What are clients saying?

AH (she/her)

"Abbey has changed my life. Even though we hadn't been working together for a long time, she made such an impact. She helped me figure out the cause of my 12 years of food trauma, and that it wasn't all my fault. She helped me overcome my shame in food. She helped me with binge eating, body image, and so many things I'm not able to list them all. We both love so many of the same things it was kind of crazy! We got along so well that I started to think of her as a friend. She helped me think about weight and weight loss in a whole new way, and I've never felt more liberated! After years of trying, she has helped me kickstart my health. I will never, ever forget her and what she's done for me."

 

CN (she/her)

"I cannot thank Abbey enough for how she has helped me change my life. When I started I was miserable due to such a toxic relationship with food and body image. I can now truthfully say that I am so much more present in life and in my relationships with others since I am no longer obsessing over everything that I’m eating and always self conscious of how I look!"

LA (she/her)

"Working with Abbey has literally changed my life, and my perspective on food and nutrition in general! I came to her at a time in my life where I was experiencing huge changes and was dealing with a new diagnosis of IBS, and was attempting to quit nicotine. This had huge adverse affects with my digestive system. I went to a gastroenterologist, but personally experienced a very surface level solution with medication as the main solution. Abbey listened to everything I had been going through, and approached a solution very holistically. She wanted to find out what was happening and approach a solution that worked for my lifestyle.

In only 6 months I went from not being able to eat much without stomach issues, fearing any food would cause me stomach pain, to knowing my body better than ever. Abbey coached me through everything I was experiencing and helped me get to a point where I felt I could be curious about my diet instead of fearful. I would definitely recommend Abbey to anyone looking for nutritionist advice, and tell anyone I know to head to her for service. 11/10 would recommend."

 

What happens when you trust your body?

Break the cycle of generational dieting

Improved body image and self-worth

 

I WANT THIS

SH (he/him/they)

"During our sessions, Abbey eliminated all of my fears. I always wanted to quit dieting, but had no idea where or how to start. Abbey not only taught me so much about food and body image, but about myself too. She constantly believed in me, even when I didn't believe in myself. Each session led me to a life of more compassion towards myself - and it is SO freeing. I would recommend Abbey to anyone looking to stop dieting forever!"

 

DS (she/they)

"I cannot rave about working with Abbey enough! Abbey has a thorough plan for each session and is so encouraging. Before meeting Abbey, I never even thought recovery was possible. Now, I can eat past fear foods without worry of a possible binge. I have less anxiety, obsessive thoughts, and fear with food or my body. More wins to come!"

AK (she/her)

"Before starting my work with Abbey, I was struggling with binge eating and feeling so uncomfortable in my body. I have a larger body and always thought I needed to lose weight to have a healthy relationship with food. Now I'm eating foods that were banned and not binging. I always felt like Abbey truly cared, something I haven't felt before in working with other providers."

ZA (she/her)

"I'm a full time college student and work part time. Prior to working with Abbey, I had no idea the stress I had put on my body image and relationship with food. I just knew I wanted to stop thinking so much about my body.  Throughout many sessions of me being sick or anxious, Abbey was always very encouraging and held no judgement. Just a few weeks into working with Abbey, I could already notice positive shifts in my thoughts with food and body. Investing in these sessions seem so small, when reaping the physical and mental reward of it all. Today, I can honestly say that I'm free from guilt with food and have reached body neutrality!"

RJ (she/her)

"Working with Abbey completely transformed my body image! I was so nervous to start and, honestly, wasn't sure if it was the right fit for me. After our first 2 sessions, I already felt changes! Now, a few short months later, I am able to accept and appreciate my body. All of this seem impossible for me before meeting Abbey."
