Hey there! Let me take a guess at why you’re here…

Does it have to do with feeling like you’re controlled by food cravings + emotional eating patterns and unconfident in your body?

If the answer is yes, I can help. Let’s start with a fun little quiz (check all that apply).

 
 

I'm here because I...

 
  1. Feel controlled by my food cravings and can't figure out how to stop eating throughout the day, which roadblocks any project that I'm working on.
  2. Secretly binge at my desk or find myself stress eating more often than I'd like to.
  3. Get so busy with work and my to-do list during the day that I forget to eat and often binge when I get home.
  1. Travel frequently and can't find a realistic way to make healthy living work on the road.
  2. Work from home and have gained 10+ lbs because my routine is so all over the place. I'm also scared of my pantry and live in yoga pants to avoid seeing how my skinny jeans fit these days.
 
 

GOOD NEWS, love!
If any or all of the above apply, you’re in the right place. There is no wrong answer.

I'm Katelyn Parsons, Certified Holistic Health Coach.

and I’ve been right where you are.

I help career-focused women ditch their cravings + emotional eating patterns and increase body confidence without relying on a short-term diet.

I love supporting women like you. We’re actually probably very similar...career motivated, family/friend oriented, constantly adding to our bucket lists. You probably have a few too many cocktails more often than you’d like because you value living in the moment and having fun. Well at least I do. :p

My personal dieting dilemma...

So let me take you back to my 11-year-old self… scrunchies, mini back packs and all. I’d just dipped my toes into the dieting pond that was slowly turning into a sinkhole.

After realizing that my JNCO jeans were a size bigger than my best friends, I grabbed my American Girl Body Book and decided to make some changes.

Little did I know that my innocent attempt with cutting back on the Doritos, would lead to a 15-year battle of restricting, binging, purging, hiding food, lying.... praying every night that I'd wake up the next morning and be able to "stick" to my diet for good this time.

If you feel like you're holding your head above water, trying to do all of the "things" that will switch off your food addiction + constant cravings, I'm here to help.

First! I want you to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Because I certainly never saw it when I was crying in my closet or on the bathroom floor.

The vicious cycle around my food cravings + chronic dieting patterns took up a large majority of my life until I finally decided that enough was enough in my mid-20s. I made a choice that my bucket list was way too long to constantly feel controlled by food... I was hiding snacks at my desk, secretly eating from lunch into the evening. I’d even sneak food in my purse and binge on the way back to my apartment.

I felt like an addict: completely disconnected from myself, my friends and my precious family… not to mention the noticeable damage I’d done on my teeth from the bulimia.

I was terrified of what the road would lead to if I didn’t make a change.

Back then, Health Coaches weren’t really a thing. If only!! And I knew that this wasn’t just about letting go of dieting — there was some serious emotional work that needed to be done in order to make a permanent change.

It was a long road, but I’m forever grateful to the makeshift team that got me through that time. I invested in multiple therapists, resources, opened up to loved ones and really did a deep dive into researching how to use food as medicine + joy… as opposed to abuse + self-harm.

When I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, after years of healing, I knew that I was on the path to find my purpose.

Since graduating as a Certified Holistic Health Coach, I’ve opened up my own private practice and work with high-achieving women all around the country who are fed up with feeling controlled by their cravings + emotional eating patterns. I support them every step of the way into a new life where the sky is the limit and food is no longer the focus.

It’s hard to put into words how much I love the work that I do. And I still can’t believe that my personal journey led me here… it’s crazy how life always has a way of coming full-circle when you connect the dot’s.

If you’re reading this and feeling like I’m writing for you, I am.

Life is waiting to be lived in bigger ways than you can even imagine.

And I’m here to help you get there.

There IS a way to feel empowered around food and not controlled by cravings, yo-yo dieting patterns or binge eating. If you’re ready to see how, I can’t encourage you enough to reach out. I know it’s not an easy step to take, but it’s one that will change your life. I’ve got you, love.

And in the meantime, if you need some time to think- I created this for you…

It’s a powerful step and will help you save time trying to figure out how to stock your kitchen for simple, energizing meals that reduce cravings.
