Mindful Eating Class:
The Mindful Eating Class is designed to help people alter their behavior and improve their relationship with food, eating,
and their bodies. The class provides participants with tools, understanding and practices to alter unhealthy behavior,
thoughts, and habits that are at the root of mindless over-eating, binge eating, and body dissatisfaction. I teach this course through the Mindfulness Center at the University of Virginia and it is open to the public.
The next 8-week class begins on September 23, 2022.

Level I Therapeutic Class: Using principles from Mindful Eating, this structured therapeutic class encourages participants to examine the causes and conditions that give rise to and perpetuate disordered eating and how to interrupt the vicious cycles of restricting and bingeing. The class is both didactic and experiential, providing tools for developing a healthier relationship with food, body and Self in a supportive environment. This class is intended for people struggling with Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder and is a prerequisite for participation in the level II group.
Level II Group Therapy* (Completion of Level I class required) This therapeutic group provides the opportunity for interpersonal sharing and support among group members and is less structured than the Level I class. Members are encouraged to practice mindfulness and utilize tools learned in the Level I class. Members are encouraged to have an individual therapist while participating in this group.
