As a Certified Intuitive Eating Lay Facilitator, body image, and self-trust coach, I support and hold space for folks who are ready to reject diet culture so they can reclaim their autonomy and consent over their mind, body, and life.
Rather than zooming in on the nutrition side of Intuitive Eating, I focus on the mindset piece—holding conversations about self-trust, body image, what the folks I work with value in their everyday lives, how diet culture robs us of these things, and how to navigate the process of rejecting and unlearning.
I practice through a Health at Every Size and fat positive lens. I believe that all shapes deserve to be happy shapes, that all bodies are good bodies, that diets don’t work, that health is not a moral obligation, that diet culture is an extension of patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism, that self-compassion is our superpower, that our bodies are the least interesting things about us, and that we all deserve to take up space in this world.
I offer online individual and group coaching that focuses on learning to identify the systems influencing our feelings about food and our bodies, and learning to reclaim our power from those systems. Because we have bigger, better things to do in this world than spending our lives trying to fit a false ideal.
Unlearning a lifetime of body beliefs is uncomfortable—which is why I promise to hold a brave space for you to come as you are and honor yourself and the process for what it is—approaching any discomfort and other big feelings from a place of curiosity, kindness, and self-compassion.
Please note that working with folks struggling with an active eating disorder and/or giving specific nutritional recommendations is outside of my scope of practice. However, I am happy to work with folks who are in later stages of recovery and ready to dive deeper into dismantling the diet culture mindset, as well as folks who are receiving separate counseling for medical nutrition therapy and are looking for additional space to work on their food and body mindset.
