Kind words from past clients

Elise is one of my favorite people in the world because she helped me change my life through food freedom. I was working on ten years of disordered eating that at one point spiraled into a full blown eating disorder. I'd realized I'd had enough of dieting and beating up my mind and body. I found Elise through her podcast and nervously reached out thinking nothing might come from it. Over a year later and I am the healthiest I have ever been mentally and physically. Elise is kind, gentle, sharp, intuitive, comforting, and so incredibly knowledgeable. She feels like a best friend and someone who has your back. If you are hesitant, I understand but let this be your sign! The program she has put together is excellent and will help you sort through this if you are ready for it. Food freedom is a long journey and I, myself, still have plenty to learn and improve upon, but becoming one of Elise's clients is a wonderful way to start!

I stumbled upon Elise through tiktok and am so grateful I did! I had been struggling with my relationship with food for a while, but had no idea on where to start when it came to repairing it. Elise is an extremely kind, motivating, and knowledgeable counselor. Week over week, not only did she provide great tips that helped me shift away from binging, she was attentive and supportive as I worked around my personal body image issues. Talking to her was just like talking to a good friend. I would definitely recommend her!

Elise has been nothing short of sensational. Coming from someone who was skeptical in the beginning, I can honestly say she has truly helped me. She is so kind and attentive with any concerns I had. When I say she actually cares about her clients I mean it. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Elise was definitely sent to me at a time where I was struggling with my body and doctors. I had gotten multiple “normal” results and told to lose weight even though I had been working out and starving to my bodies detriment. She gave me answers as to why I felt low all day, didn’t lose weight and felt Intense fatigue. I thought it was PCOS and many other things, but her explanation of my Dutch test results made sense in such a holistic and emotional way. My body was and has been under severe trauma and I live with that. She was so patient and present through every interaction! Never mentioned the word diet, only recommended changes. I had never had consistent bowel movements until I followed what she suggested! She is the best out here!

I am grateful for Elise! Her supportive approach helped me to face my struggles with binge eating / body image and her gentle guidance led me to solutions that brought great improvement and feelings of peace. Elise is warm, friendly, welcoming, and is willing to listen and offer support on a variety of issues body and beyond. By the end of our time together, I absolutely consider her a friend! I highly recommend working with Elise to anyone who needs support with eating / body.

Elise is a wonderful person and practitioner who will make you feel seen and heard. It's so easy to get lost in the generalized advice found on the internet! Her approach is holistic and well-rounded, with advice tailored specifically for each client, which I really appreciated. Even after we stopped working together, she answered one of my DMs and recommended a podcast that suited my needs. I'd recommend working with her if you feel stuck on your own, as I felt before finding her.

I went to Elise because of some questions and trouble I was having with gut health. Elise was very patient with me and listened to my concerns about wanting to eat better but not force myself into giving up food that was culturally significant for me. She provided really helpful suggestions on how I could make small changes and easy tricks to reach my food goals. Overall, I had 3 sessions with her and am really glad I did. If I ever need more intensive help in the future, I’d definitely go to her again. 🙂

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!

Do you feel like…

  • You can’t trust yourself around food
  • You can’t tell if you’re hungry or full and end up bingeing on a weekly basis
  • You’re scared of gaining weight but also want to stop obsessing over food
  • You’re ready to dip your toes into intuitive eating but have no idea where to begin

Imagine a life where you…

  • Can enjoy foods in moderation without guilt
  • Trust your body around all foods and know what foods nourish you
  • Develop more body acceptance
  • Stop bingeing once and for all

Craving Food Freedom is the right fit for you if…


You know that dieting is not the answer

You have realized that none of the diets you’ve tried have worked in the long run. You want to break free and just need a guide to lead you through a proven path forward.


you are ready to try intuitive eating

You need someone to help you navigate this new world and laser-focus on what you need each step of the way. Think of me as your tour guide, creating a path for your next step forward.


you want to be able to accept your current body

Chances are, this is the scariest part. The thought of your body changing is stopping you in your tracks. Since body image is arguably the most important piece to healing, I will help you cultivate more body acceptance every step of the way.

kind words

A former client says…

“For 15 years the goal has been fitting into a specific size. Finally, I’m starting to feel at peace with my body. It feels like a burden is lifted. I am more than just a body. “

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.
