One of the biggest blind spots I’ve seen for women when it comes to healing their relationship with food is the intricate link between the wounds you carry and food.
Regardless of whether you’ve been carrying those wounds from past experiences around since childhood or it’s something more recent like the loss of a loved one only a year ago, the link between those experiences and food is undeniable.
Think of it like this…
Challenges or trauma create little holes in your soul.
It’s not your fault you haven’t been taught how to heal, repair, and fill the hole in your soul.
So food became a replacement. Eating became a way of coping, a way to push through and soothe your pain, and a way to erase the memories and voices in your head that still secretly haunt you.
It was a valiant effort to try to fill the hole and tend to your emotional needs.
But the problem is that food can never fill a hole, a wound, that exists on the emotional level. So your true emotional needs go unmet, and your compulsive eating becomes a burden to your body, soul, and life.
As life goes on, more challenges arise, creating more holes in your soul. This is why you feel hungry all the time.
It’s because your emotional body is starving.
In the work that I do with my clients in the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, we work together to heal the little holes in your soul by finally meeting and nourishing your emotional needs.
This does NOT mean taking more walks or doing more journaling, although those things are nice. Instead, it means learning how to comfort, soothe and make yourself feel safe from within.
Because to fully break free from your struggles with food so you can pour your body, mind, and soul into your mission, you must address the roots of your compulsive eating, which includes addressing your unmet emotional needs.
If the roots of your relationship with food are not addressed, you’ll unconsciously perpetuate them. You’ll continue to walk around with holes in your soul and wonder why you are still hungry after you just ate.
So, let’s connect and uncover those little holes in your soul, what you’ve been truly starving for, and the next steps on what your healing journey looks like from there. Click here right now to apply!
The little holes don’t mean that you are damaged, <<First Name>>. There is nothing wrong with you.
The little holes are the places we’ll fill with light and love until you are full, whole, your best and brightest self.
The little holes are where the healing happens.
In service to your freedom,
P.S. If you’re thinking, “But I’ve already done so much work around healing my childhood wounding, inner child, etc…”
From my experience of spending 932 hours in therapy, I can tell you that general therapy leaves a big missing piece in all of this – the link to food. If the direct connection between your past experiences and food is not addressed head-on, like we do in the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, the dysfunctions and dis-ease will persist.

The decision to commit to healing my relationship with food wasn’t an easy one. I remember wrestling with so many fears like “is this even possible for me?” because I had tried so many mismatched methods and programs.
Even though at times, I was overwhelmed with fear, there were 5 things I knew in my heart that helped me walk through my fear and make a “come-hell-or-high-water” commitment to healing my emotional eating, even when I had no idea what all the nitty-gritty details of that journey were.
I was clear that:
1. My emotional eating was holding me back.
As challenging as it was to admit at the time, my emotional eating was impacting every single aspect of my life from relationships to my career to my relationship with money to all levels of my health… physical, mental, and emotional.
My emotional eating was holding me back. More than anything, I wanted to be free.
2. It was taking up a tremendous amount of my time, energy, and brain space.
All I thought about was food. Food was always on my mind. I was never fully present in my life.
3. I wasn’t at peace with myself.
I always had this inner sense that I was meant to do more, be more, give more on this planet, and food… food was really holding me back and distracting me from fulfilling that mission and calling.
4. I didn’t want to pass it on to my children.
I knew that if the roots of my relationship with food were not addressed, I’d unconsciously perpetuate them, passing them down to my children.
5. I didn’t want to be numb anymore.
More than anything, I didn’t want to continue to numb myself as life became more challenging and more things got put on my plate.
I wanted to learn a better, much healthier way to be emotionally resilient and emotionally healthy, which meant that I could put food back as fuel and use it as a nourishing asset to my mind, my body, and my mission.

