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

Are you tired of your relationship with food taking up so much time, energy, and space in your brain?

As a smart woman who makes things happen, this may have you feeling defeated. You've created amazing success - except in this one place in your life. How frustrated are you with yo-yo weight loss and weight gain? Endlessly "starting over" on Monday? The frustration, self-blame, guilt, and even shame can take a toll on your confidence, and even how you show up in the world?

You might not know that overeating and emotional eating are common traps for busy, successful women. 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), you're in in the right place.

You’re not lazy, and you don’t need more willpower or more hard things to do. 

What solves the problem is a strategic approach paired with the support and guidance that allows you to create real, lasting freedom from overeating and emotional eating.

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.

Dr. Melissa McCreery

Emotional Eating & Overeating Expert

I know what it’s like to feel like overeating is going to be your “forever issue.” And I also know that peace with food and freedom – real freedom – from overeating are entirely possible. I’m Dr. Melissa McCreery. I’m a clinical psychologist and the author of The Emotional Eating Rescue Plan for Smart, Busy Women. I’ve spent the last twenty-five years helping successful high-performers create the results they want – without going hungry, depriving themselves, or pushing themselves in unsustainable ways. The secret? It’s my blend of psychology, neuroscience, high-performance strategy, and a non-diet approach to food. New habits don’t work (or stick) without up-leveling your thoughts, your beliefs, and your relationship with yourself. And nothing works if you’re not leveraging “forever strategies,” motivation techniques, and approaches.

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 to them.

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!

Since I began working with Dr. McCreery a year ago, I have increased my income substantially, still attend all of my children’s school events and sporting matches, my house is more organized than it has ever been … I am finally happy in my body. I have lost about 30 pounds, I eat whatever I want, stop when I am no longer hungry, and most importantly, the obsessions are gone. Gone are the mornings promising that I am finally going to be “good”, gone are the nights reprimanding myself for everything I did wrong, gone is the constant decision making about what to eat and when to stop.

Most other programs are 90% about what and how to eat and tend to make you feel totally deprived - something most of us don’t need at all. Your Missing Peace is a completely different approach. I think any woman who struggles with weight issues needs to do this program because you need to know that you can be empowered instead of following a regiment and you can get off the dieting hamster wheel.

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