I support and coach people into the discovery and maintenance of their unique well-being. I would love to work with you. Perhaps you already know emotions, stress, anxiety, physical health/well-being & eating are undeniably, inextricably linked. They trigger each other, provoking a cycle of unhealthy choices and behaviors, a cycle that can be really hard to break and one which kills motivation. Together, you and I will discover and change the why, when, what, how of your current relationship with food, consciousness & your body. We'll work together discovering how you, your body respond to food, life, work, stress and people/relationships. We'll develop realistic, livable solutions for creating your permanent life-style change.
I lived with food addiction and body image issues from age eight through my late twenties, topping off at 190 lbs on my 5'5" frame. This work has never been about a "diet." I don't even use the word. If you connect the dots between emotions, food and body image then let's work together to find your permanent solution to these painful, challenging issues. YES! YOU CAN!

Laura showed me how my relationships, job, and emotions were making me turn to food which led to my gaining weight and feeling unhealthy in every way. I didn't know I was doing that. She showed me my habits which I didn't see for myself and taught me real ways to change them. Now I've been feeling much more clear about what and who I want in my life. I am energetic and look forward to my day instead of waking up tired and not caring. I always thought it was about finding the right diet and losing weight but now I know it isn't.
I am so grateful Laura is on this journey with me. I have lived with food/body related issues most of my life and felt hopeless so many times. A friend recommended Laura to me and I am so grateful! I have never felt so well in my entire life! I needed to find someone who could understand and give me practical ways to tackle and solve this issue permanently, not just tell me "how to eat." These issues go so much deeper. Laura works with all the components: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. She holds me accountable, is a cheerleader and always has encouraging, kind, sensitive words to keep me on track.
Thank you so much, Laura!
Laura is an exceptional coach! We neutralized my accent, the main thing that has always bothered me and made me hesitate to speak in front of native English speakers. Now I'm confident when my job requires me to speak with clients or in front of meetings or groups. She catches old, bad habits and gives practical solutions for correcting them. I recommend Laura for non-native speakers who need to use English in their professions or just for the pleasure of feeling confident to speak well.
I love my sessions with Laura. She really hears the details in my accent and vocabulary errors, coaches me with warmth and humor. She is never judgmental and this has been a problem for me with other ESL teachers. She makes me want to improve, makes it easier to advance and fun again!
English is not my first language and my profession requires me to speak publicly. I always felt terribly anxious and shy about my accent and fearful of not saying what I meant to say, choosing my words correctly. Laura's coaching built my skills and confidence so strong that I now enjoy speaking publicly, something I never imagined I'd feel. Her warmth and sense of humor make it all so natural, like being coached by a friend. HIRE HER WITHOUT HESITATION!
My experience with Laura was awesome! She helps bring out the best of you. She has the kind of disposition that makes you relax and enables you to receive instruction and then be able to perform. I experienced all this in our first session.
Laura helped me draft my speech and provided wonderful feedback to make my speech more lively, natural and fluid. With Laura's coaching, I gained the confidence I needed to do a great job, deliver my message and enjoy speaking in front of a group - something I've never enjoyed, only felt anxious and fearful in the past. Thanks, Laura!
