My coaching style

My goal with clients is to encourage and promote positive, sustainable, and realistic lifestyle and behavior change through self-discovery and education. I believe that the journey to wellness is unique for each individual, and as a result, my counseling approach is customized around you - your health goals, challenges, and wellness aspirations. I do not believe in fad diets, a one-meal-plan-fits-all approach, or starvation calorie plans. Instead you can expect our counseling sessions to be a space to be heard and respected, and a space for brainstorming, learning, goal setting, celebrating achievements, exploring barriers, and finding inspiration.
