Are you also feeling…
Overly rigid with your food, meticulously following rules in the name of control when really the rules are controlling you?
Constant urges to overdo it on sweets because you can’t stop the sugar cravings?
A desire to eat healthy, but it feels overwhelming so you stay stuck in habits that make you feel sluggish and gross?
You want to optimize your health without a fad diet or hours in the kitchen for “meal prep Sunday”?
Comparison to everyone’s “better” eating habits or “better” body, spending more time judging yourself in the mirror than you want to?
A stressful day at work ends at the bottom of the pint of ice cream?
Sometimes you want a walk or yoga to be your movement for the day, but your mind tells you you’ll gain weight if you skip the run?
If your habits are either: eat veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains OR you’re overdoing it on cookies, cake and bagels, I’m here to give you another option! What if you could have the best of both worlds…your health and enjoyment of all foods?

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."
