Holistic Health Coaching
In life, we use many tools to evaluate ourselves. If you’re like me (and 80% of the women in the United States), you went on your first diet before your tenth birthday. I don’t think any of us started with the intention to go on another. And yet, we all do. It’s a vicious cycle. We grab on to weight because it’s a tangible way for us to measure ourselves. We spend so much of our brain power on weight loss instead of pursuing our life's purpose.
All of the sudden weight is dictating our social schedules and our focus on it is running our lives. We are not here to lose weight. Think of a friend (or maybe it's you) that's always talking about the latest diet she's on or tracking her calories in MyFitness pal to prepare for an event. She's obviously a smart and dedicated person who has so much more to give than a focus on the scale.
How we eat has everything to do with why we eat it and almost nothing to do with what we eat. When one thing in life is out of alignment it affects all other areas. Everything in your life is connected. We’ll take a holistic approach and look at your foundation, personal life balance and dreams to create an action plan for you to take positive steps in the areas of self awareness, healthy relationships, inspiration, natural nutrition and exercise.
Work with me 1:1 over the course of 3 months to adjust your life and build habits that serve you so that you can become the best version of yourself and pursue your passions. You'll set and accomplish goals in a way that is empowering, exciting, and lasting.

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
Integrative Nutrition Plate
The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!
The concept of Bio-IINndividuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
