& I aim to challenge

With the health industry currently saturating the market with “quick fix” and “cookie cutter” approaches, I aim to take a whole human approach to health. With over 9 years of studying neuroscience, I work with clients to improve their connection between the brain and body, so they can heal their metabolism, rewire their mindset and move pain free.

I’m a neuroscience health coach for women seeking a different approach to health and healing, so you can learn how to live a life designed with listening and attuning to your body's unique needs.

I take a trauma-informed approach to helping women like you do this through the lens of neuroscience (a fancy term for learning all about your brain and how it functions for you).

Does it ever feel like your habits, behaviors, and your body are working              you?

If you’re someone who has become accustomed to living in survival mode, anything other than tension, stress, discomfort, anxiety, or pain can feel really scary, or even inaccessible.

I know how frustrating that can be, especially when you deeply crave a life not limited by these symptoms.

And, if you’ve spent several months or years on your healing journey, it can be especially frustrating feeling like there’s something wrong, or that you “should” be further along by now.

BUT EVERYONE'S VERSION OF HEALTH & HEALING WILL LOOK &      DIFFERENT.

Every experience you've had in your body, every symptom or self soothing behavior, will always be justified through the lens of neuroscience.

gentle reminders...

Every experience you've had in your body, every symptom or self soothing behavior, will always be justified through the lens of neuroscience.

You are not broken or defective—it's because you're human, and your body is incredibly intelligent and designed to protect you.

Unlike what we’ve been told to believe from societal norms, friends and family, diet culture, and maybe even other professionals, you are the one and only expert in your body.

What do I mean? Well, you have learned to survive in your body since you took your first breath. You hold the most intimate and precious knowledge of yourself there is to know.

In that time, there is an immense amount of information you have learned about your brain and body—it just hasn't been held with enough space to be validated.

This is what my services, programs, and approach to coaching are here to do: hold space for your experience and trust you as the expert, with myself serving as your space-holder and support system to guide you in tapping into that expertise.

my  philosophy

my  philosophy

let's start from the top, and take a look at the brain. 

Through collaborative relationships with my students, I develop programs that create subtle lifestyle shifts and interrupt seemingly never-ending searches for new solutions.

Brain based coaching is as much about movement, mobilizing joints, recovery (e.g. stress and sleep) as it is about our emotional relationships to our bodies, including potential barriers to self-acceptance.

Neuroscience will always leave room for the “out of box”, quirky, “I’m not sure if this makes sense”, rare, or “it can’t be just me?” experiences.

There’s only one perfect way to heal

Your symptoms are all in your head

Healing = suffering, restriction, & perfection

You have to eat less and do more

Everyone else has this whole healing & healthy living thing figured out

You cannot become an expert in your own body

… I’m here to reassure you that it doesn’t have to be this way.

like...

As your coach, I’m not here to force you to make your body a home, if it’s not a place you feel safe to be.

I’m here to meet you where you’re at, in the reality that your body may not feel like a home, but with the hope that it someday may.

I am not here to convince you to connect to your body, if increasing your body awareness is layered with pain and past trauma.

Instead, I’m here to hold space for your grief and pain, and provide you options for how to process it.

I’m not here to give you more rules to follow, because that leaves no room for options, flexibility, and grace.

Instead, I’m here to bring you years of data and research in neuroscience, and give you the room to explore your own decisions.

I'm not here to rush your healing.

I’m here to honor and validate your pace, so you can move forward, but never alone, until you’re ready.

If we choose to work together, here’s my promise to 

you...

Most of all, I’m not here to fix you.

I’m here to help you heal and return to your intuition, so feelings of shame and judgment can dissolve.

I am here to show you that your body can be a place of safe exhales, a place where you deserve to return home to, and where trust can exist as the foundation to this relationship.

Would you like to learn how I can support you in healing your brain & your body?

Are you ready to learn how neuroscience can help you heal from the inside out?

If so, I’d be honored to walk through this journey with you.

on to bluer waters

Home's truly where the heart is. 

I’ve recently relocated back home to Honolulu, Hawaii after residing in California for the past 17 years so my lovable and energetic 9 year old Labrador, Nala could retire by the ocean with sand between her toes. 

And if you ask her, moving to Hawaii with the beach as the backyard has been, the best decision ever.
