Empowerment Coach and Registered Dietitian
Welcome to Harmonia Healing and Wellness! I'm so glad you stopped by!
My passion is helping clients become their most authentic selves. I believe that we live in an abundant universe and that we are ALL capable of amazing things. However, we are often limited by our inner critic or the labels society places on us. I want to help you identify the roles you're playing that are keeping you stuck, so you can live your best life!
I have dreamed of a career in healthcare for as long as I can remember, and was drawn to the field of nutrition while I was in college. Growing up in the south, I saw firsthand the role that diet plays on our health. I was frustrated with our medical system that shoved more medicine at my family members to manage their diabetes and heart disease, while they just kept getting sicker. I knew that there had to be a better way. My early research taught me that if you used food as medicine, you could reverse these diseases and could feel better along the way. I was so excited and had to share what I was learning! I started my path as a registered dietitian, because I wanted to help clients improve health, heal their bodies and heal their relationships with food.
I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology. Later I switched allegiances to earn my Master's degree in Public Health Nutrition from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I've been a practicing registered dietitian for over seventeen years now.
What these seventeen years have really taught me is that diets don't work. Hating your body doesn't work. Shame doesn't work. Trusting your body, learning to listen to hunger cues and rejecting the diet culture do work. So often, we know what to do, but we have mental blocks keeping us stuck. I became an empowerment coach to help my clients get themselves "unstuck". Once you learn to identify your barriers to success, we can create a plan to help you reach your highest potential.
