My Approach to Good Health

Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, my clients find the changes collectively create a much larger impact than they originally expected. We work on what you want to improve, and within the circumstances of your unique situation.

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy.

I understand this feels overwhelming. I spent my life trying to figure out how to lose weight, feel better, sleep better, and have more energy. Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Buying book after book, doing diet after diet, and still not experiencing the changes you desire?
  • Seeing the latest trend on the morning show, buying the book, all the right foods and promising that this would be the time you succeeded?
  • Have you tried a zillion “quick fixes” with almost zero results? Would you like to ditch old habits that don’t serve you anymore?
  • Would you like more happiness, more energy and a feeling of total balance throughout the day?
  • Would you like to live a life free from confusion about what to eat, where you feel completely in control of your body and mind?

If you’re shaking your head yes as you read the questions above, you’re in the right place! That was me too! For years and years I kept hitting reset! I ate all carbs, then no carbs. I ate low fat, then no fat, then all fat. I ate all meat. I ate all veggies. I juiced, then I never drank juice because it had too much sugar. IT IS CRAZY MAKING!!!

Small changes, over time, made such a huge difference for me I wanted to learn more! I wanted to help others live healthier and happier lives, so I became a certified holistic health coach.

Through the curriculum at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I have studied all the major dietary theories (over 100) and am able to help you discover what approach works best for you, wherever you are in life. And what works this year, may need tweaking next year, but with help you will learn how to listen to what your body needs and evolve with it.

Rather than dwelling on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with you to create a personalized plan that is flexible and fun.

We’ll find the foods and lifestyle choices that best support you as you make gradual, lifelong changes to reach your current and future health goals.
