"I cannot tell you how blessed I feel that you are here!"

Are you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you may even be ready to your life changing journey?

My whole life I've struggled (like so many) with mental health issues. Diagnosed for the first time when I was 10 with things ranging from: depression, to anxiety, and OCD, to an eating disorder where I saw food and weight as the enemy. Life was a constant “pitty party” planned and put on by myself. Going through many hard times left me feeling sick and alone not knowing where to turn.

At 20 I married my husband, a marine, and we have two beautiful girls. They are the reason why I said enough was enough. I was going to figure this out for ALL of us. I wanted to teach my girls they can learn to love themselves no matter where they are in their journeys. So, I set out to learning all I could about everything from nutrition, to self love, to stress management, and so on to find a way to truly get hold of my “mountains”. Although I will never be “done”, I am finding new ways everyday to overcome the things that used to defeat me daily. 

In the end, I learned to fall in love with taking care of myself and showing others that they too can do it. All we need is help from those who have been there before. I’m not here to tell you what to do or how to do it. I am here to be a support system full of useful information and support so YOU can be the hero in your story. So you can learn what works for your life and make it happen! 

I would feel so blessed to be with you on your journey and am here for any help I can offer. Because no matter where you are and no matter how many “wrong turns” you have may have taken, you are worth it and can take control of YOUR life. I am now seeing that we were not put here to live sick and unhappy, we are meant to THRIVE and love life. I am now a fitness instructor and love it, finally! (That took work, ya'll, ha.). Trust me, that one is still a shock to me, considering I almost failed P.E. in school. twice! 

I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge, we will co-create completely personalized action plans based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
