Before stepping out into private practice I used to dream of the projects I'd have more time/flexibility to work on. This year not only allowed me to jump into doing the work I love full-time but also crossing an item off of my work bucket list - collaborating with one of my best friends in the entire world on a course! Heather Yassick, MS, LMHC, RYT-200 is a unicorn personified and it really was a lot of fun being able to collaborate and combine our areas of expertise. I've put the highlights of what you'll get out of this labor of love below. For real though - we spent hours on this for you and wanted to provide it at a super reasonable price to provide access to this information.

Top Five Tips for a Positive Food Experience this Holiday!
Here are some of my top tips for having a positive experience with food this holiday season. Shhhh don't tell Heather I shared this with you!! Want more? Scroll back up and sign up for the course!
1. Put things on a plate! - Visual cues will help you connect with what you’re eating
2. Lean into your senses as you’re able (sight, smell, taste) - Not only is it a way to connect with food, it’s one of those mindfulness activities
3. Limit distractions as possible - Distractions can...well...distract you from knowing if you’re hungry/full or even enjoying what you’re eating
4. “Time” yourself - Not actually timing yourself, but pacing yourself, i.e. trying to slow down if you’re a fast eater
5. Alcohol - Disconnects you from interoceptive awareness (or inaccurately shifts this). Eat before drinking and decide what you want your alcohol experience to be!
