How to Change Thought Patterns & Stop Negative Self Talk with Jane Tornatore PhD, LMFT

Mar 09, 2022

Three of the biggest barriers to long-term weight loss I often hear are: negative self-talk that leads to self-sabotage; a lack of healthy boundaries with little time and energy to focus on YOU; and frequently putting the needs of other people above your own - at the expense of your own health. 

Dr. Jane Tornatore has a PhD in Family Social Science and Family Therapy. As a recovering perfectionist, she knows the pain of being bogged down by old beliefs, feeling responsible for everything, and never quite measuring up to expectations. 

Through her own ongoing inner growth work and exploration, she continues to discover the freedom and peace that come from questioning old beliefs, being gentler on herself, and living more from her heart, not expectations of others or old beliefs. 

You’ll find this episode extremely valuable if, like me, you’re a recovery perfectionist and people pleaser!
