My name is Mari Paulus. For almost 30 years,
my work has been helping people overcome compulsive behaviors.
I initially trained with Patricia Allison of the BreatheFree Stop Smoking Program in Portland, Oregon and worked with nicotine addiction for many years.
My experience helping smokers overcome their addiction, lead me to my work with compulsive eaters. As the business developed, I learned a great deal about the addictive thinking behind compulsive eating and wrote a book titled, “More Than Just Weight Loss, Facing Food Addiction.” The second edition has been published with the new name, “Beyond Food Compulsion.” Recently I produced and released a short film to educate healthcare providers and individuals on the perspective of obesity stemming from compulsive behavior.
I reestablished my business as Beyond Compulsion to make this highly effective method of dealing with compulsive behaviors available to anyone dealing with this issue, rather than limiting my teaching to compulsive eating and/or nicotine addiction.
