I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship(s) cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Does dealing with finances stress you out? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book. Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
I became a health coach out of necessity to help myself heal. In 2015, I became very ill from Lyme Disease and Hashimotos (although I didn't know it at the time). All I wanted to do was sleep. I had no energy. I couldn’t focus. I started to forget simple things. Western doctors were not helping. I finally sought help from various alternative medicine doctors and started to get some answers. That set me on the path to do as much research as I could to understand what was going on. I have spent years researching health topics and experimenting on myself. I believed so strongly in what I was doing that I decided to end my career in the financial services industry and follow my passion. I have become certified as an Integrative Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), with a specialty in hormone health. I am also a Certified International Health Coach. Lastly, I am completing certification in Mastering Ayurvedic Digestion & Nutrition. It is my goal to get as many people healthy as I can.
Personal finance has also been something I enjoyed. I received an accounting degree and then went on to get my MBA in finance. I spent many years working in the investment area of a large financial organization and am licensed in securities and insurance. I am also a part time instructor at a local university where I teach various finance, personal finance and business classes. I have raised my large family mostly as a single mom so I know the struggles of having to budget and figuring out how to save for a goal. I have also had several businesses and have done all the accounting for them
I have 9 children (all birthed by me) ranging in age from 13-37. As you can imagine, I have learned a lot over the years and have gone through many different experiences. I used to be an ultra-runner prior to getting sick. I’d spend hours running in the woods and have many 50ks, marathons and other races under my belt in various states. Most of my children are also runners.
Are you struggling with how to set up a budget, reach a financial goal, or how to get out of debt? I can help you!

I can help you set up a budget to meet your needs and it can be as detailed as you would like. Do you want a plan to get out of debt quicker? I have a template that we can use that is a surefire plan to get you out of debt as quickly as possible. Are you hoping to save for something special? A house, education, special vacation? Together we can create a plan that will help you reach that goal. I am also available to help you navigate other personal financial topics such as improving your credit score, determining if you should refinance, lease or buy, etc. I will hold you accountable and talk through issues that have held you back in the past.

As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way. It’s easy to overlook all the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

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.

I can offer understanding and an unbiased view on the situation. Talking the client through the beginning, middle and guiding them through till the end. Helping them realize for themselves that we are always changing and growing. Getting the client into the best-balanced mindset they can achieve to make the most positive decisions. Giving tools and suggestions that they can incorporate into everyday life.
I will offer an Integrative approach to coaching health and nutrition. I coach clients individually. There is no one size fits all when it comes to your health and wellbeing. The client will get personal guidance and understanding. I focus on gut healing and excel in guiding clients on a healing path.
I like to work very quickly so we can get as much done as possible within a session. I am certified by Rori Raye to use her tools, as well as my own to help clients through a variety of dating and relationship issues.
I enjoy a relaxed and fun session where we connect as people, but also get plenty of work done!
After two divorces, and several other failed relationships, I felt like love just wasn’t for me. I had nearly given up completely when a friend introduced me to Rori Raye’s Modern Siren. I immediately started applying her methods and saw a significant change in the type of relationships I was attracting. I began to feel more confident and actually believe I was capable of a healthy, strong relationship.
Once I saw the dramatic change I was able to create in my own life, I knew I had to share this with the world! I contacted Rori and began to train with her to help others achieve the kind of changes I have experienced first hand.
I have worked closely with Rori to create my own program “Write Your Own Love Story.” and I work with clients from around the world to help them achieve the Happily Ever After they deserve.
After growing up in the mid-west, I recently relocated to Colorado to run my Directional Drilling Company.
I am also a Massage Therapist and Energy Healer.
I have 3 Dogs and a Hedgehog.

