The Out of the Cave Group Program is a transformational 12-module coaching experience designed to empower you with the skills, tools, education, and support you need to use your struggle with food & body as a path to mind-body-soul alignment so you can embody a life of freedom. Designed for anyone struggling with “disordered” eating habits (over-eating, under-eating, mindless eating, stress eating, emotional eating, yoyo-dieting, compulsive dieting, etc.), this holistic, trauma-informed curriculum is designed to support participants in understanding how they got “here” (where exactly did the mind and body become disconnected in the first place and why has “intuitive eating” become so elusive), how to get “out” (reconnect to themselves, embody authenticity, and feel safe honoring their body’s needs), and how to maintain it (design a lifestyle supportive to a regulated nervous system and sustainable mental, emotional, spiritual, social, physiological and physical well-being moving forward). This strengths-based program is rooted in the belief that using food to cope is a normal, human, and valid method of managing stress, coping with emotion, and regulating energy, AND that it is possible to heal from the inside out.

“If you’re a doctor, and you see 100 kids that all drink from the same well, and 98 of them develop diarrhea, you can go ahead and write that prescription for dose after dose after dose of antibiotics, or, you can walk over and say, ‘what the hell is in this well?’”
