I specialize in helping people overcome emotional eating and other unwanted behaviors. You should consider contacting me if you feel that these behaviors have gotten out of control and you feel unable to regain that control - despite knowing exactly what you need to do to change. My approach begins with helping you understand how emotional eating is your way of coping with life's demands. In short, it's a way of allowing yourself to let go, at least in this one area of your life.
I can help you to learn more effective ways of coping with stressful experiences by using healthy coping strategies. By regaining a true sense of control in your life, you'll feel less need to occasionally abandon restraint and will be able to adopt a more sensible approach to eating.
