What Clients Are Saying
On my first call with Lu, I knew she already believed in me, more than I believed in myself.
In many ways, because of Lu, I am finally becoming the person I knew I could be, a person not defined by "food issues."
Lu helps you to discover the person that's always been inside and allows you to embrace that and come home to it.
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.
Lu helped me through some of my darkest times, challenged my thoughts and beliefs, and ultimately helped me to live a life of balance and love: love for myself.Paleo, low-carb, counting macros, "good food and bad food." Any of this sound familiar to you? How about guilt after eating a piece of chocolate or bingeing because you missed a workout? This was me before I met Lu. Before Lu, I lived a life completely ruled by food and fitness. I followed all the fitspo accounts on social media and dove head first into the latest fitness trends. What I was hoping to gain from the social media accounts were fresh ideas and daily motivation to be better and look better. Little did I know, it was only fueling my body shame through constant comparison. Lu was a godsend who helped me in more ways than I can count. She was the nonjudgmental listening ear that I was so desperate to have. Lu helped me through some of my darkest times, challenged my thoughts and beliefs, and ultimately helped me to live a life of balance and love: love for myself. I am beyond grateful for Lu and her heart to help others love themselves in a society that is telling us otherwise. If you struggle with food or body issues, reach out to Lu, you'll be glad you did.
Lu truly understood what I was going through and had so many valuable tools that ACTUALLY WORKED.I was at war with food, exercise, and my body for over twelve years. I was mentally and physically drained and had hit “rock bottom” after another crazy diet and workout program before my wedding. After working with countless therapists over the years, I was beginning to give up hope that anyone would ever be able to help me. But then I met Lu. From our first conversation I knew I had found someone special. She truly understood what I was going through and had so many valuable tools that ACTUALLY WORKED. Not only did she help me break free from the diet mentality, she also helped me peel away the layers of shame that were keeping me from living my best life. Lu is authentic, deep, and compassionate. She made me think, question, and reflect in ways I never had before. Lu is also kind, supportive and will be your biggest cheerleader. She celebrated even my smallest victories, which kept me hopeful and encouraged. I can’t believe that after only six months, Lu was able to turn war into peace. For the first time in a very long time, the obsession stopped, the worry faded, and the love for my life and myself has been restored.
I have more acceptance for who I am, as I am, in this body, or any other body, now.Before working with Lu, my every thought revolved around food, my body, and when I would eat or workout next. I knew that after 10 years of trying to 'figure this out' on my own and nothing changing - it was time to do something different. I couldn't do it alone anymore. I had a friend who had worked with and raved about Lu. So, I decided to work with her too. Through the mentorship, Lu helped me realize that I am perfect right where I am, as I am, and gave me the confidence (and the cheerleading) to live life unapologetically. I now know that listening to my body (not diet books/ fads or pictures of me when I was 18!) is the only way to keep moving forward. I eat when I am hungry, stop when I am full and eat previously 'off limits' foods with so much more grace and ease. I am no longer scared to go to events in case there is food I want to (but 'shouldn't') eat. I am no longer scared that I will always be chained to food. I workout and move how my body wants to move WHEN it feels like it. I have more acceptance for who I am, as I am, in this body, or any other body, now. Lu is like the most supportive friend you could ask for. With her, you're always able to reach out for on the spot coaching when you need it, which was so so helpful. I recommend Lu's coaching for anyone who's looking to find a new way to be around food, body & who they are in the world. Life doesn't have to look like a constant diet, workout, fatigue and obsessing about food. But, the journey can be scary unlearning everything we have learned about food and our bodies. It's a journey that needs a guide. And Lu is that guide. You don't have to deal with this forever, it is possible to change your relationship to food & your body.
Without exaggeration, I am happier and more grounded NOW than I’ve been in my adult life.I had anorexia as a teenager which led, years later, to bingeing and food restriction. As an adult, I was obsessed with food control and my motivation to exercise was always to “burn calories." Then, last September, I found myself crying in the shower thinking "surely there must be more to life than this." That's when I met Lu. I first heard her on a podcast and was captured by what she had to say. I checked out her Instagram and website and resonated so much with what she shared. She seemed funny, down-to-earth and curious with a mix of kindness and tough love. Turns out, Lu was all of those things. She is so kind, relatable, and has a huge heart. She is very present in her interactions. Her insight is ridiculously personalized and her coaching is practical. She’s helped me tune in and listen to my own internal direction and validation related to food, movement and myself (which I still get surprised by because for 30 years I’d been using mostly external input). Lu is like a diet culture myth busting ninja. My goals for my mentorship with Lu were to discover how to eat normally, like and appreciate my body, exercise for fun and make peace with food, body and myself. Ultimately, I wanted to "come home to myself." And in just six months - I did. Since working with Lu, I went to an all inclusive resort in Mexico for a week with no food freak outs despite the all day buffets! I honor my cravings and no longer suppress them. I’ve discovered that it is safe to trust my body and that she (my body) is wise and strong. I now move in ways that are pleasurable to me, exercise is no longer about calorie burning and I rest without guilt. Through Lu I discovered that I don’t need to be skinny to be happy. Without exaggeration, I am happier and more grounded NOW than I’ve been in my adult life. I’m so truly and deeply thankful for Lu and this mentorship.
