What Would You Do If You Weren't Thinking About Food?
Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I am a recovering chronic dieter.
The quote I put in my high school yearbook said:
"They put you in a box so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred - Hold On"
I held on for as long as I could and then,
one day, I decided to let go.
Now I coach people like me, who are stuck in a box they cannot see.
I help people feel good in their bodies using a non-diet,
weight neutral approach to food and movement based on permission,
allowance, self compassion and trust.
Together, we will explore your relationship to food and your body
so that you can re-discover your own power and sense of self worth.
Together, we will dismantle diet culture and retire old coping mechanisms
and thoughts and beliefs that are no longer serving you.
How do you want to feel in your body and in your life?
Are you ready for a bold, daring and courageous adventure?
I'm here to help you step outside the box.
I will provide you with a different lens to look at the world and
together we will redefine what success means to you.
What Does Working With Me Include?
- Deconstructing your history with food and body to identify what is and what isn't working for you.
- Helping you understand the dynamics of diet culture and see how it has impacted your life.
- Facilitating the transition to an Intuitive Eating approach to food and body.

Live Free or Diet: You have a Choice
How my coaching works:
I coach clients weekly or biweekly. Coaching sessions are on the phone, or using Zoom video calls. We can also meet in person if you live in central Connecticut. The initial session is 90 minutes and subsequent sessions are 60 minutes each.
Following each call, you will get a recap of what we discussed, recommended resources from the session and goals to focus on for the coming week. Email support is also available at times during the process, as needed.
You are also welcome to join my private Facebook group for more support from myself and the other women interested in doing this work.
Fees: $200 (USD) a month for biweekly calls and $400 (USD) a month for weekly calls.
I also offer a single 90 minute Q&A session in case you aren't sure you want to commit to coaching but you want to know more about self acceptance, body positivity, Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size®, books I would recommend, the Live Free Approach or Body Trust. The fee for this is $150 (USD).

Clients who have worked with me have said:
“During our work together (Elizabeth) helped me gain insight and perspective on what was holding me back and provided me with the tools to do something about it. We mainly focused on the principles of intuitive eating and how my personal life was affecting a lot of what I was going through. I appreciated that Elizabeth always offered several different ways of going about change and recommended a wide variety of resources to supplement our meetings. I would recommend others to seek services from Elizabeth because she created a safe, trusting, educational, and supportive environment.” (Jess)
“When I started working with Elizabeth, I was torn between wanting to love my body and hating my body. I didn’t realize how much I talked negatively about my body until Elizabeth asked me to pay attention to it. I learned that I have to be nicer to myself. I learned to listen to my body more carefully. I am looking forward to digging in deeper with what has already come to the surface. I would recommend anyone who is feeling torn or hopeless with their bodies to try working with Elizabeth.” (Aileen)
