• Healing the Hate: A Better Body Image for 2016

    This post originally debuted in January and with the heat of summer upon us I had to re-share it. Key Point: You cannot talk your way to better body image. If you treat yourself with hate you will continue to feel hate towards your body. In this video blog I share with you the why […]

  • Independence from Our Toxic Food Culture

    In this video blog I talk about how identifying and living from your own food values gives you sanity in an often insane food culture. In the spirit of Independence Day- I invite you to celebrate the fact that you are autonomous and can declare what does and does not work for you and your […]

  • #4- Societal & Cultural Norms Fuel the Fire

    A client in recovery wishes you knew: There are so many things that I wish people knew about EDs – and primarily because people don’t talk about them as much as they should given their prevalence and our society’s warped perspective on women’s bodies. No one who has an eating disorder wants it; they affect […]
