I offer support, strategy and accountability for those ready to heal from body dissatisfaction, disordered eating and negative self image.
& this is what I know at my core:
Food, exercise and your physical body should not run your life
In order to create change you've first gotta get curious what's not working anymore, clear some space and set boundaries
Your body, heart, mind & soul are innately linked and all work really hard to keep you healthy (even if it doesn't always feel that way)
Tapping into your spirituality on the regular is a crucial component in the healing & recovery process
Trauma and limiting beliefs take root in the physical body, which can keep you feeling 'blocked.' But you do have the power to heal (& I've got some tools to help!)
Self care is the foundation from which healing & recovery is built, and it can (& should) be simple and sustainable
Here's the thing: You have some pretty rad sh*t to do in this life. I wanna help you heal so that you can actually do it.
Take it from someone who has recovered from an eating disorder
I have my own messy history with disordered eating, chronic dieting & negative body image (which you can learn more about here, if you like), so I get it. Recovery and healing feels really effing hard sometimes. It's a messy, lengthy, non-linear process that can feel exhausting to navigate through alone. But you shouldn't (& don't) have to do it alone.
I've been you, which is why I now do this work. It wasn't until I realized how much time and energy I was wasting by trying to shrink myself down, monitor every morsel of food, or beat myself up about what I was eating, that it was time to prioritize my self & my recovery.
Through professional support, unconditional accountability & strategic self care, recovery from body dissatisfaction and disordered eating, is totally possible.
I have a B.S. in Communications Studies, which taught me a whole lot about the power & beauty of thoughtful dialogue. It taught me that by simply choosing the right words & asking the right questions, we have the power to create major shifts in the mind, in our actions & our lives.
Shortly after, I received my coaching certificate from IIN, which taught me the Importance of tuning back into your body & tools for doing so, practical ways to manage your life & recovery so you can start doing the sh*t that matters most, and tactics for setting goals that are in alignment with your spirit.
And because I tend to crave a little more woo-woo in both my work and my life, I'm always studying & practicing new spiritual healing techniques like pranayama (breath work), tarot, crystals and journaling and simultaneously weaving them into my client work.
Other Things I'm into:
GOOD coffee, homemade herbal tea, kombucha, beer & other weird fermented drinks
My Bluetick Coonhound, Bailey (who occasionally makes an appearance on Instagram & in podcast eps)
Pulling out my tarot cards at any chance I get
Listening to copious amounts of podcasts
Eating & cooking weird foods (many of which I once demonized, but now love!)
Reading the latest in feminism, self-help, health & spirituality
Speaking & educating the kids around beauty, health and body image with Circles of Change
Minimalism & DIY interior design
Brewing beer, dancing & snuggling with my partner
psssst: all made possible by the fact that i've done the hard work of healing & recovery.
