It’s time to create a supportive relationship with food, your body and your health so you can eat with joy instead of eating to seek joy.

You’re tired of knowing *exactly* what to eat and then blaming and shaming yourself when self-control and willpower seem to desert you.
✔️ You’re a woman in midlife and beyond who is capable and confident in most areas of life, but issues of food, body, and health leave you feeling anxious and defeated.
✔️ You might feel like food is better than Xanax, or food may be working so well to help you numb and escape that you aren’t aware of the emotions beneath the surface leading to eating.
You want to stop obsessing about food and your body to free up mental space for things you care about, like your family, being social without body anxiety, and going on adventures.
It’s not your fault that you’re struggling with food, weight, or self-esteem because All or Nothing Dieting has set you up for failure.
All or Nothing Dieting, where you either “eat perfectly” or “what’s the point?”, has disconnected you from your physical and emotional needs by:
- Encouraging you to ignore hunger and fullness signals, which has resulted in trouble determining when you are hungry or satisfied. Some people even feel anxious when full.
- Taking away an effective coping tool (food!) without giving you other ways to care for yourself, setting you up for failure when life gets stressful or hard.
- Increasing stress hormones, which lead to intense cravings that no amount of willpower can control.
- Making you believe there is something wrong with *you* when the All or Nothing Diet inevitably fails.
All or Nothing Dieting has eroded your trust in yourself and your body.
It’s time to cultivate the Courage to Trust.
You will trust yourself around food when you heal the damage caused by dieting and learn the skills to care for your needs without indulgent eating
And this work isn’t for the faint of heart. Unlearning the beliefs about yourself implanted by diet culture and the metabolism-killing strategies of dieting takes courage.
AND THE GOOD NEWS IS: YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE.
I am honored to help women cultivate the Courage to Trust so they can love and care for themselves better.

“Remembering ALL OR NOTHING THINKING and TRUSTING MYSELF around food have been my guides and my strength. I am learning patience and persistence and not to focus on the goal but rather to find pleasure and joy in the small steps, which will become my new normal.”
“I am able to eat my ‘forbidden’ foods without feeling guilt and self-hatred because I know I can trust myself to slow down and pause before I jump in. There are no mistakes or ‘cheating’ because I expect there will be times when I do overindulge. That’s okay, though, because it doesn’t mean that I have to keep overeating; it’s over, and I need to move on (a HUGE step for me). I believe that I can continue do this and, ultimately, integrate it into my way of thinking and daily habits.”
