Trust that you *can* care for yourself without restrictive programs by listening to your body's intuition.

Over six months in this high-touch intimate group coaching program we'll dive deep into:
Five Dimensions of Self Care | Intuitive Eating | Intuitive Self Care | Compassionate Nutrition | Pleasurable Fitness
➡️ You've used food to cope with overwhelming emotions and know it's no longer serving you
➡️ You've thrown money at home meal plans, restrictive diets and bootcamp programs to try to control your health because you don't trust that you can take care of yourself
➡️ You feel at a loss for how to eat and move when you're not following a program that tells you exactly what to do, when #allornothing kinda gal
➡️ You don't know how to make incremental improvements in your health without triggering perfectionistic ways
➡️ You want to improve your health and relationship with your body in a body-positive anti-diet shame-busting space
➡️ You know you aren't taking the care of yourself that you deserve and your latest health check-up made that clear
➡️ You've found a way of eating and moving that's working and you'd like the coaching & mindset support to bring even more self love, compassion & intuition into your self care
❌ You've never started a restrictive diet, workout or self-improvement regime only to fall off the bandwagon again
❌ This is not for you if you’ve never turned to food for comfort in times of stress and uncertainty
❌ This is not for you if you’re looking for someone to tell you exactly what to eat and how to move to stay healthy instead of learning to listen to yourself and intuit your needs
❌ This is not for you if you’re uninterested in understanding why you struggle with food, body image and even basic self care that other people don’t seem to struggle with
→ so you don’t have to throw out all the junk food or jump from diet to diet to prevent you from eating everything in the house next time you’re stressed
→ and not have to go cold turkey and still enjoy wine and cocktails with friends
→ and get to the point where you CRAVE working out because it feels so good
→ without pre-scheduling 10 workouts a week that you inevitably no show for
→ maybe you’d like to fit into your skinny jeans again, train for a race or simply give your body the regular TLC it deserves
→ and walk into the party like the most relaxed, radiant and confident woman in the room and feel proud of the decisions you make to take care of yourself
→ freed from the preoccupation with food and appearance, your energy & attention gets to flow into the creations, passions, and projects you desire
→ seeing how much more luxurious life gets to be when you truly get to indulge in the pleasure of food without preoccupation & fear
→ and wake up one day to realize YOU have become the person who meditates, exercises and craves healthy food all without harsh discipline or self criticism 😱
I will never forget the look on my dad’s face when I returned home from the summer before my senior year of high school. I remember it like it was yesterday.
I walked out to the curb where my dad was waiting for me at the airport and his eyes went wide and all he said was: Oh! You’ve grown!
I was mortified.
I remember exactly what I was wearing – short khaki shorts and a poppy red polo, both of which highlighted the thighs, boobs and belly I had sprouted seemingly overnight.
All summer I tracked my weight and food in a journal with superwoman in hologram on the front and for every workout I planned in my self-improvement regiment I ended up binge eating instead.
Alone in an unfamiliar place without community or nature, I turned to food as the only coping strategy I had to soothe my pain. The pain that I was making worse by constantly fixating on my flaws and trying to endlessly improve myself and my body.
I was stuck in the Good Girl/Rebel pattern of trying to do all the right things in all the wrong ways and my Inner Rebel took control to protect me my super harmful restrictive ways – but the Rebel also wasn't taking care of me the way I needed.
This is the first time I remember my attempts to change myself out of self-loathing and judgment so clearly backfiring, resulting in plummeting self esteem.
This experience created an imprint of shame and embarrassment around my body that led to disordered eating and disconnection that stayed with me for many years.
Getting to the heaviest weight of my life during the pandemic catalyzed the biggest shift in my self worth and self care.
When you get to the heaviest weight you’ve ever been in your life…well there’s literally no hiding from yourself or anyone else.
The bigger my body got, the less I could pretend that I didn’t have one!
I felt very aware of my body at all times and painfully aware of all the things I wasn’t doing to take the care of myself I knew I deserved.
So I proceeded to make some very intentional changes.
Not dramatic drastic resolution style changes motivated by self-judgment.
Because I knew from research and many many failures that those don't last.
I decided to make some changes because I was worthy and deserved to feel good.
I finally believed I was worthy
...no matter what I looked like
...no matter what size I was
...no matter what I had done or not done that day
...no matter how much of a mess I felt like
I was worthy and I deserved to feel good
My body craved movement even though it felt daunting to start again, so I started with what felt good
I found a dance class to go to once a week because that felt manageable and fun
I started walking my dog most days to get both of us moving and out of the house
Eventually I began journaling again everyday, made time to meditate and to just be with myself instead of constantly running away from myself and my feelings with food, alcohol and TV.
When you mindlessly eat or binge to manage your emotions you don't appreciate what you're eating and often resent food for the pain overeating causes
But when you are IN your body, connected to your senses, in tune with your hunger, FOOD IS AMAZING! And can be deeply satisfying and nutritious.
Instead I savored wine and well-crafted cocktails in celebration and connection.
I had a big pattern of overscheduling, like spending hours designing THE perfect workout schedule and then showing up for one class or maybe a week of classes and then ghosting – now I actually look forward to workouts on my schedule and follow through because I'm not getting stuck in mythical perfectionism!
(If you know me and have ever seen my closet anytime between high school and literally a year ago...you know how huge this is ;)
Again, another insurmountable problem I've been wrestling with since I was a kid, magically solved seemingly overnight
I realized that I was worthy of movement, proper nutrition, ample rest, fun, play, care and all the things I need to feel my best as a human being
I don't have to be perfect to be worthy
And being worthy doesn't make me perfect
Feeling worthy doesn't mean I do every single one of my practices everyday
It means I take pretty good care of myself, without having to force, overschedule or rely on a diet or strict plan to tell me what to do
Worthiness shows me what I need and gives me the resolve to follow through
an intimate high-touch six month group coaching program for women ready to stop outsourcing their care to the next fad diet or health craze and start listening to their own needs
Intuitive Self Care guides us back to the wisdom of our bodies, the infallible source of truth for what we need, when. Your body knows, has always known, will always know, what you need.
Don't eat them! Self care is about more than just the physical. By learning to identify and meet our mental, emotional, relational and spiritual needs, our physical self care becomes much less complicated and way more easeful. Healing your emotional eating is possible and this is the way.
How many times have you eaten or scrolled or watched TV when all you really needed was a hug or a walk? When we can remove the emotional charge around self care in a body-positive anti-shame space, you are freed to actually identify and meet your needs.
Food gets to be f*cking amazing. Fitness gets to be pleasurable. The burn gets to be hot! By reconnecting with your body, you get to indulge in the immense pleasure available in mindful self care. The more you reinforce that self care feels good, the more you'll want to do it!
