Are you ready to get off the diet rollercoaster and develop a healthy relationship with food and your body? I can help you.
I offer customized coaching to help you end chronic dieting, quit binge eating, and approach food and exercise in a balanced way. Working together, you’ll learn to build trust in your body and achieve true wellness by focusing on your body’s needs rather than on how it looks. The techniques we’ll use help relieve stress stemming from people-pleasing and food rules to help you build a deep connection with your body.
As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor and Body Confidence Coach, I’ll help you honor your body’s individual needs, listen to its inner wisdom, including signals of hunger, fullness, pleasure, and satisfaction. Working together, we’ll unravel negative beliefs around body image and food and replace them with body awareness and self-trust so you can feel your best. Read my blog post to learn more about Intuitive Eating.
Please note: My coaching programs are not for people struggling with clinically diagnosed eating disorders. Please contact the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) for referrals if you have a clinically diagnosed eating disorder.
What to expect from our work together:
I’ll help you improve your relationship with food and your body, cope with your emotions with kindness, end binge eating, and listen to your body’s signals, promoting total well-being.
Throughout the process, I’ll support you by offering tools and resources to help you implement our work between sessions. You also have access to email support if you need my guidance.
We’ll uncover how the diet mentality affects you, shifting your mind and behaviors from restriction and deprivation to self-care and satisfaction. I’ll teach you how to make peace with foods you’ve labelled off-limits, enjoy food without the fear of losing control, connect with your body, and cope with your emotions without using food.

Frequently asked questions
"Can I lose weight with Intuitive Eating?" A genuine Intuitive Eating Counsellor will NEVER promise weight loss as an outcome. Intuitive Eating is NOT a diet. It's about healing your relationship with food and your body, freeing you from the harm dieting causes, and cultivating trust in your body again. Most people either gain a small amount of weight in the beginning or stay the same. It's rare, but some people experience a slight unintentional loss of weight while going through the process. Aside from the fact that weight lost through dieting isn't maintained in the long run, dieting will further disconnect you from your body. The Intuitive Eating process connects you with your body and restores body trust while leaving you well-nourished.
"If I let myself eat off-limit foods, won't I eat uncontrollably?" When you make peace with food and trust what you like will always be available to you, you'll naturally be able to stop eating. Guilt is what tends to make people eat off-limit foods uncontrollably. Being an Intuitive Eater means eating what you like without the guilt. For a short while, you may eat more of those off-limit foods, but only because you've restricted them in that past. You've been depriving yourself, and when we heal that deprivation, these foods will take their appropriate place in your life.
“I can’t pay the full amount. Can I break it down into payments?” To make my services accessible I offer different payment plans and I'm willing to work with you in a way that fits your budget.
“I’ve tried everything. How do I know this will work for me?” If you have tried everything, that tells me that you’re ready and those other things haven't gotten to the root of what is keeping you stuck in the diet/body image trap.
