No treatment plan for mental wellbeing is complete if it doesn’t harness the power of nutrition, exercise, and sleep. What we eat, our physical activity levels, and our sleep habits have tremendous effects on us – a fact that’s amplified for the brains and bodies of people with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
I am happy to coach clients on any of the lifestyle areas listed below and have a particular passion and interest in the ways lifestyle can support our mental wellbeing. After all, our physical and mental wellbeing are inextricably linked.
With over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field and personal experience as well, I have seen the positive impact diet, movement, and sleep can have on a person experiencing mental distress. If you're ready to explore making some changes, then I would love to support you!
Unhealthy lifestyle habits in the areas listed below account for over 70% of our chronic illnesses. You have the power of choice, but change isn't easy and that is why I want to work with you for the next 3-6 months on making shifts to improve your wellbeing.

Sustainable Change Process
First, we gather all the pieces of your life story together: past health history, major life events, and the experiences and traits that make you, you. In a sense, we are gathering all the tools you will need for the journey ahead.
Next, I really get to know you by asking questions meant to invoke exploration. I guide you through the process of designing your future health vision by first digging deeper into your purpose, meaning, and values.
The ground is fertile for change and you're ready for action. You take the first steps towards your meaningful future health goals. This part is hard work, but I am with you every step of the way.
Goals shift. Life happens. We respond by being flexible and adaptable. Every change process involves the unknown and during this step in the coaching process, we revisit, recalibrate, and refine goals and approaches based on observations and needs.

When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce.
