We all have difficult moments in our lives. Suffering with headaches, heartaches, feelings of sadness, fear, loneliness, confusion, depletion, or overwhelm, we may turn to food in an effort to replenish, comfort, or numb ourselves.
Join Self-Care Collaborator Amy Tuttle, RD, LCSW to learn how the mindful process of KAR-ing and Four Mindful Questions™ can help you and your clients respond (instead of react) to suffering.

Amy Tuttle, RD, LCSW has spent the last 25 years making amends for being one of those preachy good-food/bad-food dietitians who tells people how to lose weight. Her work now as a Self-Care Collaborator™ is informed by her experience as a mindfulness meditation teacher, an eating disorder nutrition therapist, and a Health-at-Every-Size® proponent.
Amy developed Nourishing Aliveness® mindfulness-based no-diet programs to help people recover from dieting and emotional eating, repair body despair, restore self- and body trust, and rediscover what matters most. In addition to offering individual and groups sessions, Amy provides mindful adventures in creativity, self-care, and self-acceptance through Art-full & Heart-full Workshops and the Shooting Star Self-Care Camp.
Being able to offer these experiences and self-care support services fulfills Amy’s main intentions in developing the Nourishing Aliveness programs—to enhance health and well-being, create community, and generate joy-fullness.
