Meet Tricia

Tricia Nelson is an internationally acclaimed author, transformational TEDx speaker and Emotional Eating Expert.

Tricia has successfully helped thousands of people heal their relationship with food.

Born and raised in Concord, Massachusetts, Tricia’s own struggles began in early childhood, where she attempted to cope with life’s stresses and emotional pain by overeating and other destructive behaviors. Continuing into adolescence, she began binge drinking, and eventually gained more than 50 pounds. After years of experimentation with 12-step programs, therapy and self-help books, Tricia finally hit a spiritual and emotional bottom.

Tricia attended Amherst College and began her career working at the Seattle Art Museum. While in Seattle she began working with spiritual healer who helped her recognize and heal the root causes of her addictions. By creating a lifestyle steeped in positive self-care, self-love and improved self-esteem, Tricia was able to stop drinking and overeating. She has maintained a fifty-pound weight loss for over 30 years now.

Tricia has spent the past three decades studying the addictive personality, and shares her findings in programs, workshops and retreats online. Many doctors, psychologists and other health practitioners benefit from her insight about what drives people to overeat and how to stop.

Meet Our Coaches

The coaches in our Heal Your Hunger Family have each experienced healing in their relationship with food through the HYH programs. They now support others on the HYH path.

Laura Wilhelm

When I came to Heal Your Hunger, I was grumpy and had a short tempter because I was unhappy with myself. I was a dentist with my own practice, and my employees kept quitting on account of my perfectionism.  Thanks to this program, I’m not that way anymore. Sometimes it’s hard to believe it when people tell me I’m kind, patient and lovely to be around! And, I’ve been able to lose weight and keep it off. I love being a mentor in the HYH program because healing doesn’t happen overnight, and we need support every step of the way.

Tsilah Burman

My life has been changed on account of this program. Not only have I shed the person I was: hard on myself, critical of others, controlling and lonely, but I have been blessed to lose 100 pounds and keep it off for over a decade. Nothing brings me more joy than being able to coach the HYH women and guide them on their path of freedom. To see the HYH principles start to “click” for these women, and to see them begin to change, in every way, is such a joy. NO one can overcome this condition on their own. So we do this in community and with coaching. It makes all the difference and making lasting changes.

Susan Imhoff

Heal Your Hunger changed my life. I’ve lost weight, I’m in better shape (at age 75) than I’ve ever been, and my joints no longer ache because I am not binging on sugar. Not only that, but my relationship with my husband is better because of this program. I love being a mentor for others that are on their HYH journey, because it gives me a chance to be helpful, and to watch women awaken to the true person they were meant to be.

Kim Hamer

Imagine...feeling so good that you wouldn’t want to ruin that experience by feeling stuffed with food. That’s what’s possible with Heal Your Hunger. I love the person I am today, because of the steps I’ve taken in this beautiful healing journey.  And I love playing a small role in helping other women heal their relationship with food, and with themselves in Heal Your hunger.

Pat Heys

I spent 50 years trying to find peace around food. I was up and down the scale and, even when I was thin, I wasn’t at peace. It wasn’t until I walked this HYH path that I was able to finally stop struggling with food and weight. It’s been several years now, and I’m fortunate to be able to be a coach in this program, so I can show other women how they can experience the same freedom. Freedom is our birthright, after all.
