The Soulful Food and Body Experience

THREE MONTH PRIVATE COACHING PROGRAM

Break free from comparison traps and obsessive thinking so you can live a
heart-centered life you love. 

Live your best life

Diet. Free. 

You’ve been concerned about your weight for as long as you can remember.

 

Diets? 

Cleanses?  

Wellness hacks? 

 

You’ve done it all.

 

Willpower and control have been your M.O.

(except for those late-night visits to the kitchen when all hell breaks loose,

but shhhhh no one sees that part)

 

You feel like a failure every time a diet doesn’t “work” and yet you keep trying to make “lifestyle changes” time and time again thinking you’re the problem.

You hate your soft bits, your curvy bits, or maybe you hate it all. Your inner-critic runs the show and it is always around to make sure you feel less than enough. 

 

On top of it all, your passions, your light, and your dreams have gotten dim. You’ve been so concerned with your body and food that you’ve forgotten how to actually LIVE.

Your soul was made for more than this and you know it. You’re ready for a change. 

Your obsessions with food and appearance are standing in your way.

I know you might not feel like you can conquer diet-culture, but I want you to dare to imagine something different.

What if you really could...

  • Go to happy hour with your friends and enjoy a marg (or two or three) guilt-free

  • Spend less time meal prepping and freaking out in grocery stores because feeding yourself is no longer a daily battle

 

  • Strut your stuff in a bathing suit or strip down in the bedroom feeling confident in your body as it is right now

 

  • Feel present in your relationships - showing up as the full, authentic, and messy version of yourself while giving others permission to do the same.

 

  • Enjoy belly laughs, game nights, dance parties, and flirty fun without obsessively thinking about your previous meal, your next meal, or who’s going to eat that last cookie on the counter.

  • Live a life steered by your passions and dreams, not the latest magazine headline. Step into your power and become the badass human you were designed to be.

Good news. All of that is possible.

 

The Soulful Food and Body Experience was designed for people just like you who are ready to ditch diets, turn inward, and find lasting peace and freedom. 

Hi, I'm Chelsea

10 years ago I sucked in my tummy, skipped meals, exercised for days, and felt worthless if my butt didn't fit in my jeans.
 

My healing journey began when I lived in the woods for two months without access to a mirror.

I had an important wake-up call. This dieting B.S. is ridiculous.

 

My eyes were opened to the oppressive systems around me. There was no turning back.

 

👉Then I went to therapy. Lots and lots of therapy. 

Now, I’ve never felt more confident, secure, and comfortable with my body and food.

My own healing journey prompted me to get my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

 

I'd love to ethically coach you with the same compassion, non-judgment, and expertise that I received on my healing journey so that you can put your years of shame and obsessive thinking behind you.

WHAT ALUMNI HAVE SAID

Get inspired… this could be you!

"After the Soulful Food and Body Experience, I no longer fear food or food events, I haven't had a binge in ????? I'm more accepting and appreciative of my body and what it does for me. I am able to recognize hunger and comfortable fullness and no longer think about food or eating 24/7."

Soulful Food and Body Experience ALum

"Food is something that I'm no longer scared of. I eat when I'm hungry regardless of how many times a day that is, or what time of day it is, and until I'm full. I've learned to love my tummy and accept the beautiful body I have.  I've also learned that our bodies are gonna change so many times throughout our life and that it's okay to grieve what it once was, but also recognize how amazing it is now."

Soulful Food and Body Experience ALum

"This program and feedback were specific to my journey and my needs. You can't put a price on having peace with something that's as big a part of your life as eating is. Chelsea was always a calm voice of reason in the storms and always my biggest cheerleader."

What's included in the Soulful Food and Body Experience:

  • The Soulful Food and Body Experience Curriculum: The backbone of the program, this curriculum is skillfully designed to guide and support you on your healing journey using Intuitive Eating, Health At Every Size, mindfulness, and Body Trust principles. Get 12 weeks of assignments, journal prompts, and activities delivered to your inbox every Monday. 

  • A comprehensive initial intake session: I’ll send you a questionnaire asking you all about your relationships with food and your body. We’ll discuss your answers, get to know one another, set intentions for the 3 months, and talk through program logistics during our first 50 min call together.
     

  • (6) 1-1 coaching calls: Bi-weekly sessions to dive deep into the work you’re doing to make massive changes in your relationship with food and your body. This time is devoted to you, your questions, and is fully customized to your experiences in the program.

