What made you want to become a Coach?
For over 25 years, it’s been my privilege and honor to help women reclaim themselves and make peace with their bodies. Becoming a Certified Eating Psychology Coach put the pieces together for me and finally created a complete picture with all the modalities and techniques I’ve accumulated over the years. In my work, I’ve witnessed women struggle with trying to change what they eat – but until we explore who we are as eaters, how we eat, and why we eat what we do – we can’t make sustainable change. Being a Psychology of Eating Coach affords me the chance to really dive into the powerful and deep realm of food and body psychology, and help women transform and improve their food story and body attitude.
What do you love about being an Eating Psychology Coach?
I love being welcomed into the deeply intimate relationship that women have with their bodies and the foods they eat. How we feel about our own body and how we nourish it impacts every aspect of our life – our confidence, our energy, our mood, and so much more! Working with women on the “food and body” level, allows me to impact THE most important relationship a woman will ever have – the one with herself. I love witnessing women begin to deeply nourish themselves, experience more body confidence, self-love, and the how to live in a healthy and joyful body.
What does your practice look like?
I work with women ages 40 to 70 who are smart, savvy, and know what they “should” be doing do take care of themselves, yet they can’t quite make it happen in their busy lives. They’ve struggled with food and body image issues for decades, and are ready to try a new, more powerful approach to cultivating body love for the rest of their lives.
I’ve created a powerful and soulful community with my Nourished Woman Nation membership program. My other program offerings include, The Nourished Woman Intensive, The Radiant & Luminous Experience, Flourish After 55, and Hormonal Harmony.
I work with clients from all over the world – on the phone and in live-retreats. I also offer live webinars and teleclasses.
How did your education at the Institute prepare you to work successfully with clients?
The Institute gave me the structure, framework, and language within which to work with my clients. Our society tends to encourage very forceful and punishing language when it comes to describing women, food, and body. Psychology of Eating opens up a new way of thinking and speaking about food and body that promotes a way to more positive transformation.
What was your favorite aspect of the Training?
One of my very favorite parts of the Training was being able to get direct support and supervision from Marc David through the Teleclasses on my work as a Certified Eating Psychology Coach. Working with him directly allowed me to refine my skills and deepen my trust in my own wisdom as a Certified Eating Psychology Coach.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted your professional life/financial well-being?
Being a Certified Eating Psychology Coach is my full-time vocation. It’s my passion and purpose, and the source of my livelihood. I have the privilege of supporting my family with my coaching business, while knowing that I’m helping women to feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies, so they can fully pursue their own life passions.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted you personally?
Being a Certified Eating Psychology Coach has changed my life. My life’s legacy is creating a clear path for women to step into a healthy, positive, and strong relationship with their bodies – a relationship that’s not based on restriction, control or comparison – but rather, one that’s based on trust, respect and nourishment.
What do you see for yourself in your future as an Eating Psychology Coach – where is your work evolving towards?
I see helping more and more women get out of the food and body prison that they might have found themselves caught in. I also see myself teaching more. I’ll be doing that by expanding my Nourished Woman Nation membership program – a powerful online international community for women, where they learn to honor and respond to their own needs in a way that enlivens them, and allows them to feel deeply supported.
The Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training is at the cutting edge of a powerful, changing, cultural conversation around food and body. If food is a realm in which you work or wish to grow, this Training will take you there.
Anything else you’d like to share?
For me, being a Certified Eating Psychology Coach is the catalyst that allows a woman to live fully in her own body. So often – due to life challenges, trauma or unwanted weight gain – women end up feeling divorced, disconnected, and at war with themselves. When a woman embodies, makes peace with, and lives fully in the magnificence of her own physical being, she is able to bring her gifts more fully to the world. It’s been my great delight to watch hundreds and hundreds of women step into loving their bodies, their lives, and thereby gracing the world with their brilliance.
