Special Mother’s Day Sessions!

“No daughter and mother ever live apart, no matter the distance between them.” – Christie Watson This Mother’s Day, celebrate your relationship by diving deep into your hearts together. The mother-daughter bond is extremely unique and full of rich opportunities. We can learn so much from each other if we only take the time to

Free Nutrition Class!

A lot of people ask me how I became a coach. I got a lot of informal training by living (thanks Challenges and Obstacles! *eyes rolling*), but I got my certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). I could say a lot about IIN, list out all of their amazing teachers, blah blah blah,

Design Your Life

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow

Happy 6 Month Anniversary SE Asia!!

Exactly 6 months ago I hopped on a plane to Bali with no return ticket to the US (much to the airline’s chagrin…that’s another story). I remember, like yesterday, the feeling of dread and fear in the pit of my stomach before I left–or, rather, leapt. It’s a feeling I’ve had before and continue to

Malaysia: Beyond Words

“When for the first time something starts happening which is beyond words, life has happened to you, life has knocked at your door. And when the ultimate knocks at your door, you are simply gone beyond words – you become dumb, you cannot say; not even a single word is formed inside. And whatsoever you

Thinking of the beach? Forget bikini bootcamps and “cleansing” till the cows come home, these last-minute efforts and attempts to feel good about your body are usually counterproductive and unsustainable.

21 Days to The Juiciest Relationship You’ve Ever Had

I’m so excited to announce I will be launching a complimentary 21-Day Courting Myself Challenge with my dear friend and fellow coach/goddess, Kara Brackney!! I got so much out of doing my own 21-Day Challenge and continue to everyday. It’s too good to keep to myself…So here we go!!!…

The Best (and Longest) Date I’ve Ever Had…that Hasn’t Ended

I am so sick of hearing about self love and self care and it not making a damn difference. Most of us “know” that these are keys to health, happiness, abundance, etc., yet some of the most abusive relationships are with ourselves. One day something finally snapped for me in Bali and I’d had enough.

Letting Go for the New Year

We make all of these declarations and resolutions about what will be new this New Year, yet we rarely make room for it. What is there to let go of, to grieve, to say goodbye to, before allowing space for what’s next? Otherwise, resolutions are bound to fail… 

How Cookies & Sugary Cereal Helped Me Quit Nighttime Binges

I’ve been putting off publishing this post for months, waiting for the perfect moment once I have it all figured out and can wrap my story up with a nice little bow and call it complete. I’m realizing that will never happen. Last month’s solution may not work today…which brings me to a confession… 

NYC, it’s not you, it’s me…

Yes, I’m moving out of the city at the end of the year. I’m excited, nervous, and open to endless possibilities. I’ll be continuing my coaching practice virtually and will be adding to my knowledge base as I immerse myself in cultures with age-old wisdom in holistic wellness. And I’ll blog as I go, so feel

Why Wellness?

I didn’t always eat this way. As someone who saw sugary flakes as the perfect balanced breakfast (and occasionally an easy dinner), you could say I wasn’t always one to pay much attention to the quality of my food. The impetus to change my habits wasn’t out of wanting to lose weight (I’ve been blessed

Cold & Flu: 10 Easy & Effective Home Remedies

  This winter has been particularly cold and rough. As people around me were dropping like flies with cold and flu, I self righteously kept reassuring myself that I had nothing to worry about. I never get sick anymore! Until I woke up one morning with that feeling…sore throat, achy ears, stiffness all over. Uh