My coaching style is a whole life balanced approach. I look at the human body in its entirety. My job is to identify key areas where imbalance may lie causing discomfort, unhappiness or strain on the body. It could be anything from a food allergy to lack of sleep and it causes a ripple effect on your entire wellbeing. By using a whole-body approach, removing toxins and addictive substances and substituting them with whole nourishing foods and managing stress= we can greatly take care of underlying causes of weight gain, fatigue and even dis-ease.
Since there is no “one size fits all” approach to healthy living, we’ll take a deep look into what challenges you may be facing and together create a plan that includes action steps with attainable goals tailored to your routine and what works best with your body. As your Health and Wellness Coach, I am here to help you achieve your goals, to cheer you on, to provide guidance and support, empower you, motivate you and to give you that nudge when you need it; but most importantly to listen. I want you to feel heard and I want nothing more than to see you succeed.
I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and have earned my certificate as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Five years ago, I was obese, unhealthy and unhappy. I had lived a lifetime of bullying, dealt with the emotional and mental strain of being obese, and constant yo-yo dieting and was fed up. I was tired of living on the sidelines of life. I chose to take control of my life; to live it, to participate in it and not only enjoy it, but to live life to its full potential.
What I learned was I had to get tough and I had to get real with myself. Real with my food, which meant cutting out processed foods and harmful chemicals and eating whole, real foods instead. Real with moving my body; so I started walking five days a week and the most important; getting real with myself. Knowing where I started in my journey was ok, if I slipped up- it was ok, learning self-love, self-acceptance and enjoying the moments all my journey.
I lost 90 pounds and it’s that passion that guided me to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Yoga teacher, so I can help others with whatever troubles or guidance that they need in their lives, so they can be their happiest, healthiest selves.
Growing up I would make every excuse to get out of gym- now I love to work out! Those endorphins give me so much energy and make my body feel powerful, it does wonders for my sleep and is a fantastic stress reliever! I've recently obtained my RYT-200 (registered Yoga Teacher) and Accessible Yoga teacher certification. I am currently working on my Master's to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner.
Have you ever dreamed of traveling the world or going back to school after having a child? Do you ever feel that it may never come to fruition? You might not know where it is you want life to take you or possibly where to even begin. Sometimes we may not even have a clear picture of what it is we want to do; or sometimes there are so many to choose from. Both are perfectly normal. That’s where I come in. Together we’ll navigate through those dreams and ideas and make clear pictures of your goals and then create doable action plans so you can start achieving those dreams!
How would you feel if you could sit with someone you could talk to someone that really understands what you’re feeling physically and emotionally? Someone who has been there before? Someone who has walked a similar path before you and can help identify destructive eating patterns, negative body image issues, trigger areas around food, cravings and the emotions that tied up in food. Then help you create manageable plans that would address the challenges you face and be there for you as you go through your journey; to help keep you accountable to yourself and to work through the emotions of learning to love yourself as you are as you transform all areas of your health, while you re-balance yourself, gain confidence in learning to listen and trust your body and moving forward with your goals. That's exactly what I can do for you!
Working with a Health and Nutrition Coach is having someone there for you 1:1. I am there to help you achieve your health and wellness goals, to cheer you on, to provide guidance and support, empower you, motivate you, to give you that nudge when you need it and most importantly, to listen. As a Health Coach, I will be your biggest cheerleader so you will start to feel your best through your food and lifestyle changes. I want nothing more than to see you succeed!

My approach to coaching involves powerful self-discovery for those working with me. The questions I ask are chosen very carefully to lead you to epiphanies that make your next steps easier. I am an encyclopedia of information and ideas, so I like to provide quick info about options you may not know you had. That way you can make the most well-informed decisions. My goal is always to help my clients reach THEIR goal. The session format is safe and methodical as I will listen thoroughly, help you dig deeper, and then prompt you to select action steps you will take in order to work towards the goal you have in mind. To get the best results, it is important that you are willing to get a bit outside of your comfort zone during the session and in relation to the action steps you choose. At the end of a session you will have clarity on what you want, how to make it happen, and the first steps to take.

Your body and mind are one-hundred percent unique! This means that what you eat and the way you care for yourself should be just as unique. With education in over 100 dietary theories and an extensive knowledge of how food affects the body, coaching clients about health and nutrition is my sweet-spot. Vegan/plant-based nutrition is my favorite, but in any case, I’d love to help you find out what your mind and body need most to feel vibrant. Food is only one piece of the puzzle in terms of health, so prepare to talk about other areas of your well-being that impact what you’re wanting to achieve. It’s my job to help you find the connections!

