Workshop Frequently Asked Questions
+ I'd love to take the class but the time doesn't work for me, what should I do?

+ I'd love to take the class but the cost doesn't work for me, what should I do?
Great! Send me an email and I'll let you know about alternate payment options and sliding scale information.
+ Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is for people who are open and curious about exploring their relationship with food and are confused by the negative messages the world has about our bodies. Maybe you've been a chronic dieter, maybe you are often unhappy with your body, maybe you identify with the concepts of food addiction or emotional eating or maybe you know that something about your relationship with food and body feels like a challenge.
+ Would this be for me if I have an eating disorder?
If you have been clincially diagnosed with an eating disorder and are under the care of a therapist or nutritionist, this course can help support the work you are already doing with that practitioner. To be sure, feel free to email me and I am happy to discuss with you and your practitioner to make sure the course is a good fit for where you are in your healing journey at this time. You are not alone in your struggle.
+ I've never been diagnosed with an eating disorder but I know my relationship with food is stressful, would this course be for me?
Definitely! This class is all about rebuilding our relationship with food and body where you learn how to start to trust your choices and heal your anxiety when it comes to food and body. This would be a great starting point for your healing and I can also point you in the direction of other services if you feel you'd benefit from that. There are so many people who can relate to how you are feeling.
+ I'm in a bigger body and I want to lose weight for my health, would this class be right for me?
Definitely! This class will explore the link between health and weight. In addition, we know that intentional weight loss usually backfires and leads to decreased health, so instead this class will explore what kinds of behaviors to focus on when it comes to feeling good in your body and supporting your health from a weight neutral perspective. If you are open to the idea that there are other ways to care for our bodies than intentional weight loss, then this is a great course for you.
+ But I really want to learn more about Keto, detoxing and weight loss, is this a good course for me?
This is a great course for you if you are interested in exploring WHY you want to learn more about keto, detoxing and weight loss and what are some alternative ways to feel the way you want to feel without causing the harm that these practices, and many like them, are known to cause.
+ How accessible is your space?
The class will be held in the Hope Room at the Bridge Healing Arts Center in Farmington, CT. You can see a picture of the room at bridgehac.com. There are no stairs on the way to the space and the space will have plenty of armless chairs for the comfort of all bodies.
+ Is this course LGBTQIA friendly?
Absolutely! So you know where I am coming from - I am a cisgender heterosexual person who identifies as she/her/hers. I welcome bodies of all sizes, colors, shapes and genders. Please feel free to email me if you have any concerns or questions.
+ I have other questions that you have not answered here, what should I do?
Please send me an email at email@example.com and I will be happy to answer your question!
