WHOLE LIFE NOURISHMENT FOR CHANGEMAKERS

Welcome to the

WHOLE LIFE

NOURISHMENT

FOR CHANGEMAKERS!

This program is for YOU, the changemaker, the progressive leader, the one who needs to optimize your health and well-being so that you can show up as an agent of positive transformation for our world!

Be the amazing changemaker you were called to be without the burnout and fatigue, especially in these challenging times!

We need to practice radical self-care NOW more than ever.


Next group starts

Mid-November 2020!


This four-month online coaching program is specifically designed for changemakers to support you in optimizing your health and well-being—mind, body and spirit!

I know these are EXTREMELY challenging times and I know you are all feeling overwhelmed most days with burnout looming . . . but here’s the deal, even in the midst of such chaos, you can take small steps on a daily basis to better support your health and well-being so that you can show up for your mission, yourself, your team, your relationships, and our planet.

So how do you make this happen? By doing it together, with support, guidance, and accountability. It’s time to prioritize your health and well-being, knowing that you can’t give from an empty cup.


The WHOLE LIFE NOURISHMENT program will address your health and well-being from the following angles:

* Establish more clarity and confidence around your FOOD/NUTRITION choices and routines so that you can feel more energized, balanced, and nourished all day long and continue to support your immune system.

* Practice effective strategies to support better quality SLEEP/REST because sleep is essential to having vital health, more energy, less cravings, and more resilience in handling the big changes you are facing.

* Create the healthy SCHEDULE/HABITS/ROUTINES that allow you to move through your day with greater ease, energy, and focus. These times have highlighted the importance of routines more than ever!

* Prioritize more daily MOVEMENT into your routine so that you can be more present in your body, relieve stress, support immune health, and feel stronger.

* Cultivate ways to have moments of meaningful CONNECTION TO SELF in the form of self-care practices, self-love mindset, expressions of creativity, and opportunities for pleasure and joy, even in the midst of the unknown.

* Focus on your MINDSET and create more mindfulness practices and cultivate rest. This is key to being present each day, even when there is a lack of clarity in the larger world. This time in our history is asking us to slow down while also continuing to be focused and effective in our work, our relationships, and our communities.

* Continue to build meaningful CONNECTION TO OTHERS (your community, family, personal and professional relationships, social justice movements, our planet) from a place of authenticity, giving from the overflow, and healthy boundaries. This group is also an opportunity to make meaningful connections with people who get what you’re going through.

* Continue to develop and nurture your sense of PURPOSE/MISSION because I know you came into this world at this time to make the largest positive impact! If the last few months have taught us anything, it’s that we need to be healthy and strong to really show up for ourselves, our students, and our community. Let’s do this together!


Over the course of four months, you’ll receive:

  • Small-group coaching calls twice a month (Sundays 3:00-4:30 pm PT) (total of 8 90-minute calls) via Zoom to build community, support, accountability, and clear guidance to meet your health and wellness goals. We do better when we’re connected together and can support each other! Groups will be limited to 8-10 people so we can create meaningful connections and community.
  • Specific coaching and support on my signature WHOLE LIFE NOURISHMENT program where we’ll focus on all areas of your life–nutrition, sleep, movement, connection, etc.–to holistically support your wellness. Let’s do this in manageable, achievable, small steps!
  • Private Facebook group page to easily stay in contact with each other in between calls to ask questions, receive ongoing support, share wins, and stay connected.
  • Accountability partners to help you stay on track with peers who can celebrate your wins and understand your challenges.
  • The convenience of an online group so that you can be in the safety of your home but we can be connected from anywhere in the country!

I am committed to making this group program affordable and accessible. For that reason, I am offering a sliding scale of three investment points depending on your current financial situation:

For FOUR months of Whole Life Nourishment support, your sliding scale options are $750, $900 or $1050

Payment plans available upon request. Venmo, PayPal, or a personalized invoice are also options–just contact me!


If you want to learn how to optimize your health and well-being so that you can continue to be an energized, healthy changemaker even in the midst of so much change, aggravation and uncertainty then . . .

Or if you still have questions, let’s set up a 15-Minute Clarity Call phone conversation to see if this program is the right fit for you!

I am an agent of positive change: So excited to share a new direction for my practice!

I am an agent of positive change: So excited to share a new direction for my practice!

I am committed to empowering progressive leaders in actively achieving health, well being, and balance so that they can lead others in making positive changes.


My vision includes:

1. Working with progressive leaders one-on-one on their health goals.

2. Starting small online groups at a price point that the average employee in a progressive company or organization can invest in to invest in their health.

3. Workshops and seminars in organizations and companies on wellness and health and self-care.

4. Continuing with a lot of great free content available to a wide audience.


I am so fired up about this! It feels so good to finally be sharing this with you all!

So if you or someone you know is a progressive leader in a company, non-profit, educational setting, think tank, start-up, or any other progressive organization and would be open to either having a quick phone conversation with me or answering a few questions via an anonymous questionnaire, please let me know. Or if you know about cool organizations—local, national or international—that are doing amazing things and you want me to know about them, please share! You don’t need to know anyone there—with the help of my awesome intern, I’m amassing a database of organizations and causes.

I feel so passionate about this new direction with my practice. Thank you for any of your support!

Causes I feel committed to include but are not limited to (and in no particular order):

  • Environmental (water, land, climate change, conservation, animals)
  • Women’s Rights (including reproductive rights, domestic violence, intersectional feminism)
  • Racial and Social Justice
  • LGBTQ+ rights and representation
  • Food (organic farming, food justice, food safety)

  • Civil Liberties
  • Veterans/PTSD
  • Housing and homelessness

  • Inmate and ex-inmate support services

A little back story . . .

It’s the two year anniversary of the Woman’s March on Washington. For those of you who don’t know, I went to Washington, D.C. in January 2017 to show up for what I stand for, to make my body seen and my voice heard. I showed up because I have the privilege to be able to do so—a flexible work schedule, no kids or ailing parents to care for, and the financial ability, although not easy, to do so. I had to go.

The morning after the election I woke up with such heavy grief, and the depression stayed with me for days. I am not one prone to depression so this inability to work, to get dressed, to shower, to eat, to move was new to me. I functioned but it was like moving through a molasses of grief, bewilderment and fear.

And I could see it in my clients as well. In the weeks leading up to the election, the amount of stress-eating, over-drinking, and fear was often spoken about by my clients. I was trying to support them, helping them focus on self-care in the midst of it all, but I understood their challenges.

A few days after the election, I started to pull myself out and being the person that I am—full of fire, determination, and optimism—I started to take positive action.

I started small, creating a free online self-care Facebook group called “Self-Care is a Radical Act of Love” and instead of accepting payment, I asked participants, if they could afford it, to donate to their favorite charity. Part of my mission with the group was “we need to take care of ourselves so that we are able to take care of others and be positive agents of change.” I knew if I was struggling, others would be too and might benefit from the support.

(By the way, I’ve reopened the group so that it is live and going again! It’s free and you can join HERE!)

Right now I’m going to pause and answer the question that might be in some of your minds . . . Why am I talking about politics on my health coaching business website?

The truth for me is that this election and the shifts that have occurred the past two years go way beyond politics. This is not about red/blue or which side of the aisle one supports. This is about important values that I hold dear and that I am willing to stand up FOR. The election of 2017 made one thing very clear to me. I am an agent of positive change.

Now what was I going to do about it?

So flash forward to the present, January 2019. This is what I’m excited to share with you and where I need your help . . . See above!!!
