Becoming ARFID Certified: A Dedication to Understanding Food Aversion

This certification reflects their commitment to understanding and assisting individuals who struggle with extreme selective eating habits. ARFID is a complex condition that often goes unrecognized, but Michelle's certification demonstrates their dedication to helping those who may have been overlooked or misunderstood.

  • Increased Empathy: By deepening their understanding of ARFID, Michelle is better positioned to empathize with those who experience it. They can offer a more compassionate and effective approach to their journey towards healthier eating habits.

  • Breaking Stigmas: Raising awareness about ARFID and becoming certified in addressing it is an essential step in breaking the stigma associated with selective eating disorders. Michelle is actively contributing to a more inclusive and supportive environment for individuals with ARFID.

Intuitive Eating Certification: Embracing a Holistic Approach to Well-Being

In addition to ARFID certification, Michelle has also achieved certification in Intuitive Eating. This approach empowers individuals to develop a healthier relationship with food by listening to their body's cues and fostering a positive attitude towards eating.

Why Intuitive Eating Certification Matters:

  • A Holistic Approach: Intuitive eating goes beyond dieting or rigid food rules. Michelle's certification in this approach allows them to guide clients in embracing a holistic way of nourishing their bodies and minds.

  • Mind-Body Connection: Intuitive eating focuses on the mind-body connection, teaching individuals to trust their body's hunger and fullness cues. This empowers clients to make food choices that align with their unique needs.

  • Embracing Joyful Eating: With intuitive eating, Michelle can help individuals rediscover the joy of eating. By developing a positive relationship with food, clients can experience less stress and guilt surrounding their meals.

Michelle's dual certification in ARFID and Intuitive Eating represents a powerful combination, equipping them to support clients with diverse needs on their journey to healthier relationships with food.
