About Me

KimberlyAnn Smith

What inspired me to become a Certified Mind Body Eating Coach was my own personal journey with food, health, and body image. In the past, I stopped moving forward with my life by isolating myself, for I had the belief that I would become truly happy and authentic only after I had the health and body that I wanted. When I began applying the basic principles of both Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition, my life grew and expanded. My body began to heal. I learned how to slow down, to love and accept myself the way I am. As a result, I have a passion to help others find the relevant connections between their own eating challenges and the personal dimensions that impact their food, weight, and health. Using my own experience and training, my clients and I work together to positively transform their relationship with food and body in order to reach their highest goals in life.

What is My Training?

I trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology, where I received my certification in Mind Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology. In IPE's internationally acclaimed program, I learned powerful cutting-edge tools and protocols that enable me to work with weight issues, body image challenges, overeating, binge eating, and a variety of nutrition-related health concerns, such as digestion, fatigue, mood, immunity, and others. My work combines the powerful fields of Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition. The skills I use from this training are a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.

What do I do as a Certified Coach in
Mind Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology?

I help creative women break free from chronic health and eating challenges caused by unresolved grief and emotional pain to heal from the inside out. The Coaching I have been trained in is an exciting and cutting edge approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition related health concerns. My approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating challenges merely as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight, and health. Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress, and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved. I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that yield results.

Dynamic Eating Psychology

What is Dynamic Eating Psychology?

Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It’s a positive, empowering, and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight, and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, eating psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology, though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight, and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more. Dynamic Eating Psychology is a powerful breakthrough approach.

Mind Body Nutrition

What is Mind Body Nutrition?

Mind Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Mind Body Nutrition goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing, and much more can profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. This approach offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times. © Institute for the Psychology of Eating, www.psychologyofeating.com ​

Are you a chronic dieter, getting nowhere?
Do you have body image challenges?
Do you have weight challenges?
Is your energy level low?
Do you overeat or binge eat?
Do you experience digestive issues?
Do you have other food and body issues?
Are you not living the life you were meant to live?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, you are not alone nor do you have to travel on this journey on your own.

I would love to help you transform your relationship with food and body because, oftentimes, information alone is not enough to solve our food, body, and health challenges.