When I coach a client, I pay close attention to their wants and needs. My goal is to get everyone to "Be their best at every age". We are all unique individuals and what works for one does not work for another. I adapt to each person and help find the missing link to guide them to their best self.
B.A. in Communications, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Certified International Health Coach (CIHC) from International Association for Health Coaches.
I have worked in the wellness field for over 10 years. I have coached clients who were looking to enhance their overall wellness as well as those who were dealing with conditions that needed major lifestyle changes (Diabetes, Cancer, Thyroid diseases and many autoimmune diseases). My own life experience has brought me to helping others with their health and wellness. When I was a child I would constantly get sick. I was told I had a "weak stomach". In my late teens and as a young adult I was given prescriptions for all sorts of medicines to help with my digestive issues – nothing helped. I suffered most of my life.
When I got pregnant with my first child I gained an enormous amount of weight even though I had eaten as I normally had. Doctors just looked at me as if I was eating too much. After my second child was born I decided to take my health into my own hands. I learned I had a lot of food allergies (hence the sick stomach) and that my thyroid was running slow (hence the weight gain). Through education, proper diet for me and exercise I am now healthier then I have been in my whole life. My life purpose is to help others regain their health and life!

Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York, NY
At the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, New York, NY, I studied more than 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods of some of the world's top health and wellness experts. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in the body, mind, spirit connection; holistic nutrition and preventative health.
Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, American Associate from Drugless Practitioners
Certified Reiki Second Degree Practitioner, Reiki Life Academy
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
For more than 15 years, I suffered from leaky gut, anxiety and depression. After working many years in corporate public relations and marketing I started to experience several negative side effects from stress, unhealed emotions, and food and lifestyle choices. I just did not feel well and experienced daily bloating, irritability, headaches and weight gain. I was still working out daily, just did not feel myself and the scale was not moving despite my efforts. After receiving a basic food allergy test, I discovered that I had several food sensitivities. From there, I was able to eliminate triggering foods from my diet but still needed to work through the stress, anxiety and depression I was often feeling. After years of taking various anti-anxiety and depression medications and being hospitalized for treatment, I knew that I needed to find a holistic, integrative and natural route for healing.
That’s when I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York NY and began my quest to integrate body, mind and spirit for total wellness. I discovered I could heal my body and feel better via nutrition but I also needed to do emotional and spiritual cleansing and rejuvenation in order to feel my very best. One area out of balance, effects all areas as does unhealed trauma, emotional pain and situations that are unresolved from our childhoods. I now lead a holistic lifestyle and have been off medications for more than five years. I have naturally healed from leaky gut, anxiety and depression and I now offer my services and integrative approach to clients interested in doing the same.
"Michelle is so knowledgeable and eager to share her wisdom and passion with others. It is a team effort working with Michelle, as she offers gradual steps to balance body, mind and spirit. My husband is amazed at how much happier and balanced I've become in just a short time. I would recommend Michelle's services to anyone looking to improve their health and well-being!" - Maureen
"Before my cleanse, I was eating so much junk food and feeling terrible about my body. After my cleanse, I was not as hungry, more energy and clearer skin and realized I did not need the junk food. I feel so much better about my body and how I look and feel. I am most proud that I don't crave bad food anymore. Thanks to Michelle, I am able to see how food can make such a huge difference in the way I feel." - Ashlyn
"Working with Michelle has given me a lot of awareness and insights into my behaviors. She is great with offering insights, accountability and support to keep me on track and help me to reach my goals in a timely fashion." - Stephanie

