FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where do we begin?
Prior to our first session, I have you keep a food log with details of your digestion, day to day schedule, and more. This is our launch pad to look at where you’re CURRENTLY at - to steadily get you to where you want to be. I don’t believe in quick and drastic changes. Our work should add to the quality of your life and health - not make it more difficult.
Together we create a plan based on your goals. I provide an individualized approach to help empower you to move from point A to point B in a way that is NOT stress-filled. I help you build habits that you have been longing to have but have felt stuck trying to reach on your own.
What’s a session with you like?
We meet over Zoom bi-weekly and communicate daily via Voxer (the free app I use exclusively for private clients). We cover your food log (which is different from traditional food), areas of focus from the previous week, and how they were implemented in the current week. We do a lot of dissecting MINDSET around food. We will also focus on your specific healing protocol for metabolism, hormone health, detoxification, lowering the stress response, calming the nervous system, and gut health. We finish with an area/s of focus for the next week that can be easily assimilated into your daily routine.
How will I know if I’m making progress?
Your body will tell you! Progress to me is any shift towards less stressing about food, being perfect, and less shaming for what we could view as a mistake.
Progress also looks like less digestion, skin, and bloating issues.
Progress is also sleeping more restoratively, having more energy during the day, and having regular bowel movements.
All my clients see and feel shifts shortly after we begin working together.
What’s your approach?
I use a root cause approach. Together we bridge the gap between hormone balancing and the nervous system. This is often the piece that so many women are missing. I also believe in a a zoom-out approach. Instead of looking at one particular habit and trying to “fix” it, we look at all areas of your life and how they could be impacting your health. Instead of covering up symptoms with a fast "solution", I look at the root causes of your symptoms and create habits that lead to a total lifestyle shift. Through analyzing your current state of health and needs, I’ll help you reach your goals that will feel good & doable.
How soon can I start to see/feel a change?
The work we do together often involves healing years of metabolic and hormone dysfunction. Change takes time! The symptoms you are currently experiencing could be a result of years of stress on your body from numerous things.
Taking the guesswork out of the gut, hormonal issues, and digestive issues is huge for my clients. Often a huge contributor to these ailments was the stress of figuring out where to start, confusion on why this is happening, and integrating a realistic healing plan into their life. That’s where I come in. I help create an action plan to target your health issues based on your current lifestyle.
Most clients start to feel more energized and improve skin, digestion, and difficult periods within a month.

How will I know if this right for me?
If you're here, you're probably ready to level up and heal! If you are self led, ready to go all in with your health, and know that change is uncomfortable but NECESSARY for healing - then you're in the right place!
Fears like “what if nothing changes” or “what if this doesn’t work” will need to be met if you want to step up with your heath. All my past clients acknowledged these fears with me - and we moved through them together. Investing in yourself on a different level than you have before creates a shift for change. That fear can either keep you stuck where you're currently at, or you can harness it to move you closer to feeling good and living a healthier life.
