Reba Connell, LCSW, teaches Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Eating classes. She has completed several levels of study in teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, including a professional training program under the direction of Dr. Saki Santorelli and Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.
She is deeply engaged with science-based and traditional approaches to healing through food and self-care. Her trainings include a professional training in teaching Mindful Eating through UCSD; Food As Medicine; The Gut Brain; and Preventing and Managing Chronic Inflammation: Special Focus: Nutritional Interventions; and Nutritional and Complementary Treatments for Mental Health Disorders.
Finding mindfulness, movement, and food to make big differences in her own healing from chronic pain, she feels called to share what she is learning with others and to help people make their own discoveries. While focused on studying food for mood, sleep, and pain, she accidentally learned about the latest developments in the science of nutrition and weight loss.
