Approach

Heart-centered coaching

As a heart-centered coach, I ask a lot of questions and listen carefully to your answers. My primary intention is to tap your expert knowledge of yourself in helping you to draw the connection between your current symptoms, your health history, and your choices.

My job is to help you to identify your options and figure out what works best for your well-being, including specific changes you would like to make realistically, step by step, to achieve your health goals.

In an important sense, while you sit in the proverbial driver’s seat of your life and health, I, your Health Coach, serve as a type of navigator to help you successfully reach your destination. We work together as a team.

Integrative and functional approach

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life connect and affect your overall health. Not just your diet, though of course that matters too. This is about whether you are being nourished, or undermined, by the various strands of the your life’s web.

For example, does stress at your job or in your relationships cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Is your schedule too busy for contact with nature, which can influence your health in important ways? You get the idea. One aspect of your life may be interfering with another, which impacts your ability to be well.

Together we’ll strive to reach your health goals in areas such as maximizing your physical energy, reducing brain fogginess or forgetfulness, clearing your skin rashes, achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, healing digestive woes. You have a different area of concern?  Great, I look forward to hearing about it.

My approach does not dwell on calories or grams of carbs, fats, and proteins. Nor do I issue lists of restrictions or of “good” and “bad” foods or other lifestyle choices. After all, what works well for one person may cause damage for another. What works for you will be particular to you.

What I do dwell on, through our collaborative efforts, is helping you develop a deeper understanding of what’s going on inside your body and the specific food and lifestyle factors that work best for you given your unique body and circumstances. I will support you in implementing lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance, and overall health.
