I know the frustration of dieting.
I remember years ago laying in bed at night feeling full of frustration, sadness, and shame that even though I had two degrees in nutrition, I struggled to stay consistent with my healthy eating plan.

Healthy eating didn't feel like the effortless lifestyle I craved. It felt like war.

Every morning I would wake up full of motivation. 

"I'm doing it this time. I'm never looking back."

But around 3pm my food cravings slowly started to creep in. No matter how much motivation I had, it felt like something else was controlling my food choices. 

I felt full of shame and disappointment with my own ability stick to my plan. I fearfully wondered, "If sticking to a plan is hard for me.... how can I help anyone else?"

I became determined to figure out that question. 

I attended the best nutrition conferences in the country, read more books, and put myself on health programs that were founded in science... but no amount of health information gave me the confidence with feeling in control over my food. 

My relationship to food and lack of trust with my body continued to get worse until I began to explore how stress impacts our food choices. 

What I discovered was profound. 


"I just need more willpower."

The belief that we just need more willpower or discipline is false. This is how diets set you up to fail, make you believe that it's your lack of discipline, then keep you coming back for more. 

Once I explored the research on why food cravings get activated in our bodies, I created a technique known as The Conquering Cravings Method that allowed me to soothe my food cravings and feel like I was in control over my food. 

Today, I am proud to share that while health finally feels effortless, I also love indulging in sweets and treats without feeling shame, guilt, or needing to overeat. By creating trust with my body and making peace with my food, I am now able to enjoy food without restriction and feel healthier in my body than I ever have. 

My greatest joy is guiding my students in Mastering Mindfulness so they too can create more trust, compassion, and love with their body and have freedom with their food. 

Mastering Mindfulness is not a diet program but a self discovery experience to learn why you do what you do to feel more confident with your food - without a diet or more willpower.

Meet a Few of our Students!
They are full of wisdom and proof that you can do it too.

Conner

"I knew everything I was supposed to be doing but I never could do it. I was trying to use willpower. We shifted it from a place of self love. It’s so much more powerful and easier to maintain."

Terry

“My blood pressure is the lowest it’s ever been since I was 18 years old. I’m not even doing anything. I’ve settled into a peaceful existence with food.  It’s great.”

Kathleen

"Connecting with your nervous system is a key element. When the heart, emotions, and brain are all aligned, you are in charge of your body."

Ray

"I’ve walked away with a better awareness of myself. I feel stronger and more secure and in control than I’ve ever been."

Cannon

"If you’re going to try to eat perfect and you don’t, it breaks self trust. This whole process has been learning how to trust myself."

Nicole

“Before I started I was living a lot more mindlessly. I was living in a lot of hopelessness and despair. This fear of I don’t know if I have the capacity to change. It’s a scary place to sit in when you don’t believe in yourself…
It’s been the tiny changes that made the big shift. I’m so proud of myself for starting the program and believing I’m worth it.”

Leonita

"To lose weight I would always diet, eat low calorie, and exercise. Then life would come up and I would go back to where I was. It was always a cycle for me. 
Now, when a craving comes up I dig into, "What do I really need? I am so much more relaxed instead of going straight into the pantry."

Mandy 

"Mastering Mindfulness is the game changer I’ve been searching for. 

I’ve shed 39 pounds, developed coping mechanisms for dealing with anxiety and stress that reduced reliance on medication, and realized there are basic things I can implement that have a huge positive impact."

"But I don't trust my body!"

Of course you don't! Diet culture has taught us how to eat with your mind by counting calories and using rules, which creates a disconnection from your body. Our students come into the program feeling disconnected from and not trusting their body and food. Just like any relationship with poor communication, we slowly and gently work on rebuilding the relationship. Finding trust within themselves is one of the most empowering aspects that our students love to discover. 

"I'm not sure if I'm ready to give up my overeating and comfort foods."

No need to worry, the beautiful part about this program is that you get to be in control. The purpose is not to restrict what you eat but teach you how to connect to your body so you are always in choice instead of being controlled by food. Our students find that once they learn the techniques to calm their nervous system and tune into their body, the need to overeat naturally disappates on its own.
