At a very young age, I learned my emotions were dangerous. Whenever I showed any signs of emotion, I was often attacked, ridiculed and laughed at…people would stare, eyes would roll, and they’d scream, “why are you crying?!!”
As a smart little girl, I suppressed my feelings, burying them deep inside my body, hiding them from everyone including myself. Then I’d eat.
Food was an easy escape – from myself, from my dangerous feelings, and from this overwhelming world.
As I got older, my dependence on food to ease the burden I felt got bigger. Until I gained 40 pounds in just a few months.
I hit my rock bottom. I had numbed myself so much that I felt like a shell of a human being, completely dead inside.
When I discovered that I had to face and feel my feelings to escape my emotional eating, it felt so overwhelming and impossible… even dangerous! It sounds silly, but I really felt that if I opened my Pandora’s box of emotions, I would NOT make it out alive.
So I created a process called Digesting EmotionsTM as a way to help me process and release my feelings rather than numbing them with food. Now it’s what I teach my clients.
When I used this powerful process and tool, I was shocked at how instantly I went from feeling scattered, foggy and anxious to calm, clear and grounded. My emotions no longer felt like a dangerous threat to me. Instead they became my teacher, each holding a pearl of wisdom for my growth and healing.
From there, food naturally shifted to become fuel, a nourishing asset for my body and my life.
Now it’s your turn. If you’re using food to escape from yourself, your feelings and this overwhelming world, then I invite you to connect for an Escape From Emotional Eating Discovery Session.
In this powerful private session, I’ll hold safe, sacred space for you to share your challenges with emotional eating. I’ll listen intimately and help you connect the dots to why you aren’t free from the chaos with food just yet. We’ll also have the opportunity to explore whether the deep transformational work I do is a best next step for you.
Simply fill out this application right now, and if it makes sense for us to connect further, we’ll schedule a time to connect, discover and start healing your relationship with food and yourself.
As your guide, I wouldn’t ask you to do anything I haven’t already done myself. Because of that, I know you can do this.
My door is open. Let’s take the first step together.
With all my heart,
