A note to you, especially if you are wondering if this might be a good fit.

How do you want to feel this summer?
 I know for me, 55 lbs ago, I didn't want another summer of trying to find clothes to hide my arms, shorts that fit and that wouldn't do the inner-thigh ride up, and flowy-type blouses that didn't make me worry if I looked pregnant, even if I was menopausal!  

And deeper than that, I simply wanted to feel better in my body and learn to stop judging everything that went into my mouth or every time I caught my reflection.  

I needed to try something different since I 'knew what to do', but couldn't seem to follow through.  

Students often tell me the Outsmart Overeating course offers a structure for self-healing well beyond weight loss.  

If you are on the fence I invite you to jump off and consider how 8 weeks of supported and focused work (yes, it's work) can change how you feel about yourself, your body and your relationship with food this summer.  

You'll learn a scientific approach that doesn't leave out the emotional weight and includes real-life, practical skills and tools that go beyond diets that don't work.    

It's the 17th offering (!) and with all that experience, the Outsmart course structure and tools have been honed for the most effective path for your success.  

We being on Monday, April 1.  

 How do you want to feel this summer?

I want to help you get there.  

I'm ready when you are.
Sending you a springtime of kindness.

What do you get when you cross a credentialed counselor, a seasoned minister and a joyful brain geek? Me. 

After years of having success in most areas of my life, I was fed up and embarrassed that I couldn't figure out how to have a healthy relationship with food and my body. I was determined to figure it out in a way that I could live (and eat) the rest of my life.

I've lost the extra 55 lbs and am confident, it's off for good. 

It's been a couple of years and even through the pandemic, family health issues, and significant professional transitions, it has STAYED off.

I feel free in ways I had only imagined. 

This is why I am committed to sharing what I've learned with women; how to release years of diet mentality and self-judgement and live a life that you dream of. 

I use what I know: how to change our mind for good by using and teaching accessible brain science, how to meet ourselves with compassion and learn to keep commitments to ourselves, our goals and our dreams through the use of developing habits that will serve a lifetime. 

 I meet you at the crossroads of mind, body, spirit. 

I can't wait for you to learn to love your body and be proud to call it home.

With a big dose of laughter, occasional irreverence, and the belief in you (even when you don't yet), I'll be honored to support your journey. 


     " I love food. I love to cook and I love to eat. I've tried different diets - Weight Watchers, Slimming World, Noom - but when I tired of restrictive practices, I always put the weight back on - and then some. I couldn't exercise due to a back condition but with this program, not only did I lose 10 lbs. in 10 weeks but I really enjoyed doing it. How great is that!?"
     " Alicia knows her stuff and she's passionate about what she does. She is a brilliant guide and mentor - knows how to listen and always responds with helpful insights and suggestions. I learnt a lot during this program and feel so much more empowered around my behavior and attitude towards food. I love to cook and to eat but I no longer overeat. I love my slimmer self and I'm totally confident that I'm going to stay fitter and healthier. This is an amazing program!"
