I help girls stop binge eating because I’ve been there. I know how challenging changing it is to make peace with food.
I took my eating disorder in as part of my identity.
“I am someone who struggles with food” was a core belief I held about myself.
I had to intentionally create the life I wanted for myself in order to heal my relationship with food.
My life isn’t perfect. I make mistakes. I fall down. But my relationship with food is no longer what holds me back from growing in other areas of my life.
I want to encourage you to drop the labels of an eating disorder and mental illness and get in touch with the person you want to be.
This is the first step towards having a healthy relationship with food.
Here are a few things about me and the life I have created so far:
I am married to my best friend.
My husband Chris and I have been married since July 2018. Marriage has helped me grow in many ways. I use the same coaching tools I teach to overcome binge eating in my marriage in order to overcome my weaknesses and work towards being a loving, patient and supportive wife.
I love the outdoors.
I have had some of my most spiritual, transformative and simply FUN experiences on backpacking trips, hiking or even just running outdoors. I jump at any opportunity to get outdoors and do something fun.
I moved states twice this past year.
In August 2019, we decided to move from Idaho to Oregon for my husband to pursue better career opportunities and in order to be close to family. And just last week we moved from Oregon to Washington (only 40 minutes away from where we were living) in order to be close to my husband’s new job.
We are hoping to stay here for a while, settle and make more friends here.
I volunteered at an orphanage in Romania for 4 months.
Volunteering and building close bonds with the kids I worked with was rewarding, challenging and humbling. Living in a different country, dealing with some challenging obstacles and knowing I made a difference all made this a rewarding experience.
I finally have my own dog.
I have always been a dog person. And I’ve bonded with every dog I’ve lived with. Just recently, Chris & I adopted our own dog. She is an angel and we love spoiling her.
There is a lot of good in my life and also some difficult things I deal with. I am so grateful I have tools to help me through all of it.
There is a life out there that is free of disordered eating. It is possible and I am here to help you get there!
