I am so fortunate to have connected with Heather. Having been a lifelong dieter, I have developed some incredibly unhealthy and self sabotaging behaviors. Learning to make connections between what I believe about myself and the behaviors that result from this belief system has been life changing. The process of discovering how to navigate how I handle my emotions has had a profound effect on my relationship with food. Learning to ditch crash diets which only move us further away from that intuitive part of ourselves that wants to be healthy has been the game changer for me. I am still learning what that means for myself and I know that this journey is one of discovery, not one of food restriction and negative self talk. Learning how to make healthy choices because I care about myself, not because I don’t like who I am and want to change sounds so simple yet it can be very hard when we don’t have the tools to do so. Heather has given me these tools, and I am forever grateful that I contacted her for the help that I truly needed. Learning to care for my body with nurturing foods that are as healing as they are delicious has allowed me to make this a way of life as opposed to a temporary means to a temporary end. Heather is as knowledgeable as she is kind and caring.
I have struggled with overeating since I was a young child. My journey has been ongoing. I have had many teachers/supporters/guiders. All help has been cumulative and quite honestly frustrating until I was blessed to meet Heather. I began with individual coaching sessions and moved onto a group environment. She is smart, compassionate and fun...and funny. She gets me. She gets my resistance and gently guides me through. NOW, with her unwavering support, I have come to learn how to own my feelings and let them be rather than over eat them. I have not had this much consistent freedom from overeating or sugar consumption ever. The wonderful "ahhh" feeling of just being and learning to love myself no matter what is indescribable
Heather has such a special gift in how she is able to relate to young girls. She began working with my 13 yr old daughter after we moved across country and she started a new school. All of those stressors caused increased anxiety and irritability. Heather worked with her to teach her to understand what she's feeling (physically, energetically and emotionally), how to communicate more effectively and give her tools to regulate herself to manage the anxiety. Heather also helped my daughter learn how to have a serious discussion with me without getting elevated. Understanding how to use her words to say what she means in a way that allows for more open and honest communication. The relationship and trust that has developed between Heather and my daughter is priceless and my daughter even asks me to set up zoom calls with Heather so she can check in with her. I'm so grateful to have the support of such an intelligent, compassionate, soulful woman to help guide my daughter.
