Master Nutrition and Self Development Coach
It was 2008 when I finally came to terms with the fact that my level of stress, food, and alcohol choices were getting in the way of me showing up in the way I wanted to. My digestion was out of whack, I had a nagging pain related to an old injury, I was exhausted....you get the picture.
The last thing that I wanted to believe was that eating baked goods every day, or a nightly glass of wine could have anything to do with my ongoing inflammation and indigestion! But when no amount of acupuncture treatments showed any long-term results, it was reckoning time. After experiencing the short-term benefits of an elimination diet and also wanting to feel good in the long run, I dove head-first into the world of health.
During my certification program as a Nutritional Counselor, I learned all about how our bodies respond to food and substances. Soon enough, I realized that the facts alone weren't enough to inspire change. So much of it boiled down to the mind. I went on to study NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Processing), Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and Life Coaching to help understand this mental piece at a deeper level. In the years I've spent working with clients and myself, I've learned that it's not always a straight-forward path, but that our bodies have an innate ability to change and grow, despite whatever habits we've developed. Whether you're struggling with digestive issues, energy, anxiety, weight-loss, or just wanting to "uplevel", I'd love to be a part of your greater health journey!
