My Philosophy of Care

I have a client centered approach. I practice through the lens of Intuitive Eating and Positive Intelligence. As a nurse for 20+ years and group fitness instructor for nearly 20 years, I am familiar with toxic wellness and fitness culture, and the harm that providers in these fields cause for people everywhere. I absolutely validate my clients experiences - especially those in large bodies who are shamed at their doctors appointments or told to try another diet. People often come to me scared that they causing or worsening their own health outcomes. I have connected with providers in my community who practice from a HAES® perspective and with whom I have had conversations about the need for inclusive HAES® care that focuses on the person, not their weight. I practice from this perspective, and help my clients learn how to respect their "right now body", learn how to trust themselves around food, learn to enjoy food, find movement that they enjoy (if they want), so that ultimately they can free up the mental and emotional energy to LIVE THEIR LIVES. This is my why... as a former Oncology and Hospice Nurse I know that we get one shot to live this life. When people are able to trust themselves and respect their bodies, they get to do the things in their lives that are really powerful. And it affects everyone around them! Kids, partners, friends, family. It is such a gift to be able to work with my clients!

About Me & My Practice

I came into the world of HAES® and Intuitive Eating in 2020 and have never looked back. I was practicing as a "typical" Health and Life Coach, recommending food diaries and checking body circumference... until I heard Evelyn Tribole on a podcast. Her work/Intuitive Eating landed with me immediately and made complete sense in how I had to change my work with clients. I am constantly reading, listening to podcasts, learning through continuing education, making connections with HAES® aligned practitioners and advocating for my clients and everyone else so that we can shift the culture out of the harm of diet and toxic wellness culture and into compassion, trust and advocating for social justice and accessibility to improve health and wellness. I have done some work with businesses and hope to expand that to be able to serve more and more people!
