Message to clients

In today's society trying to lose weight, fad diets and filtering your photos seem to be the unfortunate norm. How do you know when you've crossed over into problematic territory? Maybe you're stuck in a cycle of dieting and overeating. Perhaps you can't stop thinking about calories no matter how hard you try. There might be certain food rules that you can't help but follow, even though you know they make no sense at all. That number on the scale seems to define your worth and even gets in the way of you being present with loved ones or achieving your goals. Our relationship to food and our bodies are deeply personal and complex and it deserves a treatment that is equally as sophisticated. Together we will work to identify your goals, understand what is driving these behaviors and most importantly, heal the relationship between your mind and body.
