Hi Friend,

I’m so glad you’re here.  I am a lifelong learner, passionate about health and wellness!  

 

So let me share with you my journey and how I pulled together so many experiences to land here--a health psychologist who is passionate about working with women so that they, too, can find their best version of themselves!

 

Struggles I experienced: 

- I struggled with food and my weight was a huge part of my childhood and adulthood.

 

- As a child, I started to use food for comfort and soothing.

- I grew up in a single parent household where processed unhealthy foods were a staple.

- I began to struggle with my weight, body image, and self esteem early on.

 

 

I spent the next 3 decades chasing the perfect body through "exercise more and eat less'' mantra. It didn't work. I had thought that I had finally “figured it out” in my mid-30s when I discovered that eating whole unprocessed foods with a rigorous (and unsustainable) workout schedule created the best fitness of my life.  Over the next decade, I got married, had two beautiful children, and resigned from an outstanding career to move across the country for my husband’s career.  Several more transitions later, I saw my weight creeping up until one day I realized, in tears, I was miserable in my body. 

 

As a health psychologist and health & wellness coach, I had many emotions about the fact that I could not get my weight under control. I was frustrated, overwhelmed, and felt defeated.  I had all the tools.  If I was so successful helping others with their wellness journey, why couldn’t I figure out this one aspect of my life for good?  What worked before no longer worked.  So, I hired a weight loss coach and began to heal my own broken relationship with food, my body, and found peace in the journey.

 

Since then, I developed a strategy combined with the right tools that created sustainable change and peace with food and my body.  

I found embracing truth, giving myself grace, and growing faith were critical components of the healing journey.   The 7 core areas of self-care provides a holistic approach to finding that balance we all crave. 

Some of the tools to get to a better you:

 

- Begin to see your physical well-being and the way you curate your thoughts as part of your spiritual journey. 

- Break the diet mentality and you will learn the skills to listen to your body’s cues for hunger and satiety. 

- Lose weight when you stop overeating and eating out of emotion. 

 

As you begin to heal your relationship with your body, food, and self-image, you will also explore the other core areas of well-being and how they interconnect to build a flourishing life.

I want to share this strategy with ALL my tools and teach you how to enjoy living in your body as I believe you were always meant to!

I can't wait to work together!
