“The Bhagavad Gita--that ancient Indian Yogic text--says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
My story is too long for one about page…
But in short, I’ll give you some insight into who I am and how I got here. I am parent. I am a wife. I’m an artist who has pretended not to be for many years. For a long time, I thought that the right man, the right amount of money, or the right career would bring me complete happiness. I thought a lot of things…
I love to learn about the human body and how to make it healthier, better, and stronger. I have a passion for supporting others towards making healthier eating and lifestyle choices. In the past 10 years I have completed certifications for Holistic Health Coaching, Medicinal Aromatherapy, and fitness instruction. I’ve studied and sold natural cosmetics, supplements, and essential oils for years. Currently, I’m spending more time on my spiritual life, my family, my health, and a select number of clients.
I believe in balance. I believe in eating whole, organic foods. I hate going to the gym. I love going for walks. I hate beets and fermented foods. I believe in sleep, stress management, really good-quality supplementation, and drinking clean water.
I worry about things. I feel guilty for things. I am not perfect. I am strong. I am always learning. I am becoming more accepting, more creative, and wiser each day. I strive to find the good in each experience and to treat others as I want to be treated.
When I work with clients, I focus on 5 extremely obviously yet often overlooked areas of wellness:
How you sleep
What you drink
How and how often you move your body
The need for organic, whole, plant-based foods. We spend a lot of time on this.
When to eat your meals and why
If you feel like our styles mesh and that you would like to work together to get your wellness on track, we can meet over the phone or via Facetime using this link here, and set up time to work together on a session by session basis. Over the years, I have found what works and what doesn’t based on the ebbs and flows of life, feedback from others, and listening to my body and my intuition. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or book a wellness session with me here when you’re ready.
If you take anything away from visiting my website today, take away this:
Trust your gut. Trust the connection between your heart, your mind, and your full body. For a long time, I really struggled with discerning what was right for me, for my physical body, and for my life in general.
I am letting go of the expectations, relationships, foods, and habits that are not supporting me towards the direction and place I want to be in. And I encourage you to do the same.
If your health, weight, and personal struggles have led you here, maybe we have a shot at working together to make things better for you. If this is resonating with you, send me a message to talk more or book a wellness session with me here when you’re ready.
If you don’t know how to trust your gut, we can work on that too. It’s something that I’m still working on, both literally and physically. I believe we all need a support system. I believe that we MUST do what’s best for us in life, even if others don’t always agree. I believe we each need to take care of our own bodies (for we only have been given one) and that we cannot be any good at parenting, in our relationships, or in our work unless we are healthy in our minds and bodies. So…
Take care of yourself!
