A Little Bit More About Me
I passionately believe that in order to get and stay well, you first must love and accept your body just as she is. Only once you treat yourself with the compassion often reserved for your loved ones will true healing take place. From that place of loving kindness I have developed scientifically sound nutrition and lifestyle programs that will help you feel vibrant, energetic, youthful, healthy, and blissed out in no time!
I have struggled with binge-eating, purging, anxiety, depression, and overall ill-health and weight gain in the past (you can read all about it right here!). Through years of dietary and lifestyle experimentation I have finally discovered simple and effective techniques that will help you lose the bloat, fatigue, inflammation and self-sabotage that is keeping you puffy and sick. With my guidance you too can wake up every day energized and excited to see what new adventures are coming your way!
