For the vast majority of people, diets simply do not work over the long term. Beyond Dieting® explores this issue. If you are a person who has struggled with dieting and weight control, Beyond Dieting® may help you in making peace with food and the bathroom scale.

Beyond Dieting® focuses on the experience of repeat dieting and resultant weight preoccupation. Increased awareness and discussion will help individuals come to terms with their own dieting issues. This is NOT a diet or weight loss program! Healthy lifestyle choices are discussed and encouraged.

She is a "solutions focused therapist" and certified hypno therapist as well.
