Hi I'm Tanya, Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach.

Far too many of us are at war with food and our bodies and struggle to create a self-care routine that’s sustainable.

As a Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, I partner with you to enhance your well-being through self-directed lasting changes, aligned with your values. I believe in your ability to change, honoring the fact that you are an expert on your own life while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.

How It Started

For over 20 years, I’ve studied and worked in wellness – as a former massage therapist, fitness professional, and nutrition therapy practitioner.

Frustrated with the frustration of clients who “did all the right things” (or tried to!) but still weren’t feeling good about their eating, bodies, and self-worth, I looked for another way.

After nutrition school, I obsessed over food and my body — only eating foods that one considers “healthy.” There’s a term for this called “orthorexia.” While not an official eating disorder, I learned that it was disordered eating. Food was about nutrients, not nourishment. I spent an incredible amount of energy focusing on eating and exercising “perfectly.” I was supposed to set a good example, right?

How It Changed

But after years of practicing as an “eat this, not that” nutrition professional, I felt out of integrity with the “do no harm” oath to support clients with their health and well-being. It broke my heart to see how many tears were shed over body dissatisfaction. It bummed me out when clients felt like they had to hide from me in the grocery store or at restaurants – stressed and feeling guilty about “bad” food in their shopping cart or an “indulgent” meal on their plate.

Thankfully, through further study in Eating Psychology, Intuitive Eating, The Body Positive, Behavior Change Psychology and as a Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, I discovered a weight-neutral approach to nutrition and wellbeing that considers you as a whole person to shift not only your relationship to food and your body but to enhance your whole health.

You will learn the power of letting go of diet culture’s perfectionist approach to eating — dieting, deprivation, calorie counting, restrictive meal plans, and more and more punishing exercise, and its false portrayal of wellness as one “ideal” body size or number on the scale.

You can become a relaxed, aware, and pleasurable eater and ditch feeling like your body is a never-ending “problem” that needs “controlling” (sigh). You will practice self-care that aligns with your personal values, identity, and goals. I invite you to explore whole health coaching without the diet culture BS. Let’s get you started!
