Have you been struggling with low energy?   Are you frustrated that you can’t lose weight or keep it off despite all your dieting efforts?  You’re not alone.  I’ve been there and so have many of my clients.  I have been fascinated with health and nutrition for as long as I can remember.

weight loss with the new you resolutionSeeing my mom go on the cabbage soup diet, the banana diet, the grapefruit diet, etc. had me very aware of body image, weight loss and health and years later, I finally realized that my own unhealthy eating habits were the source of my low energy and depression. Lots of reading and using my body as a chemistry experiment along with lifestyle changes helped me to pinpoint what foods worked for me and I’ve been full of energy and at my ideal weight ever since.

My work as a research scientist provided me with the knowledge of how our bodies work at the biochemical level.  But it was my trip to Rwanda, volunteering for Gardens for Health International, a not-for-profit organization that teaches sustainable gardening practices and nutrition to people with HIV, that changed my life and convinced me that I wanted to support people to lead healthy lives through food, nutrition, and lifestyle habits.

As a health coach, I can help you alleviate your health concerns naturally, and gradually adopt healthier lifestyle habits that fit your busy life.  By working with me, you’ll understand the source of your health issues and how to reverse them. You’ll try new foods and discover delicious recipes, learn time-saving techniques so that you’re not spending hours in the kitchen, better manage stress through simple exercises and tools, and explore the sources of your unhealthy habits that sabotage your efforts.

The results will not only influence your weight and your energy levels, they’ll have a positive impact on your relationships, and give you the motivation and drive to pursue your passions.
