As a Certified Positive Psychology Coach and CHEK Institute Lifestyle Coach I am uniquely qualified to help you clarify, navigate and make progress toward your life and health goals.
I follow the 80/20 Rule...Your Well-being and success are 80% psychology and 20% mechanics. Your strategy doesn't matter without a positive and growth mindset to carry out your goals & dreams. Most people are held back by their old stories, lack of confidence, or self-compassion.
I am trained to help you identify and break those old dominant stories. By pragmatically recognizing old patterns/limiting habits, you can begin to replace them with positive and inspiring beliefs that catapult you towards success. You quickly make progress on where you want to go.
Clarity is critical for success. People who succeed consistently have created a clear plan — an action plan that leads to success. We all encounter roadblocks — learn the process to conquer these challenges and take massive action to get real results in your life, business, finances and health.
Let's create your Action Plan.
Progress delivers PUMPS OF DOPAMINE, which multiply over time into your happiness. But many have so much inertia - it's like sludge. Learn how to take progressive action. "Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone", Ralph Waldo Emerson. I can help you push to this edge. If you don’t act, your dreams can't become your reality.
More about Life and Health Coaching:
We may use the advanced CHEK Lifestyle Questionnaires to assess all aspects of your physical, mental and spiritual health. This is a uniquely integrated and holistic approach to health, fitness, and well-being. I'm trained in human behavior and how to modify it to navigate through challenges.
The human body is an integrated system of systems – what happens in the digestive system can impact the musculoskeletal system, for example. This means our choices about diet, rest, and movement can impact our health in a wide variety of ways. This is why a holistic approach to health and fitness is essential.
We harness your prior successes and positive experiences as a basis from which to broaden and build.

Foundations of Health
Follow the 80/20 Rule!
Eat 100% Real Food 80% of the time.
Fuel your body with fresh, pure, unadulterated, real food 80% of the time. Packaged goods generally have very little nutrition remaining after the manufacturing process, therefore possess little life force, literally clog your brain, and make your organs work overtime to detoxify them. Pay attention to how much protein/carbohydrates/fat your body loves, each of us is unique. Some of my favorite brain & body foods are wild salmon, kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, eggs, grass-fed beef, organic chicken..."Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug in America" - Bill Philips
Hydrate with water, the only drink your body really needs.
It is critical for cleansing your organs, brain, and cells. Drink half your body weight in ounces every day. Water is the first thing you should consume when you wake up and the last thing before you go to bed. In fact, your body is 70% water, which is about 10-11 gallons or 80-90 lbs. Water is critical for every single physiological occurrence in the body. From blinking your eye to lifting your arm, to thinking. Drinking water helps you detoxify your body, maintain a healthy body weight, digest food and absorb nutrients, have healthy, glowing skin, decrease muscle and joint inflammation, and improve circulation.
Rejuvenate & Repair with a long deep sleep.
Sleep at least 7-8 hours every night. As mammals, we are tied to the sun, so aiming for 10pm-6am is ideal. Sleep deprivation increases your cortisol, which decreases serotonin and all your growth hormones. Lack of sleep can make you gain weight. If you go to sleep at midnight, you have cheated yourself out of one-quarter of your physical repair time! (If college students sleep between 12-8am, don't worry).
Movement is critical to health & happiness.
Move your body in a big way every day. Your brain, spinal cord, organs, and muscular-skeletal systems need a minimum of 30-60 minutes of exercise every day. Don't get me wrong, although this might excite some people, the sound of running for an hour may be daunting. Find something you love to do. No need to train for a marathon but try to break a sweat. Walking is a fantastic way to pump the body! So is yoga, tennis, golf, basketball, raking leaves, jumping jacks, bodyweight workouts, spinning, biking, paddle tennis, hiking, swimming, skateboarding, ice skating...