P.S. Even though you know you need this help to end your unhealthy patterns with food, a part of you will kick and scream and try to do anything to avoid it. That is your fear acting out.
Instead of wrestling with your fear, or worse, waiting until it goes away (because it never will), take action right now by clicking here so we can connect. Let go of needing to know all the nitty-grittys before you take action and instead apply. Do it as your demonstration to the Universe that you want to be done with your emotional eating. Don’t let fear stop you.
Untangling Physical and Emotional Hunger™ is one of the beginning steps we take together on your Escape From Emotional Eating journey.
It’s important for you to know that using food as fuel is NOT about mastering willpower, restriction, or deprivation. It’s about untangling the wires that you’ve got crossed (like the one’s that say “food is fun!” that lead to overeating and feeling like crap — nothing fun about that!).
When we untangle your physical hunger from your emotional hunger, you’re able to confidently choose what nourishes you.
In each of my Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, this untangling process and the unique way I teach it is very in-depth (it’s a 4-part training series).
Since it’s a key component to your freedom from food, I wanted to share a short clip from a recent podcast interview I did to give you a taste so you can break free from overeating.
Click here to listen to the audio training – it’s 3 minutes and will change your relationship with food.
Since many of my clients are visual learners (I bet you are too!), click here to download the visual guide that accompanies the audio training above.
In service to your freedom,
PS. I’d love to hear what you received from these resources so email me and let me know!
When life gets hard, stressful, and overwhelming, do you eat for comfort?
Comfort – the need for relief from pain, grief, or distress – is a normal healthy need. As humans, we all yearn for a sense of comfort.
But, be honest: is the way you are comforting yourself truly healthy and supporting your highest good?
Back when I was an emotional eater, comforting myself was tangled up with self-destruction. When I craved comfort, I would eat the foods that tasted oh-so-good but would leave me feeling oh-so-sick.
After spending years trapped in the painful emotional eating cycle, I got clear on 2 very important things:
1. That in order to carry out my mission, I had to start functioning at a higher level. I didn’t want to keep eating foods or engaging in habits that made me feel sick.
2. That I needed to learn how to comfort myself, without destroying my body, mind, or soul in the process.
Fast forward to today being 5 and a half years free from my compulsions with food…
Now when I crave comfort, I first turn to one of the signature tools that I created and teach in my Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, called Digesting Emotions®️.
This simple, yet profound process, gives all who use it, true relief and release. My clients have told me how they can feel the weight of the world being lifted off of their shoulders, where they feel peace instead of pain.
Digesting Emotions supports you in learning how to comfort yourself from within.
Because it doesn’t matter how many cookies you eat, how many walks in nature you take, or how much retail therapy you do, if you do not learn how to comfort yourself from within, you’ll never truly feel full.

In service to your freedom,
P.S. If you are thinking, “I’ve been eating for comfort for so long, I’m kinda scared to give it up.” Then I’ve got GREAT news for you! In my Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, I work in a very unique way to heal the self-destructive cycle of emotional eating.
It is what I call an Extinction Process. Meaning through our work together, your self-destruction habits will become less and less, until it is extinct – just like the dinosaurs! 🦖🦕 So release yourself from any unnecessary pressure that you have to be fully ready to “give it up” on day 1 of the program. Instead, honor the calling you feel inside to heal your relationship with food right now by clicking here and submitting your application. That way we can explore your best next steps together. 🦖💕🦕
Have you been asking yourself, “Am I really an emotional eater?”
You’ve probably googled it, taken a quiz, and dove into what the internet has to say about emotional eating, but are still wondering…”Is emotional eating really my problem?”
As your coach, here is the truth: These are the wrong questions to be asking.
Because you don’t fit the typical stereotype of an emotional eater!
You are smart, successful, and know exactly what you should and shouldn’t be eating.
You don’t have 100’s of pounds to lose, and you probably don’t eat 10 bags of potato chips every night or had some other messy, debilitating “rock bottom.”
I remember being in your shoes and constantly asking myself that same question, “Am I an emotional eater?” Because I didn’t fit the typical extreme example, it delayed my ability to get support and find the right support.
Which kept me trapped in the obsessive, compulsive, and confusing cycle with food.
Because I was so caught up in trying to answer that question and quite honestly did not want to have a label, I continued to try methods to eat healthier and work out more, which was a complete mismatch for me.
Because they had me avoiding getting to the deeper roots of what was going on with my relationship with food.
Ultimately, that question delayed me from having the peace and freedom from food that I have now. And I bet it’s doing the same for you too.
So instead of Am I an emotional eater? Try asking yourself this instead:
Is my relationship with food holding me back from the life I want to live?
If you answered yes, then ask yourself…
Am I willing to continue to live out of integrity with myself?
If you’re ready to reclaim your power back from food so you can live your best, brightest life, then click here right now. We have important work to do.
In service to your freedom,

