Stop Managing Symptoms

If you’re struggling with weight, battling disordered or emotional eating, trying to create healthy goals and habits, or simply looking for guidance on how to enrich your life with more nourishing choices, you’re in the right place.

What if your hunger isn’t for food at all? And what if all of these symptoms are here to call you back to the truth of who you really are?

It’s time for real, lasting healing when it comes to your relationship with food.

My Approach

Nourishment comes not only in the form of the food we eat, but it encompasses ALL that sustains the development of our body, our mind and our spirit.  Every conscious and purposeful step we take toward our own authentic nourishment creates a new pattern that supports our vibrance, joy and very best health. It is so much more than eating to live; it is enriching, enlivening and enabling us to become our most vibrant self.
Our power comes from our ability to choose.

“My experience with Margaret has been nothing short of incredible.

This is not about restrictive food rules or rapid change. I have been in therapy on and off for 20 years and this work is the single most helpful thing I have done for myself and for making lasting change.”