There is no one size fits all diet, and our modern science of nutrition can be very confusing. However, it is true that we are what we eat, and it is true that more information is exchanged from our belly to our brain than the way around. Based on these premises, what our stomach process takes a whole new dimension and meaning, and can dictate how we feel both physically and emotionally. Also, natural has been proven to be best for prevention and for maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
My style of coaching is based on the concept of bio individuality, and my approach is holistic, meaning that I look at the whole of a person’s life to determine the areas that need improvement. The method I teach is intuitive, and leads to a healthier lifestyle that will outlast any other diet on the market. I look into every aspect of the individual, from eating habits, to emotional state, from food quality to the way they food is consumed. I expanded the concept of Food to include anything that affects the person’s 5 senses, because according to ancient knowledge and now confirmed by modern science, the true definition of “health” is to be found in a balanced combination of what we see, hear, touch, feel, and eat on a daily basis.
As a consequence of learning and adjusting little things in the kitchen and in everyday’s life, individuals learn how to manage their weight, emotions, and their personal growth. On my program in partnership with BestMe360, every session is modular, so the individual could address any specific issue each time (food quality, weight management, emotional eating, healthy cooking). A 12-step program is also available for those who want to commit to a life changing series of highly individualized sessions that will explore physical and mental strategies that trigger overall personal growth and success.
Some of the things you will experience during my program:
Born and raised in Italy, but believing or not, I've never really learned to cook until I was on my own in NYC at 23 years old. Back then, I was a skinny young man, an avid cigarette smoker, and food for me was important but I just didn’t know how to source what was right for my body and mind. Looking back, I realize that I had several challenging conditions that I was overlooking- like fatigue, lack of mental focus, bloating, bowel disturbances, constipation, skin rashes, uncontrolled irrational and emotional behavior. I've been working hard over the past 2 decades to change my lifestyle and my food intake- this has completely changed who I am and where I'm going in life, finally becoming the person that I am meant to be.
After 15 years working in an office environment, I finally took a coregeous leap and went to school for Healh & Wellness. Today I’m a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and trained in very effective natural solutions like Aromatherapy and Colorpuncture. In my practice I use the power of food and other natural solutions to help individuals trigger self-healing and self-growth at the Body-Mind-Spirit level. My mission is to positively affect as many people's lives as possible through my intuitive and holistic approach.
I have a passion for anything natural and that connects me to people. In the order, I love:
My friends and people I worked with know me as someone whose energy and enthusiasm to gather people, and whose curiosity for new adventures never runs out.
Some experiences I’ve had: I’ve lived all my life between Milan, NYC, and at some point London.
Yes, I can speak Italian, and talk to my mom daily over Facetime!
Before I left the corporate world, I’ve traveled while working in the passenger seat for 7 weeks across the USA documenting with my camera communities across each states.
I’ve been running Half Marathons since 2013, but this year I will run the NYC Marathon!
In the past, I’ve raced a few Triathlons even though swimming for me is a challenge!
I designed and produced my own wellness bags, one for hosting the tools of Colorpuncture (an amazing needleless Acupuncture with colors and lights instead), and one for carrying essential oils bottles

Strategic Intervention + Awakening Coaching = Angelic Intervention - I help you reconnect to your true source of power, and authentically express your soul as divinity in action. Most clients come to me fatigued, exhausted, out of balance, running on fumes, feeling successful on the outside, but feeling empty, unfulfilled and unhappy inside. Because they are out of alignment and balance, their dissatisfaction is seeping in and negatively affecting all areas of life – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness, as well as financial and relational wealth. Your session with me is in-depth, transformational and goes to the root cause of the presenting problem, whether it’s money, relationships, or life purpose and fulfillment, creating permanent results. It is also highly individual, programmed to your unique needs, perspective and challenges. Not a cookie cutter approach. That’s because I read your unique energetic vibration which my clients find deeply healing and transformative. Wherever you are experiencing lack – money, life satisfaction, deeply fulfilling relationships, we can work on and shift, as well as create peace of mind that lasts. Customized to your needs, the work I do offers a dynamic 4-step process to guide you back to wholeness, integrity and alignment. * Reclaim Your Mind * Restore Emotional Freedom * Release Your Unique Soul Expression * Reset Your Body’s Automatic Responses All 4 steps are happening simultaneously in each session and designed to help you gain self-mastery over your psychology, emotions and authentic soul expression. It is gentle and effective, with no downtime, because it is a co-creative partnership between you and me, designed to meet your unique needs, style and preference. We all have a unique purpose that we have forgotten. We get so caught up with life that we forget how to live, truly, deeply, lovingly, meaningfully. It is my goal and desire to facilitate that awakening… elevate awareness, self-esteem, self-respect, self-care, self-compassion… from heartbreak to heart-and-mind fully opened… awakened to our intrinsic beauty and infinite love… empowered, emboldened, engaged. And that is why I created The Open Heart Mind Coaching Solution.
Open Heart Mind Coaching is a beautiful blend of Strategic Intervention, Awakening Coaching, Accounting, and personal lessons from my own cosmic 2×4’s. Open Heart Mind Coaching is a powerful integration of the practical (money) and spiritual, left brain and right brain, masculine and feminine, and human and divine, so you feel aligned and at-one with your Self. Strategic Intervention encompass: human needs psychology, strategic therapy, social action therapy, direct and indirect negotiation, the third side, Ericksonian therapy, structural family therapy, life-cycle theory of business organization, mediation and conflict resolution techniques, neurolinguistics, organizational psychology and community organization. I take it up a notch through Awakening Coaching and connect you to your Higher Self, to your Soul, and Source.
My greatest strength and accomplishment in life was in raising my 2 daughters singlehandedly. I separated from their Dad at first sign of physical abuse towards our then 2-year old first born, immediately after the birth of our second child. Without financial support from their father, I happily worked 2 jobs to give my daughters a great life. I was an ambitious, driven and determined (still am) single mom who worked nonstop… but it took a toll on me, physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. I didn’t realize how exhausted and depleted I was. And that’s how I got into coaching. I was my first client. And its the best investment I’ve ever gifted myself. I was in a state of confusion… and pain… not physical pain… but a yearning for something more…

