Rewire Your Relationship with Food Group

A 4 week psycho-educational program designed to improve your relationship with food is available. It is co-facilitated by a psychotherapist and a dietitian who have training and experience providing similar programs for a number of years.

We recognize that people everywhere struggle with problematic eating and there are many myths and inaccuracies perpetuated in the health care sector and diet industry.

Food is core to our existence; however, in this Group you will learn to identify how thoughts, feelings and physical sensations are connected to eating patterns and how we become ‘misconnected’ over time.

We will address emotional eating and work from a mindfulness based approach to help you reset problematic eating behaviours and foster a balanced, respectful, healthy, and joyful relationship with food, eating and your bodies. This Group aims to help you reconnect to your innate inner wisdom so you will no longer be at war with food and yourself. You will also have the benefit of the support and collective wisdom of your peers. Once completed, you will have the option of attending a monthly support Group.

Please email marilyn@onevisionpsychotherapy.com for details and further information to determine whether this is right for you.

About Me

One Vision Psychotherapy is a service owned by Marilyn Vaccaro, an experienced Clinical Social Worker/Psychotherapist with a Master of Social Work. My Master’s Level training was completed at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers.

Throughout my years in practice, I have continued to seek the best and most useful approaches in the field of psychotherapy and pride myself on my assessment and attunement skills. These elements, combined with my passion for helping and belief in our collective wisdom, give me reason to trust that most problems have solutions. I have worked in the mental health field throughout my career in institutional and community settings thus enabling me to cultivate competencies to ease suffering caused by mental health problems.

Human beings are very complex and there is no cookie cutter approach to therapy. I will work with you to understand the unique circumstances that bring you to seek help and together we will agree on the best approach to address the issue/issues you wish to tackle. It may be a combination of best practices. My areas of speciality include Neuroscience and Mindfulness based approaches, as well as Expressive Arts, Narrative, Behavioural and Short-term Psychodynamic Therapies. I have also had some training in Animal Assisted Therapy and value the connections formed with companion animals.
