I lost 100lbs and currently kept it off for eight years (I started August 15, 2012). I remember at my heaviest weight, I wanted to talk to someone who had been there, done that & understood I so badly wanted to change and my frustration at not changing. I wanted someone who could quiet my mind when it worried about my weight and help me gain control of my body and life. I know what it's like to start losing weight, only to abandon the effort shortly thereafter. If you repeat that pattern and put your health and quality of life at risk, then you likely feel that there are issues that need to be addressed psychologically - I can help! I find people struggling with obesity to keep saying "how will this time be different", or "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" or "Why am I deliberately ruining my health." Those struggling with obesity have these thoughts going through their head constantly, and even obsessively. My goal in therapy is to use my own experience of successful weight loss, the latest medical theories of obesity and a good solid approach to therapy to address these issues.

I have authored two books: “Basketcase” (2018) and “Hungry Heart: Break Free from Emotional Eating and Develop a Healthy Relationship with Food” (2022). In Hungry Heart, I explore why we turn to food in the face of struggle, and what we can do to change this behaviour.

Often linked to anxiety and mood disorders, it’s difficult to determine whether obesity is the cause or the effect. Regardless, obesity can impact not only one’s physical health, but can be detrimental to one’s social life and self-esteem. Through inner-child work we will work inside out by first evoking self-compassion, then comes connection to the body (with the mind and soul). Through connection, we will learn to make changes by knowing what changes need to be made or how to accept and love our body for how it is. And just like that, sometimes acceptance is the biggest change of all.
