FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This is for anyone (all sizes, all genders) who has struggled with body image and/or eating, and would like to focus their energy elsewhere.
Do any of these resonate with you?
You're a badass warrior by day and body worrier by night
You analyze your reflection and all photos for your "problem areas"
You have tried new diets, wellness initiatives, and cleanses with the hope of losing weight
You feel tired of trying new diets and losing weight just to gain it back again
You sometimes feel scared that you're eating wrong and are often preoccupied by food
You don't like your body but as an empowered feminist you feel like you're supposed to love it, so you pretend and suffer secretly
The idea of loving or even accepting your body as is seems impossible
You're curious to explore health from a weight-neutral perspective
You feel like you don't have time to deal with food and body stuff because you're too busy raising kids, fighting climate change, ending racialized violence, electing progressive leaders, making art, running a business, building community... but a part of you wishes something could change
If any of those resonate with you, reach out for a free intro session so we can determine if this is a good fit.
Imagine what it would be like if you woke up tomorrow and felt at peace in your body.
Note that if you are struggling with an active eating disorder, coaching is not a substitute for medical intervention.

You just need a good phone or wifi connection.
DO YOU ONLY COACH ON BODY LIBERATION AND FOOD?
Nope! I am available to coach on any subject you want to work on. Some of the other topics I coach on include:
life transitions (learn more here)
finding romantic partnership
making new friends
reconnecting to creativity
finding one's role in social change work
finding one's role in climate justice work
anything else you can dream of
WHAT IS THE I HAVE A BODY! PROGRAM?
I Have a Body! is a cohort-based model for learning the tools of body liberation. It is best experienced when paired with private coaching. Learn more and found out when the next I Have a Body! cohort will begin here.
BUT ISN'T LIFE COACHING JUST A WOO WOO THING RICH/WHITE/CELEBRITIES DO?
The first time I heard about life coaching was when Paris Geller hired Terrance as her life coach on Gilmore Girls. Suffice to say, this was NOT the moment that made me want to become a coach! Fortunately, coaching is not just weird men telling you what to do. Coaching is about a space that's all for you, where someone listens to you deeply, cheers for you loudly, and helps you create your own structures for taking leaps bigger than you ever felt possible.
HOW OFTEN DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Clients typically choose to meet every other week, though it varies.
Sessions last for about 45-50 minutes.
WHAT IF THIS COACHING ISN'T FOR ME?
If my style is not the right fit for you, you are welcome to end coaching at any time. I am also happy to make recommendations of other coaches.
