My approach to coaching clients is first and foremost understanding. I take a firm and honest approach when giving guidance. I take pride in being able to connect with clients on a deeper level to help them achieve the balance in life that they are seeking. I search for the root cause of what is the imbalance issues in the body. Approaching each client with the mindset of body, mind and spirit in guidance leads them on a path of healing, joy and wellness that they can continue for the rest of their lives. I practice multiple deep breathing techniques, meditation and tai chi. I feel it is of the utmost importance to incorporate stress reducing techniques into my coaching. I specialize in gut healing. The reason for most chronic inflammation is due to poor gut health. I do not have a one size fits all approach. Each person is a genetic individual and I guide them as such.
My education for coaching started at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am currently working towards my master’s in health Coaching. Since graduating, I have developed a Wellness program for grades K-12. This program is available to 52 school districts in NY. It is a curriculum designed for students and staff, teaching them on a monthly basis how to feed and nurture their body, mind and spirit. Integrating organic gardening and meditation into everyday school life. I host weekend Wellness retreats. Each retreat has a different health/relationship topic. I cook and prepare all organic food and drink for the retreat. I teach health workshops at a wellness education center called Phountain. We teach all about how to live long and well. Personal life experiences: I went through a time of about 20 years dealing with an eating disorder. Coming out of that healed with realizing gut health is the most important part to concentrate on. After having children, I dealt with extreme hormone imbalance. The symptoms are different for everyone. It can cause the whole body to get thrown off balance. This I feel is something most women are being affected by and don’t even know it.
I like to keep things light when appropriate. It makes for having an easy relationship with the client. I am very active and love to ski and hike. On my retreats there is always a major hike up the mountain on the itinerary. I have children and have been happily married for 15 years.
