Get To Know Tricia
Tricia Nelson is an internationally acclaimed author, transformational speaker and emotional eating expert. She has been featured on dozens of radio and television networks, including FOX, NBC, CBS, KTLA and Discovery Health.
Tricia has successfully helped hundreds of people overcome a variety of eating disorders and addictions.
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, Roy Nelson (who would later become her husband), 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 close to 30 years now.
Tricia has spent the past three decades studying the addictive personality, and shares her findings in workshops and retreats both in person and online. Many doctors, psychologists and other health practitioners benefit from her insight about what drives people to overeat and how to stop.
Tricia’s new book, Heal Your Hunger: 7 Simple Steps to End Emotional Eating Now, is available through Amazon.
