Helping you move toward whole health
organizing and de-stressing
finding balance in a hectic life
It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As an Integrative Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals.
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, they create a much larger and longer lasting impact than any quick-fix plan.
We work on what you want to improve within the circumstances of your unique situation, because health is so much more than diet and exercise. We will look at your life as a whole and see where you need support.

Who Needs a Health Coach?
These days it's hard for ANYONE to stay on a health-conscious path. You can find yourself spinning in circles with the bombardment of overt and subliminal messages telling us what we "need" to stay happy and healthy and nutritional advise that is confusing, contradictory, and incomplete. For fear of making the wrong decision or from pure exhaustion, many stay stagnant in their comfort zones, even when they need and/or want to change. In short, we can ALL use help now and then.
Some specific examples:
New and Old Diagnoses
Doctor Recommended Lifestyle Changes
You've been diagnoses with a disease like diabetes or coronary heart disease and your doctor says you need to change your diet and exercise more. Easier said than done! I can work with you and your doctor to help you identify and implement those lifestyle changes.
Low energy, weak immune system, mild depression
These symptoms are so prevelent they almost seem normal. If you've been examined by your doctor and they can't find anything wrong don't give up! The easiest place to start is with diet and exercise and I can help you with ideas and we'll map out a plan together!
New or Subborn
We usually know what we could be doing differently....so why haven't we done it already? Sometimes we just need a hand to quickly get back on track and sometimes we need help figuring out what to do to be successful long term. The answers are not always obvious, there is much to explore: stress, lifestyle balance, hormones, food sensitivities, gut balance, etc! Let's investigate together.
Eating with new diet restrictions (ex: gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc)
Learning how to incorporate cooking and other healthy habits into your busy lifestyle
Balancing a busy life while maintaining your well-being
