Tricia’s own struggles began in early childhood, where she attempted to cope with life’s stresses and emotional pain by overeating and using other destructive behaviors. After years of exhausting 12-step programs, therapy and self-help books, to no avail, Tricia finally hit a spiritual and emotional bottom.
