For me, self-compassion and curiosity are foundational to finding peace with food and your NOW body.
Girl, I’m sick of the world demanding that women shrink their bodies, take up less space and not be “too much”. I’m sick of a coaching space that offers these women superficial suggestions of maintaining a positive mindset, only displaying positive emotions and that healing is a linear, quick process. As a down-to-earth therapist of 15 years with lived experience with an eating disorder and body shame, I understand the complexities of healing and I'm ready to support you when you're ready!
"Having a group of women show up every week and be vulnerable and fierce and supportive is something I will always cherish. That safety net was everything for me, while I was trying to change years of beliefs and rules."
