What People Say
Your gifts as a teacher and facilitator
are remarkable. You created an atmosphere of safety, you offered
yourself in a compassionate and open way and your humor and authenticity
were a god send.
"A much needed
therapeutic companion for people who struggle with eating problems...
and an excellent tool for professionals looking for successful ways to
help clients heal eating problems". Rivka Simmons - Founder of Have Your
Cake and Eat it Too!
recommend these CDs for anyone who has a disturbing relationship with
food, and for all therapists. I, as a clinician, also benefited
tremendously. This form of intervention added a new dimension to
therapy. It allowed clients to proceed on their own in a way that felt
deeply respectful to them. It helped to open new areas of therapy
that had not been tended to and helped them move slowly into those
areas." Anne M. Cinque, Ph.D., Psychologist - Washington, DC
"This CD series is
a gem. A significant and invaluable contribution to the field of applied
Buddhism...the best tool for working meditatively with eating problems
that I know of. It is warm, wise, and perhaps most important,
effective. I recommend it highly to those who struggle with
regulating their eating and also to those in the helping professions who
work with such clients." - Joseph Bobrow, Ph.D., Psychologist,
Deep Streams Institute, Roshi, author - San Francisco CA
"This CD program is just
perfect for both therapists and patients. It is a revolutionary, yet
elegant and simple approach for anyone with eating issues." - Helen
Krell, M.D., Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry, U.C. Davis
"Nutrition has always been one
of my passions, so having a greater understanding of this method feels
vital. I've so enjoyed listening to your strong, clear, and comforting
voice." L.W. - Masseuse, Healer
