Even the strongest people need help to work through some of life's more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point.We are here to help you overcome obstacles surrounding eating disorders, disordered eating, and pursuit of wellness goals .
Have you found yourself feeling anxious around food, or even around the thought of food? Have you often wondered why it is so difficult to eat, why you feel out of control when you eat, or had questions regarding what, when, and how much to eat? Do you feel worried about managing a medical condition that requires a focus on what you're eating?
You might be initially hesitant to seek out help for food-related issues, but please know that your relationship with food and your body can be repaired. Your overall wellness can be improved. Food does not always have to be so anxiety inducing. Or so hard. You can find peace with food and eat in a way that is comfortable, pleasant, sustainable, and pleasurable.
"I am here to help you dig out, and start feeling better & happier"
