3 Core Concepts that will change your eating
As you know, I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. This simple concept alone helps my clients work through their health concerns in a multi-layered and compassionate way.
Though each of my clients are different, there are core concepts that I’ve trusted over the years to guide our work sanely and wisely.
I’d like to share those with you today in a clear, concise way: (more…)
What gets in the way of progress
A key to making some wonderful progress with your health and eating has much to do with choosing the right thing at the right time.
Yes, it’s that simple.
Would you take off for a cross-country road trip right before your most important week at work of the year? Would you cook a huge meal for yourself when you know your love will soon be home with your favorite take-out?

Your Nutritional Selves
Do you eat for long-term or short-term pleasure?
When it comes to eating for pleasure, it’s important to be aware of these distinctions:

3 edgy mantras to liberate eating
Truth be told, I don’t have a grand story about waking up one morning feeling like a new woman eating fully free.
But I will say, quite positively, it seems like shifting my way of relating to eating and to myself was a progression of openings. My first real opening began with a “maybe.”
Seasonal Presence & Your Nutritional Selves
I’m so in my element right now. Fall is my season!
I’ve enjoyed the satisfaction and meditative quality of raking leaves as well as sitting outside with a warm beverage while allowing my eyes to weave in and out of focus staring into rich orange and red bonfire flames.
Walking outside I’m greeted by the familiar sound of treetop branches swaying and crashing their leaves, a sound I’ve grown so very fond of (When I close my eyes, I hear the ocean…) (more…)
