After moving to Los Angeles, I found myself caught up in the daily grind. I had lost sight of my passions, and was left feeling unfulfilled, and overweight. It was time for a change! I balanced my work and personal life, rekindled my love for home cooking, and began practicing yoga and hiking. I lost 25 pounds and became excited, energetic and curious. What change had I made that left me feeling this good? How could I help others feel this sense of empowerment? That is what lead me to study holistic health coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
As Seen In:
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. I had the privilege of studying under experts such as:
- Walter Willett, MD: Chair of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health
Chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard’s School of Public Health as well as the author of Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating.
- Andrew Weil, MD: Director of Integrative Medicine, University of Arizona
A best-selling author whose books include: Spontaneous Healing and Eight Weeks to Optimal Health. Dr. Weil is a Harvard Medical School graduate and world-renowned expert on medicinal herbs, mind-body interactions and healing systems. He also started the Integrative Medicine program at the University of Arizona.
- Deepak Chopra: World leader in the field of mind-body medicine
A holistic healer and author of more than 50 books translated into over 35 languages. Deepak is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and one of Time Magazine’s “Top 100 heroes and icons of the century” and “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.”
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
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 cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health. I am so excited to join with you on your journey to wellness!
