I came to health coaching after struggling for years with health problems that I was unable to solve through standard western means. Through my research and personal experimentation, I discovered that most of my health problems were linked to my food and lifestyle choices. By incorporating holistic modalities and relatively simple changes to my diet, I was able to heal myself, increase my energy and vitality, and regain a natural trust of my body’s intuition. As an artist and through coaching other Creative Professionals to get back into balance, I have also discovered how to work with the unique challenges of a creative lifestyle. Other specialties of mine include working with sugar addiction and sugar cravings, as I'm a bonafide ex-sugar addict! Whether through one-on-one coaching, workshops, or online classes, I’m excited and honored to share my knowledge with you and support you in your journey toward optimum health.
I'm a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach through the AADP (American Association of Drugless Practitioners). I received my training in Health Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the only nutrition school in the world that integrates all the different dietary theories—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies such as Yin/Yang and Ayurveda with modern concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, the Zone and raw foods.
While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. I will help you to shift your relationship with food, regain the trust of your own body, and explore that which feeds you but doesn’t come on your plate. The food you eat and the life you live should nourish and fulfill you.
