Self-esteem and body image are strongly linked. Neither one comes easy in our society, for men or women. But both can be achieved ! I have seen it ! I have been on the team and been part of creating both for people. And for myself. It's been a wild ride and one I am happy to tell and share. It's a fight worth fighting and it's a journey worth taking. And I believe it is one best taken with your very own guide, therapist, mentor, coach and cheerleader ! Think of it as a river trip down the rapids! You will survive and be so proud of your trip. And you will want to share the photos too !
I am passionate about guiding you toward feeling good about your body and about who you are no matter what size or shape your body is in. As a team, you and I can get you to where you want to be...to maintain healthy thinking and healthy behaviors. I believe self-acceptance is the beginning of this journey and that self-acceptance brings the changes of which you dream. I also believe having a life in which you are feeling safe and content is the foundation for taking those baby steps to a new relationship with food, healthy eating, and with loving yourself.
Bringing your dreams into reality can be a daunting task, especially for those who are caretakers in the world. It seems that listening to your own needs, desires, and wishes can be at the bottom of your list. Often times there is no time for giving yourself the care, the attention, and the healthy and yummy foods you need and deserve. Sometimes you can feel that you just exist to create happiness and good health for others.
