Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS WELLNESS COACHING?
I know first hand that eating well, exercising and creating new habits can feel daunting, challenging or even impossible. As a coach, my goal is to un-complicate and demystify the confusing and contradicting information surrounding nutrition, exercise, and whole body wellness.
I work one-on-one with individuals, in small groups, or with corporations, to procure ideal happiness and health by finding that sweet spot between loving food, without it becoming an unhealthy obsession. We work on discovering movement and mindfulness that is sustainable and actually enjoyable.
Clients gain the knowledge and skills to navigate through the ever evolving wellness world, and manage social situations with ease. Most importantly, clients rediscover themselves, gain confidence and begin to lead the life they’ve always dreamed of.
In many cases I also assist the client in reestablishing respect and gratitude for their body. Tuning in and learning how to listen to and honor our physical beings, finding harmony between mind, body and spirit.
I believe our lifestyle and diets and should feel full, nurturing and expansive. Not empty, inaccessible or restrictive. This is why my approach to healthy living does not require expensive powders, tonics or cleanses. There is no weighing, counting or tallying, but also no magic bullet or pill. This means doing the work. Together, we untangle messy, societal constructs around health and body image. We may sift through debilitating thoughts and beliefs that holds us back from achieving our best, happiest and healthiest self.
I provide clients with the knowledge and space to make their own decisions that they feel empowered in. I guide them and help facilitate gradual changes, providing support along the way. I am available outside of sessions because this is when the real work is done. Clients also receive ongoing support, tips, recipes, and guidance to make sustainable improvements to their health and lifestyle.

You know when you go to the doctor and you tell them what physical problems you're experiencing and they prescribe you various meds and treatments as they see fit?
Well, that is precisely what I do NOT do.
Instead, I strive to work in tandem with professional doctors, therapists, nutritionists, trainers, psychics, gurus, sensei, etc. to help guide you down your own personal path to better health and wellness. As a wellness lifestyle coach I work with people who are seeking to improve their overall well-being through healthy lifestyle tweaks, shifts in mindset, and judgement-free conversations. I believe having an safe environment where you can relieve yourself of everything on your mind is the first step to getting well and recognizing imbalances in your physical health are often manifestations of imbalances in other areas of your life (and vice versa). Whatever the case, you have the power to change it. Together we get to the bottom of what is holding you back and put you on a path toward optimum wellness.
