who is passionate about helping her clients have a happier and healthier relationship with food and body. With an extensive background in holistic nutrition, mind-body practices, fitness, and culinary arts, Britt brings a blend of knowledge, experience, and intuition into her coaching practice.
From a young age Britt was taught about the importance of the relationship between what we eat and how we feel. She has always possessed an innate sense of what works for her body, and as a child she instinctively became a vegetarian. Upon attending college, her relationship with food became less intuitive and more rigid and restrictive. This began a years-long struggle with disordered eating that led to many ups and downs. Through her own struggle, Britt learned a tremendous amount about food, nutrition, and exercise all in an attempt to eat “perfectly.” Her obsession with strict control would then backfire into shame-filled binge eating episodes which left her feeling hopeless and broken.
At the time Britt was teaching elementary school and attending Dominican University of California for her Master’s in Education. She decided to channel her misguided energy into writing her Master’s thesis on childhood nutrition and its effects on behavior in the classroom. Learning about food sparked an interest in her to deepen her studies into nutrition, and so she pursued studying holistic nutrition and culinary arts at Bauman College where she became a Certified Natural Chef. She quickly learned how home cooked meals made with love provided a sense of comfort, satisfaction, and pleasure. From there Britt continued on a healing journey of personal growth, which was fueled by her desire to feel good in her body again, and to reclaim her zest for life (and food and fun!) that she had experienced as a child and young teenager.
By “doing the work,” Britt was able to break free from her struggle with food and body and to come home to herself. She is a Certified Eating Psychology Coach from the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Her studies there prepared her to use practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind-body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health. She is inspired to help others who are facing eating and body image challenges to overcome those obstacles so they can step into their light and authenticity.
