I practice a holistic approach to health and well-being which includes looking at how all the areas of your life are connected. I believe optimal health is a balance of the physical, emotional, and spiritual areas of your life fueled by movement, healthy eating and living intentionally. My goal is to create a safe and nonjudgmental space for us to take an honest look at your current lifestyle patterns, and then build a plan for success based on what you would like to achieve in terms of health and wellness. As we work together, you will gain a better understanding of your body, how it moves, and what lifestyle choices work best for you; and this knowledge will carry over to lasting changes to improve your energy, balance, and health.
Here are a couple key concepts that are foundational to what I do:
Bio-IndividualityTM : Each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. What works for one may not work for another, and this is often the problem behind fad diets and trendy fitness classes. One person has great success with a certain program and sells it as the cure for all people, but it is not optimal or sustainable for all. Through this principle of bio-individuality, I will support you to determine what changes are most effective and beneficial for you based on your unique needs, lifestyle, and preferences. This individualized approach is what helps ensure that you will succeed!
Primary FoodTM : Healthy living is not just about the food we eat, but includes all of the other factors present in our daily lives. It involves healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and spirituality. These “primary foods” are essential forms of nourishment, and when they are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in determining what areas of your life may need more attention and coach you to make the changes necessary to living a more balanced and fulfilled life!
