My name is Amy (she/her), and I'm a Monash-certified health coach specializing in IBS and the low FODMAP diet.
As a card-carrying member of the IBS community, I'm passionate about helping my clients find the tools they need to make their bodies feel like home.
In my practice, I believe each person is unique and special in their body, their experience, and their needs. So I design custom programs to help each of my clients reach their individual health goals.
As your coach, I promise to meet you exactly where you are and to be your partner in crime, your personal cheerleader, and your accountability partner as you strive to build healthy and effective habits.
LOW FODMAP DIET
I know first hand the low FODMAP diet can feel overwhelming when you're just getting started. But it doesn't need to feel scary! I'll teach you how to complete each phase of the low FODMAP program in a way that makes sense for you at home, at work, and on the road. I can also customize your elimination phase, so you only remove what's needed to balance your symptoms.
GENERAL IBS SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT
There are a few things we need in our daily lives to feel human. Having regular and pain-free bowel movements is one of them! Together we'll look at what it feels like to be in your body right now, and determine if there are tools and strategies outside of the low FODMAP program that might also help your body run smoothly.
While running 10 miles a day and living on lettuce might work for some people, what's healthy for others may not be healthy for you! Together we'll deepen your relationship with your body so you can discover what feels good and what doesn't. Then we'll focus on adding more of what feels right for you and let everything else naturally fall away.
HEALTHY HABIT BUILDING
Our brains have a lot on their plate, so it makes sense that they automate as many tasks as possible to keep us safe and functioning. This automation forms our daily habits. Together, you and I will discover which new habits will help you reach your goals. Then I'll help you rewire your habits so you don't need to remember to do the things that keep you feeling great.
ANXIETY MANAGEMENT & EFFECTIVE COPING SKILLS
While I don't believe that IBS is all in your head, finding strategies to calm big emotions and upgrade your coping skills can have a positive impact on your life. Whether you're trying to curb food cravings, manage your daily symptoms, or lose weight, finding ways to reduce day-to-day stress and anxiety can help kick your goals into high gear.
