Susan D'Addario Practice Description
Hi, I'm Susan D'Addario, LCSW & Certified Eating Psychology Coach. For the past 20+ years, I've worked with people's internal hurts, conflicts & challenges. Whether focusing on difficulties in self-esteem, relationships, family issues, work/career, depression, anxiety, etc., such exploration frequently lead to new understandings & eventual working through. My focus has now turned to helping people who are overweight. At the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, I have been specially trained to coach all types of people with food, eating & body image challenges. This involves looking at one’s life issues that may be influencing overeating. It's not enough to tell someone what to eat. Anyone can read the latest fad diet book & have some short-term success. But, therein lies the problem. The success is short-lived which can lead to frustration, anger & hopelessness. To lose weight for the long haul, it's imperative to address our eating challenges from the inside out. Our relationship with food & eating is personal. Eventually the issues that got us turning to food in the first place will rise up again. Compassionate exploration is needed to unveil the specific blockades that get in our way of having a healthy relationship with food. I also offer Mind-Body Nutrition, which speaks to how emotions greatly influence our body's ability to digest & assimilate food. Did you know: • If we eat too quickly, our body will not benefit from that food • Our brain needs 20 min to process that we've eaten • If we eat while stressed, insulin & cortisol will rise. Both add to fat gain & lean body tissue loss • The time of day we eat supports our efforts for sound health & a leaner body • Our “gut brain” is linked to our brain proper & will shut down digestion when under stress My vast experience as a therapist, along with my training as an Eating Psychology Coach, allow me to offer a unique and informed style for anyone having difficulties with food, eating, or body image.
