For Educational and Informational Purposes Only. As a Certified Intuitive Eating Specialist, I serve women who want to improve their relationships with food, weight and body by providing you with tools and information to help you manage food cravings and how you behave with food and around food. The information provided in or through my Website, Programs, Products and Services is for educational and informational purposes only, and is made available to you as self-help tools for your own use. When serving as a Certified Intuitive Eating Specialist through in-person, phone, Skype, webinars, teleseminars, videos, audios, books, e-books, products, social media, blog articles, or otherwise in a variety of settings such as individual coaching sessions, group programs, classes, workshops, events, retreats, seminars, consultations, or trainings, or through my Website, Programs, Products or Services, you acknowledge that I am supporting you in my role exclusively as a Certified Intuitive Eating Specialist, and in no other role.
Not Medical, Mental Health, or Religious Advice. The information provided in or through my Website, Programs, Products and Services is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment that can be provided by your own doctor/physician, nurse, physician’s assistant, or any other medical professional (“Medical Provider”), psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, or social worker (“Mental Health Provider”), registered dietician or licensed nutritionist, or member of the clergy. I am not providing health care, medical or nutritional therapy services, or attempting to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure in any manner whatsoever any physical, mental or emotional issue, disease or condition. You agree and acknowledge that I am not providing medical advice, mental health advice, or religious advice in any way.
Not Holding Self Out. In my capacity as a Certified Intuitive Eating Specialist, I am not holding myself out in any way as a Medical Provider, Mental Health Provider, registered dietician or licensed nutritionist, or member of the clergy. Rather, I serve as a trainer, educator, coach, mentor and guide who helps you improve your relationship with food, weight and body.
Consult Your Physician or Health Care Provider. My intent is NOT to replace any relationship that exists, or should exist, between you and your Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider. Always seek the advice of your own Medical Provider and/or Mental Health Provider regarding any questions or concerns you have about your specific health situation and any physical or mental health issues, such as possible or actual pregnancy, chronic pain, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or lung conditions, food sensitivities or allergies, or any medications, herbs or supplements you are currently taking. I advise you to speak with your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider before implementing any recommendations or suggestions from our Website, Programs, Products or Services pertaining to your health and wellness. Do not disregard medical advice or delay seeking medical advice because of information you have read on this Website or received from me through my Programs, Products or Services. Do not start or stop taking any medications without speaking to your own Medical Provider and/or Mental Health Provider. If you have or suspect that you have a medical or mental health problem, contact your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider promptly.
Mental Health Provider Recommendation. Should it appear that professional social work or counseling services may be appropriate for any potential mental health issue or concern, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression or eating disorder, I may refer you to a licensed social worker, therapist, counselor, or other mental health practitioner, as I will not be operating at any time as a social worker, therapist, counselor, or mental health practitioner while in the role of an Intuitive Eating Specialist.

No Guarantees. My role is to support and assist you in reaching your own health and lifestyle goals, but your success depends primarily on your own effort, motivation, commitment and follow-through. I cannot predict and I do not guarantee that you will lose weight, gain weight, or attain a particular result, and you accept and understand that results differ for each individual. Each individual’s health and wellness success depends on his or her unique background, dedication, desire, motivation and actions.
