My Philosophy of Care
I am an Intuitive Eating, anti-diet & body image coach. I support & hold space for folks who are ready to reject diet culture so they can reclaim their autonomy and consent over their mind, body, and life. Rather than zooming in on the nutrition side of Intuitive Eating, my clients & I focus much of our time and attention on the mindset piece—holding conversations about self-trust, body image, what they value in their everyday lives, how diet culture robs us of these things, and how to navigate the process of rejecting and unlearning. Unlearning a lifetime of body beliefs is uncomfortable—which is why I’m here to acknowledge & validate all of the feelings and experiences that come up for you as you navigate this new way of thinking, living, and being in your mind & body. I trust you as the one & only expert in your body. Your lived experiences are your truth, and I will never tell you otherwise. I like to consider us a team, but you're always the boss. Any guidance, suggestions, and advice I provide are yours to take or leave. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to this work. I promise to hold a brave space for you to come as you are & honor yourself and the process for what it is—approaching any discomfort and other big feelings from a place of curiosity, kindness, and self-compassion.
About Me & My Practice
I have been a Certified Intuitive Eating Lay Facilitator since 2020, which means that I have completed the full Intuitive Eating certification process, but I do not hold other qualifications, such as an RD or therapist. I am also a small-fat, cisgender, able-bodied, Jewish woman. My family & personal history of eating disorders & disordered eating led me to connect with Intuitive Eating & anti-diet work, and my strong social & political beliefs led me to embrace Health at Every Size, body liberation, intersectional feminism, and fat positivity. I started my coaching career over a decade ago in the fitness & nutrition field, but even then I knew that something wasn't sitting right. When I learned about HAES, body liberation, and the roots of diet culture, everything clicked into place. I shifted into the Intuitive Eating & anti-diet space about 5 years ago, and I love working with others to divest from diet culture, too. My work with clients focuses on learning to identify the systems influencing our feelings about food and our bodies, and learning to reclaim our power from those systems.
I work with clients fully online so folks are able to participate in coaching from the comfort of their homes.
