I’m an addictions and eating disorder therapist and the founder and treatment developer of Beacon by MC. I began my professional path after not being able to find a sustainable solution for my own food addiction. I have a bachelor’s degree in social work from Cornell University and masters in social work from Columbia University. I also have extensive training in Substance Use, Eating Disorders and am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I’m also a normal gal with a generally fantastic life. I’m a godmother, dog-lover, a reluctant yoga enthusiast (most happy when class is over). I’m not a masterchef or a meal-prep fanatic. Though I’m long broken up with Sugar, I’m a terrible cook who eats out most of the time. Just ask the unopened Cuisinart in my kitchen.
I know what it’s like to be broken-hearted, afraid, and completely hopeless from the abuse that follows food, weight and diet drama. I battled my eating disorders and addictions for over 20 years, and now I’m here on the other side, ferociously waving you in. It wasn’t until I broke free from my abusive relationship with sugar and divorced the diets for good, that I started my healing path and learned to truly live. I love my life, and you can love yours too.
My heart is completely devoted to you and helping you end your struggles. I’m committed to helping you because breaking free from Sugar and dieting has opened my eyes to a whole new capacity to love that I never could have imagined was in me.
This is my calling, not a choice. I have an unwavering passion for helping people break free from abusive relationships with Sugar, dieting, body obsession, and the like. It’s why I extended the realm of my training into the spirit – I’m trained in Shamanism, Tibetian sound healing, breathwork, reiki and intenSati and I’m a pretty rigorous meditator.
You deserve to transform thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors to heal your relationship with food and yourself. And now you have me, by your side, with a pinky swear promise to never ever give up on you. So, put your diet drama and trauma on notice and tell that sneaky abuser Sugar that you’re not getting rid of me. Let’s get your new relationship started, and remember… I’m fiercely devoted to your freedom.