If I receive your application and this is not where you need to be, then I’ll send you on your way with a recommendation or resource that can support you with what would be your best next step.

Oh my gosh! It’s here! It happened!
Escape From Emotional Eating is 10 years old!
While so much has changed, happened, and been created over the years, like the body of work that has touched the lives of thousands of women (and a handful of really heart-centered men) and the 13 transformational retreats I’ve led, there is one thing that has not changed…
My deep commitment to helping women heal the roots of their relationship with food.
Because I know to the core of my being that when you use food as a nourishing asset instead of a self-destructive one, you become powerful beyond measure.
Because I know to the core of my being that you were not put on this planet to waste your time, energy, and life force being unhealthily obsessed with food and your body.
Because I know to the core of my being, that we as mothers, healers, coaches, and leaders, must heal the roots of our relationship with food so we do not pass down the dysfunction to the next generation.
This is why I created Escape From Emotional Eating. And this is why I have been and will continue to be deeply devoted to setting women free from the dis-ease in their relationships with food and themselves.
With that, I wanted to share how grateful I am for you.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. For allowing yourself to be supported whether you read these weekly check-ins or we’ve worked together for years…I am honored that we are connected and doing this work together.
Now I’d love to hear from you!
I’d love to know whether we’ve known each other for years or we’ve just connected… What was something that you saw or that I’ve shared that made an impact on your relationship with food?
Perhaps it was a video from months ago where I said, “are you hungry or are you tired?” and it really stuck with you…Or was it hearing my own story and struggles with emotional eating that made you feel like “someone finally gets me?”…
Whatever it is, I’d love to know what has inspired you or made you start taking a different, deeper look at your relationship with food… Send me an email and let me know!
I’m serious! This 10 Year Anniversary is a time to celebrate, and I want to celebrate with YOU!
So email me and let me know something that has helped you, and I’ll respond personally and directly to you with a video message!
While 10 years feels like such a big chunk of time, I also feel like we’re just getting started. 🙂
So cheers to another 10 years!

Is your emotional eating a secret that you’ve been harboring for years?
I know it was for me.
On the outside, I always made sure I looked like I had it all together all the time.
But the truth is that I had wasted decades of my precious life in a self-destructive cycle with food always eating my stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
I had tried so many things to gain control of my relationship with food, but looking back, I can honestly say everything I had tried in the past was a complete mismatch in healing my emotional eating for 2 main reasons…
1). I did not fit the typical stereotype of an emotional eater. I was different. I didn’t have 100’s of pounds to lose. And Overeaters Anonymous never resonated with me.
2). Back then, I already knew SO much about WHAT I should be eating. But there wasn’t any type of support out there that would help me access the deep roots of WHY I was so out of control with food.
This is why I created Escape From Emotional Eating. Now fully free from my compulsions with food, for 5+ years and counting, I get to give back what once didn’t exist.
I work with women who don’t fit the typical stereotype of emotional eaters.
I work with smart, successful, highly motivated women who want more out of their life.
I work with women whose emotional eating has been a secret they’ve harbored for years.
I work with women who don’t have 100’s of pounds to lose and already know what they should be eating.
Together, we get to the root of your issues with food and address all areas – the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual.
Because anything less just won’t fully liberate you from the disconnect and self-destruction that is currently going on in your relationship with food.
If anything I’ve shared here resonates with you, click here right now and apply, so we can connect for a powerful discovery process to explore which of my levels of support is a fit for you.

