I assist my clients in ending the diet-binge cycle and becoming intuitive eaters...eaters who are able to choose what, when, and how much to eat based on their body's needs and desires. I also assist parents in helping their children become healthy, intuitive eaters. And I offer LARGELY POSITIVE, a free suppport group for adults of size...how to be happy and healthy at your natural weight. Over 25 million Americans currently struggle with compulsive eating, and dieting is the major cause of this eating issue. Dieting also leads to long term weight gain, not weight loss.
When you are eating according to internal cues of hunger and fullness and engaging in pleasurable physical activity, your body will move toward your natural weight. The Health At Every Size (R) approach understands that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes.
Since 1990 I have worked with adults, teens and children/parents, providing nutrition counseling for eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and compulsive eating. Professional affiliations include the American and Maryland Dietetic Associations, Association for Size Diversity and Health, Binge Eating Disorder Association and The Center for Mindful Eating.
