Are you interested in working with me?
If you want to learn more about softening shame and self criticism, or if you have a painful relationship with sugar and are wanting support to change, or if you’re wondering if my approach is the right fit for you, I invite you to explore my website, where you can find hundreds of articles and free resources.
I also host free webinars regularly throughout the year – these are a great way to get a taste of my approach and to connect with others. The best way to learn about upcoming webinars is to sign up for my newsletter.
If my approach resonates with you and you’re ready to dive in, I invite you to join me for a group class, the best way to work with me. I offer regular web based classes throughout the year, where people join from all over the world and connect in a safe, nourishing space for growth and healing.
You can find a list of my classes here.
In teaching classes for over 12 years now, I’ve learned that group classes are an affordable and helpful way to get support. Learning and sharing with a group makes the healing journey easier, more supported, and more fun. Shame, isolation, and self judgment soften in a group setting, creating a safe space for healing to unfold.
I also offer an introductory course, The Heart of Food, that you can take from home at any time.
I also encourage you to sign up for my newsletter to be the first to know when registration opens for my classes and to receive regular nourishment and support.
How long will it take to see results?
As for how long you’d need to work with me to see changes, I’ve found that people gain the most traction when they work with me for 9 to 18 months, which means joining me for 4 to 5 classes.
This can vary, depending on the other kinds of healing work you’ve done, or where you are in your journey – for example, some people gain a lot of benefit from just 1 or 2 classes. But in general, I encourage looking at this as a 9 to 18 month long journey, with breaks for rest, integration, and reflection embedded within that time.
If you’re struggling with trauma or feel overwhelmed by strong emotions, I encourage you to reach out to a therapist in your community for more support. While my classes can be a great help, they’re not designed to heal trauma, and I’m not a licensed therapist. I want to honor the limits of my approach so you can get the help you need and can thrive.
