Food and eating are complicated, to put it mildly. Maybe that's why you're here, hoping for more understanding so you can make the choices you want to make. It seems simple in theory, but in reality, change is hard. I've learned a lot about why this is true.
I think we all know that what we eat affects our health: how we feel and how our body runs. But there's usually also (a lot of?) confusion in the details. Then when we layer on all the other reasons we eat what we eat: the cost, the convenience, the taste - it can quickly get overwhelming and frustrating to try to feel any semblance of control or clarity.
What I can help you do is gently untangle all those strands, then rebuild a way to eat that leaves you feeling better, without being in a battle against yourself or the realities of your schedule.
SINGLE SESSION ~ $95/HOUR
Let's have a conversation about you, either in person or on the phone. Maybe you need some clarity about health and nutrition; or maybe you do great for a while, until you turn into a self-sabotaging zombie; or maybe you stand in the produce section at a complete loss for how to make any of that into actual meals? It's okay, you're okay. This is not what we do well in our culture. We'll figure it out and come up with a plan.
FOOD 101 ~ $950/12 HOURS
Like an owners manual for the human body, this program covers food, movement, and stress-management ~ all in the context of your unique, busy, perfect, messy life. For an hour, every two weeks, spread out over six months, you'll steadily and mindfully improve your health by taking small, doable steps, one by one by one. With curiosity and acceptance, never judgement.
Do I hear a "heck, yea!" Or a "maybe I dunno"? Either way click here to connect with me.
And if it helps, here are some questions I've heard along the way.
SOUNDS GREAT, BUT I JUST CAN’T AFFORD THIS RIGHT NOW.
I've been in the medical system enough to know that not taking care of your health gets expensive in a hurry. Missing work, prescriptions, co-pays, procedures, deductibles. I really do believe that getting and staying healthy is the cheapest investment you can make.
IS THIS A DIET?
It’s the opposite, actually. Diets are designed to succeed short term, and then fail. Then you blame yourself, not the diet, and go back and spend more to try again. Instead, I teach you, at your pace, about making shifts that feel doable and invite in health naturally over time. That's the way change becomes permanent.
FOR THE 101 PROGRAM: WHY EVERY OTHER WEEK, AND WHY SIX MONTHS?
If I gave you the whole course at once, it would be too much to take in. Two weeks go quickly, giving you a chance to practice stuff before we meet again. Each time, you’ll leave with a new action list, and we’ll build on that as we go.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I LOSE WEIGHT, AND HOW MUCH WILL I LOSE?
Weight loss happens as a result of taking care of yourself. How much and how fast is not the main focus, and there's no way to predict that part. There are many, many ways to measure health, and weight loss will happen as it happens.
WHAT’S A SESSION WITH YOU LIKE?
One on one support is powerful. I think we’re all hungry for that in our busy lives. I have two main goals: to introduce you to food, nutrition and lifestyle habits that optimize your health, and to support you around your specific triggers and blocks, to untangle the causes, and create the freedom to move past them.
