I help people with health challenges get their lives back on track, one step at a time.

You may have landed on this page because your gut isn’t happy, you are tired all the time, or your BMI is inching up. Maybe you’ve been newly diagnosed with IBS or an autoimmune condition, with chronic pain or chronic fatigue. Perhaps your doctor has told you that you need to make changes to prevent heart disease or diabetes. But what if the outcome of landing on this page is:


  • Feeling fit, healthy, and energetic
  • Getting refreshing sleep every night
  • Being happy with how you fit in your clothes
  • Confidently making healthy, sustainable food choices
  • Having your mind as your ally cheering you on, rather than judging you
  • Have an exercise routine that energizes you and fits into your lifestyle
  • Feeling confident that you are taking good care of yourself, so that you’ll be there to take care of those you love

The opposite of ‘sick’ isn’t ‘not sick’, it’s feeling vibrantly alive!

I believe wholeheartedly that healing is possible,
because I personally have come back from the depths of injury and illness.

I know from experience what it is like to have health challenges sweep the rug out from under your feet. To lose confidence in yourself.

I never imagined that I would come out the other side feeling healthier and stronger, that I would find the answers to other health challenges that had always plagued me, and that in the process I would develop new mindfulness practices that would deepen my connection to others and the world.


 I am confident that you also can heal and grow.

Yes You Can!

Healing is possible when you are ready to take a first step and explore different possibilities in partnership with someone who has been on this journey. My approach to behavior change combines support, compassionate listening, and challenging you to take the next step forward. I see your strengths, notice your wins and help you to overcome obstacles and challenges. I believe in you, even when you don’t.



What I bring to the table:

My background is in science, education, and behavior change.

My science background allows me to help people understand the science behind their medical challenges.

My teaching and behavior modification expertise from my dog training career helps me to explain things clearly and allows me to help people with finding small, achievable first steps and the motivation to implement them.

My own experience as a patient seeing ten different doctors in a year seeking a diagnosis allows me to empathize with clients who are working their way through the medical system.

My training as a coach allows me to recognize clients’ unique strengths and capabilities and help enlist those qualities on their journey back to full health.


As your coach, I don’t need to dig into your past like a therapist. I am interested in where you are going and how you will get there.

  • What matters to you most?
  • What do you already know about what works for you?
  • What is holding you back?
  • What would be your first step?
