Today, we're sitting down with my dear friend and client, Dr. Jennifer Hartwell!
Dr. Hartwell is a trauma and critical care surgeon in Indianapolis. She and her husband have four children ages 12-21.
Listen in as she opens up about her journey to food freedom.
In this episode, Dr. Hartwell is discussing:

-How her relationship with food and her body shifted as she entered college and the medical field
-What prompted her to seek out a dietician
-Her experience working with me. She's covering everything from her biggest AHA moments to the most challenging parts of her intuitive eating journey -- especially when it came to releasing food rules.
Dr. Hartwell's story is sure to inspire you to give yourself GRACE and understand that healing your relationship with food and your body isn't something that happens overnight. It's a journey that takes time, support, and work, but It's SO worth it, and her story is a testament to that.

Have you ever eaten your favorite holiday food and suddenly felt overcome with guilt after?
If you answered yes, you're not alone! And it's not your fault, friend.
Diet culture instills fear into us and tells us that we cannot trust ourselves around food -- especially around the holidays when we have access to more sweets, baked goods, rich foods, etc.
This leads us to believe that in the face of delicious foods, we are going to go crazy and overeat.
But I think it's time we put an end to this fear-based narrative. That's why today, I'm giving you my best tips to help you truly enjoy your favorite holiday foods this season without guilt or shame.
When it comes to processing grief, this time of year can be tough.
The holiday season can bring up memories of loved ones we've lost or just trauma we've experienced in general.
So, how do we navigate this grief and hold space for others who might be grieving?
And how does that tie into our relationship with food and our bodies during the holiday season?
Today, I'm bringing Kitty Ferguson-Mappus, MSSW, LMSW on the show to tackle these questions. Kitty is an eating disorder specialist, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, EMDR Trained Trauma Therapist, Medical Social Worker, and post-Bariatric Patient living a HAES-aligned life.
In this episode, Kitty is opening up about her personal experience with grief and sharing her best tips for supporting someone who is grieving. Plus, she is digging into how diet culture adds another layer of stress this time of year.
