Apply for your free call

Hey! I’m so excited you’re here. Before you get started, I want to honor the fact that you are taking time out of your day to fill out this form. It shows that you are ready to face your fears around this process and find help in your healing. Considering most people run away at this step (which is also TOTALLY okay and just a sign that they aren’t ready yet), finishing this form is a huge win that should not be taken lightly.

For more info about how this all works and the types of clients I frequently work with, click on the plus signs in each box below. 

How it works

To apply for a call, please fill out the form below (~5-10 mins) so that I can get to know you before we talk. This is not a guarantee that we will work together 1:1, it’s simply a screening process to see if we are a good fit. I will review your answers and contact you within 2-3 business days. If you don’t hear from me within that time frame, I may be traveling or catching up on other work, so do not worry! I respond to every single application so you will hear from me soon! 

The free 60-minute call is our chance to dive deep on one of the areas you need coaching and guidance around. This is my gift to you so that even if we don’t work together long-term, you walk away with support and insight. If by the end of the session, we both feel that working together 1:1 feels right, I am happy to answer any questions you have and discuss next steps. If not, I’m here to support you however I can!

If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to email my team at support@whitneycatalano.com. I can’t wait to talk to you!

Do you relate to any of these clients?

I work with people at all stages of their food freedom & confidence journies. Below are some examples of the types of clients I work with in case you recognize yourself in any of these stories. If you don’t see one that resonates with you, don’t fret! Apply for a clarity call below so we can get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit.

#1. You've been dieting or trying to control your weight for most of your life...

…either because your parents were yo-yo dieters and you learned from them… or because your family pressured you to diet and taught you to hate your body from a young age. You likely know that dieting doesn’t work (even if you still feel like a failure) and you can’t stand the idea of spending one more day diet/binge cycling, but you have no idea how to listen to your body and you’re terrified to fully trust yourself. Your insecurities and lack of self-trust have been getting in the way of your life for far too long and you’re finally ready to heal.

#1b. You logically understand food freedom but you don't know how to embody it

I’m throwing this one at the end of #1 because it’s something I hear ALL the time. If you started on your intuitive eating or food freedom journey solo, reading as many books and listening to as many podcasts as you could find for information, you may still hit a wall when it comes to putting the information to practice. Embodying food freedom is tricky because it requires you to bypass your terrified-of-change-fight-or-flight-brain on a daily basis, all while your inner bully is trying to convince you that this is never going to work. I’m here to guide you and help you make sense of it all so that you can get all that mental space back quickly.

#2. You're healing from weight stigma & motivated by fat activism and HAES

After a lifetime of dieting, body shame, weight stigma, and shrinking yourself (in every sense), you’ve stumbled upon body positivity / HAES and you finally feel like there’s a place for you. This is a continuation of #1, and yet also deserves its own paragraph because your motivations are unique. You probably have a LOT of questions and skepticism (understandably so), like “how do I know this thin girl is safe?” or “how can I trust that this isn’t just dieting in disguise?” Maybe you’re wondering if I’m actually educated about intersectional feminism and fat activism, or if I’m just jumping on the #bopo bandwagon while simultaneously setting a weight limit for my politics. If this is you, I’m going to say what I tell everyone in your position: there will be a lot of body healing that I can’t personally understand or help you with because of my body privilege, and that’s okay. I’m really good at the parts I can help you with, and I’m really good at making sure my clients have a game plan for continuing their healing after our work is done. If you book the call and decide that we’re not a good fit, that’s okay too.

#3. Your insecurities are getting in the way of your dreams

You’re hardworking, driven, and you intuitively feel like you’re meant to make a big impact on the world, but your insecurities, obsession with diet, and low self-esteem are getting in the way. You are far too familiar with the phrase, “when I lose weight, I will…” but how many years have you been waiting for a pant size to validate you? How many hours have you spent obsessing about food and trying new tricks to “fix” your body instead of pursuing your goals? How many promotions or opportunities have you passed up because you didn’t feel like you deserved it? If this is you, I want you to take a second and ask yourself this: “if I woke up tomorrow in the body I’ve always dreamed about, would I actually feel confident enough to do the things I want to do?” When you’re filling out the application below, tell me what you’re being called to do and how you answered this question. I can’t wait to support you.

