The focus of my coaching centers around the idea that we are made up of a lot of pieces that create our whole selves. We are not just our nutrition or our physical exercise. All of these pieces (stress, sleep, emotions, etc) play an integral part in our overall health and wellness. You cannot address one area and neglect the others and expect that you'll be healthy. You must address all areas, bit by bit, to see improvements in your health. In my coaching we'll first address where you are at in each of these areas, and then work through each of them with practical tips to see small incremental progress.
Intuitive eating is an approach that was created by two registered dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, in 1995.

As a certified Intuitive Eating counselor I follow this approach as we talk about nutrition and trusting our bodies. While letting go of the idea of weight loss is hard for many clients, I do ask that you put weight loss on the back burner as we work through the issues that dieting have created in your life.
Author John Whitmore defines coaching as, "unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them." As a health and wellness coach focusing on body trust and intuition, I help clients recognize the knowledge and body wisdom that they possess, but have pushed down or ignored most of their life. I'm all about helping clients set goals that make sense and helping you shift your mindset to embracing who you know you can be. More than anything, I'm a guide on your journey towards the next best version of yourself.
