Have you tried every diet out there and can't keep the weight off?
Do you turn to food to suppress your emotions?
Do you use food for comfort whenever you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed or bored?
Do you find that you are grazing all day long and don't even notice when you're full?
Do you have a hard time coping with your emotions?
From the age of 6, I was an emotional eater...
My parents had me on many diet plans starting with weight watchers when I turned 8 years old. Over the next 20 years, I was on over 18 diet plans and 3 different diet pills to lose weight.
With every plan, I felt like I was walking on a tight-rope and I finally caved.
Every road I took led me to gain even more weight.
The emotional eating and binge eating took over my life and I knew that my weight was going to keep increasing. When I reached my highest weight of 215 lbs. I knew it was just going to keep increasing.
I soon realized that I was missing a key piece.
At 24 I was done with the rollercoaster. I was done with binge eating, emotional eating and didn't want to diet anymore. I didn't realize this at the time, but I was avoiding my feelings. I genuinely thought it was about diet until one day I didn't eat the cookie that I so desperately wanted and I started to cry. I realized that I wanted the cookie to comfort myself and numb my emotions.
After a few situations similar to this one, I realized that the common factor was that my emotions lead me to food, so I started learning to stop pushing the feelings away using food. I lost 75 lbs. without dieting. I have maintained the weight loss for over 15 years by tuning into my feelings and learning to find other ways to cope with and acknowledge my emotions.
I want you to know that you can overcome emotional eating, like I did! After working with clients for over 10 years and coaching them through their rollercoaster, I have built a course that is geared towards helping you get off the dieting roller coaster and get control of your eating.

I have tried everything from weight watchers, to juice cleanses, and just about every diet on the planet. Why will this program work?
Emotional eating isn’t about losing weight but more so about what’s causing us to emotionally eat. Focusing on weight loss will only contribute to the stresses of losing weight. In taking Live Your Best Life and Heal Emotional Eating, you will learn tools that will support you so that you won’t rely on food for support. Only in supporting yourself and learning what the cause of emotional eating is, will you be able to overcome it.
How does Live Your Best Life and Heal Emotional Eating work?
Within every module there is a lesson introducing the module, 3-4 lessons incorporating many different tools that I have gathered over the last 15 years, as well as a summary lesson. With every lesson, you can complete the Journal Exploration Exercise while listening to the lesson. You will also have Self-Care Work to complete upon listening to the lessons.
How much time should I allocate to the program over the course of the 10 weeks?
Each week, you will have a few hours of work from listening to the lessons and completing the Self-Care Work. If at any point, the materials become unmanageable for you, you can always scale back and complete the lessons on your own time.
What if I have questions to ask?
We are always here to support you. You can ask questions at any time in our private Facebook group. We will send you an invitation to the group upon joining the course. We are building a supportive community of women and encourage a supportive, judgement-free space where we can all be open and honest with each other about our journeys.
How do you approach intuitive eating?
I believe that when we emotionally eat, it’s because we are using food to cover our emotions. In my experience, we need to learn where there is avoid in our lives (usually emotionally) to help us learn why we are turning to food in the first place. Once we learn this, we can learn how to re-establish our hunger signals and mindfully eat since those have been lost along the way.
