I am not only a facilitator of the MB-EAT program, I have also benefited immensely and for that reason am happy to bring MB-EAT to the area and share what I have learned. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been since 2006. I am also a Duke University graduate. I have spent my career helping people manage stress, anxiety and depression. But in 2011 my life changed and I was diagnosed with breast cancer and due to treatment, i found myself in menopause, my metabolism changed forever. I gained weight, ate my stress, and generally had a whole new set of problems. I tried every diet; went vegan, keto, paleo, grain free, gluten free, counted calories, etc. I struggled. I began meditating (or mindfully breathing) in 2016 and i continue to this day, meditating daily and/or participating in a yoga class. What i found was my stress went way down, my mind cleared, I had more space. This drew me to the MB-EAT program and i am so glad that I am now a facilitator. I have lost 10 lbs so far and continue to lose without judgment, without struggle. This isn’t a diet or a therapy, it is a program with a set of mindfulness tools that can change your life forever.

About Claire’s Work
MB-EAT (Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training) Program
Based on the proven MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, MB-EAT helps people use mindfulness techniques applied to eating to slow down and tune in to the body and naturally eat less and be satisfied; no struggle involved.
MB-EAT was developed by Dr. Jean Kristeller and supported by NIH funded research to address mindless, habitual eating and binge eating. Although this program has been used for binge eating disorders, I am focusing on the general population in my practice to address stress eating, mindless eating and emotional eating.
The MB-EAT program is 10 weeks with 2 follow ups. This is generally done in a group setting, but can be done individually. I will also offer a modified 4-week program for those individuals who have limited time and resources.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing this wonderful program with you! The best way to contact me will be via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll have group times posted soon on the Health Touch calendar and payment is done via my website at mbeatprogram.com or by check.
