Her journey:

Kim struggled with her relationship to food from a very young age. She grew up in a single family home where her mother struggled with emotional eating and obesity. Kim was bullied all through elementary and middle school; subsequently developing an eating disorder from the age of 14 into her late 20's. After hiring a nutrition coach she learned how to stop using food as emotional support. Her whole life transformed simply by fixing her relationship to food. She no longer struggled with binge eating, she was able to lose weight safely, get in the best shape of her life and finally had the self confidence she needed to evaluate all of her surrounding relationships. Her coach changed her life and it is now her mission to help change others lives in the same way.

When it comes to how we help clients with their health and wellness goals, the concept of sophrosyne is always priority regardless of the goal. Through nutrition and habit based coaching, any health and wellness goal can be accomplished.

Sophrosyne is the ideal of excellence of character and soundness of mind, which when combined in one well-balanced individual leads to other qualities, such as temperance, moderation, prudence, purity, decorum and self-control.

Health is so much more than a pant size, a number on the scale, a blood pressure reading , or how fast your one mile sprint is. That's because it is all encompassing and will be different for every single person.

It’s not just about food. It’s not just about habits. It’s about how we as humans beings interact within our own minds, our relationship with self, and how we are manifesting that in our outward projections and daily actions. (Romans 12:2)

Health = Happiness
