So this is me: mother, partner, professional, friend and avid health enthusiast (which is an understatement!).
I am also a Certified Holistic Health Coach with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics and Human Nutrition.
I’ve been studying nutrition and the human body since I was 13 years old. At that time, the fat-free fad was well underway, and I was painstakingly following this trend. I remember being an extremist in this approach, until one day I attended a seminar given by a man who treated illness with healthy fats.
What?? That was my reaction. After listening to the supporting research and rationale behind his claims, I was completely intrigued. I wanted to learn more – needed to learn more – and so I started my research.
I found that everything I read, whether it was written by a doctor, a dietitian, or other health professional, conflicted and confused me. Some things made no sense at all, but for the most part EVERYTHING made some sense, and I just didn’t know what to believe anymore. So that’s when I decided what my career would be: a nutrition expert.
When it came time for me go to University, I chose the most reputable school and set out to learn the “truth” about diet and health. I won’t go into it here, but let’s just say that I was disappointed. I gained weight, became obsessed and anxious about “healthy eating”, and ultimately felt pretty awful. I earned my degree and got my first job as a Registered Dietitian, but never bothered to look for a second. I knew that path wasn’t for me.
I went on to study at two Holistic Health institutes, and finally got a grip on my own struggles. I continued to follow the scientific literature and various health experts, and eventually developed a simple and effective system for maintaining my own well-being and to share with my clients.
Today, I combine my conventional knowledge in Dietetics with a holistic approach – the best of both worlds! To learn more about this, check out Why Holistic Nutrition?
I changed my own life and body with this very approach: education, experimentation, and holistic techniques. I now have unwavering confidence in my food choices, and am able to eat what I want without stress. I don’t spend hours in the kitchen or at the gym, either. Does this sound appealing to you?
My passion is to help you, too, transform your life through diet, simple lifestyle changes, and your relationship with food. This is the focus of my one-on-one sessions with clients, and my Transformational Healing Method online program. I want you to experience true nourishment, exuberant vitality, lasting health, and a body and life you love.
So how can I help you?
I use my background and experience in both conventional nutrition and holistic health to sort through the information for you (so you don’t have to), prioritize according to your individual needs, and break everything down into key concepts that you can actually use and easily incorporate into your current lifestyle. I focus on physical and mental nourishment, stress reduction, identification of food intolerances, energetics, and natural healing. My methods are simple, effective, flexible, and science-based, with a huge dose of open-mindedness and forward-thinking.
I incorporate today’s leading advances in science and wellness from a whole health perspective. This means that I address a client’s well-being in totality, rather than focusing on any single element, as many practitioners do.
I have helped many achieve their weight loss goals, treat disease, and gain control of their lives.
