Life can be challenging, stressful and overwhelming. It’s easy to feel lost, powerless and alone, not knowing where to turn for help. It’s during those times that I am here to offer you support, encouragement, and hope while helping you get through a difficult time in your life, to facilitate growth and emotional healing, to assist you in resolving issues, regaining control of your life, and to provide you with tools to bring about positive change, to help you take responsibility for your happiness, eliminate the stories that no longer serve you, and truly believe in the abundant possibilities surrounding you, while catapulting you into creating the successful, content, fulfilling and productive life you want and deserve. There are few challenges in life that I haven’t experienced. Because I can relate to your situation, and understand what you are going through, I will help you overcome obstacles and get past your struggles. There is no reason for you to go it alone.

Although I work with clients who come to me with issues regarding depression, anxiety, divorce recovery, grief and loss, emotional eating/nutrition coaching, and relationships (including premarital counseling), or needing guidance in changing careers, my specialties are PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and domestic violence. I use a unique, life-changing technique that yields permanent results in a very short time, for overcoming depression, anxiety, phobias and fears, and Post-Traumatic Stress (which can be caused by any traumatic event). To learn more about the modes of  therapy I use, click on the “Therapies” page (above).

Working through your thoughts and emotions can create a newfound freedom to be who you were meant to be. Experience the journey to a new life through self-discovery, positive change, emotional healing, with a sense of self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-worth, empowerment, meaning, direction, and purpose. Allow me to walk along side you on your journey. You deserve to be happy, and I want to help you achieve happiness. Call now for a free consult.

Emotional Eating

Stop the Negative Self-Talk

One of the worst patterns a dieter can fall into is negative self-talk – the inner voice that tells you you’ll never reach your goal, you deserve a chocolate bar because you’ve had a hard day, you’ve already blown your diet so you might as well order the cheesecake, and so on.

If you’re a victim of negative thinking, a little cognitive reordering may be just the ticket for you. This type of intervention involves identifying your sabotaging thoughts, questioning their validity, and then taking positive action to change things.

Maybe you can identify with someone who constantly thinks, “I’ve always been heavy, I’ll always be heavy. I’ve tried a million diets, and they just don’t work for me.” Rather than writing off any possibility of success, you are far better off questioning why past diets have not worked for you and thinking about alternative approaches to weight loss.

First off, you might want to review all the diets you’ve tried to see if they failed because they were unreasonable to begin with. If it turns out that they were extreme (no carbs, no fat, no sugar) or bizarre (cabbage soup morning, noon, and night), you can respond to your inner antagonist by saying, “Maybe if I use a healthy, realistic, and sustainable approach, I will reach my goals.” If you feel you’re already making informed food choices, you might consider focusing on exercise as your primary weight-loss tool, along with sound eating. Or, if emotional eating is standing in your way, perhaps you should redirect your efforts towards working through the issues that lead you to self-medicate with food, so you’re in a better mindset to address your weight issues.

Whatever your situation may be, the important thing is to take those negative thoughts and turn them into positive action. The single most important ingredient for successful weight loss is to believe in yourself and set forth with a can-do attitude. Are you ready to try this new approach?
