As a Certified Holistic Health Counselor I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. In addition to my concern with the quantitative issues (what you are putting in your body), we will also focus on the qualitative issues that most other health professionals overlook. By taking a holistic approach to health care, I will focus on the entire picture: what are the habits that have created problems for you in the past, how we can work together to change these habits in the future, and what your goals are for your health and lifestyle. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you towards discovering which approach works best for you. I believe everything is interconnected, body, mind, spirit and beyond--the only way to make healthy growth happen, is by delving in to the whole of you.
How am I different from a dietician, nutritionist,
or medical doctor?
Most approaches to nutrition are only focused on the quantitative issues such as calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. I don’t just want to know what you ate for breakfast, though that's important. I want to know how you felt before, during, and after breakfast, and what caused you to make the decisions you made about how to take care of yourself. I care about what is going on with you personally, as the unique, one-of-a-kind individual you are. Sometimes having someone there as another motivating force, your teacher, your resource, your friend, and your support, is the key.
