“The worksheets and group exercises really helped me get at my core beliefs and helped me understand my emotions. Rachel is a master at listening and helping us understand complex emotions and situations. Sharing my stories out loud with others in a safe environment was very helpful.”
“The group discussions were the most helpful aspect of this experience. It was really nice to hear others perspectives.”
“Actually being in a group and hearing others with the same issues is very powerful. It’s much more helpful than listening to myself for an hour. I learned so much from the other members. This is a group I trust and I’m committed to the changes.”
“It has been so helpful to realize that this is about so much more than my body. Experiencing others (with a variety of body types) struggling with the same issues as me was so helpful.”
“Rachel has a tremendous gift for being compassionate and empathetic, while at the same time challenging participants to look at the issues. Just what I needed! Thank you.”
“Hearing common struggles and recognizing patterns was helpful. The supplemental workbook provided the most useful work for me to make changes.”
“Hearing others opinions and feelings were very helpful. The additional workbook took the information to a much deeper level and added greatly to the process. Rachel was so observational and intuitive! Her comments were always helpful and insightful.”
“The skills I’ve learned in the group I’ve applied to many areas of my life – in my hobbies, activities, and finding joy in movement. It’s bearing so much fruit in my life. I’ve continued to use the tools to help me through the holidays and it’s been so helpful to me. Thank you for investing so much in helping me through this.”
“It was helpful to learn ways of letting go of things that aren’t working for me and how to give myself permission to take time for myself.”
“Loved the group process! I learned from everyone’s comments and experiences. Very well organized.”
“Loved the group, needed it. It was so helpful.”
“Excellent experience. Really appreciated the thought provoking group discussions. If you’re considering the group, please take the plunge and give it a try. It’s uncomfortable at times, but so worth the time.”
“I’ve been in pain nearly my entire life because of my struggle with food and the experiences and emotions that led me to abuse it. Being overweight and turning to food to soothe myself have colored every aspect of my life: how I handled my relationships with people, my choices of friends and lovers, career choices, how I dressed, the homes I’ve had and the condition in which I kept them, what I thought of myself as a person, my expectations of others…just everything. The more I think about it the sadder I feel. But, it’s a sadness for what was, not for what has to be my future. I don’t have the right words to thank you for offering a program that relieved me of that struggle. Just know that I am truly grateful.
The changes I’ve experienced since starting the group have freed me to direct my attention toward other changes that have to be made in my life. Because of you and the group I feel stronger and safer than I ever recall feeling before.”
I became less critical of my weight, happier about shopping for clothes, and now make sure to have the right food available in the house.
I started a new exercise routine! Very positive experience.
Rachel was able to help me learn so much about myself. It’s clear she knows a lot about food addiction. I’ve learned to begin loving myself the way I am. I’m trying to enjoy my life now that my weight doesn’t matter. I now believe I’m worthy of love from the opposite sex.
I increased my positive self-talk. I’m now able to identify my triggers and am able to help myself when triggered. I’ve been able to ask myself when I’m hungry and identify what I want versus just eating something.
Loved the group! I could relate to some more than others, but all the topics/discussions were really helpful. Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable and sensitive to individual needs. I no longer feel alone in my struggle with food and am starting to trust and appreciate my body. I’m also more mindful!
