Get started, feel better!
I use a comprehensive model that digs down deep to help you heal from the inside out through our 12-week commitment. I strive to create a safe, empowering, brave, encouraging, judgement-free, supportive experience for you as you move through your food and body image healing journey.
“I have no idea how I’d survive this pandemic if I was still dieting and binge eating. Things are hard, but at least food isn’t something I’m super anxious about.”
“I feel like my life has changed – I seriously am no longer bingeing.”
“I’m blown away by how much the ‘food police’ were affecting my eating. It’s crazy how just asking, ‘what sounds good’ has flipped everything! I was totally judging my food choices before.”
“I’ve been working out because it feels good and because I want to get stronger! Like, the motivation has been less weight focused.”
“I bought a pint of Ben & Jerry’s at the grocery store 2 weeks ago and STILL have it. I’ve been able to have a few bites and put it back in the freezer.”
“I am much more content in my body, even though my body hasn’t changed.”
“I’m able to actively stop negative thoughts about my body when they come on!”
“I went to the beach and ate pizza and ice cream without worrying one bit! I was truly present.”
“I got an ice cream cone tonight and threw it out 1/4 the way through because I just decided I had enough.”
“I’m able to not feel guilty for eating out and ordering what sounds good to me, not what is ‘healthy’ or ‘diet friendly'”
- Fed up with the stress of diets, restricting and feeling out of control with food?
- Sick of going to Google or other people for answers on how to EAT, care for yourself or feel more comfortable in your body?
- Ready to find a more empowering, realistic way of eating and living?
- Excited to learn how to trust your own body, mind and spirit when it comes to making food and wellness decisions?
I can help ☺️ Here’s how 👇🏽
Your First Wellness Counseling Session
We’ll talk about your relationship with food, dieting & weight history, eating patterns, and how you feel about your body. We’ll discuss your goals, define what health looks like for you, and uncover areas of healing that we’ll work on together over the next 12 weeks.
Follow-up Wellness Counseling Sessions
You have unlimited follow up counseling sessions. Clients average one session per week. During follow-ups, we check in on what’s going well for you as well as identify what’s feeling challenging and discuss how to work through it. We’ll set manageable behavior changes that you can incorporate before our next call to get you closer to your goals.
“After wasting so much money and time I came to Lexy hoping she could help me. She is amazing! She has been there every step of the way with ideas, a caring ear when I was frustrated and so much encouragement. Lexy is the first person to set me on the path to better health. Lexy is knowledgable and caring. Working one on one with her, she can help guide you to feeling better and living your best life!”
What does the process look like?
- You will fill out a quick check-in form online in Practice Better within 24 hours before each follow up session. This allows you to track your own progress towards your goals, and allows me to see how I can best tailor our session to support you!
- During follow up sessions, we’ll check in on how you’re feeling about food and your body image. It’s YOUR time to focus on whatever you want! Many of our sessions will include unpacking limiting beliefs, adopting more positive self-talk, developing more self-compassion and taking practical action towards self-care. Our sessions are designed to keep you moving towards living the kind of life you want!
- After each session, you’ll get a recap including notes from that day’s session along with worksheets and readings as necessary to help implement our work between sessions.
- I encourage you to dive deep between sessions doing your “soul work” (kind of like homework for the soul?!) which includes reading, journaling, and other exercises to encourage behavior change and promote healing.
Where do sessions take place?
Due to COVID19, all sessions are online via Zoom. You can read more about getting your computer, phone or tablet setup here.
Support Between Sessions
You’ll have access to me outside of our sessions to support you through any questions or challenges that come up. Consistent support is so important in helping you to achieve your goals. Clients have said this is one of their favorite features of working together.
I am available via email and messaging through Practice Better daily. I have notifications turned off and I check my messages periodically throughout the day. You will always hear back from me within 24 hours unless otherwise noted by me.
Examples of what you may need outside session support on:
- Navigating comments made about your body and/or your eating habits by a loved one
- Handling a bad body image day
- Preparing for a meal out or handling an unexpected food situation
- Feeling anxious around food choices either alone or with others
“Lexy has helped me focus on eating mindfully and purposely. Her suggestions feel tailored to me and are manageable and realistic. As a result, I’m eating healthier, feel better, and have more energy. She is easy to talk to, very responsive and I really like her laid back but real approach to nutrition.”
Books mailed to your doorstep
I will send you books right to your doorstep! We discuss them in our sessions and I’m available between sessions to discuss anything that comes up while you’re reading the books. I will also recommend articles and podcasts. This is to help you learn, unlearn and process concepts and principles we discuss during sessions.
Some books I commonly send to clients include (but not limited to!)
More peace with Health E-book created by Lexy, specifically for you!
An interactive e-book with over 30 meal/snack ideas; journal prompts designed to address your relationship with food, your body and health; grocery shopping/meal prep organizer; grocery list and more!
Food and Lifestyle Feedback
When we work together, we use Practice Better (a website and app) for booking appointments, taking payments and providing journal entries for food and lifestyle habit changes.
I may have you use the Practice Better Food and Mood Journal which allows you to upload pictures of your food (only if this is helpful) and rate hunger, fullness, emotion, and more. When you’re asked to complete journal entries, I will review it and provide you additional feedback and support between sessions.
Please keep in mind that any resources utilized in your plan are completely customized to your individual needs and preferences.
“I could not recommend Lexy enough… I was really struggling to get back to feeling my best after my second baby and she saved me! Because of her guidance, I now feel like I have the knowledge about my own body to refocus on my nutrition after getting off track.
Lexy is so knowledgeable and lovely to work with. It is obvious that she is passionate about helping other people feel their best. There is so much information floating around on the internet, social media, etc. and I was overwhelmed about what to do.
The plan Lexy came up with for me was not only to change the way I was eating, but also to remember to take time for myself and establish a regular exercise routine. I have SO much more energy, and feel great about what I am eating and how my body feels! I am able to be a better version of myself with my two little girls and husband because I’ve taken the time to take care of myself. Making my appointment was truly the best gift I could have given myself.
She checks in frequently and really makes you feel like a priority. Long story short, do yourself a favor and work with Lexy!”
Why don’t I offer pay-as-you-go sessions? Why the program format?
I used to, but found it wasn’t effective in helping people with real transformations. A session here and there isn’t enough (in my opinion and experience) to be able to learn, unlearn, discover, uncover, and create new habits, mindsets and sustain them. Through the years, I’ve found the above model to allow for more rapid, effective, meaningful growth. Instead of spending years waiting for results, my clients experience profound transformations in 3 months.
There is a necessary out of pocket cost whether you have Blue Cross/Harvard Pilgrim for insurance or not. If you have either of these insurance plans, we can utilize your insurance to pay for a portion of our work together, but there is still an out of pocket cost.
Insurance *typically* covers: face to face visits only (most plans cover telehealth as well during COVID19). I am in network with Blue Cross and Harvard Pilgrim only.
Insurance does NOT cover: outside session support, E-book, books and resources mailed to you, Healthie food/lifestyle feedback.
Payment plans available for clients as needed. FSA or HSA may be used for out of pocket cost.
