Like a lot of new Mom’s, I often felt overwhelmed and depleted as I navigated the challenges of sleep deprivation and breastfeeding, while also striving to balance self-care / me time, quality time with my partner and the round-the-clock care of our new baby girl.

Approximately 1 in 7 women suffer from PPD but a lot of the factors that contribute to it are within our control with the right support. As your coach, I will partner with you as you navigate the transformative life transition of becoming a mother.

Wherever you may fall on the spectrum, together we will increase your awareness of triggers and identify and experiment with various strategies so that you can thrive.
“You are what you eat” – whether we like it or not, there is a lot of truth to this statement. Food is a source of pleasure and comfort, something we enjoy socially, but its main function is to provide fuel for our bodies so we can do the things we need and love to do in life with energy, strength, and vitality. If you’re struggling to find a diet that aligns with your unique needs and lifestyle or want support with more consistently eating the foods your body needs to thrive, I will be your accountability partner as we discover the most sustainable diet for you.
It’s a term that’s a bit cliché but is nonetheless vitally important for overall health. In American culture, many would agree that there’s an imbalance largely in the direction of work life.

coach, I will ask you open-ended questions and offer reflections to support you in seeing more clearly what adjustments can be made to create that unique work-life balance that works for you and your family and allows you to flourish.
