MEET AMY

My name is Amy (she/her), and I'm a Monash-certified health coach specializing in the low FODMAP diet and IBS anxiety. 

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. 

HEY FRIEND!

MY SPECIALTIES

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. 

ANXIETY MANAGEMENT & COPING SKILLS TRAINING

Your brain and your gut are intricately connected. Sometimes, feeling worried about when and how your symptoms will strike may keep you from doing the things you love like trying new restaurants, hiking, or travelling the world. Sometimes, feeling sensations in your body (like gurgles or cramps in your gut) can trigger an anxiety cycle in your body without you even knowing. So we can also find ways to rewire your nervous system and brain to stand down when your body makes normal noises.

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.