In service to your freedom,
P.S. If you’re thinking, “I’m so busy. I don’t have time for this.” My clients tell me all the time how we get more done in 15-minutes together than they ever have in 4 sessions with their therapist. You don’t have time to waste, so click here right now. We have important work to do.
Is using food to cope, soothe, and escape your busy, stressful life holding you back from reaching higher levels of success in your personal and professional life?
If so, you’re not alone.
The women I work with will tell you how their stress eating has made things in their life heavier and harder.
They will tell you how constantly thinking about food distracts them from their work and truly connecting with their kids. And how guilty that makes them feel.
And they will tell you how they have an inner knowing, a “calling,” to heal their relationship with food so they can be of greater service to our world… whether that’s to mother their kids like a she-wolf or take their heart-driven business to the next level.
Is this resonating with you?
In all of my Escape From Emotional Eating programs, I work with my clients to heal the roots of their relationship with food.
So they can use food as a nourishing asset – what it is truly meant to be! – rather than compelled to use food in a self-destructive way.
So how do we go about healing the roots of your emotional eating?
Well, thanks to my 10 years of research into the Psychology of Eating, plus having been an emotional eater myself, who is now free from that for 5+ years and counting, I discovered the 4 Roots of Emotional Eating™.
Meaning in our work together, we’ll first identify which combination of the 4 Roots is causing YOUR emotional eating.
Then, I’ll support you in step-by-step unlearning of your old, unhealthy behaviors and walk you through learning new behaviors that are aligned with your highest good.
And when you struggle or stumble along the way (because even though you’re a perfectionist, we’re all human, and no one gets anything perfect on the first try), I’ll be there to hold your hand and support you THROUGH it all, every step of the way.
You only have one life and one precious body.
You were not put on this planet to be held back from all that it has to offer.
So click here right now and apply so we can connect and explore the steps we’ll take together to set you free.
In service to your freedom,
P.S. You might be thinking, “But I am sooo busy. I barely have time to eat during my day. There’s no way I’ll have time to do this program.”
This is part of your problem. As the high-achieving change-making woman that you are, you’ve gotten so used to putting everything and everyone else before you. It’s not until you’re literally starving that you do something about it. This fuels the emotional eating cycle.
But the thing is, your physical body isn’t the only thing starving for a change. Your emotional body is literally starving too. This is why you overeat. To fill a hole that you don’t know how to fill.
So click here, apply now and let yourself receive the support you know you need.
P.P.S. If you’re thinking, “Ok, ok…when life slows down, then I’ll set up some time to talk.”
You know life isn’t slowing down any time soon. It’s only getting faster, heavier, and harder. 10x heavier and harder if you are emotionally eating your way through it. So take the first step to break your addiction to busyness and deadening yourself with food by clicking here.
Believe it or not, your relationship with food is intricately connected to your relationship with your mother.
Regardless of what your relationship with her is like today, the link between you, your mother, and food is undeniable.
Our mothers are our first source of food.
We rely on our mothers in that same way your son or daughter relies on you today.
Not only are our mothers a source of food, they are also the first source of our emotional needs – protection, comfort, love, and connection.
Later on, their love or hate relationship with their belly, thighs, and body becomes our love or hate relationship with our bodies.
Their compulsions become our compulsions.
As we grow up, our relationship with our mothers becomes more and more complicated. In the same way, our relationship with food becomes more and more complicated.
In the work that I do with my clients in the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, we work together to heal your childhood wounds, your unmet emotional needs, and toxic food/body beliefs.
It’s a process of untangling and cutting cords with patterns and behaviors that are no longer supportive to you today nor aligned with your highest good.
Because in order to fully break free from your struggles with food so you can pour your body, mind, and soul into your mission, you must address the roots of your compulsive eating.
If the roots of your relationship with food (and your mother) are not addressed, you’ll unconsciously perpetuate them. And even pass them down to your children.
So, click here right now. We have important work to do.
