I CAN HELP YOU! TOGETHER WE CAN FIND THE HAPPIEST, HEALTHIEST VERSION OF YOURSELF AND TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE!
You can make all the right healthy choices, but if you don’t have an emotionally healthy relationship with food and your body, you will never truly be the best version of yourself. Yes, food is important, but I believe that HOW you eat is as important as WHAT you eat.
My coaching is for anyone who’s ever struggled to find balance with food and their weight. It’s for those who have been on fad diet after diet, with no success. It’s for anyone who looks in the mirror and feels fat and unworthy. It’s for anyone who has gotten caught in the vicious cycle of self-loathing, stress and emotional eating. I’ve been there myself and that’s why I know this is not a fun place to be stuck in. I want to teach you another way, a kinder way, a way that actually works.
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, my ultimate goal is to teach you supreme self-care and help you be the best version of yourself, both physically and mentally. I will help you heal your relationship with food and your body, and help you live a healthy life in a sustainable and fun way. There are no extreme measures, just sustainable ones.
We will do this by honing in on the emotional factors behind your habits and thought patterns and together work on developing a healthier routine and mindset. Our conversations will go beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love, relationships, career and a spiritual exercise.
I will empower you to take charge of your health and provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. I will work with you on a one-on-one basis to understand your challenges, obstacles and goals and support you in the process by being there every step of the way. We can either do this in person or through Skype sessions. I also offer unlimited email/SMS support between sessions, so you can always message me if you’re in the health store and don’t know what to get or if you feel guilty after indulging into one too many desserts.
Having been through an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia & all the grey areas in between) and many years of emotional eating myself, I know that it can be daunting to leave your old ways behind. And I also know the value of working with someone who’s gone through the same; in fact that is how I started to heal myself. I assure you that you won’t look back once you’ve walked though that door.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned the below principles as well as innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. You can eat all the kale in the world, but if your primary foods aren’t taken care of, you will never be truly healthy and happy.
The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle and personal preferences.
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of “good foods” and “bad foods”. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet.
Cravings are there for a reason and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really trying to tell you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
