Entrepreneur, #1 Best-Selling author, mom and motivational speaker
I created Find Body Freedom (formerly BodySense) in 1992, after decades of my own personal struggles with weight, eating and body image - and after trying every diet known to womankind.
I invite you to join me on this journey to discover your body's innate wisdom, your style of eating, and your natural weight.
For twenty-five years, I practiced as a clinical social worker in both New York and Massachusetts. I worked primarily with women who were struggling with issues similar to mine, and who believed, as I naively did, that if they would change their bodies they could change their lives. They came to me with feelings of depression, anxiety, and relationship challenges. They came to me with unresolved past and present traumas. And they hoped that if they could change their bodies, all of these things would magically disappear or at least become less significant. They were wrong - and so was I!
What does change our lives, and it changed mine, is a belief in the body's innate wisdom, a commitment to self-care, and a shift from transforming the size of our bodies, to a focus on health and well-being.
As a life coach, I believe I can help you. And yes, you can love the body you're in!
I'm here to help you learn to love (okay, like) your body, to eat with joy, while pursuing your passion and purpose.
