Work with Me
Wellness is a journey.
It’s about more than simply what you eat or the size and shape of your body. It is about your whole self and a balanced life.
It’s about eating real food & feeding your body the nutrients it needs.
It’s about feeling good when you move. Sleeping well. Having energy. Lowering stress. Having meaningful relationships. Finding joy in life. Being your best self.
It’s about making simple and sustainable changes that you can stick to and that actually fit in your life.
No diets. Wellness isn’t about restricting yourself or counting calories. Food is fuel for the body. Eat to get your body working at its best. Take in whole foods and real foods that give your body and mind all the nutrients and minerals it needs and wants.
And, yes! It is about indulging sometimes too. Enjoy a glass of wine or a night out. Linger around the table enjoying a good meal with friends & family. Have fun. Laugh.
Wellness includes all of these things.

Coaching is free from judgement. It is a partnership. We will work together to reach your goals.
Life is busy and hectic, so let’s find what works best for you. I offer multiple options for coaching, depending on how much (or little) support you want.
Email me with a little about yourself (name, age, stage of pregnancy) and your goals for wellness/what you’re hoping to achieve. Then we can set up a complimentary 30 minute consultation where we can chat and get to know each other and decide what program is best for you before we begin this wellness journey together.

Want to learn with your friends or fellow mamas?
Sometimes it is more fun to work on wellness with your friends. They provide support and encouragement and hold you accountable as well. Small group sessions are a great way to work on your wellness goals. It’s ok if you are all at different stages of your pregnancy journey.
Want to learn with your husband or partner?
Pregnancy is a great time for mom and dad to begin a wellness journey together.
Couples sessions are available and a great way to get started on your goals before your little one arrives.
Looking for a speaker at your event?
Large and small group workshops are available
Not sure where to begin? Let’s do it together. We’ll go through what you have and decide together where you may be able to swap in better choices, or just help you be more aware of what you take in everyday. We’ll come up with a list of some great things to stock up with so you can stay on track.
Grocery Store Trip
It can be overwhelming to know what are the best things to buy at the shop. There are so many choices, nutrition labels are confusing, and ingredient lists are tough to read….. Let’s navigate the aisles and labels together
Have a favorite recipe that you love but might not be the healthiest? You don’t have to forget about it! It could be your occasional splurge OR we could revamp it together to make it healthier so you can enjoy it more often.
Eating well is easier when you are prepared for it. Planning ahead helps you be ready for snack and meal times & helps you make healthier choices when hunger kicks in. It also saves you time through the week. Planning may seem daunting but doesn’t need to be complicated. Let’s go through the steps for planning out your week and shopping list so you can get started.
