All of us are different. We have different goals and are at different stages of our health journeys. Using holistic nutrition and dynamic eating psychology principles, we will partner to create an individualized and attainable plan to get you where you want to go. 

What Is Eating Psychology?

Our relationship with food is a direct reflection of our relationship with ourselves and the world around us. Eating is not simply about caloric input and fuel for our bodies. The act of eating is intimately intertwined with our emotions, mindset, stress, spirituality, and past experiences. In order to truly improve our diets and resolve health concerns, we must go beyond the food itself. Weight gain, digestive problems, binge eating, fatigue, anxiety, depression...it's all there to teach us something deeper about ourselves. Knowing what you should eat is not enough. Understanding why you eat is the first step toward healing your relationship with food and with your body.

Do You Struggle With...
  • Losing weight and keeping it off?
  • Digestive problems?
  • Anxiety and/or depression?
  • Fatigue?
  • Overeating and binge eating?
  • Emotional eating?
  • Yo-yo dieting?
  • Accepting and loving your body?
How Is My Approach Different?

We are inundated every day with nutrition do's and don't, diets and supplements guaranteed to trim belly fat fast, and metabolism boosting tips and tricks that leave us right back where we started. Even standard dietitians and nutritionists will hand out detailed menu plans and recipes, and say "go!" expecting that we will magically be able to set aside our lifetime of food cravings and patterns. We are taught that we have no willpower if we struggle with maintaining healthy eating habits. We struggle to be in control of our bodies and diets but instead feel like the food is controlling us. We are led to believe that our health problems are symptoms to be fixed or enemies to fight, rather than deeper messages that could help us grow . 

I don't believe in a one size fits all approach. I don't offer a quick fix to changing your body or your relationship with food, because you don't need to be fixed. Your struggles with your body and with food do not stem from a lack of willpower or control. They are here to lead you to deeper truths about yourself that we will explore together. Instead of focusing on the shoulds and shouldn'ts , I will help you discover what your own body has been trying to tell you all along. 

Sessions are available in person at Wellspace SF in San Francisco, or virtually via Zoom.
