MY MISSON: To Support Parents and Caregivers Reclaim their Health and Personal Balance through Holistic Lifestyle Changes
What is Health and Wellness?
What is Health Coaching?
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as "A state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
The National Wellness Institute (2018) addresses six dimensions of wellness in their definition: emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual. These components dynamically lead to a better state of health and wellbeing that contribute to a holistic sense of wellness and fulfillment.
Wellness is fluid, while health is viewed as good or bad. A person's health refers to their objective states of physical, mental, and social well-being, while wellness encompasses lifestyle practices aimed to enhance those objective states. Wellness views health from a holistic perspective (mind, body and spirit).
Health Coaching provides support, mentorship, and accountability to help clients make sustainable lifestyle changes to meet their unique health goals. Motivation to change must come from deep within because health happens in day-to-day life, not in the doctor’s office.
Why You Should Work With Me
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I understand the weight and frustration of feeling like you could be living a fuller life, or that your body deserves better, but not knowing where to turn. My mission is simple: give parents and caregivers wellness education, tools, and support they need to feel fulfilled and capable of managing life’s challenges while living a healthy, balanced life.
I was once where you might be now; unhappy, overweight, and overwhelmed. Instead of addressing it, I just kept going. After taking a long, hard look at my lifestyle, I decided to make a change and realized it wasn’t just about weight. It was about not experiencing joy, feeling immobilized by stress, and wrestling with acute fear and self-doubt. No one can afford to live another day that way.
Over time, by making a commitment to myself and recognizing what I needed to be happy, I lost over 50 pounds without dieting or setting foot in a gym, reduced my stress and reclaimed my curiosity and enthusiasm about what could be.
We are all working through challenges, dealing with setbacks, and craving quick fixes. By replacing negative thoughts and behaviors with positive changes and nutritional interventions, we can truly be our best selves. My best self, so far, is happier, more resilient, and open to what’s next without fear of judgment or scrutiny from others. I’m ready and excited to share what I’ve learned with those who need it.
Together we can identify strengths and eliminate obstacles to living the life you deserve.
Is Health Coaching for You?
Health Coaching is for you if you are:
Wrestling with motivation or lacking support in your endeavors
In need of a “safe space” to share challenges and seek unbiased support
Struggling to make changes in your life or to improve your health
Need to manage stress from professional or personal challenges that are negatively impacting your health
Tired of dieting and endless exercise that don’t result in sustainable changes or weight loss
Looking to build skills that will allow you to successfully manage your nutritional needs
Ready to embrace a new way of thinking, eating, and showing up in the world
Working with a Health Coach will allow you to examine your needs from a holistic approach and target the areas that will benefit you in achieving overall change.
Health Coaching is NOT for you if you are:
Looking for a medical or quick fix to your health and wellness challenges
Thinking a Health Coach will resolve your issues for you, tell you want to do or has all the answers
Afraid of examining all aspects of your life to find the root cause of your struggles
Not willing to face discomfort to gain knowledge and growth
If you are ready to commit to change, I'm ready to support your journey!
