Welcome! I’m Laura, NBC-HWC Board Certified Health Coach and ADAPT Certified Functional Health, Wellness and Life Coach (A-CFHC).
I help individuals like you break free from the habits of overindulging in fast-fix dopamine hits from food, alcohol and social media—or habits of the mind, like procrastination and confusion.
I empower you to match your lifestyle choices to the vision you most desire for your future, and to achieve the goals you’ve set to get you there.
When your daily actions align with your values and desires, magic happens. You create a life you feel both at peace with and energized by.
Do any of these statements sound familiar?
“I spend more time online and on social media than I would like. When I read about or watch videos of people doing remarkable things, or when I learn about something of interest to me, I feel as if I’ve accomplished something, even though I have not actually taken any action.
“I find myself in front of the refrigerator with an overwhelming urge to snack, even when I’m not hungry. Losing weight seems like an impossible dream.”
“Any time something stressful or exciting happens, I celebrate or soothe with alcohol. When I’m bored or lonely I drink a little at home while watching tv, for entertainment. It has become a habit I know longer want but cannot seem to stop.”
“I have several large projects that have been on my to-do list for years but I don’t even know where to begin to get these things done. Sometimes I think I’m just lazy.”
We never fall into these behavior traps intentionally. They often happen without us noticing, a little bit at a time, until a habit forms and becomes entrenched. I’ve experienced these same unintentional behaviors at some point in my life as well. If you’d like to learn more, see About Me.
I am here to help you…
“I don’t know how” is an excuse used by our lower brain to keep us from expending energy. You will only “know how” as you move forward.
That couple of seconds between your urge and the action taken is gold. That is when you get to decide your future. Do you give in to the urge and stay the same or are you ready to make real changes?
What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘Fit’? I believe we are fit when our body and mind are optimized to create the life we want.
I’m so happy you are here, looking for information to take charge of your health and improve your overall wellness!
