The different facets of our health are inextricable.
It’s hard to feel mentally and emotionally sound when you don’t feel well physically. It’s hard to feel confident physically when your inner world feels like it’s crumbling. It’s hard to thrive at work or in your relationships when everything feels out of your control.
In our Western culture, far too many of us rely on our mind (mental center) as we just try to “figure it out”. But if it was just that easy, wouldn’t you have figured it out by now?
The more we approach life in this way, the more disconnected we become from our heart (emotional center) and our body (physical center). All three centers of intelligence become out of whack, resulting in even less clarity in our heads.
We ignore the messages our mind, body & heart are so often sending.
Felt fully present, without worry of the future or relenting about the past?
Let yourself be silly and playful just for the fun of it?
Honestly got a great night’s sleep?
Navigated a sticky situation and it didn’t bring you down?
Created something just for the sake of being creative?
Went for something with boldness because you actually believed you could achieve it?
Aren't you sick of the drain and the dread and the distance between you and your joy?
Although I can’t imagine health & fitness not being a part of my life now, it wasn’t always. Like anyone, I’ve certainly been through my share of difficult seasons, challenging relationships, unhealthy habits, and different-sized pants.
Knowing I needed to make a change, I poured myself into studying clinical nutrition and reading every book on the subject I could get my hands on. I became a Dietary Technologist and later became a certified coach through the Primal Health Coaching program. After implementing a primal structured lifestyle, losing 50 pounds, and prioritizing my health, I feel better now in my upper 40s than I ever have.
You’ll never hear me talk about fad diets unless it’s to dismiss them because I believe it’s about daily actions, done with discipline and consistency that produce lasting results. Easier said than done, of course. But now you know you’ll be working with someone who’s been in your shoes, who knows what it takes, and who will give you the step-by-step guidance you need to achieve your goals and live in good health.

My own self-discovery process began in 2008 after years of struggling with depression and feeling like something was missing. I attended the Journey Practitioner Program, which first opened my eyes, later followed by several courses and certifications like Body Talk Life Sciences, the Demer’s Group Professional Coach Certification, Enneagram training with the Enneagram Institute, as well as becoming a Certified Enneagram Coach through the Deep Coaching Institute.
All of that has led me to the belief that we’re each on this planet to grow in kindness and love. There is truly nothing more important than learning to love on a deeper level. For many of us, it starts with learning to love ourselves.
Combining all the tools I have gathered over the years, along with firsthand experience, ancient wisdom, spirituality, and common sense, I work with people from all walks of life. The impact of being coached in my own life has been incredible and the results I’ve witnessed in my clients’ lives have been astounding. I can’t wait to help you further discover the beauty within yourself and create a more loving world together.
