My Approach

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means I explore all areas of your life and assess how they’re inter-connected.  Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat?  Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?  As we work together, we’ll look at how every part of your life affects your health as a whole.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins.  It’s not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods.  Instead, I help you create a happy, healthy life pathway that’s flexible, fun and rewarding for you and your journey through life.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy.  As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that’ll improve your energy, balance and health.

Here are some concepts that we’ll explore during our work together:

Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs.  One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to eventually fail.  Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you in making positive changes based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.  I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

Primary Food: It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment.  It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives.  Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment.  When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.  I’ll support you in achieving all your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

integrative-nutrition-plateIntegrative Nutrition Plate: The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water.  It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size.  To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality.  I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body and lifestyle!
