I am excited about my work at Food Is Not The Enemy as concerns about food, eating and body image are central for many of us. From personal and professional experience, I recognize addressing these concerns and the underlying emotional issues can lead to feeling more satisfied in life and to creating the future you envision for yourself.
I use a variety of techniques in my work with people including strategies for understanding and impacting behaviors, thoughts and feelings. Primarily my focus is on listening deeply and working collaboratively to support you to get where you want to be.
