My Approach

I BELIEVE…

That you never have to wake up feeling bloated, ever again.

That chocolate, wine and our favorite foods were meant to be enjoyed, not feared or eliminated.

That you have the power to use food to your advantage…to make you feel happier, healthier and more energetic.

That with a little bit of my support, the best, authentic version of “YOU” you know is inside will come out, and you can reach your health goals, once and for all.

Here’s how…

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 look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

A health coach (or health counselor) is a wellness guide and supportive mentor. Together, we’ll work to achieve your goals in areas such as weight management, food cravings, sleep and energy. Through working with me, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

Bio-individuality

The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has her or his own food and lifestyle needs. So, when the experts say, “dairy is good for you” or “fat is unhealthy,” it doesn’t apply to everyone. 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 in making positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, personal preferences, and background. Instead of prescribing one fix for all people, I use a personalized, holistic approach that is based on your needs.

Everything is food

We are not only fed by food but by other factors in our lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual practice are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.

Healthy living should be fun!

I eat chocolate (dark chocolate, in moderation) every day.  Life should not be about deprivation!  Life should be about enjoying the juicy, delicious things that come our way – both in terms of food and in terms of life opportunities.  I work with my clients to help them live their lives to the fullest.  If you’re looking for a quick-fix diet that will help you lose 30 pounds by tomorrow, you’re in the wrong place.  But…if you want to stop dieting, forever, and finally be able to enjoy everything that comes you’re way, you’ve come to the right place.  My goal is to give you the undivided attention and support you need and deserve to finally reach your goals, once and for all.
