Susan is simply the best and smartest Eating Psychology Coach out there. If there were a rating higher than 5 stars, I'd give it in a heartbeat!!!

After several years of knowing Susan as teammate and volleyball peer, I finally had the opportunity to work with her as my eating psychology coach. She is great at breaking it all down in a way that sticks with you over time. And that equals success. More...

Working with Susan D'Addario, The Health Shrink, on my weight and life issues has been both rewarding and insightful! Susan helped me change my life paradigm that progress is not a straight line, it's a zig-zag. Sometimes you take a few steps forward and a step back, but it's still improvement. I now have more energy, sleep better, and feel happy with myself.
I recommend her most highly!

I'm so grateful for my experiences in working with Susan. As a most skilled, knowledgable and encouraging Eating Psychology Coach she has helped me overcome some of the most difficult aspects of autoimmune illness and chronic pain while helping me build lean mass and most of all confidence! She has given me new a understanding of my relationship with food and how to make the most of that in my life. Highly recommended! More...

If known Susan for several years through team sport volleyball and I've gotten to know her personal, she is one of the most supportive individuals I've ever met. As a life dietary coach, she give great insight and truly cares about your health and mental state. Both go hand in hand, and she helps you re-enforce how you can help yourself and control your eating. I highly recommend reaching out to Susan, and once you speak to her, you will realize she is worth your time and energy.. 5 Stars!!! More...

I love helping people. It's a very rewarding feeling to see people grow and make changes in themselves and their lives that leads to their happiness!

Part of my history as a therapist was working for a decade in a substance-abuse treatment facility. That was challenging and something I enjoyed very much. I wanted to start my own practice since I could help a greater variety of people.

Your clients should choose me because not only am I highly experienced and educated, but because as a human being, I care tremendously about the people who come to me for help.


I provide individual therapy/coaching as well as facilitate women's empowerment groups. I also am a public speaker on topics regarding healthy body image, mind/body nutrition and eating psychology. I am a Licensed HeartMath Coach and help people reduce stress and increase their personal resilience.
