Since working with Michelle my life has changed dramatically. I did not realize the toll that constant food anxiety/fears took on my mental health…I have gained so much confidence. I trust myself to make food choices throughout the day. I trust myself in public situations with food. I no longer fear going out to eat or social gatherings with food. I don’t worry anymore that I’m going to overeat and feel ill, or that I’m going to undereat and feel nauseous, anxious, light-headed, sweaty. I trust myself to cook and bake foods I enjoy.
I would estimate that my stress and anxiety surrounding food has gone from a 10 to a 2…..I was routinely eating to a point of uncomfortable fullness before seeing Michelle. I was also finding myself very hungry before taking time to eat. Those two sensations are almost non-existent now. I'd have to think hard to recall the last time I ate to a point of uncomfortable fullness. Before seeing Michelle I also experienced a lot of fear that binge eating would return…..The binging didn't come back while seeing her, and I have very little fear that it will return in the future…..Michelle will change your life.

Michelle is so easy to talk to and I felt comfortable sharing things I had a hard time even admitting to myself, acknowledging that my eating was disordered, admitting I really wasn’t eating enough. Working with Michelle feels like having a conversation with a good friend who tells you the honest truth, that sometimes you don’t want to hear but need to in order to be better.
[Michelle] was able to get me to think and deal with thoughts that I had really locked away. Her approach was 100% what I was looking for. Instead of focusing on "healthy" foods—which in the past has always eventually led to me abandoning a diet—she really pushed me to think about my relationship to food and to my body. I [now] spend less time during the day thinking about and planning what I'm going to eatI don't worry about gaining weight. Working with Michelle, I learned things about myself that I never thought I could; her thoughtful, caring approach has made me feel more happy in my body than I ever have been.

Michelle was right for me because she had experience with treating disordered eating through an intuitive eating approach. [Since working together I've had] reduced rigidity with food including eliminating weighing/measuring portions and calorie counting.
"Since seeing Michelle I've reached a much healthier and holistic relationship with food, health, and my body. By not feeling like any food is off limits, I find my meals and snacks more filling, and less likely to result in binges that make me feel sick. And by getting over of my fear of being hungry, I eat the food I want without worrying about whether it will be enough. Overall I feel much more confident in my eating habits, and feel much more in tune with my body's hunger and fullness cues. And I feel much more happy with and comfortable in my body."
