Emotional Eating Coaching | Private Coaching with Dr. Melissa McCreery

When you are overwhelmed, overloaded, and overeating, you know there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

So why are you still looking for one?

My premium emotional eating coaching program has been designed to give you one on one support and a customized approach to your success.

Like you, I believe your success – and that includes your health and your happiness and your comfort in your clothes – is personal. It depends on you discovering what makes you most effective, what you truly want to create, and how you want to be and feel.

This is Your Life and you don’t want to spend the rest of it gritting your teeth and relying on willpower and determination. You also don’t want to spend it in regret, guilt, or frustration because you haven’t been able to succeed with the things that mean the most to you personally.

There are so many items on your to-do list. And there is also you. When you’re ready to break free of the habits and ways of thinking that are holding you back (like overeating or emotional eating, procrastinating, perfectionism, or putting everything else ahead of you), when you’re ready to give you the attention you deserve, you are in a place where many high-achievers benefit from the support and guidance of working with a coach one on one.

My 1:1 private emotional eating coaching program is designed to support you on this journey with tools, strategies, and expertise to help you create a personalized plan for the success you crave. This is not another program with rules about what to eat or what you “should” be doing. This is an experience where we get to the heart of why the “shoulds” haven’t worked and what you and your complicated life require to really nurture success, results, and ultimately a life that works better for you and supports you in your goals.

I help people who are probably a lot like you.

  • You are someone who creates results in your life.
  • You’re smart and you may juggle a lot – because there is a lot in life that is important to you.
  • You’ve got high standards for yourself, and in just about every other area, you achieve what you set out to (this is part of why the places where you struggle can feel so frustrating).
  • You tend to think and dream big – you’re not afraid of hard work, but sometimes you get tired or stressed or overwhelmed and you’re not sure of the next best step.
  • Your life is complex and you know you deserve (and crave) better than a cookie cutter solution.
  • You want long term lasting results – you’re not looking for a band aid. You can see the things that haven’t worked and you’re ready to get off the hamster wheel and step into a different way of doing things.
  • Although you might not see exactly how it’s possible, you’d love to find an easier way of being so you could eat less, stress less, feel more purposeful and in charge of your life.

You’re great at figuring things out on your own. You’re motivated, driven, and perceptive. But you’re also ready for a new level of support, from an expert, psychologist, and emotional eating coach who can help you clear out the static, focus on what works, help you get out of your own way, and back in the driver’s seat. It’s possible that you can talk circles around yourself and convince everyone else you’ve got it under control (this is a big trap for smart, high-achievers). You’d like someone who can see your game and hold you to what you really want and deserve for yourself.

“If you had asked me a year ago where I was with feelings about food and my body, I would have told you that so much of my energy was focused towards an obsession with food and my body. I would have told you that I didn’t have the ability to be truly present because I was either thinking about what I ate, what I planned to eat, how much I disliked my body, thinking that if only I could get a handle on my eating, everything in my life would improve.

I had lost weight through dieting at different points in my life, but it never stayed off. The diets were so strict that the pursuit for “diet perfection” (which led to the short lived weight loss),when not perfect, led to full derailment, binging, and then ultimate weight gain.

Something has changed. First, the concept that diets don’t work, has changed my thinking. No food is off limits. If nothing is off limits, no food needs to be coveted, craved, or secretly eaten…
I am a full time financial advisor and mother of two. 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.” J.


Let’s channel your effort and your amazing strengths into the easiest, best path to success for you.

Are you overeating, emotional eating, or struggling with weight you can’t lose?

I’ll help you identify the missing pieces to this puzzle and we’ll put a plan in place that takes the emphasis off willpower and deprivation.

Do you crave a way to take better care of yourself or get back on your own priority list?

My clients often find that the work we do to get this piece of their life working again (or for the first time) is the magic that changes everything.

Have you delayed making a change that you know it’s time to make?

I help my clients move forward by keeping things do-able and testing the waters strategically in ways that may seem small at first but can have a big impact.

Does it sometimes feel like your schedule is running you and you can’t figure out how to get traction?

You’re not alone. I help my smart, busy clients break free of overwhelm and overload and find more ease and joy and fun in their lives.

“Food is no longer such a coping mechanism for me. Feeling full of other things means I can let go of having to always have food. I don’t feel deprived at all. My eating is very different already. I haven’t had cravings and I am allowing myself to eat anything I feel like eating . . . And yes, I have lost 5 pounds this week, without trying. . . I ate as much as I wanted, and then stopped, and I felt completely in control.” – M.


You want success AND you don’t need more stress, struggle, or a bunch of stuff you dread on your to-do list.

In our coaching work you’ll start by learning that big results don’t require overwhelming action.

