I trained at the One of Many Women (2018), Institute for the Psychology of Eating (2017) and Health Coach Institute (formerly Holistic MBA) (2015), and Institute for Integrative Nutrition (2014).
I am also a proud holder of a Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) certificate, which I was awarded after learning NLP from its co-creators Richard Bandler, John LaValle and Kathleen La Valle.
I have an extensive knowledge of holistic nutrition, and proven coaching tools and techniques resulting in lasting transformation in my clients
One of many™ is an organization committed to the growth and evolution of all women. Their mission is to unleash the bold, grassroots leadership of 1 million women internationally. In my training as One Of Many women’s coach I use tools and techniques geared specifically at professional women looking to become pillars of their community.
For example, I teach the difference between disempowering archetypes and Women Power types that support women as they become happier and more fruitful in their life.
At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
The Transformational Coaching Method I learned at the Health Coach Institute combines concepts and methodologies from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), cutting edge psychology, shadow work, family systems work, neuroscience, and spirituality.
I received my certification as an Eating Psychology Coach in the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology. I learned protocols that enable me to work with weight issues, body image challenges, overeating, binge eating, and a variety of nutrition related health concerns such as poor digestion, fatigue, mood, immunity, and others. My work combines Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind-Body Nutrition, including results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind-body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.
What is Dynamic Eating Psychology?
Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It’s a positive, empowering and transformational approach designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, the focus of eating psychology was limited to people with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. It recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationships, family, work, sexuality and our search for meaning and fulfillment.
What is Mind-Body Nutrition?
Mind-Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that explores the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Created by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it focuses on the fact that what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind-Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning leading to practical strategies for the most common eating challenges and health issues of our times.
