My goal is to empower you to change those habits that keep you overweight and disconnected from your most joyful and authentic self. I know profound change is possible because I’ve experienced it myself! You can achieve an optimal state of health and happiness.
I can help you identify and release destructive patterns of behavior while inspiring and motivating you to reclaim a life of health and wellness. Together, we create a sacred space for learning all that you need to know with grace and ease. I will guide and support you on your path to self discovery and self acceptance.
We’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet. We’ve been told that we don’t have any willpower or that we need more control and, let’s face it, he majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, how to have a happy relationship with food and what it really takes to maintain a healthy metabolism.
My deep listening skills and thoughtful, intuitive insights combined with an empathetic, non-judgmental approach will help you step into your true identity, commit to show up for yourself, and trust your deep inner wisdom. I believe in a practical approach to transformation that includes a deep connection to your spiritual source, a healthy dose of compassion and good sense of humor!
How is My Approach Different?
In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology. By eliminating all the “shoulds and should not’s”, I 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 for exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement.
In addition to being a Certified Life Coach I trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology where I received my certification as an Eating Psychology Coach. In IPE’s internationally acclaimed program, I learned powerful cutting-edge tools and protocols that enable me to work with weight issues, body image challenges, overeating, binge eating, and a variety of nutrition related health concerns such as digestion, fatigue, mood, immunity, and others. My work combines the powerful new fields of Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind-Body Nutrition. The skills I use from this training are a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind-body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.