I have a way of rearranging people’s thoughts and beliefs through my words, safe and nonjudgmental space for people to relax, open up, and tune into their true selves, giving clients (and non clients alike) “lightbulb” moments just by being in my presence.
Having worked with business owners over the 30 years as an Accountant, I have come to know that the problem with money is never about money. People think they can be financially free by doing things a certain way, investing in stocks, real estate, retirement plans, but the truth is you can’t be financially free until you yourself are free. You may be balancing your checkbook. You still may be tracking your liabilities and your assets. You may be doing all the things that you are “supposed to be doing”. But if you are not doing it from emotional alignment, you’ll find freedom is hard to come by. I can help you in simple and practical strategies: 1. Understand your money psychology 2. Harmonize your emotion 3. Breakthrough money limiting beliefs 4. Activate the money flow 5. Design the life you love to live

My background is in dance, fitness, and health. Growing up, I was a serious dance student. I went to high school at Interlochen Arts Academy and then furthered my studies in college at Marymount Manhattan College where I received my BFA in dance. I pursued a professional career and had the opportunity to travel and perform with Catapult Entertainment, as seen on America’s Got Talent, for a year.
During my pursuit of a professional dance career I discovered my love for teaching The Bar Method, a popular type of barre fitness, and it was after my time with Catapult that I started to consider other career options. I felt burnt out with dance and knew there was something else out there for me. I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, a health coach training program, and I immediately knew that was what I wanted to do.
At IIN, I studied over 100 different dietary theories, developed a holistic approach to health and healing, learned from leading experts in the fields of wellness, spirituality, and medicine, and was given the tools to begin my coaching practice. I graduated in January 2018 and I currently coach young women in getting clear on their goals and in helping them prioritize their health and self care to defeat burnout.
I make my own Kombucha and have a love for gut health! Unique Experience: I traveled to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala on a volunteer trip with my dance company, SPDance where we taught dance and movement to young girls, victims of domestic and sexual violence.

Life is becoming more complex, and many individuals are more in tune with the connection between their well-being and their emotions, food choices, career, relationships, and life purpose. People are taking charge of their own well-being, as well as their emotional and spiritual energy by seeking support to understand how these all work together.
I use a Transformational Coaching Method which connects with a challenge or frustration you are experiencing and empowers you to shift the current paradigm to create space for what is desired. This is accomplished through a series of interactions that reframe thoughts and create meaningful actions.
In addition to coaching, the techniques I use to support your journey are the chakra system, writing or journaling, visualizations and the Akashic Records. We will work together to eliminate stuck emotions in the chakras, which are energy centers on a spiritual level that can manifest on an emotional and physical level. The chakras provide indications that makes connections between how you feel, think and respond.
If writing or journaling resonates with you, I created a process called writing (or) journaling for healing to support your transformation. Getting your thoughts out of your head and on paper is freeing and insightful as to why or how situations are difficult. Writing prompts are discussed in the session and tied to what is holding you back from moving forward and/or connecting with the deeper meaning of the situation.
Lastly, to support a spiritual, career or life purpose deeper meaning, I work in the Akashic Records. These are the records of your soul’s journey and the Akashic energy, like cellular memory, holds your thoughts and feelings. The uniqueness of your Akashic Records is the ability to tap into energy of the soul and detect blockages that could be contributing to your ability to move forward in areas such as life purpose, career, business challenges, and negative thought patterns.
My background and professional training includes Certification in Transformational Coaching Method and Life Coaching, Certified Akashic Records Consultant, Certification in Myers Briggs personality assessment (MBTI) and DISC assessment, PHD, Doctorate of Philosophy from CSU, Colorado State University, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Functional Nutrition (FNLP), various training in Transformational writing and over 15 years of experience with change management, career development and training & development in organizations.
On a personal level, I used my approach and techniques to move myself out of state of lacking life purpose, seeking passion and healing on a body, mind and soul level. There was a time when I experienced severe anxiety and panic attacks which lead to physiology ailments; this is all behind me now.
I’ve always been highly intuitive and love to write. Enjoy sharing how to set up a regular writing practice.

