about Roni

This is the REAL journey toward shedding your own negative stories so you can shed the weight. I lived it myself and have walked alongside many clients as they traveled the journey themselves.

I look forward to guiding you on your expedition toward love and acceptance.

I went on my first diet in my teens. This was followed by two decades of hating myself as I slowly gained more and more weight and felt horrible whenever I ate something "bad." 

 

I starved myself, over-exercised, and finally lost the weight. Still unhappy, I hired a trainer who introduced me to “clean eating." Within four days, I had my first binge, and within eight months, I was sitting in a therapist's office as he told me I was bulimic. 

I became a trainer myself - an award-winning trainer and nutrition & wellness coach for over 8 years. I also started competing in figure (a division of bodybuilding) and became a nationally qualified champion figure athlete.


All in attempt to build a perfect body, so I could be happy and learn to love my body.

None of it ever worked, and the eating disorder almost killed me. 

I eventually found Louise Hay’s book, You Can Heal Your Life. I realized the weight and food issues had nothing to do with weight and food. I had been abusing my body with years of bingeing, overly restrictive diets, over-exercise because I didn't value or my body. And I didn't value myself because of negative stories I was continuously repeating to myself that connected my weight to my self-worth.

As I learned to trust myself, connect with my body, and feel rather than numb emotions, I allowed myself permission, acceptance, compassion, kindness, and curiosity. I meditated and practiced mindfulness. I stayed away from the scale and anything that was part of my “old” way of living and thinking. I became more comfortable with the “me” in the present, and, as I did, the painful stories began to fade.

And then, one day, I noticed I wasn't bingeing anymore and was no longer controlled by food. The war zone in my head had been replaced with the kindness and peace I'd been searching for all my life. 

This is the REAL journey toward shedding your own negative stories so you can shed the weight. I lived it myself and have walked alongside many clients as they traveled the journey themselves.

I look forward to guiding you on your expedition toward love and acceptance.

It’s so worth it. And so are you.

All love,

Roni

NOTE: While counselors or therapists often use CBT to deal with mental illness or a patient’s mental/emotional conditions and/or processing trauma, MBCT & cognitive eating does not. My roll as an MBCT & cognitive eating coach, in its most simple form, is to encourage, coach and/or act as a facilitator of a client’s self-reflection, decision making, planning for the future, and creating life changes. As an MBCT & cognitive eating coach, I am obligated to refer clients in need of mental or physical health therapy to an appropriate licensed professional.
