You know that moment when you’re not even hungry, but still, there you stand in front of the refrigerator looking for — something. Maybe it’s something you can’t even name, but food has always been there for you.
I spent 40 years on that Diet Yo-Yo, and in 2012, I finally smashed it by overcoming emotional eating, and I’ve maintained my healthy weight since then. When you aren’t eating to soothe yourself, you save a whole bunch of calories.
My mission is to help others who struggle with their weight, who look to food for stress relief and to soothe themselves. No diet, exercise routine, or magic diet potion can counter the effects when we’ve stuffed down our feelings and followed it with a food chaser. We have to heal our hearts. When we face our stuff, we no longer need to stuff our faces.
With a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and a Clinical Residency, I utilize traditional and contemporary models as well as relaxation and horse-assisted methods to help my clients free themselves by addressing emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. In 2011, I opened an international private practice in counseling serving clients and colleagues in the U. S., United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, India, Vietnam, South Africa, Romania, Australia, and New Zealand.

Before and after photos: Forty years on my own yo-yo, although I don’t have a photo before my first diet at age 10–in the 70s, we didn’t think of before and after pictures. I figure I lost about 2000 pounds–up and down five to ten pounds here and there, to big chunks of 25 to 40 before regaining it, to the last time when I finally reached my goal by facing my stuff and overcoming emotional eating.
