Do you often feel powerless over food and find yourself obsessing over your weight and shape?

Perhaps you have a sense that things have gotten out of control, or that you have lost yourself in the midst of an unending battle with food, eating, and your body image.

Whether food is your closest friend or worst enemy (or both), you may feel overwhelmed with guilt, shame, anxiety, hopelessness, or sorrow.

Oftentimes, these feelings, coupled with a strong sense of failure or worthlessness, may keep you from living a rich, full, happy life, and from achieving your life goals.

Whether you restrict your calories (by cutting out foods, macronutrients, or amount of food), binge eat, diet excessively, purge, or exercise to “make up” for extra calories- I can imagine that your eating (and life) may feel out of control.

These issues can be distressing and isolating, however struggling with food and body image is not your fault. Help is available to guide you to explore the areas in your life that aren't working, and move toward positive change. I am an expert in eating disorders, compulsive exercise, chronic or extreme dieting, emotional overeating, body image, and trauma. Recovery is possible, and there is hope to begin to create a life that you can love.

Make Peace with Food, Your Body, and Your Life 

With nearly 10 years of experience, I can help you to work toward recovery.
