Meal & Shopping Experiences
This unique offering can be included as part of an Eating Disorder Recovery Session or booked separately as a standalone experience.
For individuals struggling with eating disorders, shopping for clothing or enjoying a meal at a restaurant can often trigger high levels of anxiety and dysregulation. The presence of the eating disorder voice can be overpowering during these times, leading to dysfunctional behaviors and overwhelming discomfort. However, with the support of a trained coaching professional by your side, you can gradually overcome these challenges and engage in experiences that may have previously felt too difficult to attempt.
As your coach, I will join you during these highly stressful moments and provide guidance and assistance that may not be offered by dietitians or therapists in an outpatient setting. My ultimate goal is for you to experience complete freedom and self-empowerment in these situations, regardless of the environment or circumstances. I will be there every step of the way, offering support and helping you navigate through any obstacles you may encounter.
Fee: Client pays regular session costs for a meal and/or shopping experience
*Client pays for purchases such as meals, groceries, and clothing separately
*Payment is required before the Meal/Shopping Experience.
Both talking and meal support sessions are typically 60 minutes in length. However, 90-minute or even 2-hour sessions are also available.
Sessions are typically on a weekly basis but this can be tailored to your needs and, if relevant, recommendations from your treatment team, therapist or dietitian.
The focus of each session will be individualized and based on your goals, as well as collaboration with any treatment team members you may have.
I work with clients locally (Maui, Hawaii) in person and am available globally via video conferencing.
Prices are in USD.
Payment is required before each session.
