I wear many hats, but they are all necessary pieces that fit together in one nice puzzle. I am a Certified Health Counselor, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Yoga Instructor, Executive Functioning Coach, and Corporate Wellness Specialist.
After moving from New York to Boulder (previously I had mainly focused on nutrition and fitness), CO in 2013, I began to meld my passions for physical and mental wellness developing expertise in the significant and well-documented connections between the brain and the microbiome (a.k.a. the gut). I then journeyed down the path of how mental illness often coincides with a deficit in executive functioning. I began helping people by combining a wellness approach with teaching skills to build better executive functions and habits.
My passion is to help you live your healthiest and most harmonious life, but in a way that's realistic and practical for you as a unique individual on this planet. My philosophy is all about "balance," never a diet since a diet is not sustainable for life, aka Kill The Diet.
Balance is what leads to harmony, and ultimately to happiness…and isn’t happiness what we’re all seeking? Balance does not mean deprivation and guilt, because you can still indulge if you learn how to avoid over-indulgence. This applies to many things in life beyond food. It is also applicable to daily habits, both good and bad.
