Health Coaching | Your Program

Achieve an energized, balanced and healthy life in ways that are flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline!



Personalized Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching Program!

Have you ever received good advice that you were unable to follow? Has your doctor ever recommended a lifestyle change that you found to be unsustainable? Have you noticed that no one ‘diet’ works for everyone? Have you ever wanted something in your life but found you couldn’t achieve it alone?

Health Coaches are knowledgeable advisors who provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable, lifelong changes that improve your health and happiness. I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are interconnected.  Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy leave you less productive or prevent you from exercising? Together we’ll discover how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole, so that you develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you to accomplish your health goals.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins, and it is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you so that you can live an energized, balanced and passionate life. I will create a supportive environment and coach you in ways that are flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

Whether you’re seeking support and guidance on preventative health measures or to address specific health concerns, invite me to create a personalized coaching program that will radically improve your health and happiness for a lifetime!

Jumpstart your weight loss or health and wellness program with my Cleansing and Detoxifying 7 day Chinese Herbal Cleanse!

Are you suffering from digestive issues, inflammation, low energy or feeling foggy headed? 

With the changing of the seasons, Mother Nature cleanses herself and prepares for the next season.  You are an integral part of nature and with that you’ll experience much benefit from following her lead.  Cleanses, as the term implies, are designed to clean the digestive tract, remove unwanted toxins that have built up in your systems and organs, and to return your PH levels to an alkaline state.  In doing so, you’ll greatly reduce the inflammation that ravages your body!  Inflammation as we know is the foundation from which illness and disease manifests from.  Eliminating inflammation at the cellular level allows you to effectively reduce the potential for disease, thereby increasing your ability to control the aging process and ultimately restore your vitality! 

While cleansing is recommended with the changing of each season, it is paramount that you cleanse twice yearly at a minimum.  The optimal times are from Summer to Fall as you move from lighter, raw foods to heavier cooked foods.  And then again as you move from Winter to Spring as you move from heavier cooked foods to lighter, raw foods.  Cleanses allow you to not only clear the decks, but to prepare your body to function at its optimum as it copes with the demands of seasonal weather changes and stressors.

While there are many cleanses to choose from on the market, you’ll find that you experience greater success when being guided and supported by a trained professional.  My 7 day Chinese Herbal Cleanse is the perfect step to take in order to jumpstart your journey towards renewed health before starting any weight loss or health and wellness plan.  Invite me to guide you through this non-fasting cleanse!  That’s right, no starvation here!  You’ll be eating well-chosen foods that clear your digestion and set you on a road towards alkalinizing your body, as you reduce your inflammation, increase your energy and clear your head.  This cleanse is recommended especially for you if your goal is to safely and successfully lose those extra pounds!

Your Cleanse includes:

  • Daily coaching with group support via phone for your convenience
  • Effective instructions and handouts that guide and support you during your cleanse
  • Organic, sustainably harvested Chinese herbs
  • Private post-cleanse wrap up discussion via phone for your convenience
  • My personal commitment to your health and success!

Safely track the progress of any health and wellness program as you take control of the aging process and restore your vitality with BioImpedence Analysis!

Your scale only tells a fraction of the true story! ‘One of the most powerful lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk to common chronic diseases of aging is related to improving your body composition; lean body mass to body fat ratio.  BIA is a simple, rapid and accurate method of assessing full body composition that uses electric signals at different frequencies, which are impeded variably by body water, fat and fat-free mass.’* BIA testing is recommended for those who: desire to lose weight safely and sustainably; have high blood pressure, triglyceride levels, insulin levels, LDLs and blood pressure; are insulin insensitive/resistant or diabetic; have low HDL or suffer from Sarcopenia (wasting of muscles). Utilize this physician preferred procedure if you would like to safely track the progress of any health and wellness program as you take control of the aging process and restore your vitality.** Your BIA test includes a Nutrition and Lifestyle Health Assessment!

**Hand-held or step-on testing equipment typically used by personal trainers and many physicians tell only half the story, as they test only the upper or lower half the body!
