FINDING FOOD FREEDOM, BEFRIENDING YOUR BODY AND MOVING ON WITH YOUR LIFE STARTS NOW.

But don’t just take my word for it, take theirs.

What Clients Are Saying

On my first call with Lu, I knew she already believed in me, more than I believed in myself.

Before working with Lu, I didn’t have very good tools for tackling things that had been bothering me for years about my life, my relationships, and about my body. I would have described myself as overwhelmed and lacking in confidence, even if I didn’t appear that way to others. On my first call with Lu, I knew she already believed in me, more than I believed in myself. Through our time together, I have learned to trust more – to trust that I don’t need to know all of the steps on my journey before I take the first one, that I only need to figure out the next right step, and that I am okay and enough exactly as I am. My relationships with myself, my husband, and my kids have improved. I have learned to advocate for myself in new ways, as well as to soften toward others who are doing the best they can with what they know. I appreciate Lu’s passionate spirit and warm heart, and I am so grateful for having found my way to the mentorship with her.

In many ways, because of Lu, I am finally becoming the person I knew I could be, a person not defined by "food issues."

It is difficult to put into words everything Lu did for me, because I am a different person after working with her. A better person. I no longer see myself as somehow damaged. I do not think I am a failure because of my body size and my binge eating. Food is becoming less and less of a coping mechanism for me. In many ways, because of her, I am finally becoming the person I knew I could be, a person not defined by "food issues." Lu is one of the most genuine, caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She has dedicated her life to helping women realize they are fine just the way they are. It is a simple message, but when so much around us is telling us we are flawed, it is so powerful to have this beautiful, compassionate woman telling you, “you are ok.” I can’t thank Lu enough.

Lu helps you to discover the person that's always been inside and allows you to embrace that and come home to it.

Lu has the ability to make you feel like she has known you from the moment you first talk. I'm a born type-A person with perfectionist tendencies - it is no wonder that I slipped into diet mentality so easily and became obsessive around food and exercise. Working with Lu, I slowly loosened that grip. I feel freer and like a new energy has awoken within me. The amazing thing about working with Lu is that the transformation is not a jolt or a huge awakening (which is a good thing) - she helps you to discover the person that's always been inside and allows you to embrace that and come home to it. One day you look back on your old behaviors and you realize how far you've come. Working with Lu I realized where my values in life truly lie - I want to spend my time living and loving in my life and not wondering about my weight or food.

I no longer struggle with food and for the first time in what seems like years, I've been able to relax around eating and enjoy it for what it is.

I'm really glad I found Lu! She's helped me to change my life in profound ways and I feel more capable than ever to handle what comes. I no longer struggle with food and for the first time in what seems like years, I've been able to relax around eating and enjoy it for what it is. I've become more in tune with my body's needs and know what foods make her thrive. More importantly, I've gained a new found self-love for this beautiful body of mine and no longer agonize over "imperfections." Lu has helped me to choose celebration over criticism, which has completely shifted my perspective of my body, as well as my life. I always leave our conversations feeling like the best version of myself. She helps provide clarity in tough-to-navigate situations and guides me into higher states of self-awareness. I'm so thankful I have Lu on my side. She's been such a gift to me, as well as those around me, and I know I will benefit from our mentorship for many years to come.

Signing up for the MEND Sessions was the best thing I have ever done for myself.

It was a really positive investment in so many ways. Thanks to Lu, I finally know what it feels like to eat, guilt-free. Her advice on developing a positive body image and moving mindfully made so much sense to me. Plus, whenever I had a “bad day," Lu was right there to talk me through it. Her coaching was super helpful, easy to apply and not at all intimidating. Of everything I learned in the program, I think the most important for me has been recognizing that I am worthy of showing myself care, compassion and love.
Holly

The support and coaching Lu provides is life-changing.

I've invested in a number of intuitive eating and body image programs over the years, but nothing stuck until the MEND Sessions. I learned so much about myself and my relationship to food and body in these ten short weeks. I know the lessons I learned will benefit me for years to come, especially the workbooks on atypical eating experiences, self compassion and body image practices. I'm really grateful I joined the Sessions and can't recommend them enough!
Ali

Thanks to the MEND Sessions, my entire attitude around food has changed.

