are you tired of living with food guilt?

  • If you feel done with the stress and guilt of restrictive diets –  you’re not doomed because of it! My 3 month program helps you define – and then find – your best health, without a side of food guilt and body shame.

 

 

Melissa’s approach helps you improve your WHOLE health

in a way that honors your past or current struggles with: yo-yo dieting, binge eating, emotional eating, negative body image, and/or eating disorder recovery

No More Guilt improved my well-being in so many ways! Working one-on-one with Melissa was great. We were able to examine my relationship with food, body image and areas I struggle with such as binging and restricting in a judgment-free way. Her coaching is incredibly holistic and covers mind, body and spirit in my relationship with food that I haven’t seen elsewhere with other Registered Dietitians.

She was encouraging and thoughtful and gave practical and real world advice on how to address every day challenges around food, diets, body image, etc. that I could apply immediately. If you struggle with your relationship with food and are interested in a structured approach to examining this that is non-judgmental and easy to implement, Melissa’s program is the way to go.

Before working with Melissa, I was in constant worry of what to eat, when to eat, how much, what were the calories/points/macros and could I work it all off later? Why was my body the way that it is and how can I change it and force it to be what society ideals tell me it should be.

I was constantly seeking acceptance for my appearance and my dedication to changing my appearance, rather than loving myself and caring for myself in the way that I need.

Now I am not in constant obsession with food and thinking about how to restrict now to get what I want later. My brain is free to do other things. Engage more meaningfully with the people closest to me. Ultimately, I get to model healthy behavior for my children. And be more mindfully present in my marriage.  Melissa is honest and open, her approach to changing is not forceful.

She walks alongside you on the journey and has insight into behavior and thought patterns related to food and body image that are unique and helpful.

{

Six months ago, I was stressed and anxious constantly and turned to food as a coping mechanism pretty consistently. I knew this wasn’t the right answer,  but couldn’t change it, kept gaining weight, and kept beating myself up for it. My mental health was declining because I made myself feel like a failure for my lack of will power and self esteem around food.

Through this program I was able to learn why I chose food to cope,  determine alternative strategies,  and manage my binging and over eating in healthier ways.

Melissa is FANTASTIC! I don’t know how she does it, but she was so skilled and started with the basics and gradually advancing my progression. Melissa was able to ask the right kinds of questions where I was able to connect the dots myself through her guidance.

Melissa was a light in the dark and I am so pleased I invested in myself to work with her! There really is no substitute for the framework Melissa provides.

FAQ

Do I have to work with you for a minimum of 3 months?

Yes. Improving your relationship with food does not happen overnight. New habits take at least 3 months to learn. I require this timeframe in order to help you succeed.

What if I need more help after 3 months?

I offer a progress review at the end of your program so we can assess where you are in your food freedom journey. I offer maintenance support programs that you may choose to enroll in from there.

Can you guarantee success?

I provide my proven step-by-step framework and methodology to help you improve your relationship with food. My clients who apply the method and follow my framework find success.

Do you take insurance?

Not at this time. I’m happy to offer an invoice for you to submit to your insurance provider for out-of-network reimbursement, though benefits will vary.

How will we meet?

All meetings are held by Zoom video conference.

What is mobile chat?

Private coaching clients get access to my mobile app which includes a secure messenger (like texting). In addition, you can journal experiences with food, body image, and movement for feedback between sessions.

No More Guilt clients agree to confidentiality and discussion guidelines that support the principles of Health at Every Size ®, Intuitive Eating, eating disorder recovery and body acceptance.