  • Personalized summaries and session recap notes: After each session I’ll send you a full write up summarizing the topics we discussed, action steps you can take between now and our next session, and suggestions of additional resources that would support your healing journey.

  • Unlimited and daily access to me via Voxer (a modern day walkie-talkie app): Most coaches provide email support between sessions. But I’m able to support you between sessions with voice memos much more personally than I can via email. We’re able to have mini-coaching sessions as often as you need. I’ll be by your side every step of the way ready to celebrate wins, encourage you when you’re having an “off day,” answer questions, and receive updates from you as they come up in real time. 

PLUS, these incredible bonuses!

  • Free 6-month membership to Soulfully You: When you join my membership community, you’re getting support from other womxn who have walked this walk and are currently on their own healing journey. You don’t have to feel alone in this!

  • Free copies of Intuitive Eating and Anti-Diet: These books supplement my program curriculum and are critical in helping you get a deeper understanding of what’s going on in your body and mind as you heal your relationships with food and your body.

“You get so many good resources and the amount of work given is perfect because it makes you think about your mind, body, and soul and gives you time to reflect on that work between meetings.

Soulful Food and Body Experience ALum

"The care that Chelsea put into this coaching program is so evident. From the assignments, the meditations, emails, blog posts, coaching calls, Voxer talks, etc. everything is rooted in love and pure intentions. She always goes the extra mile and it truly shows"

Soulful Food and Body Experience ALum

“Before joining the Soulful Food and Body Experience the thought of freedom in regards to food and my body was something very foreign to me. I had spent so much time (basically my whole life) worried about calories and my reflection in the mirror.

 

Throughout our time together, Chelsea was kind and understanding and never once made me feel guilt or shame over the way I was feeling or processing things. Being met with encouragement rather than shame made all the difference.

 

The support and genuine love I received in this area of my life has put me on a totally new path when it comes to food and my body. I’m forever thankful.

 

After completing this program, I can go to a restaurant and pick the menu item I want rather than what I “should” have. If I feel full, I can stop without clearing my plate, but if I’m still hungry, I can get seconds without guilt. 

 

I feel more free and less controlled by what I eat than ever before.

 

My mental health and personal wellbeing are forever changed and I can’t even put a price on that. 

 

The Soulful Food and Body Experience has been life-changing and I would totally recommend it to the people in my life.”

You might be thinking...

"I've tried everything. How do I know this is going to work?"

I totally understand that doubts and fears might be arising within you. Most people come to me after they’ve tried every diet and every other healing modality on the planet.

 

The last thing you want is to feel like you’ve failed at something… again.

 

I GET IT.

 

And the truth is…

whether something ‘works’ or ‘doesn’t work’ is a product of black and white thinking.

Chances are, this “all or nothing” thinking shows up in your relationship food and your body as well. 

 

But life isn't black and white.

YOU aren't "right or wrong" or "good or bad." And this program won't be a "success or failure."

Learning to sit in the "in-between" spaces in our life can be uncomfortable. But part of this program is about helping you sit in the messy and the real and the raw.

 

Your healing is a journey.

 

And the Soulful Food and Body Experience might be the next, best step on your journey. 

 

Here’s what you can expect: Growth. Learning. New awareness. Eyes being opened. And a lot of practical skills and tools and techniques you can use for the rest of your life.

 

The beautiful truth is, you cannot undo learning.

 

The “ahas” you have during our time together will stick with you forever.

Your journal entries are yours to refer back to anytime you need them.

The new awareness you gain about diet-culture, cannot be undone.

 

It is impossible for you to complete this program (assuming you do the assignments, show up for coaching calls, and chat your days away with me on Voxer) and not feel more connected to yourself - your truth - after this process.

 

I understand that you want to heal so badly. That you want the stress of food and your body image to disappear and never return again. I wish that for you as well.

 

And this program will help you get there!

 

I also know that “off days” happen and that healing isn’t linear. 

 

The Soulful Food and Body Experience helps you dig in, do some serious inner work, and equips you with tools and skills you can use for the rest of your life so that you feel supported and able to handle anything that arises long after our 3-months together.

The Framework

I’ve carefully crafted this program with the intention of moving you forward on your healing journey via a combination of awareness and action.

Phase 1

Mind.
Increasing Awareness

​You will:

  • Deep dive into your thoughts and beliefs about food and your body.

  • Begin integrating mindfulness practices into your daily life.

