I am a certified Health and Life Coach. I trained in Mind-Body Eating Nutrition through The Institute for the Psychology of Eating and work with people on weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges and various nutrition related health concerns. I understand the power that cravings have, eating to fill a void, and putting on a few extra pounds. The training I received bridges the gap between the symptoms our physical body presents and the underlying message our body is telling us through our symptom, be it with weight or lack of health. Our emotions and reactions to life is absorbed by our body and projected outward by the symptoms we feel.
I also am a Conscious Relationship Coach through The Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Our thoughts and emotions can directly impact our health. Successfully navigating the ups and downs of our daily lives can bring your mind, body and soul into balance.
I advanced my Health Coach knowledge and skills by becoming a Certified Holistic Health Coach with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My understanding and awareness with weight management, nutrition and the mind-body connection was enhanced.
From my own struggles with IBS, fatigue, food sensitivities, and Hashimoto autoimmune disorder, I focused on gut health and am a Certified Gluten Free Practitioner and Gut Health Coach.
All the training I received focuses on a holistic approach to wellness and emphasizes how personal relationships, work, exercise and spirituality are essential to building good health.
I believe we are more than just our physical body when experiencing a health concern. There is a mind-body connection to also explore. Our body is talking to us and we need to listen.
I will be your guide, keep you accountable and lead you towards living a more vibrant and healthy life. Together we will discover what is holding you back and get you on track to be your fabulous self!
How Is My Approach Different
I will work with you to discover how all aspects of your life are connected, not just with food in relation to your health and weight. Do you overeat due to stress at your job or in your relationship? Is exercise difficult due to lack of sleep or low energy? Is your life chaotic and difficult to focus or plan for healthier eating? Do you have negative self-perception and a poor body image?
For far too long, we’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet. We’ve been told that we’re willpower weaklings or that we need more control. The majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.
As a health coach, I remove all the “should and should nots” and instead focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement.
With my training at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, I’ve learned to help clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but through strategies that nourish.
