A Workshop with Deb Schachter & Marci Evans
- Do you struggle with your relationship with their body?

Body image dissatisfaction and distortion are key issues for many people regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race or background. This can even be true for those not suffering from an eating disorder. Today, few of us can enjoy true peace of mind when it comes to our bodies and appearance – giving rise to body shame, body loathing, low self-esteem, and a disconnection from our bodies.
Helping people overcome their negative body image is one of the most challenging aspects of a wellness professional’s work. Both Marci and Deb offer skills and expertise to help you heal.
As a therapist and dietitian, we hold a unique place in the minds of our clients when it comes to helping you feel better about your bodies. It’s time to FREE yourself of these outdated, limiting beliefs.
