"My doctor referred me to Becky because of the positive outcomes she's had with other patients. It is not a short drive for me, but it's worth it. Becky's expertise in eating issues has far exceeded the expectations I had for counseling when I first started. She makes me feel safe talking about my relationship with food, but has also helped me realize that the most important way to work toward a healthy life is to heal the relationship with myself first."
"Becky: I wanted to let you know how effective your help has been to me... truly life changing. I had little hope when I came to you that I could ever maintain weight loss but you truly helped me rewire my brain through meditation coupled with the medication from my doctor. The freedom is incredible!! I continue to lose about a pound per week-- it's been a year and I am now enjoying daily workouts. I can easily run three miles, something I could never do previously. Learning to manage my stress scientifically has changed everything and I have every belief this is just my life now! Thank you!"