My approach to coaching a client is very easygoing, yet focused and intuitive; I like to keep the space and tone very light-hearted as we work together to address the root cause of any concerns and create a simple but direct plan of action. I always strive to make my clients feel safe, heard, and cared for; like they’re speaking to a true friend. I understand the value of truly listening to my clients, so I make sure to give them the necessary time and space to express themselves without fear of judgment.
As a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I have been trained to use various tools and techniques that help the client reach a greater state of balance, including the use of health history forms, charts that help map out your current level of satisfaction in varying life categories, and the use of strategic questioning to assist my clients in better understanding themselves and their lifestyle goals. In my client sessions we are able to clearly identify life goals (short term and long term), and most importantly determine practical action steps that can be taken immediately following our session. My goal is to leave my clients feeling empowered, having greater clarity about the changes they wish to make and the faith and determination to follow through.
In 2010 while going through bouts of depression, I started independently studying alternative health and spirituality, feeling that these studies would help me find a greater sense of purpose and lead me out of my depression and thankfully they did! I began learning from experts such as Dr. Mercola, Mike Adams-The Health Ranger, David “Avocado” Wolfe, Fully Raw Kristina, and spiritual teachers such as Eckhart Tolle,
Sri Ramana Maharshi, Abraham-Hicks, and texts like A Course in Miracles. I was also fortunate enough to participate in several group and individual meditation sessions through the years, leading to a deepening in my understanding of lasting, inner peace. I became more dedicated to understanding my purpose in the world and the value of being health conscious.
I am proud to say that my journey has led me to become a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and have now been a natural foods and alternative health advocate for over 7 years, familiarizing myself with healthy lifestyle choices and natural healing modalities.

My specialty is empowering people in liberating themselves from the physical, mental and emotional blocks that keep them stuck. I work with people who are overwhelmed, stressed and burnt out, to optimize their energy and access their limitless potential so they can obtain true, deep, lasting vitality.
Sessions are designed to get laser focused on the highest yielding actions you can take, so you can move forward with confidence and clarity. We’ll identify areas of priority, energy drains and stress loops, and through nutrition, mindset and holistic lifestyle teaching, set you on the path to taking back your life - and feeling great.
I’ve always had an interest in nutrition, health and well-being. I love creative problem solving and exploring the intersection of physical and emotional health, and so when I found myself with stage three adrenal fatigue, an autoimmune disease, a parasite infection and Candida overgrowth, I had stumbled into my ultimate playground. At that time a naturopath advised that I’d be on thyroid medication for the rest of my life, which I took for 8 days before deciding that it wasn’t my path. I committed to finding the root causes for my body’s dysfunction and imbalance, and to healing myself using nutrition, supplements, stress management and shifting my mindset.
That healing journey lead me through several areas of study and certification, including becoming a Metabolic Typing Practitioner, C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach and an IIN Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
Interested in a more precision-based approach to deep healing and optimization, I turned to the area of epigenetics, a cutting-edge field of human potential. Now as an Apeiron Epigenetics Coach I work with people’s genetic data, enhancing and optimizing the body to its fullest expression of potential.
I occasionally work with clients using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Tapping), principles of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), and in the realm of biohacking and enhanced performance.
I haven’t always been in the health field, and in fact my experience of adrenal fatigue that lead me in the direction of holistic health and healing came out of a high-stress career in digital marketing. I have an MFA in Design & Technology from Parsons in NYC, and I spent ten years working there for companies like MTV and Comedy Central, before burning out completely. That wake-up call shifted my career path and the whole trajectory of my personal health and well-being.
“The pain pushes until the vision pulls.” When we don’t have a clear vision, there is a dissonance in our spirit that manifests as painful situations, confusion, disappointment, stress or at best the sense of going nowhere. But when we have clarity about our purpose and our goals, they provide a guiding light to pull us forward into a blissful future.
It can be uncomfortable to define a plan; to speak our dreams into existence is an audacious act of courage. It’s not uncommon for our minds to create protective mechanisms to keep us in our comfort zone, but when those become chronic self-limiting beliefs they begin to run the show from the background, sabotaging our success. They lurk in the shadows of our psyche, silently pulling the strings of our decision-making process, encouraging us to stay safe and comfortable instead of going after what’s really important to us.
The process to defining life goals often begins with identifying those self-limiting beliefs that are keeping you from connecting with your vision. It can be challenging, but is incredibly fulfilling. These sessions are designed to support you in identifying areas of self-sabotage, giving you the freedom to create the life you truly want. We’ll get specific about what is holding you back, work through a guided process of opening up to the things you want to create in your life, and come up with specific action steps and success rituals to keep you on track. You’ll leave having a clear plan on how to take on your life goals with a sense of freedom and power.

