Befriend Your Body, Befriend Yourself!
“The single most powerful act available to you is to own your body – to walk proud and let others see you enjoying your body. Self-love is a revolutionary act!” -Lindo Bacon
If you struggle with negative body image, body shame, chronic dieting, emotional eating, binge eating, or eating disorders you have come to the right place!
Would you believe that you, too, can learn to:
- trust and care for your body
- listen to and honor your body’s signals
- eat intuitively
- move joyfully
- live fully at your own healthy wieght
Sound too good to be true? I have seen this happen for people just like you, many of whom thought they would never find freedom or healing in their relationship with their bodies or food. I know that you can have a healthy relationship with food, with your body, and with yourself!
Our culture is full of negative and biased assumptions about our bodies, and what consititues health. We are bombarded with negative and confusing messages about bodies, dieting, weight loss, and the “obesity epidemic.” People of all colors, shapes, and sizes can and do internalize multiple, overlapping, and systemic shaming and self-harming beliefs, leading to frustrated attempts at continued dieting, weight cycling, binge eating, emotional eating, poor nutrition and health, and full-blown eating disorders. If you recognize yourself in this list, you know how painful and consuming these destructive patterns can be.
I can help you to say “goodbye” to the shame, blame, and negativity around your food and your body! It is time to break the cycle and reclaim your body and your self. As a psychotherapist, I know that sometimes trusting one’s body is a complicated matter, emotionally, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. I help my clients to address all of the needs underlying a negative relationship with food and the body. Addressing eating and body image issues with an integrated body and soul approach, with particular acknowledgement of the ways we are impacted by the culture we live in, allows for deep healing, and opens up the possibilities for a full, meaningful life.
I will help you learn to honor your body, reconnect with yourself, and embrace the full experience of living, right now. Contact me today to begin healing your relationship with your body and yourself!
