I help women cultivate a healthy relationship with food, mind, body, and spirit by working together to create a holistic action plan uniquely designed for them

I am here for one-on-one personal guidance to support you through nutrition and lifestyle improvements to help you live your best life and achieve your specific health and wellness goals.
My health journey hasn’t been an easy one.

I grew up in a toxic and unhealthy family that was riddled with abuse and mental health issues. This led to the development of Disordered Eating habits at 11 years old until my mid 20’s. (I still have to do routine checkins with myself to stay on the right mindset and track.) I also spent a generous portion of my adult life running full speed ahead day by day, neglecting my self care and not respecting my own boundaries. I pushed and pushed until my adrenals gave out and my entire digestive system went haywire. I lost half my hair; my skin was erupting in painful cystic acne that would last months at a time; I was so fatigued and exhausted I couldn’t see straight; my belly was so consistently bloated people would ask how far along in my pregnancy I was (I have never been pregnant!); I developed SIBO and SIFO, Leaky Gut, Candida Overgrowth, and intense food sensitivities.

I started going through Perimenopause at 33 and have experienced the usual and unpleasant symptoms including bloating, constipation, hot flashes, brain fog, memory loss, fatigue, osteopenia, loss of libido, weight gain, insomnia, and some serious irritability now and then!  It took over 8 years of living with these symptoms before I could get a doctor to agree to test my hormones. I felt unheard and unsupported as I was misdiagnosed and treated for Hypothyroidism. After the medication made my thyroid overproduce and go into Hyperthyroidism, my lovely new doctor helped me to wean off the medication. My hormones went through an immense spiral in a very short few months!  Now as I approach my mid 40’s I am smack dab in the throws of Menopause and navigating it with compassion. (most of the time!)  You can read more about my full health story here.

I can honestly say, that I am fortunate enough to refer to myself as healed. 

But, that doesn’t mean I am not continuing to improve! I dove into Yoga Teacher Training many years ago and I believe that, coupled with talk therapy, Buddhist Meditation Sanghas, and learning to say no to people, were some of the tools on my healing journey. I was able to get to the root of my health issues and was able to nurture the imbalances in my digestive system using foods, stress management techniques, complete lifestyle changes amongst other useful resources. And I only feel better as every day goes by!

 What did I learn?

Through the decades long process of my own healing journey I have been fortunate enough to learn a lot; from elimination diets and autoimmune protocols, to meditation and breathing techniques. I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and I am also a Yoga and Meditation teacher.  I am still a dedicated student, continuing to learn and educate myself. I love that I will never know “enough” or “it all”.  In fact, most of my wisdom comes from the women I am working with. 

  • I have learned to slow down and listen to my body’s cues.
  • I learned that there is no magic pill or meal plan or diet that would be right for everyone. Bio-Individuality is key. What works for one, can be toxic to another. 
  • I learned that it was ok to release the feelings of shame about my changing body and how to accept who I am, where I am today.
  • I learned to trust myself as my own intuitive guide and healer. 
  • I learned how to be gentle with myself when my health took over my life.
  • I learned to trust food and that it wasn’t out to get me. I learned to heal the root of my gut inflammation and bring it back into balance so that food wasn’t the enemy.
  • I learned to be my own advocate and to press forward until I healed!
  • The most important thing I learned is to never give up! There is always a reset button. 

Who is right for one on one coaching?

Everyone of course! (Sorry for stating the obvious.) Who is right for one on one coaching with me? Well, that is a different story! I love to work with motivated women who are transitioning through the midlife years, who are looking to thrive and kick aging in the you know what! This is going to look differently for most of us and is why I LOVE working with women who are my peers. 

Some of the things I love to navigate through are: 

  • wanting to take your health into your own hands and learn how to nourish your body with the foods that are right for you
  • working with you to develop a loving and trusting relationship with food as nourishment
  •  achieving an optimal and healthy weight
  •  feeling run down and overwhelmed
  •  feeling like every food you eat is out to destroy you
  • digestive issues and IBS
  • anxiety and stress reduction
  •  feeling disconnected from your own body
  •  feeling disconnected from spiritual practices
  •  contemplating BIG changes such as a job or a move or ending or beginning a relationship 
  • managing menopausal symptoms naturally
How can I help?
I empower and educate women to learn to listen to their bodies; to learn how to nourish it properly for their unique and individual self, based on what works for one person, doesn’t work for all. I encourage rejection of diet culture and the idea of what health and your body are supposed to look like. 

We look at all the aspects of your lifestyle and nutrition and create an individualized action plan that suites each woman, based on your specific wellness goals. I use this holistic approach to not only bring balance to the health of your digestive system, hormones, and physical body, but also to the other aspects of your daily life. (**psst they are usually always connected.)
