Success Stories

Since 2011, I've helped hundreds of women
(and a few really awesome men) heal their emotional eating.

Here are a few of their stories:

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!

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.

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. I knew so much about food, I just couldn’t get myself to do it so I decided to attend the Escape.

First, I lost 12 pounds even before I showed up on the ESCAPE simply from the Foundational Trainings that you get when you sign up! 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 started to get 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 and I am a completely different person because of this!

I feel completely at peace on every level

Before Escape From Emotional Eating, internally I had an army of voices in my head that would beat me up saying, “you’re not good enough”, “you’re too fat”, or “you’re a lost cause”. 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.

Now I am completely free from emotional eating and 2 sizes smaller, which is just fantastic! Food is my friend, it’s not longer something I HAVE to have. More important is that I feel so much better IN my body and I’m more proud of more pain and lots more strength! My mind is much more clear, I am more focused and more grounded.

Emotionally I feel GREAT! They are no longer scattered around all over the place or overwhelming. I actually value and take care of 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 this freedom from emotional eating, I’ve been able to triple my business as a spiritual channeler, travel internationally with ease and pleasure, and feel completely at peace on every level.

Food doesn’t rule my life anymore!

When I first came across Jess (via a very well scripted and hilarious Youtube video about poop!) and Escape From Emotional Eating, I was in very different headspace than I am now. My thoughts were consumed with food and my body. I couldn't really focus on much else. 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 spent the better part of my 26 years of 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 had invested in other types of programs making bold promises of perfect health and weight loss, 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.

When I first spoke to Jess, her fierceness and dedication around women's happiness with their bodies oozed from her voice. I had never worked with someone so totally immersed in this work that it was apparent in every single way that they think. Before I even signed on to work with her, the way that she coached me gently pushed me into my greatness. My deciding factor in working with her was her promise to have my back. See, so many times I've always felt lost in the coaching sea and this wellness world. I needed someone to push me, hold me accountable, and support my highly sensitive self through this journey.

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.
