Private Coaching

Think of this as food & body therapy. With my signature 3-part framework, you will be able to stop bingeing and find food freedom for yourself!

What you do, really does make an impact. Having these kinds of conversations, saying out loud to someone else, is where some of the most critical healing comes from.

What’s your food and body story?

Are you scared of gaining weight but at the same time can’t continue with the back and forth between dieting & bingeing? You’re in the right place!

I know how scary it is to venture into the world of food freedom & intuitive eating. But in your subconscious, you know that another diet is NOT the answer.

I’m here to support and guide you in developing more body acceptance while healing your relationship with food. It’s either your mental health or chasing body goals forever. It’s time to stop bingeing, become a normal eater again, and feel better about your body!


Nothing stuck in the past. This is the first time it feels sustainable. I’m no longer charged around food + carbs. I went out to buy summer dresses and now feel comfortable in my bathing suit!

frequently asked questions

There is plenty of information online regarding intuitive eating and body positivity. However, content like that doesn’t know you or your story. Being heard, understood, and supported are the biggest parts of the self-discovery and healing process. Just like therapy, we need to talk it out and be heard. When you go at it alone, it can take years to piece together everything (I went at it alone for 5 years and found myself in the worst spiral until I finally got help). When you have a space to share your story with others and process it deeply, you will greatly fast track the journey.

This may not be the right fit for you if:

  • You want a diet plan
  • Your desire for weight loss is more important than healing your relationship with food

As babies, most of us cried when we were hungry, ate, and stopped when we were full. That isintuitive eating.However some of us lose touch with that over time due to the pressures of life and stress. All of us have it in us to eat that way again & heal our relationship with food through listening to our hunger and fullness cues, learning how to cope with emotions without food, and finding the balance between health & happiness WITHOUT obsession.

Here’s the thing, has dieting helped you lose weight successfully AND retain a healthy relationship with food? You’re likely here because it hasn’t. Everyone has a healthy weight range however dieting can push it too far and make it an extremely miserable experience. You’ve likely also gone to the other end of the extreme and overate/binged due to years of dieting.

On the flip side, imagine if your body settled at a stable weight and it was EASY to maintain. That’s what intuitive eating can do. Sometimes there may be weight gain when you first start to embrace this process. Sometimes there may be weight loss. However when you continue to focus on weight, you will likely continue to be on an unpleasant roller coaster ride.

In general, a lot of my clients restore a healthy relationship with food after 3-9 months of working together but everyone is different. Ultimately you get to decide when you’re ready to graduate. Until then, you will be charged on a monthly basis (just give me a 30 day heads up before you would like to graduate).

This is not a quick fix, there is no magic bullet. This is the REAL DEAL tough work that will take you from feeling trapped to feeling free with food & body. I invite you to join me on this journey to let go of the control on food and discover how to take care of your body in a gentle and compassionate way.
