Why have you made health and wellness your life’s work?

While pursuing advanced studies at a performing arts conservatory in my then lifelong dream of becoming a classically-trained dancer, I had turned to food for comfort and relief from the stress I felt due to the demands placed on me to always look my physical best.  The resulting weight gain became a turning point of how I would later handle all areas of my life.

Because I didn’t want to EVER have to go through with what I experienced during that “low” period, I turned for help to get back control of my life, which led me to living a healthier lifestyle.

Now I have devoted my life to share my method.

What is a Health + Lifestyle Coach?

A Health + Lifestyle Coach is a guide and mentor for habit change, one who empowers you to transform all areas of your life in a way that is sustainable, natural and fun—someone who inspires you to change the way you live day by day to be more aligned with who you want to be.

How are you different from other wellness coaches?

My approach is a holistic approach towards wellness. This means that I explore the many ways that you can improve your quality of life and find lasting health and happiness.

I’ve spent 25+ years studying and putting into practical use both Eastern and Western philosophies of healing with whole foods, and living a contemporary healthy lifestyle.  I have invested more—time, money, and energy—than most would be willing to earn multiple certifications, and in my own personal growth work with high-level personal coaches.

Who are your clients, exactly?

My clients are big-hearted, serious, busy professionals, wellness entrepreneurs, empaths, performing artists—those on a conscious path, whose business is to show up looking and feeling great.

They want the freedom to focus on flourishing in their business, achieve the big goals they have set for themselves while making a huge impact on the world around them.  And, they want the mental clarity and spiritual deepening to maintain that deep connection with the earth, which is a huge inspiration in the work they do.

What kinds of personalities do you work with best?

In general, I work best with people who are motivated and self-directed. They are creative and artistic. They need the support to create a tailored self-care master plan to achieve more in less time.

I work great with self-starters who need to feel great with consistent energy levels.  It’s very important to have a supportive environment that feeds your personal energy levels, rather than saps them dry—not just within your physical environment, but your social environment as well.  I work best with high achievers who know how to take charge of their time and make the most of everything. They know where to reach out for support in their lives and understand that the more support they get, the more energy is created to lift them up to flourish.

What type of people will NOT benefit from your programs?

My programs are not for people who think that healing comes from outside of themselves.

I choose to work with those who are willing to invest in themselves, prioritize their healing and see plant-based nutrition as medicine that is intrinsically connected to their daily state of mind.

My coaching is not for everyone.  It will cost you more than money.  It will require your commitment to make the necessary changes, your courage, and your absolute willingness to create a life that can sustain the changes designed for you.  You understand that healing takes time and involves other levels such as emotional, mental, physical and spiritual.

My coaching method is based on action. Of course, it is important to explore why we do the things we do, but the transformation comes when we take action.

So if you’re looking for grounded support and accountability that will help you receive, give, and enjoy more value in your life, then I’m your girl.

What is Health + Lifestyle Coaching?

Health + Lifestyle coaching is designed to help you achieve personal, professional, and wellness aspirations with support and guidance.  My approach provides the right SYSTEM, the right SUPPORT, and the right ACCOUNTABILITY to help you transform your health and your life—for good.

Who benefits from this work?

It is the perfect solution for you if what you’ve been doing is no longer working, and you’re looking for something greater to get where you want to go.

I have a few coaching programs that you can choose from, based on how quickly you want to see results, how much time you want to spend working with me one-on-one, or based on your budget.

Pantry Makeover
for a Healthier Lifestyle

I will meet with you at your home virtually for what I call a “Pantry Makeover” to evaluate your current food choices, brands, cooking and storage methods; and assess your general self-care and home cleaning products to get you back to a healthier place.


Re-Set Cleanse

A pathway to release toxins and excess bloat from your tissues, re-set your digestive system and renew your baseline of wellbeing.  You will learn how food affects the way you feel, how to attune to your body’s unique needs to activate your natural healing potential.

OMG to Om… Breakthrough Program

Whether you seek help in personal, professional, and wellness aspirations, my approach is a whole-person, client-centered method.  Your coaching experience is designed to help you achieve your goals with unwavering support and guidance.

Okay, I know which program I want. How do we get started?

Great! You just took the first step towards reaching your goals. If this feels like the right time to focus on YOU and your needs, then go for it!

Here’s what happens next.

Coaching begins with an OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session.

What happens in the OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session?

In this 45-minute phone session, I’ll walk you through a proven process to:

  • Uncover what’s been stopping you, slowing you down or keeping you from tapping into your Higher Self
  • Discover which lifestyle habits and beliefs are preventing you from feeling connected…and what to do about it
  • Discover new insights about yourself to be better able to help you feel really good about living in complete integrity with who you want to be

During this conversation we’ll see if we’re a good fit and, if we move forward, I’ll determine which program I offer is best for you to achieve your goals in 90 days or less.  This OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session is a $97 investment, which can be applied to your program of choice within three months from the date of your OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session.

How do I book an OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session with you?

STEP 1   Please read this page in its entirety.

STEP 2   Book and pay for your 45-minute phone session hereOnce you complete your payment, you will have immediate access to an Intake Form.

STEP 3   Complete your Intake Form up to 3 business days prior to our scheduled time so that I am fully prepared to make the most out of our session (and to avoid cancelling your appointment).

Where are you located?

Because I work by phone and the internet, my programs are offered virtually, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, and are streamlined, simple, and effective, with many options to ensure that you get the best possible results.

How do I pay for your programs?

You can pay via PayPal.

I’m not sure if I’m ready to get started. How can I sample your work to see if it’s the right path for me?

You can apply for a 45-minute OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session with me.

You may also subscribe to my newsletter where I share videos, tips, thoughts and insights that keep you inspired to push for your dreams and keep your self-care rituals at the top of your ‘Want to Do’ list.

I have a family and a busy life. How much time will this program require? I want to get the most out of it, but don’t have much time to spare.

If you can spend at least one hour of time per week towards this, you will make improvements.  Sure, you won’t achieve results as quickly as if you jumped wholeheartedly in, but you have to start somewhere.

It takes many steps to reach your goals and you have to start with one step.  I know I’d rather fail miserably at something I tried rather than never having given myself the chance to succeed.

Ok, I’m ready, but I still want to ask a couple more questions before I get started. Can I call you?

Glad to hear that you are making yourself a priority!  Yes if you have a few questions, apply for your OMG to Om… Breakthrough Session with me.

…Helen has taught me a great deal about creatively sticking to the tasks-at-hand and achieving what I want, no matter how long the effort takes.  She has been positive and encouraging.  The tools she has shared with me and the moral support have been very important.  I feel physically better than I have in a very long time and I am once again participating in activities with enthusiasm and enjoyment.
