My certification

I trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating (IPE), the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology, where I received my certification as a Mind Body Eating Coach.

In IPE’s internationally acclaimed program, I learned cutting-edge tools and protocols that enable me to work with emotional eating, stress eating, overeating, binge eating, weight issues, body image challenges, and a variety of nutrition related health concerns, such as digestion, fatigue, mood, immunity, and others.

My work combines the powerful new fields of Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition. The skills I use from this training are a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind bodyscience, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.

How​ ​is​ ​my​ approach​ ​different ?

For far too long, we’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet. We’ve been told that we’re willpower weaklings or that we need more control.

The majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.

In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating

By eliminating all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts”, I focus on what’s right for your​ ​body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration.

Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities
for growth and self-improvement. In my training at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating,

I’ve learned to help clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but through
strategies that nourish.

What​ ​is​ ​Mind​ ​Body​ ​Eating​ ​Coaching ?

Mind Body Eating Coaching is an exciting and cutting edge approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.

It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition related health concerns.

As a Mind Body Eating Coach, my approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating challenges merely as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight and health.

Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress, and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved.

As an Mind Body Eating Coach, I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that yield results.

What​ ​is​ ​Dynamic​ ​Eating​ ​Psychology ?

Dynamic​ ​Eating​ ​Psychology​ is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.

It’s a positive and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship.

It sees our challenges with eating, weight, and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve.

Previously, eating psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology, though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen.

And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight, and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more. Dynamic Eating Psychology is a powerful breakthrough approach.
