Do You Want a Better Relationship With Food?
Seven years ago, I sure did!
Because, for decades, I secretly battled a brutal eating disorder. In fact, most of my 20s, 30s, and into my mid 40s were wrought with one food disaster after another.
I've only been clean since May 9, 2013, so freedom is a pretty recent phenomenon. But the shame is mostly gone, so I can finally go public and help others heal from eating disorders and other addictions.
In order to really help others over and above my own experience, I received my certification in Transformational Addiction Recovery Coaching through Being True To You in 2015 and have never looked back. Helping others heal their relationships with food and their bodies is truly my passion and purpose.
And I promise you, your relationship with food CAN be healed.
Are you ready to break up with bulimia and related addictions, for real?
Has your long love affair with the addiction cycle finally run its course, but quitting has been impossible?
Or do you simply not know where to turn?
Rather than Rehab, my latest book, can help.
It takes you through a series of strategies to help release behaviors and create a life you love living.
And if you need a closer strategy and accountability partner, through private, one-on-one coaching, I help you finally kiss bulimia lovingly goodbye.
Who Am I?
I'm simply a sensitive soul who has finally broken free from the addiction cycle. Now, life is full of creative endeavors, service, coaching, hiking the trails near our homes in Vancouver and Phoenix, or completing higher altitude treks abroad.
Writing is also a passion. Well, maybe not a passion, but a vehicle this ambivert uses to get my inherently shy brain's ideas on paper. Miraculously, I've had the pleasure of publishing two kids books ("Bumbles...saves Naipoki!" and "Bumbles...finds her way home!") and three adult non-fiction books ("The Soul of Success" with Jack Canfield and my own books, "Safe Souls: Transforming Relationships Through the Power of Kind, Clean & Clear Communication" and "Rather than Rehab: Quit Bulimia & Upgrade Your Life.")
I love quilting, Kundalini yoga, reading, skiing, motor-biking, contemporary architecture, horses, and snuggling with my husband and three rescue dogs, Milo, Tessa, and Lulu.
Oh, and of course, Netflix. ;)
Can You Relate to My Philosophy?
I believe that those struggling with addiction are not bad people.
We are not people with no resolve, no will-power, and no character. We are simply highly sensitive people trying to survive. And our addictions helped us ... until they didn't.
Then we sought a better way.
My guess is that you are a wildly intelligent, successful, courageous person. You have huge dreams and amazing aspirations. You don't flat-line life. You are an explorer. You are a risk taker.
Yes, sometimes those risks have led to chaos. But it's through the recovery journey that you will eventually find peace and meet your true self.
It may not feel like it, but you are in the perfect place of discovery as you dive into REALLY living ... living without your band-aid of bulimia and other addictions.
Freedom is your birthright.
I have less than zero judgment around what you have or have not done with food.
My heart is with you.
I understand the daily struggle.
I know what it's like to wake up every ... single ... day saying, "This is the day I will not do it!" Only to fall on my face at breakfast.
But recovery IS possible, and I'm here to help you get there.
