Mind, Body, Nutrition Health Coaching

My non-diet nutrition and whole health approach focuses on teaching you “gentle nutrition” —no perfection necessary. Every dimension of your health affects your eating habits, so we get to the root of your challenges — by exploring your “deep health”: your physical, mental, emotional, relational, environmental, and existential health — not just giving you what you want, but what you need to make your self-care sustainable.

Coaching Philosophy

Diet culture focuses on your physical appearance, duping you into believing that your health is just a number on the scale. This is a distorted and simplistic idea of your health ignoring its complexities. An evolved definition of health honors body diversity and acknowledges that your body will change as you move through the stages of life.

Deep health coaching ditches the diet culture BS and considers the multi-dimensional thriving of you as a whole person in the context of your real and complex life. We collaborate to build a structured plan where you practice small health habits, weekly — allowing your body to be where its healthiest. The deep health approach transforms not just your relationship with food and your body, but your whole wellbeing.

How can I help you?

Most of my clients come to me feeling frustrated and stuck with one or more of the following health concerns:

  • Chronic and yo-yo dieting and cycling through the latest and greatest eating plans
  • Nutritional confusion, frustration
  • Body image challenges
  • Weight dissatisfaction
  • Overeating
  • Binge eating
  • Stress and emotional eating
  • Health conditions (i.e. high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, heart disease)
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive issues
  • Lack of time for self-care (i.e. food, exercise, sleep, stress management)

INTUITIVE EATING

This self-care eating framework honors both your mental and physical health to support a healthy relationship with food and your body.

BODY IMAGE

Having a challenging relationship to your body often affects your eating behaviors. Body dissatisfaction is driven by our culture’s false definition of health as “thinness.” When we separate your self-worth from your body size or shape, you can live life now, not if/when…

EATING PSYCHOLOGY

Good nutrition is more than “what” you eat; how and why you eat matters too — which is influenced by all aspects of your life.

BEHAVIOR CHANGE PSYCHOLOGY

You have a desired nutrition or wellness goal. But you can’t reach it or sustain it. Outcomes are what you want, but they can’t tell you what to DO. Behaviors — the skills, practices, and actions – are HOW you’ll get there.

DEEP HEALTH

Are you truly transforming your health – or just focusing on one aspect? Your physical health (nutrition, movement, health markers, sleep) are important yet it makes up only 1/6th of what determines your Deep Health: Physical, Emotional, Mental, Existential, Relational, and Environmental.

Deep Health: Each area of your health is deeply entwined and influences your eating and self-care behaviors.

Example: You work long hours at a stressful job.

You sit at a desk all day (environmental) which causes back pain (physical). You come home anxious (emotional) and answer emails all night, which distracts you from time with your partner and kids (relational). And your family is your top priority (existential). Then you sleep poorly, wake up exhausted, cancel your workout, and reach for sugar and/or a coffee-only breakfast (all physical). You’re super hard on yourself because you’re not at your “ideal weight”- which is a myth by the way (mental). Is there a way out?

Yes. The challenges are connected… but so are the solutions.

The good news is that improving one dimension can also improve the others.

That’s why health-conscious people like you need coaching that’s individualized, thoughtful, and sustainable (not another quick-fix food plan).     Tanya
