I see you. I’ve been there. You’re successful, positive, fun on the outside but on the inside it’s not so much fun.
You’re constantly beating yourself up for your food choices. You criticize your body. The mirror is not your friend. The scale causes fear and dread at the possibility of weight gain.
You feel like if only you did more – ate better and worked out harder then you’d finally relax around food and be happy in your body.
The reality is you are doing enough.
The cycle of restricting, depriving, and punishing just doesn’t work. There is another way – a sustainable, healthy way of relating to food and your body.
This is where I come in because with support and the right tools, you do have the power to transform your relationship with food and body. The choice is yours. And isn’t it about time?
As your health coach, I act as a guide and supportive mentor to empower you in your relationship with food and body and in taking responsibility for your health and wellness.
How I Work
My process is an integration of different fields based on my own experience and training using mindfulness, positive psychology, eating psychology, mind-body nutrition, and holistic/integrative nutrition. This puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to your relationship with food and your body.
Mindfulness will slow you down, so you can get present and listen to your body
Positive psychology will help you foster a more positive mindset and empower you to take action to make positive changes in your life
Eating psychology discovers and addresses the root of your eating and body challenges with compassion, seeing them as an opportunity for personal transformation
Mind-body nutrition explores not just what you eat but how you eat and how you live
Integrative nutrition considers everything in your life that nourishes you on and off the plate
My approach is positive, empowering, compassionate, fun, individualized, and down to earth.
Together we will focus on what works for you and your individual body in all areas of your life because you know it’s not just about food.
You will make feasible lifestyle changes without restricting, depriving, or an all or nothing attitude.
You will feel empowered around food, in your body, and in your life.

“Working with Emily has helped me develop a new and profound appreciation for my body and health. She has guided me, with genuine encouragement and without judgment, to see that mind and spirit so clearly affect how we see and treat our bodies. She helped me develop a sense of self-compassion. I’m not as hard on myself as I was before; I now treat myself as I would treat a good friend – with patience, compassion, and a healthy sense of humor. I appreciate Emily’s openness, sincerity, and compassion as well as the type of accountability she held me to. Emily is not only a coach, but she is a partner. We worked together to define realistic and sustainable goals that were specific to me and my lifestyle.” – M. M.
