I am a recovered emotional eater, yo-yo dieter, and

“nothing-ever-works-for-me” skeptic!

I Tried Everything

  • Studied Kinesiology and Holistic Nutrition at University and acquired a slew of credentials, certifications, and degrees along the way in hopes that would solve my “body problem
  • Founded a successful fitness & nutrition company in Silicon Valley thinking that must be the answer to solving my emotional eating and “body issues”.(Spoiler Alert: It wasn’t)
  • I jumped from diet to diet, from this program to that challenge…Attended years of therapy
  • Sat in on countless 12-step meetings, including Overeaters Anonymous (which always sparked a binge)
  • And spent tens of thousands of dollars over the course of my life-long battle with emotional eating and hating my body…

And just like you, nothing worked.

 

I would always end up gaining the weight back no matter how much I knew about nutrition, fitness, macros, etc.

It wasn’t until I was at my wits end sitting alone on the floor of my tiny San Francisco studio apartment eating another brownie sundae that I finally made the decision:

All the knowledge, degrees, and certifications I had accumulated about nutrition, fitness, and weight loss clearly weren’t the answer. (If they were… they would’ve worked already!)

Using those as the solution was like putting a band-aid over a gaping wound. While a band-aid solution could never heal the deeper reasons I struggled with overeating and my body….

I decided in that moment I wasn’t going to stop until I figured it out.

That ONE DECISION ultimately changed my life.

It wasn’t long after I learned a unique set of neuroscience strategies to rewire the deeply ingrained, emotional eating habit pathways that had formed in my nervous system…

Right alongside trauma resolution healing practices that helped me heal to the core of why I was using food to cope in the first place….

And for the first time in my life the urge to overeat, stress eat, mindlessly eat, or binge eat started to go away

…until food started to lose its power over me.

I was leaving food on my plate because I was full and sometimes even forgetting to eat, entirely by accident. And the most amazing part…my weight didn’t spiral out-of-control! I lost the excess weight I had put on through years of dieting and emotional eating WITHOUT dieting. I knew then, I needed to share this with every woman who has ever struggled with their relationship with food and their body.

Sweet love, if you’re struggling with food and your body, feeling disconnected or numbed out, wishing it was different, skinnier, healthier, or sexier, there’s some healing that’s needed! As “pro-kale” as I am, the reason you’re struggling with your body or weight has next to nothing to do with eating enough kale!  You’re struggling because you haven’t learned how to have a bad, stressful, painful, or challenging day and not reach for food to cope.  And I’m sorry to say, there’s not a fitness or diet plan on the planet that can help with that.

Your “excess weight” (physical, emotional, and mental) is the accumulation of your unresolved stuff. Instead of processing your wounds and hurts, you push them down, numb them out, store them away on your body, and this is where they’re going to stay until you heal, integrate, and love them away.

The best part is it’s not as hard as you may think!  In fact, the only way for the change to be sustainable, is to do it in a way that actually feels safe, easy, and freaking fun!

Personally:

  • I’m enamored with my 6 pound love nugget yorkipoo named Karuna. His name means compassion in Sanskrit, which is most appropriate since he melted my heart!  He’s my #souldog.
  • I’m a yogini and meditator, practicing almost daily.
  • I sucked at sports growing up, but as soon as I moved near mountains and ocean, I became an avid rock climber, snowboarder, surfer, and even raced downhill mountain biking.
  • I danced salsa at the semi-pro level in my early 30’s #itsnevertoolate.
  • I sold everything I owned and moved from San Francisco to Barcelona on a year-long visa with this plan:  “I’ll figure out how to stay longer once I get there”.  Famous last words.

I’m currently focused on 3 things:

  1. Spending time with my family while in Dallas.
  2. The pure joy of working with my private coaching clients and watching their lives improve and change in ways they never thought possible.  
  3. Supporting my “Love it 2 Lose it” Freedom Academy Members.  The only way to become a member is to sign up for the Food & Body Freedom Challenge here.

Professionally:

  • I’m a professional eating psychology coach, love, sex, and relationship coach, breathworker, and 500-hour trained yoga teacher with a professional background in fitness and nutrition.  My background working with and through the body makes my coaching methodology very unique in that we go way deeper than simply “changing your mindset”.  I use a mind-body-connected approach to create deep and lasting transformation for my clients.
  • I created Love it 2 Lose it, my exclusive coaching methodology, where I coach women just like you to remove blocks and find their happy weight all while learning how to deeply appreciate and respect their body. Learn more and apply here.
  • I grew my Silicon Valley fitness + nutrition company, to a multiple 6-figure company in only 2 short years, helping literally 1,000’s and 1,000’s women and men learn to love moving their bodies and improve their relationship with food.  I loved helping in this way, but struggled watching so many clients lose weight, but then end up right back where they started.  I sold it knowing true and lasting transformation requires a deeper healing that will never come from an exercise or eating plan.  The best way to begin your own healing journey is to apply here.
