Hi! I’m really glad you’re here. I’m Ginny Jones, a parent coach who specializes in helping parents navigate eating disorder recovery and other difficult situations. I’m on a mission to empower parents to raise kids who are free from body hate and eating disorders.
Here’s some information about me:
❤️ I believe parents can make a difference and help kids recover from eating disorders.
✨ I’ve been a coach and consultant since 2004.
🦋 I founded More-Love.org, a website that provides resources to help parents with their kids’ food and body issues.
📚 I’m an avid reader and have read hundreds of thousands of words about parenting, mental health, eating disorder recovery, etc.
💕 I met my husband in Guam in 1995, and we lived there for four years. We were born in the same hospital in Los Angeles and grew up 20 minutes apart.
💖 We have one daughter, a teenager who keeps things (very!) real. We wrote a book about body image together!
🌊 We live in Santa Monica, California.
🚐 We have a Eurovan that we use as our mobile living room, and we spend a lot of time at the beach.
💪 My coaching approach is strengths-based. That means I look for areas in which you already excel and help you build on those.
🎯 I work from a Health at Every SizeⓇ (HAESⓇ), non-diet, Intuitive Eating framework.
It would be my sincere honor to talk to you and see if we could be a good fit.
In addition to staying current in the field of eating disorders, I actively pursue education on a wide variety of topics. I believe that this holistic approach to family systems and mental health is key to supporting recovery. Some of my interests and training include:
- Parent-based treatment (SPACE training)
- Interpersonal neurobiology
- Family dynamics & parental attachment
- Feeding strategies (sDOR training)
- Self-leadership (IFS training)
- Leadership & management
- Influence & persuasion
- Mindfulness & self-compassion
- Addiction & substance disorders
- ADHD, ASD, OCD, & PTSD
- Social justice
A little bit of my life …
