Working Together

These are some situations that can drastically improve when working with a Nutrition Coach. Can you relate to any of these?

  • Weakened health across the family
  • Weight and body image discomfort
  • Lack of energy
  • Excessive stress
  • Blood sugar and glucose intolerance
  • Impaired ability to move flexibly
  • Metabolic imbalance
  • Disempowerment and depression
  • Poor digestion
  • Autoimmune disorders

If any of these symptoms apply to you or those you love, I can help. When you make the decision to improve your sense of well-being and call me, I will listen deeply and then give you a description of what it might be like for you when we work together.

Better Health with Joy is a completely holistic 3-month or 6-month program.

During that time, I become your ally, health mentor and spiritual energizer.

We begin with a complimentary assessment of your present health history. (You’ll find that right from this beginning step you’ll start to feel better, because you are being heard and understood at a level that is extremely rare in today’s healthcare system).

Next we develop a step-by-step approach that is customized to your age, health, life situation, family, environment, work life and spiritual needs. You will have easy start-up recipes and activities.

We will always avoid the “diet mentality” and focus instead on your overall well-being.

Rather than a big list of foods to cut out, you’ll have a long list of foods to add, including foods you love.

You’ll learn why cravings are not a problem but rather a key to understanding what your body needs and when to give in to them.

Together we address other essential forms of nourishment like play, touch, romance, intimacy, love, achievement, success, art, music, self-expression, leadership, excitement, adventure and spirituality.

As a minister and holistic psychotherapist, I enjoy helping you develop an optimal balance of these other nourishing essentials too. Because the extent to which you are able to incorporate them now determines how enjoyable and worthwhile your life will feel in the future.

Once our initial discovery process and plan have been completed, we continue to meet twice a month in person or by phone to check in, exchange new information and accurately monitor your progress.

At the end of the initial 3- or 6-month Program, we will assess the kinds of changes you have noticed and decide what your next steps might be. These could include continuing on in 3-month segments, or pay-as-you-go phone consultations, or participating in group events.

Please check my “About Joy” page, because when you are seeking a critical kind of coaching like this, you need to know as much as possible about the professional you’re considering working with —what kind of training and levels of experience they have, what they believe about the intersection of mind, body and spirit, how they approach their own life and health, why they are providing this new type of service and the kind of commitment they will make to you and your well-being.
