Do you recommend any specific addiction recovery programs?
While most addiction recovery programs offer value to those seeking to become sober or strengthen their sobriety, choosing and exploring them is a very individual experience. I support all my clients’ participation (or not) in addiction recovery programs, and believe that the Sweet Science wellness program can work as a complement to any of them.
I don’t have an issue with alcohol or drugs, but I do have a sugar, nicotine, or caffeine addiction, or some problematic eating habits. Will you work with me?
Probably! Some of my clients are not in recovery from alcohol or drug addiction but do struggle with other addictive behaviors, such as emotional eating or stress eating, reliance on food-based stimulants, or compulsive junk food intake. Contact me, I’d love to talk and see how we might work together.
How do you meet with your clients?
The majority of the time, I connect with people via video chat. However, if you live in the San Francisco Bay area, I would love to meet you in person for our first session and for any follow-up sessions you’d like.
Do you teach a particular diet: raw, vegan, paleo, etc?
I do not subscribe to any specific diet and do not teach any one way of eating to my clients. Generally speaking, I believe diets that best support optimal health are: organic, mainly plant-based, consist largely of whole foods, and grown as locally as possible. What’s more important than any particular food characteristics is that together, you and I find a way of eating that supports your lifestyle and health goals, is easy for you to maintain, tastes delicious, and keeps you feeling satisfied.
Will I be able to maintain the way of eating and the lifestyle habits I developed in the Sweet Science program after we part ways?
The foundation of good health is the formation of good habits, skills, and knowledge that work together over time to bring ease, joy, and freedom into your life. A foundation that truly works is one you will keep coming back to, and that will feel like the opposite of adhering to a meal plan.
In our work together, we will explore your idea of optimal health, set goals, then work on creating your foundation using the Sweet Science 5. Increasingly, as you practice and revise new habits for yourself, the knowledge and skills you gain will begin to feel like second nature.
