I had a loving family and the best of friends and mentors you could imagine. They believed in me, for me.
If only I could believe in myself...
After all the diets and trainers and psychologists and social workers and medication, I finally met MY Health Coach. Don’t get me wrong! I believe in our medical specialists. I support the work of licensed practitioners. They were all a necessary part of my journey. But it was through Health Coaching and Yoga where things began to make sense and create change. All of the pieces were coming together. It was as though everything that I hung onto for dear life, the things I clutched to and believed would and "should" work, no longer served me. Finally, I was ready to let go…breathe …
and begin again.
I wanted tenacity, vitality, curiosity, ferocity, and grace. I wanted joy and love and to laugh often. I wanted to rid myself of the daunting thoughts that followed me, drained me, and dictated my days. I wanted a body I felt good in and was proud of. I wanted to see an end to the negativity in my life as a means to getting “happy”. Most importantly, I wanted to get "there" in a way that reflected my love for movement and my desire to live a beautifully, satisfying, flavorful, fluid, and joyful life.
And so, I began. With the help of my Health Coach, I saw change. I began to feel more confident and live more healthfully. I began to learn how to replaced negative self-talk and began to think more clearly. I began to change things I was unhappy with and I began to heal hurt relationships. I felt inspired, energized, and empowered. Today, my days are happier. I smile more and I laugh more. I take bigger risks and I love my body and treat it with respect more than ever.
In January of 2017, I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach!
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of this work.
I want to support you in attaining whatever it is you seek because YOU CAN have “it”. Whether you seek weight loss, self-confidence, healthier habits, better relationships, or simply change, I understand. I’m here and would be honored to support you.
I believe in the power of laughter, the tenacity of love, the magic in serendipity, a God, the strength of mind over matter, that movement is food for the soul, and that Health (nutrition in all its beautiful layers) ... Is Wealth!
Health and Happiness to YOU always! May you courageously Begin Again!
