Health Coaching

Weight loss or better health may be your primary focus whether you are going through menopause or taking care of small children. As a health coach, I can support you in clarifying your vision and implementing a simple and doable action plan that will lead you to victories well beyond a number on the scale or a smaller size of pants. Here just some of the results my clients receive beyond weight release:

    •    More confidence
    •    Increase in sex drive
    •    Incredible energy
    •    A sense of control and balance
    •    Vitality
    •    Family implementing healthy habits
    •    Quality sleep
    •    Clearer sense of purpose and possibility
    •    Guilt-free living
    •    Strong immune system
    •    Overcoming emotional eating
    •    Ditching the diet mentality
    •    Clear thinking

My Story

I wasn’t ALWAYS overweight or addicted to food. Of course, I didn’t REALIZE this until I was much older, and had actually become overweight (about 60lbs) in college. I recently looked at photos of myself at that young age- nope, NOT FAT! What was I thinking? How did I possibly think and feel that I was SO FAT, I asked myself…Because of society, television, judgemental teenage girls and my constant comparison to them…Because I had no idea what SELF WORTH was and I certainly was never taught how to find it within me...

 

But as I was nearing the end of high school, my family’s dysfunction got worse, and I started to develop a very strong connection with food for comfort. It was my safety, my friend that didn’t yell at me, didn’t judge or criticize me. It was always "there for me", and as long as I was eating, all my stress was put on hold. I didn’t have to solve problems, or deal with emotions. This “solution” to stress continued into college. I proceeded to continue stuffing my stress and by this point I had become addicted to sugar/processed foods. I exercised all the time, but that didn't stop the weight gain.

Fast forward 14 years. I've since lost most of the weight through exercise and cutting down on processed foods and replacing them with whole foods. But for some reason FOOD still seemed to have CONTROL over me, and I just couldn’t release the last 15 pounds.

Enter, my work with a health coach, and THE HEALTHY EDGE online program.

Every health coaching journey is different. Mine was about slowing down and finding my self worth. I also had to get over my VICTIM mindset around getting Chron’s Disease at 32 and blaming all that was wrong in my life on it, and using it as an excuse for some of my habits. Only then was I able to stop the SELF SABOTAGE and become EMPOWERED by my decisions. I now have a healthy relationship with food and I feel AMAZING!

Me, now!

Me, now!


Are you ready to make LASTING changes
to your nutrition and lifestyle,
so that YOU can FEEL AMAZING?


Most of us know what to do. Some of us even do it a fair amount of the time, and yet we still aren’t where we want to be in terms of our health and how we feel.

What does 1 on 1 Health Coaching LOOK Like?

 Each health coaching journey with me is unique and focuses on your particular goals and needs. I combine this with the right amount of structure, emotional support, nutritional education, and opportunities for personal breakthrough.

This is the only program that gets you to look deeper into your habits which are keeping you stuck, so that you can go out and be the healthy energetic person you’ve always wanted to be.


So before we go any further, let's make sure we are on the same page. First and foremost, this isn’t for everyone. This isn’t for you if you are looking for...

    •    A quick fix, diet or fad.
    •    False promises so you can feel better.
    •    Prepackaged meals.
    •    A list of do’s and don’ts, or someone to TELL you what to DO.
    •    Something to do the work for you.
    •    A short-term solution to fit into your dress you just bought for your class reunion.


Are you still there?

If I still have your attention, my coaching style is to be brutally and lovingly honest with you because I’ve spent too much of my time, energy, money and self-esteem doing things that DON’T work. If this sounds like something you are looking for, I would love to spend some time with you to see if working together is a fit!
