Help-for-Emotional-EatingEmotional eating is one of the most common challenges our clients deal with on a day to day basis! On one hand, emotional connections to food are woven into the fabric of human existence. On the other hand, food is a readily accessible way to manage emotions quickly–soothe them, or shove them down.
