Marie believes that the body is as important to include in the treatment and healing process as is the mind. Relationship with food affects mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Marie works with her clients to resolve food-related issues, improve self-esteem, and identify strengths while learning ways to practice a more balanced lifestyle.
With over 25 years of experience, Marie understands that the basis of eating disorders lies in identifying the onset of any emotional experience that may have contributed to the onset of this category of disorders. Marie specifically works with clients to recognize the triggers (food triggers and emotional triggers), and then to desensitize the negative beliefs that surround body image. Marie also works with clients to incorporate nutritional response testing in efforts to discover any allergies, explore supplementation options, and to formulate a specific plan of what to add to the body as to allow functioning at its highest potential.
