She has is trained as a Mind Body Eating Coach from the Institute for the Psychology of Eating and has run numerous mind/body workshops including how to overcome emotional eating and how to manage your energy. She works with her clients to strengthen their mindset and build emotional resiliency so that they can ditch the on-again-off-again diet cycle and create a lasting lifestyle change.
