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.
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I believe that while food changes everything, it is often the “primary food” in our lives (relationship, family, career, physical activity, spirituality etc.) that really nourishes us. Through one-on-one coaching sessions I will help you assess and integrate all the aspects of your life, from the food on your plate to what is truly feeding your soul so that you can achieve a balanced foundation for health and happiness. Health coaching will provide you with the tools to break self-destructive habits, bring mindful awareness to your everyday life, and enact meaningful change that will elevate and transform you forever.
Whatever your goal or health concern, my approach begins from the ground up. My nutritional programs are based on bio-individuality, or the belief that there is no one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter diet that works for all people. Everyone has different nutritional preferences and needs. My approach helps to strengthen and rebuild the digestive and immune systems, deconstruct cravings, and teach you how to use the right foods to heal your body and thrive. I also specialize in elite sports nutrition and proactive weight-loss programs.
My approach is not to micromanage calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create severe 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 your ideal weight, deconstructing food cravings, optimizing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. 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 to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony
