After 10 years in a high stress film industry job with unforgiving deadlines, staying in a string of unhealthy relationships for too long, one which had just ended, and 20 years of battling with my weight, my body was falling apart and my heart was hurting.
I asked myself three questions...
Why can’t you just take better care of yourself or stick to a diet? Why do you keep getting stuck in shitty relationships? What do you really want to do with your life?
I knew there was something deeper going on and I set out on a quest to find out what. I went to personal growth workshops, worked with transformational coaches, studied holistic health and was certified as an Eating Psychology Coach.
* I didn’t love myself enough to show up for myself in life or in health. * I had some deep wounds and conditioning from childhood that were getting in my way. * No one taught me how to listen to and honor my body or my intuition * Years of people pleasing and working myself to the bone, had eroded my self-confidence and self-worth.
and maybe most importantly...
Focusing on my weight for 20 years had prevented me from hearing the whispers of warning from my body, and the cries for help from my soul.
I dove deep into transformational work, healing my body and heart, learning a new, empowered, body positive mindset, and I discovered more self-love and self-belief ever as I began to live a more wholehearted, authentic life.
My body, and my relationship with food became my guide. From emotional eating and weight to anxiety and depression, I learned the root causes for all of it - from social conditioning, to trauma and stress, to diet culture and the media - and instead of feeling frustrated by my body, today I’m empowered by her. She is a messenger to me from my soul, pointing to all the ways my life is out of alignment with my truth.
In searching for the soul food that would truly nourish me, I found a passion in supporting women in a similar way. Whether they are as lost as I was, or just need a little bit of extra love and insight to get them on track in health or life.
The funny thing is, the career that burned me out and led me to my calling, also gave me a unique set of skills I could use to support my clients. As a market research strategist for films in post production, we tested early cuts of the film - the draft so to speak - with audiences who would fill out questionnaires. I would dig deep into the data, often led by my intuition, to discover what was missing from the story to make the film more whole.
Kindof like a life coach for movies.
And that’s what I do with my clients.
Your story, what’s happening in your body, and your relationship with food is my data. I use a combination of my experience, my intuition, and asking the right questions to help YOU get to the root cause of what's in your way to feeling at home and healthy in your body, and happy in your life.
Just like me, you have blind spots. If you feel stuck and at a loss for what to do next, I can help you. I help you become present to and heal your wounds, your inner child, your heart, and the symptoms in your body with love and compassion so you can feel whole, empowered, and build a new foundation for your health and creating a life that you love.
