How is My Approach Different?
Nutrition experts often promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, how to have a happy relationship with food, and maintain a healthy metabolism. In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology. By eliminating strict generalities regarding dietary doctrines, I focus on what’s right for each client’s body and their personal style. Working together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement. Through training and life experience, I have learned to help clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but with strategies that nourish.
What is Dynamic Eating Psychology?
Dynamic Eating Psychology recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, and our search for meaning and fulfillment. Dynamic Eating Psychology is an essential field to understanding human being’s intricacies of relationship with food: unique, fascinating, and ever changing. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as an exceptional opportunity to grow and evolve. It’s a positive, empowering and transformational approach that affirms our relationship with food which has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen.
What is Mind-Body Nutrition?
Mind-Body Nutrition advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Originated by Marc David of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Mind-Body Nutrition surpasses classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. The food we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition; Mind-Body Nutrition explores the other half of who we are as eaters. Mind-Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, and meal timing profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. It offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