My binges stopped and I began to feel empowered and confident. I started to explore foods I liked, ways to feed my family without stress and frustration and ways to move my body that didn't feel like punishment or obligation. The lessons and activities were valuable. But, for me, the most life-changing part of the program was the personal coaching from Lu and getting specific recommendations for my situation. No matter how much I struggled to communicate my questions or challenges, Lu was invariably able to provide perfect recommendations for additional reading, point out activities that might be especially beneficial or simply offer helpful insight into my situation. This course and Lu's coaching have truly changed my life!
Kati

Lu takes time to really get to know the clients she works with.

She was always available to coach me through issues as they came up and supported me in figuring things out on my own too. The skills that Lu taught me in healing my relationship with food and with my own body have also helped to enhance my personal relationships. Her support has shown me that my experiences are valid, regardless of the intentions of others, both in food/body scenarios and elsewhere. Working with Lu has honestly changed the way I view myself and how I interact with the world around me - and that change has been so positive and empowering!
Cassie

Lu knows just what you're feeling. And she shares recovery ideas that work.

After the MEND Sessions, I can finally see a life beyond the years of self-abuse and body hatred. I'm giving myself grace to eat what I want, when I want it and to move when and how I feel like it. While I still have difficult days, I'm able to accept each situation as it comes without assigning personal judgment. I view myself as a capable human with a body that allows me to do and feel the things that bring me joy. My relationship with my spouse is much more positive and fun and we're sharing experiences together that never would have happened before the Sessions. I'm still working on developing a more positive body image. But, I have wonderful resources (thanks Lu!) and a support system that makes me feel loved, worthy, and beautiful at any size.
Sarah

For the first time in over a decade, I eat shame and guilt free.

I’d had around 12 years of an extremely negative relationship with my body when I got into Lu's MEND Sessions. Her materials were on point, but what truly stood out to me was her coaching. Lu is an extremely competent coach who doesn't only rely on her personal experience or opinions, but has data to back her up. Talking to her, I felt like she knew exactly what I was going through. She immediately picked up on my old beliefs and gave me suggestions on how to work through them. It was the first time in my life where I felt understood. No therapist has ever given me that feeling. I finally know that IT IS POSSIBLE to accept MY body. My relationship with food isn't perfect, but for the first time in over a decade, I eat shame and guilt free. I now have a much better understanding of my behaviours around food and what they depend on, which has given me the freedom to break harmful habits and quiet destructive thoughts.
Gabi

My relationship with food and my body has improved.

I never fully understood what dieting was doing to me until I took this course. I really enjoyed the lessons. Especially Lesson 6 as it delves into improving and accepting my body and self. I also loved the 1:1 coaching calls with Lu. She's not the kind of coach to expect you to figure everything out on your own. She listens, asks questions and gives helpful, educated advice that works.
Barbara

I’m not sure where I'd be right now if Lu hadn’t helped to calm the chaos that was my food and body life.

She's been a wonderful cheerleader, coach and support to have in my corner. Thanks to the MEND Sessions, my every thought is no longer consumed with food rules or self-criticism. The 1:1 calls and workbooks were amazing, and I always looked forward to both!
April

I can’t say enough about my experience with Lu.

She met me exactly where I was and with kindness and love, encouraged me to shift my views on diet culture, inclusion, feminism and my own body. What I saw I cannot unsee. What I “unlearned” with her (and what I continue to “unlearn”) is extremely valuable. Not only did Lu patiently challenge me, she continues to be a support even after the program has ended. I’m so grateful for her insight. Thank you Lu!

Carmen

It’s really quite amazing how different my mindset around food and body is now.

I used to be an entirely different person – hiding and bingeing and thinking I was addicted to food and sugar, forcing exercise to control my body and believing I’d struggle for the rest of my life.

