I am someone who struggled with an overeating habit for 30+ years. As a result, I tried every healthy, self-help-y thing I could find to try to fix that problem: talk therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, emotional freedom technique, meditation, mindfulness, self-compassion, hypnosis, healthy diets (and some not-so-healthy ones)…I could go on. Nothing worked, and in fact, the problem just seemed to get worse.
It was only when a friend introduced me to a field of psychology called the 3 Principles (or the inside-out understanding) that things began to change. (Finally!) What I began to learn was that my food cravings weren’t the problem I had deemed them to be; they were, in fact, part of my brilliant and innate human design and were trying to point me toward understanding that brilliance.
Seeing this changed everything. My suffering about food, and myself, was over. And now I help others to look in the same direction, discover their own built-in brilliance, and find freedom from overeating and other unwanted habits.
If you’d like to learn more about my life and my exploration of the inside-out understanding as it relates to overeating, you’ll find a summary of my approach to my work here. You can also read my book, It’s Not About the Food or listen to Episode 1 of Unbroken.
I am extremely grateful to live in a magical little fishing village on the wild west coast of British Columbia. When I’m not podcasting, creating videos and courses, or writing you’ll find me walking local trails and beaches, connecting with friends, or cozied up with a good book.
For 20 years, I’ve been writing both fiction and non-fiction books, all with the themes of love, connection, and the search for understanding. I began my writing career with an Amazon best-selling, award-winning memoir about ten years I spent in a cult in the 1990s.
