My approach to nutrition focuses on nourishing your whole self: body, mind, and spirit. Together we will focus on how to nourish your unique and amazing body through individualized support. First and foremost, I will listen to your story, background, goals and past barriers to better health to gain a better sense of your needs. We’ll work together toward achieving your individual goals for a happy and balanced life.
As a nutrition coach, I keep the focus on adding health — not deprivation or diets. My role is to motivate and help you succeed at a pace that works for you. Along the way we’ll develop clear and achievable goals, or action steps, for you to work on in between sessions. These goals help track your progression and make healthy lifestyle changes seem natural.
I understand there is complexity behind each individual’s needs. What works for you may be different than what works for your best friend, sister or co-worker. Whole food choices geared toward your specific needs can change your physical and mental health and are a large part of furthering your path to wellness. Through dietary monitoring and testing I am able to identify your unique nutrient and genomic (gene expression) makeup. In doing so, we can implement targeted food and nutrition interventions to optimize nutrient metabolism and lower your risk of chronic disease.
I also realize that in order to make change possible, you may need cooking and recipe support. When foods are not enough, reputable and safe supplements may be recommended to support optimal health.
