Professional statement

Clients that I work with often have discomfort regarding their appearance and food related concerns. Experiences can vary, but there are some common concerns. This may mean frequently going on diets ( often called yo-yo dieting), food challenges or detoxes/cleanses and still struggling with getting to or maintaining an ideal weight. Sometimes this can mean constant preoccupation with food, including worrying about what restaurants or menus to try in social situations. The unending battle of figuring out what to wear because nothing fits right or frustration when clothes don't come in your size are challenges I also hear when providing support to clients.

A healthy relationship with food and your body is important. Through guided meditations, self reflections and social explorations, we will unpack internal and external influences that have created challenges for you. With guidance through exploration and education, we will work towards ways to heal your connection to your body and food in an empowering way.

Learn how to strive for balance as you develop a sense of attunement with your own needs and get them met. I will introduce a multilayered awareness of the body and how this may connect to or relate to the world around you. We will work from a Health at Every Size, weight inclusive and anti diet approach with sessions that are structured at your pace and identified needs.


Message to clients

I believe that we all have a purpose with our own shine. My work with you will first be to identify factors that have been dulling that shine, and then explore ways to polish it off so you can strut your stuff!
Living in New York City means that we are constantly on the go. It can be easy to forget to take time to reflect on our thoughts and emotions. Sometimes we may miss a meal because we are so caught up with work, or find that we have overbooked ourselves and now overwhelmed with pressures of deadlines or too many social commitments. Being mindful may mean tuning into your body expressions or paying attention to your thoughts and emotions as you are in different situations.
