I was a yo-yo dieter for about 25 years! With each diet I tried, the more miserable I felt when the weight I’d lost returned always including a little ‘interest’! I felt trapped.
About 10 years ago I finally figured out that it was my unbalanced relationship with food and fitness (all or nothing thinking – I was either being ‘good’ or ‘bad’) that was tripping me up. I started to become more flexible and balanced in the way I thought about food and fitness and also began to meet my emotional needs in other ways besides food. It was a transformative experience and I finally felt free – free to live a vibrant life.
Because of my own journey and the passion to help other people with food relationship challenges, I became a certified professional health & wellness coach, mindful eating coach and certified personal trainer. My role as a coach is to partner with and empower my clients to take life-changing sustainable action for optimal wellbeing. I help my clients break though whatever is holding them back from realizing their vision of their best selves. We explore and transform those beliefs, thoughts and feelings that keep them trapped – freeing themselves to live vibrantly!
The Am I Hungry?® approach to mindful eating is in alignment with my philosophy to sustainable weight management and freeing you from being stuck in the yo-yo’s of diet. I offer workshops as well as one-on-one Am I Hungry?® mindful eating coaching. I coach my clients over the phone or through a Skype-like software platform, so I connect with people all across the United States as well as across the globe. Regardless of your physical location, we can work together. So let’s get started!
Accreditation: I received my health coach, personal training, fitness nutrition, weight management specialist and behavior change specialist certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and American Council on Exercise (ACE). I received my professional wellness coach certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited Coaching Program. In addition, I am an ICF credentialed coach and a national board certified health & wellness coach.
