Weight management continues to be a struggle for most people, even though now we are equipped with more knowledge and understanding of fitness and nutrition than ever before. For many people weight loss does not simply involve balancing physical activity, and food intake. For those who use food to cope with stress and distress, having the capacity to handle distressing emotions effectively is vital to weight management. Counselling and coaching can help you address and understand your relationship with mood and food, enabling you to be in control of your body and mind.

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 who want to lose weight 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.
Registered Social Worker, RSW, MSW
As we build our capacity for self compassion, we become more in tune with what will be nourishing for our bodies. In therapy we focus on what has happened to us that made us disconnect from our bodies in this way. We explore what eating foods that cause unhealthy weight gain do for us; do we eat for comfort, for relief, for relaxation, disconnection and so on. Which part of us enjoys feeling full, eating to ease emotions and so on. Working with me to support your weight issues will provide you with tools to support yourself through emotional eating patterns that have been difficult to change.
