This is the first of a 3-part series on Health At Every Size, especially during the perinatal phase of life. Rachel Tuchman joins us for the first 2 parts to break down what HAES is and isn't, why weight isn't a good tracker of health, why dieting and trying to lose weight is harmful, and how we need to change our mindset about food. Rachel Tuchman is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with over ten years of experience. She has worked with many diverse populations including incarcerated women at Riker's Island Correctional Facility, kids and adults with developmental delays, kids with behavior issues, overwhelmed parents looking for skills and support, teens struggling with the pressures of adolescence and life in general, adults going through difficult life circumstances (divorce, infidelity, phase of life challenges) and women experiencing infertility. Rachel is HAES (Health At Every Size) aligned clinician and dedicates a lot of her time out of office to educating parents and kids on the importance of body respect and the behaviors that truly honor our health. Currently, she offers services in her Cedarhurst, NY office for kids and teens ages 5-18, adults, and women experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss and post hysterectomy. Rachel also does speaking engagements for schools, synagogues and various community organizations. You can find Rachel on Instagram: @rachel_tuchman_lmhc and contact her by email: Rachel@lilmhc.com.
