Season 4 :Episode 3   Food Extremes: All or Nothing at All 

In today’s episode of  You Are Not Your Trauma™,  we discuss how sometimes, our past hurts end up shaping our relationship with food in ways we don’t even realize. Joined by guest Melissa Rohlfs, our conversation sheds light on the emotional ties that lead to compulsive eating behaviors and offers a hope for those seeking to create a nourishing relationship with food. 

Melissa is a certified holistic health and life coach with a profound dedication to assisting individuals in breaking free from the struggle with food. With a personal history that mirrors the challenges many of our listeners face, she brings not only professional expertise but also deep empathy to our discussion. Her approach integrates the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of healing, offering a comprehensive pathway out of food addiction.

Melissa Rohlfs is a certified holistic health and life coach helping busy moms and teen girls find freedom from the struggle with food, so they can be at peace with food, their bodies and their lives. She is committed to empowering women to break free from dieting, emotional eating and self-image issues so they can ditch the diet mentality, and feel empowered in their own skin.

After her own tumultuous history with food {withholding and then later in life, binging}, she learned how to deal with the core issues around her broken relationship with food. As a result, she felt called to go to school and learn to teach other women how to do the same. She graduated from the Health Coach Institute as a Holistic Health and Life Coach in 2018 and is the proud owner of Free 2 B Coaching. She is a proud Purdue alumna living in Arizona with her husband, Chad and two kiddos.
