Since 2011, I've helped hundreds of women
heal their emotional eating.
Here are a few of their stories:
I feel comfortable in my own skin and I feel like myself again.
For years and years when it came to my relationship with food, I thought I had a lack of willpower. I felt like I just didn’t have it, like I wasn’t disciplined enough. I felt like a failure from trying so many diets but never being able to get control of my eating. I had been struggling with stress eating in the afternoon and evening for over 14 years.
My emotional eating was holding me back from achieving the other goals I had.
I committed to Escape From Emotional Eating because I wanted to finally break through my emotional eating. This program was different than anything I had tried before. It was a complete paradigm shift and I realize now, it’s not about willpower or dieting or working out a lot, it’s so much deeper than that. I am so grateful for this program and the support to get to the root, my core issues, with food. I am also grateful to know and share with the other ladies in the group because I learn a lot from them too.
I conquered the after-work / after-school stress eating. I no longer binge eat! I had been struggling with that for 14 years and now it’s gone!
I feel so different now, so much more peaceful and centered. I can manage my energy and emotions where they no longer trigger me to eat. I’ve learned tools to work through them like Digesting Emotions. I am feeling comfortable in my own skin and I’m feeling like myself again because I had lost myself for a long time.

I have a healthy, nourishing relationship with food and my body that feels second nature to me now.
Before my Escape From Emotional Eating journey I was pushing so hard I didn’t realize the impact that it had on me physically and emotionally. I worked 14-18 hour days even though I was completely exhausted. I would mindlessly eat all the time and look down at an empty plate and not even remember eating it. I had trouble sleeping and was on medication for high blood pressure. I also had this “dessert monster”. When it would come to “visit” I would feel really compulsive around food. When it would take over, I was unable to stop.
I finally decided to Escape From Emotional Eating because I didn't want to be numb for the rest of my life. I wanted to be present with my friends and family and truly feel fulfilled every day.
Now, I am no longer an emotional eater! I have been free from emotional eating for 11 months and counting! I have a healthy, nourishing relationship with food and my body that feels second nature to me now. It is so easy to move toward food when I am hungry and away when I am full. Food is fuel to me, even during intense, stressful or challenging times. I am sleeping well naturally and consistently getting 7.5 hours of sleep a night. I am no longer on blood pressure medication. The “dessert monster” is completely GONE! I don’t need to use food to cope anymore.

I no longer use food to numb or self-sabotage.
When I first started my Escape From Emotional Eating journey, I would sneak through the fast food drive thru, scarf down a meal, then hide the evidence hoping no one will discover my shameful secret addiction. I would always tell myself, “just this one, I’ll do better next time” but never did. Gaining 20 pounds in 6 months really scared me. I felt out of control with food and wanted to take back my control, my health and my life.
Now, I feel free. I no longer use food to numb or self-sabotage. I know how to manage my energy and FEEL my feelings. Even though I lost 40 pounds (which was way beyond what I expected), I no longer obsessively monitor my weight. My blood pressure has come down into the healthy, normal range. I prioritize rest and no longer push myself to the point of total exhaustion. This work has not only transformed my relationship with myself, but also with my mother, ex-husband, my husband, my children and the Divine.
Recently my yoga teacher said to me, “You look really great. And not just that you’ve lost weight but you have a more calm, positive, happier energy around you.”
Thank you Jessica for helping me get there!

The quiz and guide have helped me understand WHY I do things the way I do.
Before I took the 4 Roots Of Emotional Eating Quiz for the first time, I had no idea that the four roots were related to emotional eating. I couldn't put the two together. Then, I took the quiz, and my results showed me my Root Of Emotional Eating was hyper-vigilance. I could see how this was me. I was a perfectionist.
Throughout my journey here at Escape From Emotional Eating, I learned a lot about who I am and how my Root plays into my emotional eating. Thanks to Jessica and the tools she has taught me, I have let go of my perfectionist tendencies and learned not to be rigid. These tools have helped me develop a sense of trust in myself. As a result, I can manage my worry and not let the anxiety take over and drive my actions.
Now I have been free from emotional eating for over two years. Thanks to Jessica and my experience learning about the 4 Roots Of Emotional Eating, I can now see how the roots are interconnected. The quiz and guide have helped me understand WHY I do things the way I do, and being aware is the first step to healing my roots of emotional eating.

I'm finally free from my emotional eating!
Before The ESCAPE Program, I reached a point where I was sick and tired of being tortured by food. I had tried Weight Watchers and a nutritionist... both of which I would rebel against and sabotage myself. Nothing touched the mean voices in my head. As a health coach myself, I knew so much about food but I just couldn’t get myself to do it so I decided to Escape From Emotional Eating.
First, I lost 12 pounds even before I showed up on the ESCAPE simply from what I was learning in the Foundational Trainings! Once on the retreat, I learned how to fully put food back as fuel. The mean inner voices stopped and for the first time in my life, I have peace in my mind. I got my self-confidence and self-esteem back. The Escape was such a warm, supportive group where I felt really safe to do this deeper work. I didn’t want to leave. I am a completely different person because of this!

