Gravletes, do we have a treat for you! On Nov. 8, our very own Nicole Williams (Coach Bret’s girl!) will be hosting an informative talk on the I.D. side regarding food — something we LOVE — but more in depth, she will be delving into how personality type affects ones relationship with food as well as how the way we operate in interpersonal relationships can be reflected in the addictive cycle of food.

Please save the date, invite your friends and family, bring a beach chair, some water (and snacks), and a notepad and pen if you’re all about taking notes, like me.

We asked Nicole to tell us a little bit about herself, and here’s what she said …

“I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist since 2007 with an emphasis in the areas of eating disorders and body image issues. I also have extensive experience in the treatment of alcohol and other drugs.

I am a graduate of UCLA and obtained my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Santa Barbara. I have received training from Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, the Family Service Agency, and UCSB where I acted as a lead counselor in the Drug and Alcohol Program. I am also certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which deals with how trauma is stored in the body.

I currently teach The Process of Psychotherapy in the Counseling Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I have served as Adjunct Faculty at Antioch University as well as Santa Barbara City College, where I developed the curriculum for The Recognition and Treatment of Eating Disorders.
