  • How did you get into this space and what work do you do?
    • I help women heal their relationships with food.
    • The reason I started doing that for my work is I had a very tumultuous relationship with food and my body both very intertwined for almost a decade.
    • I went to the Institute with the Psychology of Eating, studied there and then wanted to get a little bit more nutrition. I’ve been working with clients for over 2 years now.
  • How do you define the term “food addiction”?
    • I try to steer clear from the word addiction just because that can carry with it so many negative connotations and also the identity that people can form and attach to when you use that word. So I prefer to just focus on relationships with food.
    • That negative relationship with food often manifests as using food as a coping mechanism – as something outside of nourishment, pleasure, or anything positive that we can think of.
  • Is your current program intuitive-eating based?
    • Those intuitive-eating principles were designed by two registered dietitians, and that’s a whole program in and of itself, where mine is kind of a combination of some of those principles, with also a lot of personal development getting into the deeper layers with it.
    • I think there’s a fine line between listening to your body and letting it all just go haywire.
    • I came out with a new program recently: Sustainably Lean Academy, which is focused on weight loss, and that’s controversial in the intuitive eating space.
  • Where can people find you online?
