Body Image Issues
Maybe you aren't worried that you have disordered eating habits, but find that you are spending too much time and emotional energy being critical of your body.
Living in a society (and in Dallas in particular) where image can be everything at times, I help you challenge the ingrained tendency to compare to others, learn how to mute your self-critical voice, and move through other barriers impacting body image.
I can also provide take-home activities for you to foster a more accepting view of your body and self.
Embody Love Movement Workshops
As an Embody Love Movement Facilitator ™ I also empower girls and women to celebrate their inner beauty, commit to kindness, and contribute to meaningful change in the world.

Contact me for questions and/or interest in how I can bring this to your school, organization, workplace, etc.
EMBODY LOVE WORKSHOP™ is a 2-3 hour transformational workshop for teens and adult women that takes participants on a journey toward self-acceptance.
The goal is for participants to set new intentions about how they feel, think, and speak to themselves and others.
Participants are offered the opportunity to engage in process exercises in which they explore their internalized beliefs about beauty and self-worth and are given the tools to understand that these negative beliefs have a detrimental impact on their viewing themselves as purposeful and worthy.
Interactive exercises include:
- Dismantling the “beauty myth”
- Changing the conversation from criticism to kindness
- Embodied yoga experience
- Commiting to being kind to ourselves, and therefore each other
- Seeing and experiencing ourselves as worthy from the inside out
- Recognizing our contributions through conscious activism
