ARE YOU READY TO FEEL NORMAL AROUND FOOD?
READY TO STOP OBSESSING OVER YOUR BODY
READY TO START LIVING YOUR LIFE?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, first you should know you're not alone. You should also know that there is a way to find peace and ease when it comes to healing your relationship with food and your body. When we work together, you'll not only gain insight and awareness into your own behaviors and habits, you'll learn how to shift those behaviors and habits to become the healthiest, happiest, most balanced version of YOU. Together we'll work to combine the science of human physiology with your own body's wisdom to set you up on a path towards healing.
Nutrition Therapy is a long-term process of self-discovery and experimentation. I encourage you to come into, and leave each session with a sense of curiosity around your relationship to food and your body. As you move forward through your program, we begin to cultivate habits to help you move away from the diet mentality, implement self-care practices into your daily life, and practice gentle nutrition. We use the tools and practices of Intuitive Eating, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Health at Every Size to help you develop a healthier relationship with food and your body.
Areas of specialty:
- weight concerns
- binge & emotional eating
- feelings of food addiction
- diet trauma recovery
- eating disorders and disordered eating
- bariatric support
The goal of movement therapy is two fold. First, we work together to cultivate a healthy relationship with movement and exercise, and then we use the movement as a tool to help you improve your relationship with your body and with yourself. Each session works to combine the mindfulness, alignment, and breath work of yoga with modern day strength training techniques to help you cultivate body awareness, challenge limiting beliefs, and ultimately connect to your body on a deeper level. Every client receives a customized plan informed by their personal story and wellness goals.
Areas of Specialty:
- overall strength and conditioning
- corrective exercise & rehabilitation
- personal training and eating disorder recovery
- pelvic floor disorders
- body positive, mind-body, intuitive movement
- movement for mental health & emotional wellbeing
What to expect when you sign up for nutrition and/or movement therapy services
Initial Assessment: In this first session we really get to know each other. In the first part of this session, we dig into a conversation in order to begin to identify the root cause of your symptoms (not just chop off the outer, external branches with a diet and exercise program). We talk about where you’ve been and where you are now in order to make a plan to move forward. We wrap this session up by answering any lingering questions and setting an intention and self-care practice to put into place right away.
Follow-Up Sessions: We'll work to navigate your thoughts and feelings surrounding your relationship with food and your body that are often difficult to talk about. While this work can be deep and emotional, there is also a strong practical component that requires both learning of new habits, and unlearning of old habits that no longer serve you. You might choose to add on Movement Therapy as a means to connect with your physical body, and build a solid foundation so you can feel comfortable and confident engaging in physical activity that you actually enjoy. Through the combination of nutrition and movement therapy you’ll learn how to connect with your body to both eat and move more mindfully and intuitively. You’ll become an expert in yourself. Then, we seal every session with tangible and customized self-care practices you can implement and practice between sessions.
