Reviews from Sally's
Food & Mood class:
"My spouse and I took this class together and it has led to much healthier food choices and good, open discussions about food in our home."
"The group was very beneficial to me. If nothing else it provided a time for some reflection and intentionality with my relationship to food. Sally created a very safe, nonjudgemental environment where I really felt comfortable looking into my own behaviors and relationships toward food. I learned some very useful information, but was not overwhelmed by the amount. I would recommend this group to anyone who wishes to examine their relationship to food in a more meaningful way."
"This class provided a comfortable and safe space to discuss an extremely sensitive and often emotionally loaded topic. I've already recommended it to friends."
