Hi, I'm Marissa !
After spending many months in and out of hospital and clinically intimidating therapy rooms, I felt that there must be something better for individuals in Recovery from an eating disorder.
I also knew that i needed to go on my own compassionate journey to wellness that didn't involve obsessing about weight, Calories, strict routines and numbers.
Aside from learning everything I possibly could about Psychology, Nutrition, Counselling and Health at university, the real progress was made outside the classroom.
I reclaimed back my life through practicing self compassion, social connection, yoga, practically challenging all of my fear foods, travelling, expressing creativity and understanding the value of peer support from someone who really knows what eating disorders and the recovery process feels and looks like.
I believe that we can all be experts by experience in our own recovery, and I invite you to take a journey with me to reclaim back your own recovery journey and ultimately your life
With my passion for Nourishing Routes and sharing its message across the globe through my book, public speaking and coaching, I am finally able to live life to the fullest.
I love to empower as many individuals as possible to find their own Self-compassionate Journey to reclaiming their own recovery through being able to:
Adore Your Body
Nourishing Routes refers to a compassionate, lifelong journey where we can view health and wellbeing as something much more meaningful and beautiful than the exact nutrients we eat, what we weigh, or the amount of exercise we carry out.
" Being nourished is not solely something we can
directly attain from energy or nutrients in food –
I believe that there is a much more
exciting adventure to be explored "
" Through peer mentoring, advocacy and teaching yoga, I have a mission to help empower individuals and communities to lead a more compassionate lifestyle -
without being held back by a
with food and body "
