Jul 10, 2023

In this empowering episode, we dive into the transformative journey of Trish Hunter, a mental health counselor who shares the intersection of faith, mental health and eating.  She now helps others overcome challenges around food.

Trish, an accomplished former elementary school teacher and school counselor, shares her personal experiences, beginning from her childhood and the profound impact of her mother's passing.  Trish is the recipient of the Shades of Green award for going above and beyond in her community as a mental health counselor.  

We explore the generational issues that often affect women in their midlife years, shaping their physical and mental well-being. Trish shows us the power of self-awareness and the profound effect our thoughts can have on regaining control over our lives.

Trish's philosophy is a powerful one: You can have both spirituality and professional support, while also nourishing your body through healthy eating. Learn how Trish maintains her own well-being and guides others to break free from feelings of condemnation, shame, and guilt associated with food.

Throughout this episode, Trish shares compelling quotes that resonate deeply, including her own mantra: "If I don't learn how to eat to live, I'm going to die eating." These words sparked a shift in her perspective on eating and served as a reminder of the importance of developing a comprehensive plan, rather than relying solely on diets, especially during challenging times.

Join us as we explore strategies to gain control over our thoughts and emotions, uncovering the power within ourselves to heal our relationship with food. Discover how to navigate stress and defeat, learning to overcome setbacks on the path to wellness. Trish provides valuable insights on incorporating positive affirmations into our lives, fostering self-compassion and improving our self-image.
