My Food Philosophy

I provide services for everyone around the United States through telehealth, virtual counseling platforms. My approach focuses on the concepts of Intuitive (Mindful) Eating and a Health At Every Size perspective. My goal is to help clients identify destructive, problematic eating habits and develop normalized eating behaviors. For some individuals (those who overeat, binge or yo-yo diet) this could translate to weight loss. However, for others who restrict, this could mean learning to accept your body at it's natural size. We will work on learning what "normal" eating looks like, as well as learning strategies for loving your body and yourself more. My philosophy is a NON DIET approach, free of stressful time lines and learning to incorporate ALL foods in moderation.     ~ Amber

We will work on:

- Learning to love all foods (decreasing good and bad food rules).
- Normalizing eating behaviors through intuitive and mindful eating strategies.
- Reducing or eliminating restrictive food habits (counting calories/points, etc.)
- Shifting focus from weight loss to size acceptance.
- Identifying ways to love yourself without abusing food (overeating, binging).
- Incorporating movement that is pleasurable, rather than rigid or structured.
- Shattering media myths about "thinspiration," diets and cleanses.
- Improving self-esteem and confidence.