Now, after working with Lu, things are so much better. I do what I do and eat what I eat because I want to feel energized, powerful, and happy. I move my body for fun and not as “punishment” for what or how much I ate and I have a better relationship with my body and others around me too.

Lu is amazing. She’s supportive and kind but also full of great knowledge about food, our bodies, and life in general! She allowed me to work at my own pace in my own struggles in real time – never judging or rushing or trying to limit our topics of conversation. My food issues were in many ways just a symptom of root problems and she created a safe space to delve into those topics that weren’t necessarily food or body image related. She always asked great questions and offered relevant resources too. I’m grateful for Lu’s work, words and heart. She invested herself in my healing and recovery and I am a different person because of it.

In the six months I worked with Lu,
I completely transformed.

I silently struggled with an eating disorder for ten years. Starting in high school through law school, I was entrenched in the restrictive eating and over-exercising cycle. As my mental health and physical health deteriorated, I spent years feeling ashamed, hopeless, and lonely. I never thought I would find a way out. But I did: it was Lu. From the moment I spoke with her, I knew Lu was the extra help I needed for breaking the cycle. In an instant, I felt supported, heard, and empowered. Lu has an uncanny ability to listen without judgment and to respond with profound understanding.

In the six months I worked with Lu, I completely transformed. I am no longer obsessed with exercise, calories, or weight. I eat and move to nourish my body rather than to punish it. My eyes have been opened to the wide-spread reach of diet culture and I have a new understanding of what healthy means. In addressing my food and body issues, I have been able to take on and evaluate other areas in my life such as my career, relationships, and finding my purpose.

I am forever grateful that Lu came into my life. She was a truly bright, guiding light in a time of great uncertainty and fear. I have gained more things than I can count, but one of the most important: a badass, caring, insightful friend.

Lu showed me how to love myself again and taught me the value of being present- two gifts I will never be able to thank her enough for.

I started working with Lu after going through an awful breakup. When I first spoke to her, I remember feeling like someone got it in a way no one else did. Maybe she had never gone through exactly what I was going through (combination of bad break up and coming out), but after our first session, I felt that little glimpse of hope, saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Throughout our time together, Lu was my cheerleader, without a single ounce of judgment. She was there for me no matter the time of day- and believe me, there were definitely some late night and early morning texts! What I love most about Lu is that she doesn’t give you the answers even when all you want is for someone to tell you what to do. She does you one better- she asks the right questions and guides you in such a way to pull your truth right out of you, leaving you as the one in charge. There’s not much in life that’s more powerful than knowing you actually do have the answers within you- sometimes it just takes the right person giving you the tools to find that part of yourself. Lu truly has a gift as a friend and a teacher and I cannot put into words how fortunate I feel to have been able to work with her. She showed me how to love myself again and taught me the value of being present- two gifts I will never be able to thank her enough for.

I would highly recommend Lu to anyone struggling to be free from the chains of food and exercise addiction and seeking to love what they see in the mirror everyday.

Lu is the absolute best! I really needed someone to open up to about my struggles with disordered eating and exercise and she was a listening ear that provided a safe space for me to share, free of judgement. All of her recommendations for resources and homework exercises were tailored just for me and my needs as I continued to progress on the journey of self acceptance and body love. Lu is filled with awesome insight and can relate to her clients from having "been there." She helped me connect the dots to uncover the deeper underlying beliefs that fueled my body image issues. Addressing those issues is certainly hard work but so worth it and key to rewiring how I view myself. It feels good to listen to my body and give it what it needs instead of expending inordinate amounts of energy to shame myself into diets and over-exercise only to rebound and repeat the cycle again. I would highly recommend Lu to anyone struggling to be free from the chains of food and exercise addiction and seeking to love what they see in the mirror everyday.

Lu is truly gifted, a master at her work.

