General FAQs

I’ve tried so many diets already. Will this one work for me?

Luckily Intuitive Eating is not a diet! It is an entirely different approach to health and eating which focuses on ditching the diet mentality so you can make peace with food and your body.

Will I lose weight?

Many of my clients are at odds with their body and are looking for a new way to lose weight. However, in order to help you become an intuitive eater, we have to put weight loss on the backburner. In fact, many of my clients feel relieved to not focus on weight for the first time in their lives. By exploring your relationship to food and attune you to your body’s signals you’ll shift to intuitive nourishment and your weight might change. But this is not the focus of our work. Through the journey of intuitive eating you will heal your mind from the diet mentality, your body from the trauma of diets, and your weight will find its’ “True north”.

“I heard that I can eat whatever and as much as I want on this program. That sounds like a recipe for binge eating and weight gain!”

This is one of the biggest concerns I hear. Interestingly enough, our restrictive diet thinking is much more of a trigger for overeating. Even science is showing this. But once you’ve made peace with all foods and know how to listen to your body’s feelings of hunger, fullness, and satisfaction your food choices and eating patterns will normalize and “off limit” foods will lose their appeal.

How long is this going to take?

Everybody's process is different. It depends on your personal history of dieting and “un-intuitive” eating. Some of us have a lot of diet mentality to let go off and others need to re-learn to connect with their body, it’s signals, and their true needs. While this sounds like a lot to do it is meaningful work and will get you off the diet roller coaster for good. My packages are designed to meet you where you are at and help you build habits that nourish while shedding those which don’t.

I’m new to Intuitive Eating, is this the right program for me?

Absolutely! This program offers both an introduction and deeper exploration of intuitive eating. You’ll learn what each principle is about and complete home practices between sessions to integrate this new approach into your life.

I have read about Intuitive eating and done some of the practices here and there. Can I still join and benefit from this program?

Yes. This Immersion Group Program can help reconnect you with this approach, deepen your practices and self reflections while offering a safe place to heal diet/food/body image issues with a group of fellow diet-culture dropouts. In fact, your experience with some aspects of this approach would be beneficial to the rest of the group and I’d encourage you to share all you have learned.

Do I have to talk during the group sessions?

I know it might feel intimidating at first to share your experiences about weight and food struggles with strangers. However, I create a safe environment for everyone to feel at ease. The sharing and group discussions are actually my participants’ favorite part of the program and provide a meaningful space to heal our collective trauma from diet culture. However, I won’t put anyone on the spot and everyone can contribute in their own way:) If you do not want to interact at all you might find my one on one sessions a good option.


I am very busy and might not be able to join all the time or do the practices. Is that ok?


To get them most out of this immersion I do encourage participants to join at a time when life allows them to, well, fully immerse in this program. Joining each session and completing the workbook chapters and other practices is not only key to your own transformation but will also help create our safe bubble, while supporting and inspiring the healing of our group participants.


What if I miss a session? 

Recordings of our sessions are posted after each meeting along with clear instructions on home practices and reflections.You can also use our secure group chat to communicate with the rest of the group to share your experiences and questions or just to stay connected and support one another.



Is there a refund policy for cancellations?

Due to the small group size I do not provide refunds. However, if unforeseen events make is hard to join this group/cohort you can join the next group.



Is there a payment plan?


For this course, we don't offer a payment plan.

When will I get access to the modules?

You get access to module 1 upon sign-up. The remaining 4 modules of the Awaken Your Intuitive Eater Course become available weekly and you'll get a reminder when they unlock.

How do I get the most out of this Online course?

The real perk of this self-paced course is that you can learn at your own pace. I encourage all of my clients to take their time with each module, section, reflection, and to do the practices regularly. Many people deeply resonate with the intuitive eating approach and principles instantly, but integrating the practices into our daily lives is key! Some principles might be easy to integrate while others invite deeper reflections. Take as much time and don't "chase to the finish line".

Is this course safe for me if I have an eating disorder? 

My courses and  programs aren't appropriate for people struggling with active eating disorders. However, if you are considered in recovery discuss taking this course with your provider or have them refer you to me for Intuitive Eating coaching. I will work jointly with your provider/team to ensure a safe and supportive healing journey. If you have an active eating disorder, please see the  National Eating Disorders Association for referrals.
