Samantha's Story

As I began a rigorous PhD program, both of my parents were diagnosed with cancer. To manage my stress levels, I sought control over food and exercise. I wanted my body to be "perfect" -- I thought that if I could achieve "perfect" health, I could unlock the secret to save my parents and protect myself from getting cancer too. Besides, that "perfect" body gave me confidence in the cutthroat environment of academia. I did find immense stress relief in training for marathons and Ironman triathlons, but I became obsessed. By trying to control every aspect of my food, exercise, and body, I severed my connection to my authentic self. I lost my intuition -- not to mention my menstrual cycle -- and it took eight years to heal from these toxic behaviors and thought patterns...

Today, I have a fully healthy, thriving female body to which I feel a deep, loving connection. I am passionate about helping other women find a similar relationship with their body, food, and exercise. Whether your problems pertain to weight loss or weight gain, motivation to exercise, or feelings of shame or loathing toward your body, you have my infinite compassion and empathy... and I can support you in making positive changes.

Personalized Coaching

Whatever your history, whatever stories you may have about food, exercise, or your body, my coaching container helps you unearth and explore the root cause of your problems and transform them to develop a healthy and loving relationship with your body.

Each 60-min coaching session focuses on a different aspect of your journey. I also assign an activity (sometimes journaling, movement, or a ritual), which you'll do as "homework" in preparation for the next session.

By working with me, you will also get lifelong access to exclusive invitations for women's workshops and retreats that I run to promote your healing journey alongside like-minded sisters.

My approach combines a variety of methodologies from Internal Family Systems, mindfulness, somatic practices, and positive psychology, as well as the most up-to-date research on nutrition and exercise performance. Most importantly, I combine research with deep compassion and personal experience to guide you on your transformational journey.
