Health Counseling is a unique, exciting innovation in health and nutrition.
As a Health Coach, I have studied all the major dietary theories and will help you discover what approach works best for you at this point in your life. While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline!
I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support YOU! I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
A holistic approach …I practice a holistic approach to nutrition, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. 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, you look at how all parts of your life affect the whole.
No one diet works for everyone… The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has their own nutritional needs. So, when the experts say, “dairy is good for you” or “fat is unhealthy,” it’s too much of a generalization. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets don’t work in the long run. Iwill look at your age, health, activity level, blood type, metabolic rate and personal preferences to determine your dietary needs.
Everything is food… Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual practice are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.