Signing up for the MEND Sessions was the best thing I have ever done for myself.
The support and coaching Lu provides is life-changing.
Thanks to the MEND Sessions, my entire attitude around food has changed.
Lu takes time to really get to know the clients she works with.
Lu knows just what you're feeling. And she shares recovery ideas that work.
For the first time in over a decade, I eat shame and guilt free.
My relationship with food and my body has improved.
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.
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!
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 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.
I thought I was stuck in diet mentality and body hate forever. But, Lu did the impossible.
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’d recommend Lu to anyone who is struggling with food and body - but really to any woman who feels she isn’t living the life she wants to be.I used to be obsessed with the scale. The body weight scale, food scale, how much weight was on the bar at the gym, myfitnesspal, my macro counts - basically any measurement of fitness achievement I could calculate. I was constantly exercising to manipulate my body and, no matter what I ate, no matter how many squats I did, I STILL found something I wanted to chisel away at. I exhausted, ignored and pushed my body. I didn’t trust her. And I was living in a constant state of fear. Fear of rejection. Fear that others would find out I was an imposter at work. Fear of showing up as who I really was because I wanted to be liked. (I shudder at that word now.) I had ZERO confidence and was a perpetual doormat. I knew I didn’t want to live the rest of my life this way, so I hired Lu. She is real and transparent and she challenged me to show up in the world that way too. Lu is dynamic and her insights into the struggles women deal with in today’s society make her invaluable. She is non-judgmental and can hold space for you, no matter what walk of life you come from. That is a true gift. She’s the honest girlfriend that we all wish we had, the person who will tell you what you need to hear, and her devotion is genuine. Since working with Lu, the way I see myself is completely different. I don’t look in the mirror constantly. I don’t pick apart my body. I see myself as a whole and recognize that I am actually a pretty amazing human with values, opinions, and things that I give a shit about. It is such a peaceful and freeing feeling to know that I am 100% okay as I am, right now. I've started pursuing creative interests that have nothing to do with fitness or food and I've begun to cultivate what it means to be uniquely me. I’d recommend Lu to anyone who is struggling with food and body - but really to any woman who feels she isn’t living the life she wants to be. To any woman who is afraid to pursue joy and to any woman who doesn’t feel that they are showing up in the world as the person they really are.
Through working with Lu, I learned to identify diet mentality and culture, love myself, and be grateful for my body.In hindsight, I know I've struggled with disordered eating and exercise since I was 13, and yet in our culture it seemed like the norm. Eventually, the food restriction and intense exercise I’d been doing for years caught up to me and I began to binge. It was during this time the thought occurred to me that “no matter how much smaller my body has been, it was never small enough.” I never felt thin enough or good enough. And that’s when it hit me that maybe the answer wasn’t in my weight maybe it was in my relationship with myself. That’s when I came across Lu. Her passion to inform others about diet culture and her direct communication were the wake-up call I needed to make a change in my life and she was exactly the person to help me through it. Lu is wise, kind, personable, understanding, open minded, and fun. Communicating with Lu always felt like I was talking to a dear friend who had my back. I could say anything to her without judgment. The recovery process can be difficult, and can feel lonely when everyone around you is dieting and criticizing their bodies. But, having Lu in my corner gave me a sense of security as I worked through my healing. It really is important to have someone on your side for recovery and support, and she does it so well. Through working with Lu, I learned to identify diet mentality and culture, love myself, and be grateful for my body. I discovered my self-worth and found peace with ME. In addition, I learned intuitive eating and exercise, and how much better I feel doing this. It’s a miracle to be relaxed around food for the first time in my life, and I have a sense of freedom that I never had before. For anyone who struggles with negative ideas of weight, food and self-worth, I can’t recommend working with Lu enough. She is the most amazing guide through the journey, and I am eternally grateful for her.
Signing up for coaching with Lu was one of the best decisions I ever made in my body acceptance and intuitive eating journey.Before working with Lu, I spent years engaging in disordered eating and exercise behaviors. I was never satisfied with how I looked and was constantly on a new diet or exercise program to try and make myself “good enough.” I “dabbled” in intuitive eating by doing research, taking a course, and engaging with people on social media. But despite having all the knowledge, something still wasn’t clicking. That’s when I found Lu on Instagram. She was so down to earth and regularly acknowledged the difficulties in working towards body acceptance while living in a larger body (unlike most of the other intuitive eating practitioners I had encountered who were thin and didn’t seem to care about the weight stigma clients may experience). I decided to sign up for individual coaching with Lu and it was one of the best decisions I ever made in my body acceptance and intuitive eating journey! Lu was great to work with. For the first time I felt like I had someone on my side, coaching me to make changes in how I thought, not just what I thought. Whenever I needed a pep talk or someone to process with, she was accessible and showed me that my questions were worth addressing, the difficulties I was facing were valid. Since working with Lu, I’ve felt more at ease with my eating and movement choices and more confident in my own skin, than I have in years (or maybe ever)! Lu is so easy to relate to—I never felt “less than” when voicing my struggles and I knew I was being truly celebrated in my successes. I would absolutely recommend Lu’s programs to anyone who is working on bettering their relationship with their body, food, and movement. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and genuine. If you’re looking for your very own “hype girl,”Lu is your coach!
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?
