Health Coaching

Health Coaching

I have been an avid health enthusiast since I was a teenager, and was always looking for ways to be fit.  At a very young age, I thought that health was all about outward appearance.  Because of this I spent most of my teens and 20’s trying every fad diet known to man.  It wasn’t until I embarked on life as an expat, coping with the stresses of moving countries every three years, did I realize that health was not just physical, but also mental and spiritual.  After having three children and changing careers in my 30s, I slowly started shifting my perspective on what health really meant to me.  It suddenly became about living mindfully and healthfully from the inside out.  That’s when I decided to dedicate myself to study a much deeper approach, a much more holistic approach, and hence began my year-long certification at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

My approach to health and wellness is a holistic all-inclusive approach.  Graduating from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, not only did I study over 100 dietary theories, but I also I studied practical lifestyle coaching methods, and practical lifestyle management techniques.  This education equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention.  With this, I am able to co-create a personalized wellness path based on each individual’s goals, guiding them on their own health journey based on unique body, lifestyle and resources.   I work with clients based on their own bio-individuality and address not only food, but also bring balance to areas such as relationships, career and exercise.  My goal is to personally and carefully guide my clients to make simple, small changes to transform their life for happier, healthier and more well-rounded living.

My Approach

As a Health Coach, I guide and mentor my clients and help them make health and wellness a priority.  I provide ongoing support over time to make sustainable changes that improve their overall lives.  I create a safe environment that allows my clients to feel comfortable setting and achieving goals.   My approach is to assess all areas of life: career, relationships, exercise, food, spirituality, and then see how all of these things affect overall wellbeing.  The idea is not to be rigid in any area, but to have a balance in all of these important areas of life. My goal is that my clients develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for them to improve their health and wellness, and ultimately, their happiness.
