Meet Perfectly Imperfect Me

I humbly stand before you in all my imperfection…writing, speaking, sharing, and coaching.  Not trying to have all the answers.  Not thinking that I am a perfect example. Rather opening my heart to say…I will walk beside you and guide you with compassion.  I will be fully present when we speak.  I will not judge you.  I will pray for you and your concerns.  I will tell you when I do not know and explore options with you.

What are your concerns?  Are you struggling with stress?  Do you feel stuck in your life?  Are you properly nourishing your body, mind, and spirit?  Is your relationship with food challenging?  Are you burdened with an unreasonable inner critic?  Are you preoccupied with your body image?  Are you confused with all the conflicting information out there? Are you overwhelmed with the business of “busy-ness”?  As a Life and Integrative Health Coach I practice a holistic approach to these concerns.

 

My signature program, CULTIVATING C.H.I. is for you, if you feel stuck when dealing with issues pertaining to your physical body, spiritual being, relationships, and/or your professional life. CULTIVATING C.H.I. is based on the understanding that we are beings of INTEGRITY, meaning whole, not segmented. To live a healthy whole life we must nurture all areas of our lives. Our goal is to develop CLARITY in our thoughts, words, and actions. To prioritize what is important to us and to break through old patterns of behaviors  by taking small sustainable steps CONGRUENT and in HARMONY with our INTEGRITY to cultivate ease and flow throughout all areas of our lives.

 

Isn’t it time to CULTIVATE  PEACE  OVER  PERFECTION?

 

 

I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a multitude of dietary theories and  a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Some of my most memorable instructors included Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Geneen Roth, and Marilena Minucci.  Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

In addition, I am a certified teacher, certified Master Gardener, experienced weight loss consultant, dedicated yogi, and fitness buff.

Are you ready to explore and get curious?  Let’s chat.
