My Approach


I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques like self-care, meditation, daily movement, learning to slow down, acquiring better sleep, and over 100 dietary theories. I studied with some of the top leaders in nutrition, spiritual practice and top wellness and nutrition experts, such as,  Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd, Deepak Chopra, MD, Mark Hyman, MD, David Wolfe and many more.

Here are some of the unique ways that I will help you make lasting lifestyle changes:

Primary Food & Secondary FoodsTM

 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 that affects our health, 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.

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us 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.

Deconstructing Cravings
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored.
Your cravings aren't "bad" they are actually a small clue into your body's way of telling you what it really needs.
When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.

"Crowding Out"
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition.
My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods.
Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.
I am not going to tell you to stop something "bad" if it is supporting at this time.