Your body is the vehicle through which you experience the world, and when that vehicle isn’t functioning at peak levels, your enjoyment of life can be greatly diminished. Chronic symptoms can make it challenging to stay positive, feel pleasure and experience life to the fullest. I’ve been there – fatigue, chronic pain, excess weight, brain fog, poor sleep, mood swings – life can be tough to enjoy in a chronic state of dis-ease. Those symptoms are opportunities to learn about imbalances in your system, so you can improve function and ultimately your experience of your body and life.
Through our coaching sessions I will pull the puzzle pieces of your dis-ease together in order to create an individualized, strategic game plan for healing. You’ll get precise and personal tools to help you overcome the critical barriers that are in the way of you reaching your potential.
Having stumbled through the roadblocks of chronic health issues myself, I learned the principles of holistic assessment and healing required to not only fully recover, but to really thrive. Identifying the source of the problem is critical to restoring your health and sense of vitality, and can provide permanent long-term results. I can help you find a sense of power and calm in your relationship with food, your body and your health, and together we’ll create an inspiring and comprehensive vision of what’s possible along with a roadmap to get you there.
Sessions are designed to take a holistic look at your symptoms and goals and create a health blueprint that maps out your path to healing. We’ll identify immediate actions around nutrition and lifestyle that you can implement right away to begin to boost your energy and improve how you feel. If you choose to set up subsequent sessions we can dive deeper into implementing pieces of your health blueprint as you move toward your goals. All sessions may touch on nutrition, lifestyle, supplements, simple biohacks to boost your energy and sleep, and mindset tips and tricks to reduce stress. Additional clinical tests and diagnostic tools are also available to get a deeper look at the state of your health, so we can make a bigger overall impact.
Sessions Offered: 60 min - $200
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at cause you to overeat?

I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book.
What do you value most from your well-being? We’ll use these visions to bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.

I started my journey through health and wellness about 10 years ago. It started with my desire to help my children heal. They were suffering with chronic headaches, anxiety, digestive issues and it was causing problems for them academically. I turned to Google and began to research.
Initially, I was overwhelmed by the vast amount of information on healthy living and the conflicting opinions. After months of sifting through tons of information I began having some success with my own health and the health of my kids and husband. I was developing a growing passion for this new lifestyle. I wanted to know more and help others know more. This was when I decided to take the next step and began my schooling to become a certified health coach.
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods,and practical lifestyle management techniques. I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge, we will co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
I am a wife and mother of 4 amazing boys. All of whom sparked my passion for health and wellness, and continue to be my motivation today. I love cooking for and with my family and being out in the vegetable garden with them. I’ve learned that if they grow the food, and help cook the food, they are much more likely to eat the food.

My approach to overall wellness is to focus on gut health. Healing the gut, and maintaining it, is one of the most important things we can do for our health. When our gut and microbiome are not working properly we end up with a leaky gut, causing chronic inflammation. This leads to problems like brain fog, constipation, diarrhea, headaches, anxiety, depression, heart disease, forgetfulness, diabetes, dementia, and a whole host of other chronic illnesses. We will work together and create a plan that best suits your individual needs. Everybody is different, bio-individuality tell us that food and lifestyle is not "one size fits all". I will be there to educate you, support you, hold you accountable, answer questions, and guide you through this transformation.
