My Training

Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

Transformation Life Coach 

I received my professional training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s (IIN) cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program where I learned innovative and holistic coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, over 100 dietary theories including; Gluten-Free, Raw, Vegan, Macrobiotic and the list goes on. 

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition science, neuropsychology of habit change, autoimmune diseases, gut health and so much more! With IIN's support and mind-blowing curriculum, I have immersed myself into the study of integrative healing, mindfulness, preventative natural medicine, and eastern medicine so that I am able to better serve my clients, the people around me and myself on this journey of health and evolution.

I have learned through the concept of bio-Individuality that each individual is intricately unique with unique food and lifestyle needs, and because of this there is no one size fits all diet or one size fits all pill.

Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I support clients to make food and lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. I teach my clients how to develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for them, improving their energy, balance health, and happiness so that you can fully thrive create the life you dream of.

One of the most important things I learned through IIN about health and creating a balanced life is that our health is determined by how all the elements of our lives interact with one another; career, relationships, spirituality, exercise, etc. IIN calls these areas of our life Primary Food, whereas our diet is Secondary food. This means that the people we surround ourselves with, the relationships we have, our careers, and spirituality and how we nourish our soul and our mind has an enormous impact on our health.

As an IIN graduate I have been equipped with the knowledge necessary to guide you to make healthy lifestyle changes, from developing an exercise routine, or a meditation routine to relieve stress, to nourish your relationships, to learn to manage your finances and find work-life balance doing work you love and to create balance in every aspect of your life.

IIN gave me the opportunity to heal myself and to turn my passion for natural healing and holistic health and wellness into a fulfilling profession that will allow me to help others.

Transformation Life Coaching

From the Transformation Academy I acquired general knowledge in neuroscience and neuropsychology as well as core life coaching tools essential for helping people create lasting changes with goal-setting exercises, action planning, and accountability tips to empower people to follow through and achieve their goals so they can unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose.

I have developed strong communication skills, including powerful listening skills and vital questioning skills that will allow me to help clients develop a better understanding of themselves so they can take directed action.

Using the science of psychology and human development I help clients create strategies that are actionable and sustainable long term.

By helping clients develop a growth mindset, release limiting beliefs and use proven techniques such as Neuro Linguistic Programming to shift habits by creating new neural pathways and improving neural plasticity so you can create a radical transformation and shift in your life.
