Struggling to Find Balance?

I help people who are frustrated with dieting change their relationship with food in order to lose weight once and for all. I teach my clients how to rediscover the joy of eating through guided nutrition coaching, mindful eating exercises, personalized meal planning, and weekly support. My goal is for you to develop long-term, sustainable lifestyle habits, no deprivation required.

What people are saying:


“Best thing,  I don’t feel like depriving myself,  having to eat in a way that I can only do for a limited period of time, or having to count calories, nutrients. Frankly, I feel my focus shifted to eating more: e.g., what healthy fats or proteins I can add to meals to make sure that I don’t have to feel hungry.”
