Help clients finally find the nourishing center
between rigid diets and chaotic overeating
We all eat for reasons other than hunger sometimes.

But clients who struggle with food and weight get caught in a diet/binge cycle that can feel impossible to break.

Believing they'll be happier and healthier a few pounds lighter, they restrict foods...

...but deprivation triggers binges and the guilt that goes along with it...

...leading right to the next diet.

Now you can finally lead your clients out of emotional eating and body shame and into an embodied, peaceful relationship with food and weight!

They'll show you the most up-to-date, affirming interventions you need to skillfully and sensitively help your clients improve their relationships with their bodies — no willpower required! You'll learn:
  • Tools to help clients calm the nervous system and regulate emotions without turning to food
  • Mindful and intuitive eating approaches to re-establish body cues for hunger and fullness
  • Trauma-informed CBT, ACT, EMDR, IFS, and somatic strategies to transform shame into empowerment
