Your Path to Health
I believe that the path to health is to mimic, as best as possible within modern constraints, the conditions in which our species evolved to thrive. By applying ancestral wisdom, evolutionary biology, and common sense in order to re-align ourselves with Nature, healing happens naturally.
Rather than focusing on specific symptoms, my approach is to craft an overall lifestyle which supports health, including aspects such as food, sleep, movement, relaxing the nervous system, reducing exposure to toxins, and cultivating a healthy mindset and heartset. This lifestyle allows greater resilience to stress and resistance to both chronic and infectious disease. We move from reactive to proactive.

My coaching approach
My job is to help you figure out the Why, What, and How of wellness, and to provide support and accountability.
First, I will help you find your why - the reason you want vibrant health. Your why is the motivation that will help you stick to your plan even on days when you just don’t feel like it. Who are you? What are your strengths and values, your dreams? What do you want your your future to look like?
Next, we’ll work together to decide what aspects of a healthy lifestyle interest you, and will benefit you the most. We all know we need to eat healthy food, exercise more, and reduce stress, but it can be hard to sort through all the conflicting advice. Low carb? Vegetarian? Paleo? And that's just the diet! The truth is that while there are many universals, what is best for you, and how you implement it in your own life will be absolutely unique. You may already have ideas, or you might have recommendations from your health care provider. If so, we’ll start there.
Then we’ll dive into how to create effective and lasting habits that fit your unique lifestyle. I’ll help you to set meaningful and manageable goals, and we’ll decide how you will measure and celebrate success. We all need help along the way, so we’ll build in support and accountability. Finally, I’ll make sure you have access to all the concepts, tools and information you’ll need in order to learn and practice the new skills that support your goals, like cooking, or meditation.
Now you’ll dive in and give your new plan a try. It’s important to be kind to yourself, and celebrate your progress, and also recognize that issues may arise along the way. That’s OK. Follow-up appointments are great for support, accountability, and for help troubleshooting and adjusting your plan. And when you feel you have mastered one area, you can choose new goals!
