Please feel free to check out my
believe in wholeness. I believe that your health is dependent on everything you put into your mind, body and soul.
I realize that wellness is much more than just diet and nutrition. The body is complex and every system is so interconnected, including the thinking mind, the feeling heart and the spiritual soul. I am devoted to helping people achieve WHOLE wellness with a very supportive customized approach.
I believe that the foods we eat are actually secondary to the things that contribute to our overall wellness. Our Primary Nourishment, where we will begin our focus, include all of those things that help you to lead a healthy, vibrant, energetic lifestyle. Aspects of life such as hobbies and leisure time, movement, rest, home cooking and relationships. When those things are in balance we naturally find ourselves making healthier food choices because we are at peace in our lives, we find ourselves in a healthy relationship with food, we are honoring our bodies and we are feeling healthy and happy.
I strive to teach my clients that they should no longer use food in a punishment/reward cycle, to not feel guilty for eating delicious food and to begin to enjoy food again. We live in a society that uses food for celebrations, for comfort, for showing love and for socializing. And while I believe food is much more than simply "fuel", I want to take food out of the spot light.
Our body is so very complex and the processes required to keep us healthy heavily rely on proper nutrients. There are so many ways to do this and I will work closely with each individual to find their own "right way". My goal is to help my clients to figure out what that "ideal" is for them and create a plan to get there, with a caring support system that motivates and inspires.
