Why Emotional IQ Matters for True Health

As a health coach, I speak to my clients mainly about nutrition. Nutrition is my specialty and it is what I believe to be at the core of our health. However, we often move on to broader subjects and explore other aspects of good health, of which there are many.

Upcoming Class: Resolve to Evolve!

Do you want to supercharge your intentions for a healthier you in 2018? Research shows that only 8-16% of people achieve their New Year’s self-improvement resolutions, with more than 80% returning to old habits by mid-February. Because the power of our habits exceeds the strength of our resolve, only half of all intentions survive past the first month.
