“I really appreciate all the work we have done and how much of my life I feel like you have given back to me with our sessions. I am truly a happier person having worked with you. I see the world in a different way and am able to appreciate myself a lot more.”*

“Before I started working with Laura, I didn’t realize how much I use food as an emotional reaction to situations. Specifically, if I’m too overwhelmed I don’t eat. I also had an all or nothing mindset but realized it doesn’t have to be that way. After going through the program with Laura, I am feeling better and less hopeless and made a big life transition that was much smoother than it would have been had I done it on my own. It was really helpful to have someone on my team who is neutral, kind, non-judgmental and looks out for my best interest while being removed from the direct situation.”*

“I sought Laura out as I had been yo-yo’ing in my weight for the last several years and felt that thinking about food was leading to too many mental gymnastics. Laura helped me unpack what was contributing to my “I must eat pizza now!” craving, which was where I tended to fall down. By realizing that I needed to balance my work stress in ways other than comfort food and allowing myself to slow down enough to take care of my needs in more fulfilling, lasting ways, I was able to make changes. This wasn’t as easy as it sounds!

There was a lot of sadness that came up and an inner oppositional teenager who wanted to break a rule the minute I made it!  Laura has the wisdom and presence to be able to sit with these emotions in a way that is beyond her years. I think it takes a certain vulnerability to be able to sit with someone in their negative emotions like that. I felt comfortable sharing these intimate details with Laura because of who she is as a person. I really liked the email summaries she would send after the session and the items to reflect on/exercises. Laura was also able to be flexible to understand my desire to skew towards Ayurvedic (yogic medicine) principles to be in line with my spirituality. Through this foundational work and by tuning into my spiritual practices I have found a sustainable way to enjoy food rather than feel controlled by it.

I’m grateful for Laura and recommend her highly!“*

“I just recently completed my work with Laura and had a very pleasant experience.  I found Laura to be a great support. She met me right where I was at in the moment. She shared a lot of great information about food and helpful resources. More importantly, though, Laura led me on a journey of self-exploration especially around emotional eating. I appreciated knowing that Laura really understood my struggle because she  has been there herself. This was invaluable. Laura is a great Health Coach and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.”*

“When I first met Laura I had discovered I had a number of food sensitivities (Corn, yeast, gluten, dairy, sugar, sulfites).  I felt incredibly overwhelmed about how to prepare meals and feel healthy while not feeling deprived. Laura recommended a number of great “treats” including an amazing “chocolate milkshake” that has become a staple in my life. Prior to working with her I felt like my diet was extremely rigid and I felt very deprived, but now I feel (and look) great and am able to stay away from the things that make me sick while still enjoying food and life.

Most people I worked with in the past for any dietary coaching were a nightmare. I found myself constantly hungry, tracking every spec of food, and feeling guilty when I couldn’t maintain these incredibly regimented diets.

Laura really wants to help people live the best life possible and be gentler on themselves. We ended up working a lot on stress management and integrating a lot of practices for fun and relaxation. I really recommend Laura as a kind, approachable, knowledgeable partner in the quest to a happy, healthy, (delicious), and fun life!”*