Working with Lu was the best wake up call! Her coaching shifted my perception. She met me where I was (at a very profound low) and gently got me back on track by revealing my false beliefs and working together with me to dissolve them. It was as if I had a computer glitch and our work together was a complete reboot to my operating system! While at first I was skeptical, it only took a few sessions to recognize Lu's authenticity. I could not believe the level of care and love she put into her coaching. It's what allowed me to trust her completely. Lu has the deepest capacity to love, listen and hold space. After each coaching session Lu sends a thoughtfully written review, highlighting the important points and offering feedback filled with pearls. This recap is worth it’s weight in gold. No other coach I’ve worked with does this. In between coaching calls when I felt the need to check in via text her responses were timely, validating and always brought peace of mind. She is truly gifted, a master at her work.

I thought I was stuck in diet mentality and body hate forever. But, Lu did the impossible.

I've always struggled with food and body image stuff. When life got out of control I would turn to food restriction and over exercising in order to cope. Eventually, this led me to a bad relationship with a "fitness coach" who had me eating barely any calories and working out way too much. I was miserable and gaining weight. But, most of all, I had lost my connection to self. I was in a job I hated, living in a city that didn't feel like home and practicing pleasing everyone but myself. That's when I found Lu. Now, I'm working a new job, chasing my dreams of building my own company. I eat what I want and actually desire foods that nourish me. I no longer shame myself when I don't feel like working out and I have a respectful relationship with my body. I've learned to be the observer of my thoughts and actions and I take steps every day to get closer to the life that I want to be living. I remember when I first began working with Lu and was afraid that she wouldn't be able to help me. I thought I was stuck in diet mentality and body hate forever. But, she did the impossible. If you feel out of touch with who you are or what you want in life, if you are struggling with food and hating on your body, if you are even considering working with Lu - DO IT! She is more than a mentor. She really is your fan-girl, cheerleader, best friend and big sister. She's approachable and SO SUPPORTIVE. I love how she could always tell me what I needed to hear, even if I didn't want to hear it. She has the biggest heart ever and I will always think of her as the bright star who helped me to find my way home to myself.

I feel so much more peace around food and my body now and that has freed up space in my life to find more joy and meaning.

I began working with Lu during a very difficult period in my life. I’d spent the last few years eating restrictively and obsessing about exercise. For a while those behaviors didn’t seem like a problem. But very quickly, they started to interfere with my ability to actually live my life. I couldn’t go out to dinner with friends because there wouldn’t be anything on the menu that I could eat without feeling horribly guilty. I couldn’t go for a bike ride or a run with anyone else because I had such a specific (specifically arbitrary) training program set out for myself. It was incredibly isolating and distressing thoughts surrounding food and my body took up far too much of my brain space.

I first heard Lu on the Real Talk Radio podcast and several of the insights she shared blew my mind and helped me come to the realization that even though I was doing all these supposedly “healthy” things, my mental and emotional health was suffering for it. Lu supported me through many difficult transitions during our 6 month mentorship. I quit school, came out to my parents and explored new relationships, not to mention all the progress I’ve made with regards to my relationship to food and my body. I love her holistic approach to this type of coaching because, in particular, this experience has made me realize just how much my preoccupation with food and my body was a symptom of issues I was grappling with in other areas of my life. I still have work to do but it was so unbelievably helpful to have Lu alongside me during the initial stages of my recovery. I feel so much more peace around food and my body now and that has freed up the space in my life to find more joy and meaning.

I find myself still living freely today, even after years have passed since we worked together.

My time working with Lu was truly invaluable. Lu helped me to dig deep and uncover what was really going on behind my food and body concerns. My biggest take-away from our time together has been a newfound ability to shift my perspective. I now look at situations from a position of grace and speak to myself in a more loving voice. What’s coolest of all is that the changes I made while working with Lu lasted. I find myself still living freely today, even after years have passed since we worked together. I would recommend Lu to anyone who is ready to break free from food and body worries and uncover what really sets their heart on fire.

What if this is it?

The moment that changes everything?

I know how counter-intuitive it is to abandon control for the sake of gaining it.

And how impossible it seems that you’ve finally found the answer to healing your food and body relationship when the countless other methods you’ve tried have only ever left you feeling worse than when you started.

BUT WHAT IF?

What if it’s true?

What if you really can find food freedom and befriend your body?

And what if working together makes all the difference?

I believe it. Do you?
