Hi! I’m Corinne Dobbas.
I’m a Food & Body Image Coach and Non-Diet Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition – who has spent nearly 10 years helping women take back their power from food, heal their body image issues, and reconnect with who they are as a WHOLE person.
One of my favorite things about what I do is helping clients FEEL good in their bodies and normal around food. And helping them know it’s never too late to be who they want to be – despite whatever they’ve been told or whatever they’ve tried before.
This goes for YOU too, you know.
So if you’re still with me here and wondering just who exactly I work with, first of all – yay! – second of all – let me answer that for you…
I work with women who want to break free from the diet-binge eating cycle because it’s exhausting, emotionally draining, and not working – PLUS it only makes you feel worse. I also work with clients with various levels of disordered eating and body image issues, women who want to exit the yo-yo, roller-coaster dieting world for good, but aren’t sure exactly how to do so (and usually are afraid to), and clients who want to approach nutrition and health through a non-diet, intuitive eating, self-care approach.
Note: if you’re not sure what this “approach” even means… No worries. You soon will. But for now, let me just say, it’s a way for you to make peace with your body and food and in turn, to start feeling better in your body, free around food, and more connected with yourself.
What wakes me up in the morning?
Helping clients to believe in themselves again, so they can start taking care of themselves, no matter what. No matter their jean size. No matter what they ate last night. And no matter what anyone else thinks.
But let’s be real, you can’t do any of that unless you believe you’re worth it. In other words, unless you believe in your own self-worth.
So that’s where our work begins.
Because when you believe in your own self-worth and you start respecting your body you start doing things to take care of yourself and your body – and you finally begin to feel better.
You start focusing on how you can be the best YOU you can be. You start thinking more about who are as a human being instead of who you are in a human body. So you start living MORE life, and you start cultivating the most important relationship of your life—the relationship with yourself.
This also means…You stop waiting for the number on the scale. You stop comparing yourself to everyone else. You stop the negative self-talk, body bashing, and obsessive food thoughts and food rules
You stop letting fear and doubt hold you back. You stop thinking you’re not good enough, pretty enough, or thin enough.
YOU realize you are enough.
You’re empowered to move forward.
You make peace with food.
You move your body out of love and respect.
You treat yourself with kindness.
You become your own best friend.
And you surround yourself with people who mirror where you want to go in your life.
Self-worth is a serious game changer.
So is this big, bold, BRAVE food and body image healing work. Because healing your relationship with food and your body, opens the doors for all other healings in your life… Because once you heal your food and body image issues… You allow yourself to live and be MORE.
I can tell you this not only because of how I’ve seen this work change the lives of my clients. But from my own personal experience.
Because to tell you the truth, I used to be an obsessive calorie counter and disordered eating, exercise addicted yo-yo dieter. I spent the better part of my young adulthood reading health magazines and trying every celebrity diet, because I thought being a certain size would finally make me feel better about myself. But it never worked. At my lowest weight, I was more miserable than ever.
My relationships were disconnected, I was so unhealthy, and I was driving myself crazy constantly thinking about what I “should” or “shouldn’t” eat.
That’s when it hit me: the number on the scale was never going to make me happy.
I needed to change from the inside out.
Today, I trust my body, eat what I want without guilt, and have deep connections that make me truly happy.
Wholeheartedly believing I was good enough and healing my relationship with food and my body literally changed my life. In the best ways possible.
It can change your life too.
