Weight Loss & Self-Transformation

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am,

then I can change." - Carl Rogers

I've been there.

That's me in the picture on the right, a few years back.

Yep. I've been there.

Twice in my life I've gotten to over 300 pounds, with high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, and sleep problems.

And I just felt like crap. Heavy breathing, constantly throwing my back out, continually feeling overexerted just for doing "normal" things...and ashamed.

And guess what I'd do when I felt bad? Eat more.

Sound familiar?

So yeah, I get it.

I know how frustrating it can be to try to "fix it" with diets and exercise....only to feel defeated over and over again, exhausted and hopeless.

Accepting and addressing the underlying issues

After years of struggle, programs and experimentation, I finally realized what kept me heavy and in unhealthy behavior patterns: my underlying, unresolved psychological issues...the long-ignored wounds of the soul.

That's why I offer therapy focused on addressing these underlying issues, so you can make change that truly lasts for the rest of your life.

Ironically, a key to change is to first fully yourself as you are. As Carl Rogers, founder of modern therapy said, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I can change."

When we no longer run away from the real issues that are there, but accept them, then we can work with them. And then we can truly transform.

Ready for lasting change?

I'm not saying it's easy. It takes extreme courage to fully accept and face ourselves and the real reasons we stay unhealthy.

However, I am a walking example that it is well worth to do so. (That's me this year, on the left.)

It feels so damn good to easily able to do all the things I wanted to do with my body for so long, such as having really hot sex or doing yoga. Not to mention the confidence and increased energy I had for all others areas of my life as well.

I've found that it's much easier to live out my soul's purpose if my vehicle - my body - is lean and lively. And the inner work and lessons along the way weren't just obstacles to be overcame and forgotten; they were life-shifting teachers.

Actually, the journey of weight loss feels as if it has been my greatest teacher in this lifetime; nothing else (except intimate relationships, which is also why I love doing couples therapy) has taught me more about about myself and the process of change.

If you share weight loss as a struggle and you'd like to get serious and change, I would LOVE to support in a way that I wish someone had for me.

Yes, the hardest things in life are our biggest teachers.

If weight loss is similarly one of your greatest struggles, and you'd like to get serious and change, I would LOVE to support in a way that I wish someone had for me.
