Work With Me
There are several ways to work with me: private coaching, group programs, and corporate wellness programs. However we work together, I always take the approach that it’s not about looking a particular way or being a certain number on a scale. Instead, it’s about making sure that you feel as comfortable and empowered around food as you feel in the other areas of your life — and stopping the cycle of emotional eating and yo-yo dieting for good.
Food Empowerment — Not a Diet
What You Can Expect
My method ﬂips the food diet dynamic entirely. It puts you back in control, once and for all.
How is it diﬀerent from dieting?
Because together, you and I take a long and deep look at not only the destructive ideas, beliefs, and habits that have evolved in your life around food, but also the science that is found in the cycles that keep you there.
Together, we uncover your triggers, habit loops, and the other things that keep you stuck, then work to develop new ways of thinking and behaving that are more empowering and desirable.
We also will “ﬁll the knowledge gaps.” For example, you let me know what you want to learn:
- Is it how to prepare delicious, nutrient dense meals?
- Or is it, how to enjoy eating out and participating in social events without worrying about what to eat or wear?
- Or is it how to manage food sensitivities and/or allergies and still feel empowered?
Recognizing the Vicious Cycles of Emotional Eating
Getting out of the emotional eating cycle is important, but it’s really difficult to do it on your own. (I know exactly how hard it can be!) But you can have a guide on the side who supports you every step of the way. When you work with me, you’ll quickly understand that there’s much more going on than a lack of willpower or an inability to just try harder—it is something much more.
Make no mistake, there IS hope. Together, we’ll help you learn and understand these cycles and how to get OUT of them once and for all.
Our work together will be focused on uncovering what holds you back and then working to identify what will assist you in finally breaking free of these cycles. We apply my four-pronged approach — the 4 Pillars of Food Empowerment — so that you can begin to feel as empowered around food as you do in the other areas of your life and career!
The Three Phases of Food Empowerment
The ongoing “Empowered Lifestyle” phase. This phase is the continuous discovery and growth which leads to deeper understanding when you are continually applying “empowered action” to your daily life. Your confidence continues to increase as you develop a deeper proficiency around food empowerment.
Introducing the 4 Pillars of Food Empowerment
One of the major goals of food empowerment is to build a better relationship with food and stop using food to manage feelings and emotions. The four pillars represent the body of work around making lasting change. There are approaches, strategies, and tools that will be put to use in each pillar.
Together, we’ll work these four pillars to make the small, incremental changes that exponentially make big, positive changes that will help heal your relationship with food. I know, with the right support, you can begin to shift things in a brand new way.
I have been a life-long weight watcher and although I successfully lost weight, I always gained it back. Marcie’s approach is not about counting points or calories; it is about nourishing your mind and body and empowering you to make choices that are right for that moment in time and understanding what you really need (that might not be food). I have never had anyone approach eating in this way! I am an emotional eater and this has been so good for me.
I am very thankful for having Marcie in my life. I no longer have the feeling of despair and I’m not afraid of food anymore. I understand I may have a slip but that doesn’t mean it is going to bring me back to that place where I felt out of control.
