing your food and weight issues and learning to appreciate the body you have – You can have the glow!
