Your Path to Healing
When we give ourselves the conditions in which we, as a species, have evolved to thrive, we awaken our body's innate potential to heal.
A s a health coach, my goal is to help you make lasting and effective lifestyle changes based on ancestral wisdom, modern science, and everyday common sense.
Rather than focusing on individual symptoms, my approach is to craft an overall lifestyle which supports our health from the bottom up, addressing aspects such as food, sleep, reducing
exposure to toxins, spending time in nature, addressing unresolved emotions or trauma, cultivating a healthy mindset, nourishing a connection to something larger than ourselves, finding or creating a supportive community, and pursuing activities that give us a sense of meaning and purpose.
This lifestyle is great for prevention, and it also allows us to start unravelling the root causes of pre-existing conditions. We move from reactive to proactive.
I can help you take charge of your health!
I welcome you with compassion and empathy wherever you are in your health journey.
My coaching style
My job is to help you figure out the "Why, What, and How"of your own personal wellness, and to provide support and accountability. See the details of each step below...
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. 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. If not, we'll work together to make a plan. We'll choose one or two things to start with - small steady changes are the key to making healthy habits stick!

Then we’ll break down the steps of "How" to create effective and lasting habits that fit your unique lifestyle. I’ll help you to set meaningful and manageable goals, and you’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.
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!
