What is a Health Coach? 

A Health Coach supports our clients to achieve their health goals (as varied as they may be), through lifestyle and behavior modifications. 

As your Health Coach I will be practicing a holistic approach to health and wellness,  this means looking at how all areas of your life are connected.  Does stress at home or in your job exhaust you and prevent you from exercising?  Does lack of sleep cause you to overeat?  Together, we will look at how all parts of your life connect to affect your health as a whole.

My approach is to not fixate on calorie counting, carbohydrates, proteins, or fats.  It is not about restriction, where we will create lists of good and bad foods.  As we work together, we will implement lasting habits that will improve your energy, balance, and health.  I work with my clients to make peace with food (all food), to create a happy, healthy way of living that is not rigid but instead, enjoyable and rewarding.

We will work together as a team to ensure you achieve all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:

Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person 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 to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

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, 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.

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!
