Eating Disorder Therapy & Consultation

Give yourself 30 days and learn how to become a Conscious Eater for life!

There are many ways to learn how to become a Conscious Eater. One of the most effective is the quick start. Here is the plan…

The Plan

Focused effort by making conscious choices every day builds more sustained change. When you add up a few changes over the week, month, and year it yields a mindset and lifestyle change. Receiving feedback, encouragement, clarifying goals and actions plans are a big part of the process to keep you moving. Leaning how to sync with your natural rhythms, listen for what you need and want, and live your life from the stand-point of clarity, calm, and confidence is key

We will meet for twice a week for four weeks to move your relationship with yourself in the direction of growth and greater consciousness, and learn new skills. Your relationship with yourself, food, and how to get out of chronic dieting and into Conscious Eating is the reward.

What we will do…

Week 1 Emotion-Food Relationship

The first week we will put into practice strategies to get off the diet rollercoaster. We will identify your most problematic emotions which lead to emotional eating. By setting realistic goals, and integrating your mind, body, and heart, we will put into place an action plan for what to do with the feelings rather than using food to cope, calm, escape, etc.

Week 2 Emotional Eating Solutions

This week we will dive deeper into the emotional blocks to get really clear about the specific feelings. We will focus on how to work with them without using food while learning practical and simple skills for self-care. We will also work on skills to help you stay motivated as you continue on this path for the long haul, so that you have what you need whenever you need it.

Week 3 Applying the Principles of Conscious Eating

Integrate intuitive eating skills through identifying what you need by listening to your body and eat mindfully by practicing awareness through really tasting and sense the food in your body. These tools can help you integrate mind, body and heart and you will become increasingly able to easily manage food from this integrated understanding of yourself. The final phase of the process is Conscious Eating, which brings you freedom from food double-binds, judgements, diets, and into clear and conscious decision-making about what to eat and when.

Week 4 Lifelong Freedom Plan: Skills + Awareness + Direction = Consciousness

A plan that allows for mistakes, flexibility, and learning through a process of increasing consciousness is a sustainable plan. You will leave the month with increased awareness of what you need to continue on your path of freedom from emotional eating and become a lifelong Conscious Eater.

You are the best fit for the Conscious Eating Program if:

You are sick and tired of being on a diet—starting a new one each Monday

You know diets do not work, but you are not sure what else to do

You need to reset your eating style to support your health

You wonder if a whole person/integrated approach—mind, body, and heart—is your path to change your eating patterns once and for all.

The Conscious Eating Program is NOT for you if:

You are committed to rigid food rules

You love to diet

You have an eating disorder


We will meet twice a week over four consecutive weeks. The meetings are held within the DC metro area in suburban Maryland.

Each meeting is approximately 45-55 minutes.

The month of coaching is $950.
