I learned at a young age that unhealthy food could be a reward for my unresolved inner pain and as a result I experienced my own struggles with disordered eating. This included calorie restriction, binging, compulsive exercising and other self-destructive behaviors.
Through hard work and help from others I learned how to be free of my unhealthy cravings and the critical and negative self talk which accompanies bad food choices and unhealthy body image. I know what it’s like to view food as either good or bad. I know what it’s like to struggle with self-esteem and the confusion around what to eat and what not to eat and how to make sense of the latest fads and trends in diet and exercise. I REALLY KNOW what a miserable waste of life food and body image obsession can be! It can shatter your hopes and dreams and rob you of the vibrant life you so deserve.
As a wellness coach, I love helping clients customize their lifestyle to enhance their health and well-being. I am uniquely qualified to support those who want to move towards a whole foods, plant-centered diet. This type of diet reduces chronic inflammation, optimizes nutrition and boosts vitality throughout the body.
It’s because of all my experiences; my successes, my failures and learning to love and advocate for myself that I am now able to share my gifts with the world through health and wellness coaching. I believe that each of us is here for his or her own purpose with gifts that we must share into the world. Who are you to be small?