  • Begin shifting your perception of food and your body.

  • Raise awareness of your mealtime environment and eating habits.

Phase 2

Body.
Intuitive eating and joyful movement

​You will:

  • Learn all things intuitive eating and joyful movement

  • Get embodied (aka, not living from the neck-up!)

  • Get reacquainted with your hunger & fullness cues

  • Learn to discern what’s behind your cravings

  • Find ways to move your body that feel good

Phase 3

Spirit.
Stepping into your power as an anti-dieter

​You will:

  • Explore your soul, spirit, higher-self, and learn ways to stay connected to it in a world that’s saturated with diet-culture

  • Take all the skills you’ve learned up to this point and learn how to integrate them into your life moving forward

  • Learn how to live a life guided by passion, love, and joy instead of fear 

Get off the diet train.
FOR GOOD.

Your inner critic has been running the show, but now’s the time to put your heart and soul in the driver’s seat of your life.

 

You’ve fought a valiant fight to keep up with the world around you, but trust me when I say, you don’t have to fight any longer.

The full program investment
$2,500
(payment plans available)

Making mental health support available to all people is a huge priority of mine. 

 

If you're the right fit for the program,

I will custom tailor the package to you so it fits your budget and payment plan needs. Custom packages range from $1.050 - $2,500.

 

Sliding scale and scholarship opportunities are given first to college students and BIPOC.

I came into the Soulful Food and Body Experience wanting to work on body image and trusting myself. I have struggled for as long as I can remember with both. 

 

Now, I see myself as having a lot more freedom in my movement and my food. My body is totally capable of telling me when I need to eat and what it wants, and I can trust that. 

 

I see myself as more prepared to handle my cravings and tendencies to binge or restrict and instead just pay attention to my hunger-fullness cues. I can go shopping now more confidently knowing that my body is how it should be, and even if I don't love it all the time, I can accept it.

 

This was worth the investment because not only did I get one-on-one meetings for three months, but I also took away tools I will use for the rest of my life as I continue in my journey to self-acceptance. It truly changed how I think about things in great ways. 

Chelsea is amazing!!! She is truly a ray of sunshine that will illuminate your higher self so you can see just how worthy you are of peace. She truly cared about me as a person. When I reached out, I always heard from her very quickly, and I am so grateful."

Frequently asked questions

Is this a weight loss program?


No. I teach intuitive eating principles and work from a Health At Every Size approach, neither of which endorse weight loss as a goal. During our time together you may lose weight, gain weight, or your weight may stay the same. Learning to accept that all three of these outcomes are possible, at any point in life, is something we will work on together. The Soulful Food and Body Experience places emphasis on your relationships with food and your body. If you are looking for a weight loss program, please do not apply.




Do you work with people who have a clinical eating disorder?


No. I’m happy to refer you to a therapist or a treatment center near you. I’m currently working as a coach, not a therapist, so I’m careful to only serve people who will benefit from this level of care. Here is a screening tool from the National Eating Disorders Association, NEDA, if you’re concerned your struggles may meet criteria for an eating disorder: https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/screening-tool




What makes you qualified to do this work?


I have my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health and specialize in eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image. As of fall 2020, I’m in the process of becoming a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor under the supervision of the founders of IE. When you're seeking mental health support, it's very important to look at tangible qualifications and experience. A person’s popularity on social media is not necessarily an indicator of their training and credentials. You can see my certifications and work experience on my About Me page for further information.




Is there a way to keep working with you after the 3 months?


Yes! I offer a 6-month contract (this program + 3 months of unlimited Voxer support and monthly coaching calls) for $3,500. If you don’t want a 6-month commitment, I offer a la carte coaching sessions or Voxer support that is available to you at any time! I will not leave you hanging! Promise.




What makes this program different from other programs?


The two biggest factors that make this program unique and more comprehensive than other coaching programs is the curriculum and Voxer support. I’ve yet to find another 1:1 food and body image program that offers 12 weeks of structured assignments and a curriculum. I’ve created worksheets, journal prompts, guided meditations, etc. that are unique to this program and grounded in my knowledge of ED recovery and healing from diet-culture. Additionally, I truly believe the Voxer support in-between sessions is priceless. When you work with a therapist, they are not available for a quick chat multiple times a day to support you with whatever has come up in the moment.





You were put on this earth to do more than count calories and fixate on your curves.

 

There is a spark. a light. a force inside of you that is unshakable.
