How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become an Eating Disorder Recovery Coach?
To answer this question, it's probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting "compelling story," that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you who are struggling with toxic relationships with food, their bodies, other people, and themselves. That defining moment in my life happened in 2010.
At the time, I owned a successful business as an importer. During this time, an eating disorder showed up at my family door. My 12-year-old daughter was struggling with her weight and body image. She was suffering in silence for one or two years before being diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa.
The first treatment approach recommended by her therapist was The Maudsley approach, a family-based treatment that required me to feed my daughter at home every 3 hours to restore her weight. I had no hesitation to stay home and help my daughter recover, however, the business suffered from my absence. I restructured the business operations but eventually had to close. After seven months of trying this treatment approach my daughter's health deteriorated and she had to leave for in-patient residential treatment. The eating disorder took away my daughter's health, our family's harmony, our business, and every ounce of joy. I knew that after residential treatment I had to be physically available to take her to doctor's appointments to continue her path into recovery. To do this, I needed a more flexible career, therefore I became a real estate agent. Becoming a Realtor allowed me to have my schedule and be present for my daughter.
Deep in my soul, I felt that something was missing in my daughter's treatment. Her weight was being restored, her psychological issues were being attended, but the root cause or causes of why she developed an eating disorder were never addressed. Eating Disorder is a complex disease that affects the entire family system. As a parent and caregiver, I didn't receive the support and coping strategies to deal with the situation. This uncertainty and unease led me to continue searching and seeking alternatives until I discovered a holistic approach which allowed me to begin the healing process of my broken heart. It was then that I realized how much my love addiction to toxic partners and my unhealed childhood wounds played a significant role in my children's wellbeing. A dysfunctional and toxic family environment is not conducive to bringing up emotionally healthy children. I've been in this healing and spiritual path for ten years, studying different healing modalities and applying successfully what I've learned to my recovery and that of my family.
Even though we had come a long way as a family overcoming many challenges and restoring our health and faith, the eating disorder came back five years later, but this time affecting my other child. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with Binge Disorder. Thanks to the healing work that I had already begun I was in a better place emotionally, psychologically, and physically to be able to effectively help and support my daughter in her recovery. Anorexia Nervosa and Binge Disorder are two sides of the same coin. It was at this moment that I decided to become a Life and Recovery Coach. Toxic relationships with food, our bodies, and other people start with a toxic relationship with ourselves. Everyone is left broken in a state of despair and hopelessness not knowing what to do or how to act.
I know the pain, guilt, shame, confusion, loneliness, and anger that people go through when dealing with toxic relationships because I've been there, I understand. Healing myself and helping my daughters in their recovery has made me passionate about helping others affected by toxic relationships with food, themselves, and others. I have since committed to dedicating the rest of my life to helping others heal their emotional wounds and work deep into their heart's and soul's desire to transform their life from pain into forgiveness, hatred into love, anger into peace, doubt into faith, and despair into hope.
I have created a 90-day coaching program called 90 DAYS TO BREAK FREE™, a holistic healing and transformational coaching program for men and women who use food as a coping mechanism to deal with their stress and emotions.
A12-week Coaching Program called IMMUNIZE YOUR HEART created for people who have been affected by toxic personal relationships and emotional abuse. In this program, you'll discover how to heal your broken heart, strengthen your self-esteem, and build a healthy and loving relationship with yourself and others to lead a confident, joyous, healthy, and peaceful life.
