"I sought Nicole's help with intuitive eating during 2013. I had always been a normal weight, active person, but dissatisfied and thinking since age 12 that losing weight would make me happier. I worked with Nicole for about 4 months on a weekly basis. She helped me to break free from decades of dieting/weight loss mentality. I stopped counting calories and weighing myself. Instead, she taught me to pay attention to my hunger, satisfaction, and energy levels. Without giving me a strict meal plan, she gave me ideas for balanced, fulfilling meals and snacks based on what I liked to eat. I learned to eat more throughout the day so I wouldn't end up binging. To my surprise, the less control I tried to exert over my intake, exercise and weight, the easier it became to feel stable and healthy. Before working with Nicole, it had been years since I had been able to "skip" a workout or order what I wanted at a restaurant without guilt and anxiety. She helped me give myself permission to respect my body. Nicole is an excellent listener with good clinical judgment. She gave me very sound advice that was both firm and compassionate. I am pleased to report that I have not gone back to dieting since working with her."
