Hello! And Welcome!
Escape From Emotional Eating® was created out of my 11+ year personal journey with emotional eating and using food to cope with this overwhelming world because no diet, no exercise program - and certainly not the 932 hours I spent on the therapy couch - ever healed my emotional eating.
I can confidently say I know where you are because I’ve been there too. I know what if feels like to always have food on your mind and feel compelled to eat, even though you know better. But now, I am free. And I am so grateful share this proven healing process and support you every step of the way on your journey so you can experience everlasting freedom and peace with food too.
If you want to make a long lasting change
and be completely FREE from your food and body struggles,
you need a different approach.
One of the things that I hear all the time is, “How is it different?” The first thing I can tell you is that the work that I do is much deeper compared to the variety of diets and surface approaches, even therapy, that you’ve tried in the past.
Surface approaches like diet, exercise and even therapy do not address the roots of your emotional eating. They miss the specific energetical, emotional, psychological and spiritual factors and their direct connection to food. If these vital areas are NOT addressed, you fall into the constant cycle of falling off track overeating feeling guilty overeating because you feel guilty and the cycle continues. Which is exactly WHY, in in our work together, we start at the root of the problem and address ALL areas – the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual.
It could be easy to default to the thought that our work together will add more stress to your day-to-day life because we will be doing some important transformational work together. However, this is something I really want you to get. In the beginning of our work together, you will notice that you will spend less time thinking about food.
You won’t feel so anxious when you sit down to a meal. You’ll be able to make healthy and confident food choices that are right for you. Your mind, body and soul will relax and your weight will release. This is simply the beginning and things will continue to get better from there. This mind-body-soul approach is what gives you the results that last a lifetime. It’s a total transformation for the better. Anything less will not work.
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM
OTHER HEALTH COACHES OR A THERAPIST?
My Journey. Food was my safety blanket, my best friend. I would eat to escape…day after day, filling myself with so much dark chocolate trying to numb the pain of how overwhelming I found my life to be. But it wasn’t just dark chocolate, I would use French fries and potato chips to fill a hole deep within myself. I even would overdo it with healthy food like granola.
I was alone with this deep, dark secret. When I tried to talk to friends, they would look at me like I have 5 heads and join me in my obsession to desperately exercise it off. Which only exacerbated my stress eating.
My boyfriend would tell me he loved me no matter what size I was. How nice…but, this boggled my mind because how could he love me when I couldn’t stand myself and wanted to crawl out of my own skin?
Then when I connected with therapists and other professional they would recommend some form of medication because they said my symptoms were similar to depression. I was already numbing myself with food. I didn’t want to continue to live a numb life with medication. With no one to turn to, I never felt so misunderstood, crazy or hopeless.
At the bottom of that deep dark pit I knew there had to be a better way. I made the decision to dedicate myself to investigate every nook and cranny of my compulsive habitual behavior with food. The physical, the mental, the emotional and even the spiritual. From 11 years of this dedication, I found answers, developed tools and put a process in place that’s now called Escape From Emotional Eating.
I can now say I am 100% free from my compulsions with food. Even saying that feels like a bold claim compared to how I used to feel, but I can honestly say I don’t feel compulsive around food anymore and I haven’t for over 3 years. I truly see and interact with food as fuel. I still love it, but not in the old unhealthy obsessive way. I can sit down to a meal without having racing thoughts or fears that I’m eating too much. I can be fully present. And over these years, I’ve watched my physical body release over 45 pounds of physical and emotional weight.
This is my personal experience.
This is what I bring to my work with you.
My Background. Honestly, it’s my personal journey and my willingness to vulnerably share every bit about that, that makes the most difference in the work I do and the results I get with my clients. However, I will tell you I have over a decade of professional training and research that I add to my personal experience and hold over a half a dozen certifications. Some worth mentioning here are from The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and The School for Womanly Arts. I’ve been named Top Health Coach by Institute for the Psychology of Eating for 3 years in a row and I’ve appeared on TV and various media outlets.
