My name is Laureen Merrill and I am an Eating Psychology Coach and an Undoctored Health Empowerment Coach. I was trained and certified by The Institute For The Psychology Of Eating, founded by Marc David, author of "The Slow Down Diet".  I am also trained and certified by the Undoctored Health Empowerment Professional Development Program, developed by Dr. William Davis, author of the "Wheat Belly" book series, and the new "Undoctored" and "Super Gut" books.  To add to my healing strategies, I also became a Norwex Independent Consultant. This is a way to clean your homes and bodies safely and sustainably without the use of toxic cleaning chemicals, wasteful, expensive paper towels and toxic body care ingredients. It's time to detox!

Offering a unique, cutting edge approach to your eating challenges is my passion.  My approach uses a dynamic eating psychology and mind body nutrition perspective.  This approach goes far beyond just "eat this way, and exercise that way", which does not work for people.  I too have struggled with MANY eating and health issues, so I can relate to a lot of challenges that you may be going through.  As an eating psychology coach, I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable and sustainable. 

We are unique individuals and it took us many years to get to where we are as eaters.  It will take a bit of time to "peel back the onion" and get to the root causes of your challenges, but it is possible in this very unique way of coaching.  There is no cookie cutter approach to our health and weight issues. By working together in a personal, one on one, completely confidential relationship, I can help you figure out the causes of your concerns.  Binge eating, over eating, overweight, weight hate, body image, digestion, fatigue, immunity, autoimmunity, perimenopause and menopause are just some examples.  Can you relate to any of these issues?  Let's figure it out together!


I work with both men and women of all ages, to help improve and perhaps eliminate eating and health issues.  There really is a psychology to eating and eating challenges. There is a world of hurt going on out there, and I am passionate about helping those in need of guidance, providing you genuine care and compassion for your emotional process, and helping you figure out "what's up" with all of your eating, health and emotional concerns.  I care about this world's increasing health epidemic, from obesity to type 2 diabetes (now known as "Diabesity") and I want to help anyone who desires to improve their physical, emotional and spiritual well being.  I am available in person locally, by phone, or Zoom sessions to help people from all over the world. I would love to hear from you, and help you take that first step into healing your mind, body and spirit!

Have you been dieting for years?   How has that been working for  you?  "Dieting" does not sustain us.  It does not honor us, nor does it serve us in the manner that our body, mind and spirit deserve.  We have to eat to survive, so why not honor our bodies with wonderful nutrition, and not only survive, but thrive!

Toxic Nutritional Beliefs:

"Fat in my food = fat on my body"

"If I eat less and exercise more, I will get the body I've always wanted"

"If I lose X amount of pounds, people will love me and it will lead me to happiness"

It's time to kick these and other toxic beliefs to the curb!​   I can help!​

Science has shown us repeatedly that the old weight loss advice to simply diet and exercise doesn’t work. So, why do we keep teaching this? Join a movement of health coaches changing how we talk about food & body.  

I turned my passion for health into a career. I wasn’t expecting this Training to transform my own life as much as it did. Eating Psychology is making some big waves in the nutrition field. If you’re looking into health coaching, I highly recommend this online course.
