I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
Additionally, I attended the Academy of Culinary Nutrition in 2016 and graduated with Honors. This program taught me how to use food as medicine, which foods to eat for optimal, therapeutic nutrition and how to prepare plant-based foods that taste amazing!
I also have a four-year degree in Physical Education & Health from the College of Charleston. I minored in Community Health and spent my early years as a Personal Trainer and managing a resort fitness center.
My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and disease prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with clients like you to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.
Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
I have a home practice in Northern VA, but also work out of Dr. Daniel Amen's office in Reston, VA, on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are not local to me, we can "meet" virtually over the phone or via Skype.
Are you curious about how health coaching can help you? Let’s talk. Schedule an initial consultation with me today.
