My Training

​​I  graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned  innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free,  and Paleo, to raw, vegan, macrobiotic, and everything in between.

I  received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition,  where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle  coaching methods. From there, I obtained an Emotion Code certification, delved into mind-body connections, spent vast amount of time working with essential oils and biofeedback, and joined Tree of Life to work on healing and deliverance. With my knowledge, you and I will co-create a completely  personalized action plan based on your goals. We will move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources. 

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in  holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive care.

My Approach

I practice a holistic approach to health  and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are  connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to  overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?  Have past experiences emotionally triggered physical ailments? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect you as a whole.

We will team up in helping you create a happy, healthy life that is obtainable, meaningful ,and rewarding. We will not dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. We won't create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, the focus will be you and your goals. We will customize a realistic and  achievable plan.

Together we'll work towards your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, recovering from past traumas, regaining control of your happiness, increasing sleep, and maximizing  energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of  the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your vitality, livelihood ,and overall wellness.

Integrative Nutrition® Plate
The  Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and  organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and  emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete  the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity, and  spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the  planet, and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!

Primary Food
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. I will  support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods  for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

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 in making positive  changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and  ancestral background.

Crowding Out
Many  nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition.  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. This takes a little practice, but I will support you all  the way.

Deconstructing Cravings
Cravings  play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t  be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings, and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a  sense of balance and harmony.
