You might ask yourself, “Where do I begin.” It’s simple; begin by giving yourself permission to heal.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. It’s not just about your diet. Ask yourself this question: Are you paying attention to your body’s nutritional needs? Your body is speaking to you on an emotional and physical and spiritual level 24/7!
As your health coach, I am ready to listen and open the lines of communication for you to reconnect with your true self. Our wellness journey begins with your intention to heal from within. 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 will look at how all the intricate parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
“I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy 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 will improve your energy, balance, and health.

In today’s world visualization, positive thinking and emotional healing through various modalities gives us clarity, focus and relaxed mind.
Self care and body treatments:
Self care in often neglected or limited due to the busy schedule everyone has. Taking the time to do body massage, dry skin brushing, swishing with oil, tongue scraping, and using products that has zero chemicals are essential for self care. Physical and oral hygiene should be our top priorities. If proper oral hygiene is not maintained it may lead to high blood pressure or other heart diseases. I have used diluted essential oils with my home made toothpaste. Swishing with unprocessed sesame seed oil also has benefits.
Holistic approach is simply using things that are easily available to you and being mindful. When you take that extra care to eat healthy, do physical exercise and connect with our spiritual state of mind you will absolutely have the best days ever and a longer healthier life to look forward to. It is simple, easy, economical, sustainable and above all brings you peace. So why not give it a try?
