Freedom from overeating and emotional eating is waiting for you.
My coaching and online program will show you the way.

Are you a smart, busy woman who's ready to make peace with food and create freedom from overeating and emotional eating?

You're in the right place.

Overeating and emotional eating traps are common traps for savvy, busy, high-performing women. If you're smart and successful and yet you're still struggling with overeating or emotional eating, you are not alone.

If you're frustrated with yo-yo weight loss and weight gain, endlessly "starting over" on Monday, or the frustration, self-blame, guilt, and shame that are taking a toll on your confidence, I'm glad you're here.

If you've lost your belief in your ability to create lasting results; if you're tired of feeling ineffective, depriving yourself, or working so hard (with minimal results), we need to talk.

You aren't lazy and you don't need more willpower.

What you need is a strategic plan for tackling the reasons you're overeating.

Imagine a life where you've lost the cravings and no longer have the urge to overeat.

A life where you've left behind the plans that left you feeling hungry, frustrated, and unsuccessful. Where you no longer have to "control" your eating, because you've made peace with food and you've broken the cycles with overeating and emotional eating that stole so much of your time, energy, and confidence. Tackling Hidden Hungers (which have nothing to do with food) is almost always the essential first step.

Take my Hidden Hungers Quiz to identify your dominant Hidden Hunger and your best path out of the overeating maze. Find out what you're really hungry for (probably not food!).

As an added bonus, receive tips, strategies, and updates.

Dr. Melissa McCreery

Emotional Eating & Overeating Expert

I'm Dr. Melissa McCreery. I'm a clinical psychologist and the author of The Emotional Eating Rescue Plan for Smart, Busy Women. My clients don't win struggles with food, they end them - so that they can spend their time and energy on the things that matter most. 

I've spent more than twenty-five years helping women lose their overeating habits, and it all starts with Hidden Hungers. These non-food Hidden Hungers make cravings worse, food more tempting, and when they aren't addressed, make it next-to-impossible to stop at just one taste or one serving. If you aren't targeting these five hungers (that aren't about food), no weight loss program or healthy lifestyle change has a fighting chance to be successful.

Melissa McCreery's work has been a game-changer for me. After decades of struggles with overeating, she has helped me to understand how to identify, turn towards and meet my unmet needs (what she calls the 'hidden hungers', and finally the urge to overeat is falling away. If you struggle with overeating - with overwhelm, self-criticism, perfectionism - then I recommend Melissa wholeheartedly.

I'm losing weight and saw very significant improvements in my cholesterol and blood sugar levels in only three months! Melissa is helping me get my "life" back! I have never before worked with someone who is so perfectly attuned to busy women and women who have been very successful in their lives. Quite frankly, Melissa knows precisely what makes us tick!

Life's too short to spend it struggling with food. I can help you leave the hamster wheel behind.