Food is no longer holding me back!
Before my Escape From Emotional Eating journey, I really felt like this fight with food, my body and my emotions were holding me back in my business and getting in the way of the important work I was put on this planet to do. I had an army of voices in my head that would constantly beat me up saying, “you’re not good enough”, “you’re too fat”, or “you’re a lost cause”.
Now I am completely free from emotional eating and 2 sizes smaller, which is just fantastic! Food is no longer something I HAVE to have. I feel so much better IN my body and I’m more proud of it...no more pain and lots more strength! My mind is much more clear, I am more focused and more grounded.
Emotionally I feel GREAT! I am no longer overwhelmed by my emotions. I actually value and take care of myself and my feelings now. Most of all I’ve learned to love myself and celebrate myself, which used to be very hard for me.
And the best part is that because of this freedom from emotional eating, I’ve been able to triple my business as a spiritual channeler, travel internationally with ease and pleasure, and I feel completely at peace on every level.

I’m not afraid to look within.
Before working with Jessica, I looked for things externally to avoid dealing with what was really going on inside of me - food, smoking, drugs, drinking, klonopin. There was so much going on inside of me after the loss of my cousin, I had gained 50 pounds in 2 years. I was beginning to feel like I would have to live with this of the rest of my life.
Now because of my work with Jessica, my life looks completely different. I am no longer poisoning my body with food, drugs or any of the other methods of avoidance I used to use. I've lost the weight and built a consistent practice of taking care of myself - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I have learned tools to manage my emotions and I'm not afraid to look within. I have more direction and focus in my life because of this and I'm excited for what's next.

I no longer need food to self-medicate!
Before Escape From Emotional Eating, I would frequently visit the drive thru and binge eat fried foods until I felt so sick. To me food was the only thing I had that made me happy. I disliked myself so much that I could not imagine one moment where I was not criticizing myself and I thought I would never ever be free from that pain.
Jessica was the first person who told me nothing was wrong with me, but I just have to do things differently. That was one of the most powerful statements I had ever heard. It’s changed how I view myself and how I approach things.
I chose to attend the ESCAPE as a jumping off point for me. I was skeptical that nothing would help me improve my life. Going to the Escape gave me tangible evidence that I could improve and have hope, and it even got me to think that I could improve my life. It’s a great time to recharge and connect with other individuals who are like you. There is powerful transformation that occurs on this retreat.
Now, I no longer binge eat fried food till I feel sick. I eat food that fuels my body rather than soothing my emotions. I have completely shifted my relationship with my anxiety – going from a 9 out of 10 to a 4. I no longer need food to self-medicate. I have a nourishing intimate relationship with myself. I have become a compassionate confident empowered woman who stands up for what I want, even if it’s different. With all the extra energy that I got back from ending my fight with food I started stand-up comedy and really honing that craft. I have a freedom that I’ve always craved.

Food doesn’t rule my life anymore!
When I first started my Escape From Emotional Eating journey my thoughts were consumed with food and my body. I couldn't really focus on much else. I spent my life suffering from obsessive thoughts about food, disordered eating, and always looking for the next diet that was going to be my savior. Add on a side of negative body image and dysmorphia and I was a recipe for disaster.
I went to school for health coaching myself and found that while the information was helpful and what I learned was relevant, the curriculum didn't support me in the way that I needed. I had invested in other types of programs, but they always missed the mark. I knew I needed something more, something deeper and more intimate to undue the emotional havoc I inflicted upon myself.
I decided to work with Jessica because I needed someone to push me, hold me accountable, and support my highly-sensitive self through this journey. I had never worked with someone so totally immersed in this work. It was apparent in every single way that she thought and taught. The way that she coached me gently pushed me into my greatness. Her entire essence is about supporting women to feel their best, do their best, and live their best in all the upward spirals of our lives.
My relationship to food and my body now is totally different than it was a little over a year ago. Before, my thoughts were consumed with food and my looks almost 80 percent of the time. Now, 80 to 100 percent of the time I focus on what I want and desire out of my ENTIRE LIFE, not just how I look and what I'm eating. Those things are still important to me, but they do not rule my life and who I am. I feel SO much more connected to my body that I can now communicate with it. I'm so much more aware of how foods affect me physically, mentally and emotionally. I am more confident in my abilities. I am more confident in my purpose. And I am so much more comfortable in my own skin. Jess is a masterful coach that holds space for you, whips out her tools, and fiercely cheerleads you. Her work moves you to empower yourself. And that gift is totally priceless.
