trauma-informed intuitive eating & nutrition counselling for disordered eating and weight concerns

 you imagine achieving your dreams, like snagging that sweet job promotion, landing a book deal, traveling to a tropical destination, crushing it with your creative biz, getting a hot date, or starting a family.

heck, maybe you just want to go about your day without the constant food and body noise.

...there's just one problem. 

you feel like whatever you do, you just can't get it together with food. 

here's the tea: if you've tried run-of the mill meal plans, multiple food rules, 12-step programs, and "eat in moderation" and nothing's worked, you're not alone. maybe you've been in and out of eating disorder treatment centres for years, if you've even been able to access help. 

what makes me different? i use a three-pronged approach:
Intuitive eating/nutrition counselling.
body image work.
nervous system (somatic) regulation. 











I get it.

food and trauma (or difficult past experiences) are deeply connected.

It's not just about the physical aspect of what you eat, but also the emotional and psychological relationship you have with food. Your experiences with trauma, whether it's related to food, your body, your environment, and/or your past, can have a profound impact on how you view and interact with your plate.

to help you feel safe with food.

My mission?

 Controlling your food and exercise habits can serve as a way to suppress difficult emotions and provide a temporary sense of relief, especially when life feels overwhelming.

You might find that restriction or an empty stomach feels powerful or comforting.

On the other hand, the sensation of fullness can trigger emotional eating or binge eating, as the discomfort may feel reminiscent of a threat that you've experienced in the past.

I want you to know three things: this is totally understandable. You're not alone. And it doesn't have to continue this way.

why hello there.

I’m Sarah (She/Her)
nutrition therapist, author, and founder of feel safe with food

I'm an anti-diet Registered Holistic Nutritionist®, Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor, and Somatic Experiencing® Student (Intermediate level) in private practice since 2014. To specialize in eating concerns, I completed multiple body image and eating disorder trainings, 100+ hours of my own therapy, and 150+ hours of professional supervision. My orientation is anti-oppressive, weight-inclusive, and collaborative, and I use a combination of therapy models and approaches in my practice to help you to have an easy relationship with food. I'm an approved NEDIC service provider.

I also struggled with disordered eating, negative body image, and over-exercise for 15 years. I understand first-hand what it's like to hate your body and obsess over food. I knew I needed a more embodied approach to fully make peace with food and my body...which brought me to trauma-integrated (somatic) nutrition work.

YOU CAN ENJOY IT ALL.

Diets aren’t sustainable over the long term, but so many of us don’t know how to eat without food rules to follow. By exploring the many reasons we can’t kick dieting — such as the desire for weight loss, improved health outcomes, or social bonding — you can call off the search for The Secret (hot tip: there isn’t one) and eat according to the wisdom of your body.

ready to work with me?

IT's time to stop the cycle.

If you're ready for a peaceful relationship with food and your body so that you can move on with your life, let's talk.
