Hello, I'm Heather.
I’m a California Girl in a love/hate relationship with the health-conscious culture around me. I love the great weather and active lifestyle.
I love that healthy food options are almost everywhere.
I hate the near-constant judgments about “good” and “bad” foods.
I HATE THAT I’VE SPENT TOO MANY YEARS
COMPARING MY BODY TO AN UNREALISTIC IDEAL.
Maybe I can’t blame that all on California…
I’m now a recovering perfectionist.
Thank goodness, because I wasn’t very good at it. But come to find out, I wasn’t alone.
Every day I work with clients who feel ashamed of their bodies. Who blame themselves for being unable to stick to a diet, to just buckle down and “be good.” They feel like failures and sometimes want to give up. It’s heart-breaking.
When I started training and coaching people almost 20 years ago, I noticed that even though I had all the right certifications, people still struggled to lose weight and keep it off. We’d have a great session, they knew just what to do and were all gung ho to do it. Then the next time we talked, life happened. Their plan didn’t.
So how does all of this affect you?
When I sit down with my clients they share with me what they really want for their health and their body. And you know what? When we dig deep most often it’s not about weight loss.
That’s just a side effect. They struggle with perfectionism, enjoying life and feeling good in their bodies. They know what to do and are frustrated at the cycle of self-sabotage. I’m committed to using my 20 years of experience so that when you make a plan, your plan works. Because I love an active, healthy lifestyle and really enjoy eating food, I’m committed to make sure you have the lifestyle that you really want to live.
Some people are skeptical: “You mean I don’t need to worry about diet and exercise?”
I’m not saying food and exercise are unimportant. The problem is the approach. I love to see my clients get back to really enjoying life – what they eat and how they feel – and let go of the restrictive patterns that have held them captive for so long.
Whether you want to feel good in your clothes again, be confident in your intimate relationship or just be free of the constant thought-loop about food and your body, I want that for you, too!
My purpose is to help you have that freedom.
I look forward to getting to know you better. I would be honored to support you.