You’ll be:

  • Making moves that transform and grow your life instead of leave you feeling hungry, tired, and deprived.
  • Focusing on core actions that get you closer to your goals.
  • Using what you know about yourself (and some strategies I’ll teach you) to get unstuck and excited to take action.
  • Really feeding yourself in ways that have nothing to do with food – and in ways that cause food to lose the power that it has in your life.
  • Feeling confident in your plans and their outcomes.
  • Seeing the small changes that can yield big results (with more ease).
  • Creating plans to achieve what you want—not what everyone else wants.
  • Letting go of guilt, shame, or self-blame and seeing how it makes you more effective, energetic, and successful.

You can create a life that truly feeds you and take the power back from food and stress.

Right now the food issue feels very much like a non-issue. I’m not turning to food when I get stressed. . . I started a new program to control the beginnings of diabetes. Oh what a difference after our work together! I’m able to follow the plan with no problems and no desire for any of my old comfort foods (which are terrible for blood sugar)! I have none of the obsessive and terrified thinking that if I don’t do this perfectly and get my situation under control I’ll get sick. I feel so incredibly relaxed, knowing that I can do what I can do and that I can release the results. There is no sense of angst or fear or compulsion. This NEVER would have happened before working with you one-on-one and taking your programs. I’m so glad I followed my intuition and did them. I can’t thank you enough.

“This program has been life changing. So many programs only scratch the surface–and I’ve tried lots of them. When I think of the thousands of dollars I’ve spent in gyms and programs–I could have bought a car–and here comes this program that makes it so simple, that lays it right out. Melissa McCreery has topped an industry that has made millions for the many weight loss gurus who think they have the answer, but who has not yielded the results… She’s on to something big! Hats off to her!”Juliet, Naperville, Illinois


“Today I finish six months of individual coaching with Melissa McCreery. It has been an amazing experience. I sought Melissa’s help in understanding my emotional eating habits. From day one Melissa met me where I was without judgment. Her holistic approach helped me to make connections that I had never considered. She has been my advocate and an anchor during this six month discovery process. Melissa is compassionate and action oriented. She helped me become compassionate toward myself.

She helped me replace my judgmental, perfectionist tendencies with a framework of curiosity. “Just play around with it “she would say. She encouraged me to develop a plan that works for me instead of me working a plan. Wow! What a difference that has made. I now have new tools in my toolbox and a new way of looking at myself and my life. I am coming home to myself. I am awakening to strengths I never knew were there. I am in the driver’s seat. And boy does it feel good!” Private Coaching Client Rebecca C., Virginia


“Working with Melissa is giving me a NEW LIFE! I was stuck and for someone who is used to being very successful despite huge challenges–that was very scary. Coaching with Melissa has enabled me to get unstuck. I need a coach with the psychological expertise and solid experience to help me deal with the many issues holding me back. As a result of Melissa’s teleseminars, materials and especially coaching with Melissa, I don’t live in a state of numbness any longer. I actually feel joy (When I started with Melissa I told her I couldn’t even remember what joy felt like). I have a home that nourishes me. I am starting my own business. I’m developing healthy relationships. I’m emotionally, as well as physically, available for my children. 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! It is so refreshing to have her be so “spot on” in her coaching. Therein lies some of the magic as to why coaching with Melissa can be so productive. This was absolutely the best gift I have ever given to myself.” Grace T., Private Coaching Client


“It’s not a coincidence that since working with Melissa I’ve upgraded my wardrobe, maintained my fitness routine without struggle, gotten a huge promotion, not been on a diet of any sort, been doing more creative projects that feed me, cleaned out my office, let go of some draining commitments. I’m more prepared for the holidays than I’ve ever been, I’m deepening some friendships and making new ones while letting go of others that are subtly destructive. I’m putting a few extra minutes into my appearance each day, am keeping the house really nice, am consistently writing. . . . . I’m so grateful to have someone (else) so fully on my side., seeing my best and reminding me of it, helping me be compassionate with myself, cheering me on, challenging me to be myself, helping me explore some parts of myself like the mindless eating that embarrass me, seeing all of this as connected to me and who I am in this world.” Vicki, Private Coaching Client


“I just want to say, that you´re amazing! All the women that I work with and my girlfriends seriously need to know about your work, because it really stands out from the fitness world and most women magazines way of dealing with the food/weight issue. I myself work within the fitness industry and in this world, the things you put words to just seems to be such a taboo and embarrassing subject that nobody brings it up . . . Your way of making emotional eating “normal” and down to earth is so relieving to me – both on a personal but certainly also on a professional level! Thank you!” Noël Winkelmann, Denmark


“I was stuck. Stuck in a rut…stuck in life…stuck being unhappy about my choices. Food was the way I coped sometimes. . . Your class really helped me realize that when I get bored, I eat. Then, I feel guilty and horrible about myself for eating that cookie and eat again to make myself feel better. . . Your class taught me to recognize the problem at hand that makes me want to eat, and then gave me the tools to handle it. I can’t think of a better course than that!!” Ronda Stephens-Auclair