#4. You found me after leaving OA

You found me almost on accident after leaving Overeaters Anonymous (OA) and falling down the intuitive eating / HAES rabbit hole online. You likely don’t know if I’ll be able to help, but you know you can’t go back to OA and you don’t know where else to turn. My clients who have come from years in OA often say the same thing during their clarity calls… “There are a lot of amazing things I got from OA, especially the community support aspect, but I’m tired of the rigidity and constantly feeling like I’m a failure for not being able to resist food.” If that resonates with you, please know that you are not a failure. Food is not addictive in the same way that drugs and alcohol are addictive, so the 12 steps don’t apply here. Letting go of the rigidity is a scary process, but every client who has done it would tell you that it’s worth it. 

#5. You've been to ED treatment or started IE on your own, but now you're stuck

Whether you’ve been to ED treatment or embarked on your Intuitive Eating journey solo after years of dieting, you have this gut feeling that your relationship with food or your body isn’t as healthy as it could be. Maybe you struggle with black-and-white thinking, or you still feel at war with your mind even though your relationship with food is better. Maybe you feel lonely and insecure in a lot of areas of your life, or you’re coming up on a major life change and need some support managing stress & insecurities without falling back into old patterns.

Whatever you’re struggling with, know that you absolutely deserve a full recovery. ED recovery can be very overwhelming, so whether you got professional ED treatment or self-healed with books and online forums, it’s perfectly normal to need even deeper healing once you’ve had a chance to rest and reassess.

#6. You want to be a HAES / anti-diet provider

You’re an aspiring HAES / anti-diet dietitian, therapist, or health care provider and you know you need to heal your relationship with food before you can help others. Trust me, I’ve been there. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my peers and fellow professionals guiding me every step of the way. Our coaching work will be unique – a combination of healing and learning so that you can immediately start using these tools. I know it feels scary to admit to another professional that you need help (hello imposter syndrome and fear of getting caught). The truth is – asking for help so that you can heal and teach others from your scars, not your open wounds, is the most ethical way to go about this. The fact that you care shows your true intentions.

#7. You're managing multiple conditions while healing

You identify with any of the previous examples while also learning to manage a chronic disease or mental health condition. I frequently work with clients who are diagnosed with OCD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, autoimmune diseases, PCOS, and hypothyroidism. To ensure that our work remains within my scope of practice, I would encourage you to continue seeing your regular therapists and specialty health care providers for condition-specific support so that we can integrate that information into a healthy and easy relationship with food.

#8. You're about to go through a major life change

When you’re on the cusp of a big life change, you may feel a deep sense of discomfort and confusion. Old patterns pop back up, familiar feelings resurface out of nowhere, and it can feel like the body is closed for construction as you prepare for the next phase. For whatever reason, many people who find my coaching unconsciously do so right before huge life changes (good or bad), which allows us to use the chaos of unknown to illuminate areas that need healing. In life change coaching, I’m there holding your hand as you lean into trusting yourself and surrendering control. You’ll come out of this coaching experience with the tools and self-awareness to step into this next phase as the highest version of yourself.

How a client changed her life…

“I cannot believe how much space my ‘diet culture’ thinking took up! I no longer track my food, look at food as good/bad, but more importantly, this work has created so much more space in my life to actually enjoy things again.

“I feel food freedom, and after 25yrs of dieting, I never understood how that could be possible.”

– Sarah, 45

“Working with you involved questioning so much of what I had been brought up to believe in diet culture about my body and food. This process can be uncomfortable and difficult but is so worth it to achieve food freedom

“Whitney coaches with a firm but loving hand and preaches forgiveness and self-love above all else. I am immensely grateful for the tools she’s given me to acknowledge the signals my body sends me.”

– Cheyenne, 24
