Health & Wellness Coach

We go through life wishing, hoping, waiting impatiently to become an adult. Each milestone birthday is celebrated with extra enthusiasm until we finally hit the age we’ve been longing for. It’s not long before we realize, “Adulting is hard!” The struggles get us down; adulthood is not as glamorous as it once looked. Thoughts haunt us - “why can’t I do that,” “must be nice,” “I could never live that life.” You get the idea.

I have been there. I have experienced a number of curveballs that life had to offer, from a rare illness to experiencing the sudden death of a loved one to raising my first child. That, coupled with my experience in the mental health field, led me to my current pursuit as a health and wellness coach. I am here to focus in on your health, healthy habits, and mindset. Keep reading to find out a little bit more!

Health must be worked on from the inside out. When we feel our best in our bodies, we suddenly feel like we can conquer the world! Let’s work together to create healthy lifestyle habits. Emphasis on lifestyle because, as you all may have experienced, quick fixes don’t work! Along with behavior changes, we want to build a resilient mindset. Creating new habits is challenging and motivation can wash off in the shower. When we work on our mindset, though, we work towards creating consistency, and thus, new ways of being. I’m here to guide, coach, empower, and hold you accountable. You can regain the confidence in yourself through improving your health in order to have the courage to take on life’s obstacles.

My daughter reminded me of the power of being intentional with your words, choices, and mindset. Ms. Sassy pants refuses to say good morning, rather just smiles at us, but will repeat happy day to us. Then we say, “it’s going to be a..” and she says “happy day.”That interaction reminds me that happiness is a choice, it’s not given to us. We choose what kind of day we want to have and when we take a moment to intentionally choose happiness, it allows us to be better manage the stress and struggles that the day may bring. What does happiness even really mean, though? That’s a big question we can talk about when we meet, but one part of happiness I want to work with you on is how you view your interactions with others. Calling all parents, employers, employees, spouses, partners, so on and so forth, let’s work on your mindset about how you interact with those around you! I can go on and on about why this is important, but I will leave it with, those interactions impact your happiness.
