I love helping people ditch the diet mentality, reconnect with their bodies and learn to trust their inner wisdom.
I take a slow-and-steady approach in my work and love digging in, getting curious, and identifying what’s most effective for each client and their body.
I believe my clients are the expert of their body and I strive to work in partnership with them and empower them to remember that they are an expert of their body.
I love helping clients connect with their bodies, cultivate a peaceful relationship with food, and learn to better nourish and care for themselves through embodiment and self-compassion.
- All bodies have value and deserve respect. All bodies, genders, orientations, races, ethnicities, and abilities deserve compassionate, respectful and quality care.
- We can all re-learn how to be intuitive eaters. AND it's a process and takes time. Many of us have spent years (if not decades) in a diet cycle, feeling at war with our bodies. Of course it’s going to take time to unlearn that!
- It’s normal to desire thinness in a culture that has conditioned us to believe that thin equals beautiful and healthy. Approaching that desire with curiosity and compassion, rather than shame and judgment, is part of paving the path for a more peaceful relationship with your body.
- That social determinants of health are a reality and that individual behaviors alone are not responsible for someone’s health status. I am committed to systemic change and support my clients in advocating for inclusive healthcare.
- We don’t have to love the way our bodies look in order to take care of them. In fact, focusing on motivations separate from our appearance can be helpful in establishing long-term, truly healthy habits.
- There is a lot of power in connecting with our bodies and learning how to regulate our nervous systems. And sometimes it feels unsafe or challenging to be in our bodies. I help my clients learn to reconnect with their bodies in a safe way, so they can learn to trust their inner wisdom.
- Food and body image struggles run deep. Changing your relationship with food and your body doesn't happen overnight, AND we can practice curiosity, compassion and learn to build trust between you and your body.
When I'm not working, I love to bike, hike and ski around the mountains of Colorado, practice yoga, cook yummy meals and explore beautiful places with my husband.
