Workshops Deconstruct Self-Destructive Patterns in Katonah, NY

Renee Simon & Dr. Stacy Raymond, PhD

Dietician and nutritionist Renee Simon and psychologist Dr. Stacy Raymond, PhD, will lead a four-week workshop in Katonah, NY, and Ridgefield, CT, exploring addictive behaviors and other self-destructive patterns.

The program, based on Geneen Roth’s Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything, uses food as a metaphor for any self-defeating habits, says Simon. Attendees don’t have to have an eating disorder to benefit, and the theme does not denote any specific religious affiliation or belief. “The program will be a transformative experience to redefine one’s relationship with food, learn to love self and body more fully, and open more deeply to the soul’s true essence,” she says. The workshop explains why “quick fixes,” which don’t resolve deeper issues, can’t permanently solve problems.

Simon is board certified, with 11 years’ experience helping women reach and maintain their ideal body weight through fully integrated health and lifestyle programs. Raymond, a licensed clinical psychologist for 15 years, specializes in eating issues and problem resolution and addresses the link between spirituality and self-esteem. Both women help their clients identify and resolve the toxic beliefs and emotions that often underlie health concerns.

The workshop will run on consecutive Tuesdays from January 11 to February 1, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at 15 Parkway, Katonah; and on consecutive Wednesdays from January 12 to February 2, noon-1:30 p.m., at 38B Grove St., Ridgefield. The program costs $125, or $99 through December 31. Space is limited. To register or for more information, call Renee Simon at 914.763.9107 or visit or
