My Approach

A different approach
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 achieving optimal weight, 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.

Working With Me:
I take a holistic approach to nutrition. We address your lifestyle as well as your food because, let’s face it, everything in life is food:  food fills us up but it’s our lifestyle that fulfills us. I help clear up the confusion around food and guide you back to intuitive eating and living. I guide you to make the food and lifestyle choices that best support you; that give you the most amount of energy; and that help to cure any chronic illness you may have. This is how we create the healthy life you truly desire.

Uniquely YOU
Nutrition can be confusing even for the experts. It seems for every pro there is a con. For every right there is a wrong. There are experts on both sides of every spectrum. It’s no surprise that most people don’t know what to eat. You are clearly not alone. And no one diet works for everyone. As your Health Coach, I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. Uniquely YOU! I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

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.
