Virginia’s goal is for people to understand that health and well-being goes way beyond food intake and exercise. While it can feel great to go on a new diet, life happens and we fall off the wagon, leading to shame at our failure to keep it up.
She encourages clients to find the middle path, aiming for variety, adequacy, flexibility, and enjoyment in how they eat and exercise. Exercise should not be a job, but an expression of joy.
The frameworks from which she practices, HAES and Intuitive Eating, can encourage people to look at health and well-being through a wider lens, creating a better understanding of their own bodies and the way that they interact with themselves and the world.
