I'll show you how to create a nourishing lifestyle-inside and out. You'll learn about what you're putting in your body, and that the thoughts you have every day lead to your results. You'll gain tools to work on new thoughts to get new results- ones that you actually want.
You'll learn to really feel and experience your emotions. I show you that processing emotions, rather than avoiding them, is the key to releasing patterns of insecurity, anxiety, confusion, powerlessness, fear, and overwhelm. Feeling your feelings is much less scary than stuffing them down or buffering with food or other distractions that numb, rather than serve. And it's the key to moving forward.
Find balance with food, body image, health habits, self-worth and movement for life- and see how much more time, energy and clear thoughts come your way.
Well, I’ve been in your shoes- I know the desire, confusion and frustration of diet culture and emotional eating. It was my story for years. I went from the girl who could eat anything to the girl who overanalyzed everything I did in the name of health- and judged myself every step of the way. I've seen the scale fluctuate close to 30 pounds because of my food rules and inner mean girl mentality. But it’s not my story anymore.
Back then, I felt silent and alone in my struggle- from the outside, you couldn't see my pain. And I don't want you to have to navigate this alone. I am grateful for the time, health, and emotional freedom I have now, and I want to share those priceless gifts with you!
I’ve also helped thousands of people find food freedom over the years as a nurse educator and healthy lifestyle coach. Experiencing my own suffering and bearing witness to the suffering of others ignited a spark in me to help as many people as possible create their definition of sustainable health.
Stick around, and I'll show you how!
Are you sick of starting and stopping diets?

Ready to never diet again?
Join the club.
Food is medicine.
Movement is medicine.
Mindset is medicine.
Are you ready to let go of this food drama and diets for good?
A healthy lifestyle means eating your favorite foods when you want to, being kind to yourself, and moving your body daily. I'll show you how to find your version of a healthy lifestyle for a life you love.
I believe that fresh is best, convenience and flexibility are key, and food is a source of fuel and joy– not a stress reliever, emotional soother, or a distraction from boredom. Sure, you'll eat that way from time to time, but you'll learn to take your power back and redefine what you make your actions mean. AND you sure can have fun eating- no guilt here!
Eating doesn’t just happen. There’s always a decision, even if you can’t see it right now. By learning how habits form in the brain, you’ll figure out why you say yes, even when it's not what you need.
You can’t do this work in a vacuum or wait for the elusive stress-free time with no events, vacations, or deadlines. Lasting habit change requires practicing these skills in real life- so you can sustain them in real life.

"Laura is extremely knowledgeable in many areas. Her natural talent to communicate with people helps them be the best version of themselves. Although her site states she focuses on food, nutrition, and people’s relationships with these things, which she is extremely talented at Laura has much more to offer. I have worked with many people in the past and Laura has been the first one to help me make this much change in my life! She's a business mentor and consultant, a communication specialist, and is helping me to be a better person overall. She's helped me face some very traumatic parts of my past, along with many other obstacles that have held me back, allowing me to finally become the person I have always wanted to be! Laura continues to believe in me and see my successes, even when I initially can’t. She patiently provides me the guidance to continue making progress and finding new beliefs in a solid but compassionate, nonjudgmental, supportive way. I don’t think there is anyone who wouldn't benefit from working with her!"
"I began working with Laura after frustration with a health condition inspired me to make lifestyle changes around food, exercise, and mindset. I was looking for the answer to my problem and became overwhelmed by all the information out there. I struggled with taking action and accountability. From the first coaching session, I was comfortable telling Laura about my struggles and fears. She listened and reassured me that I could find freedom and live a happy and healthy life based off of my choices. Then she showed me the way. I found so much power within me from working with her. I learned how to create goals I could reach and each success led me to take the next step. Today, I am healthy and happy. There are a lot of paths to healthy living, but I know my success and excitement for the future would not have happened without working with Laura!"
"Laura has been an incredible source of compassion and guidance. I started working with her during a difficult time- I was feeling overcome with guilt around my choices and how they were effecting my health. I felt an instant connection with Laura. She created a safe and caring environment so I felt at ease honestly sharing personal details of my life. Laura was empathetic and offered practical support on how to address different health situations step-by-step. She provided many tools that I continue to use each and every day. Laura taught me the path to healing myself by facing my fears and being intentional with my choices."
"Choices can be frustrating and confusing- and now I know they can also be rewarding. Laura taught me how to choose differently. To become aware of my thoughts, how to choose them intentionally, and learn how my thoughts create my feelings. I used to feel so powerless- now I understand myself and my actions so much better. I am grateful I chose to invest in myself by working with Laura. It has changed every aspect of my life for the better. I figured out practical, daily self-love, even when the opposite used to come more naturally. I know the power of my yes and no and I finally choose what I want for my life rather than staying in fear of change."
"Coaching with Laura was like finally taking a complete exhale. I was so wound up- scared and confused about my chronic health conditions and how to make lifestyle changes, as well as anxious about an upcoming surgery. Now I tell everyone about how beneficial our sessions were. Laura helped me see what was possible. From there, I settled in and learned how to believe in myself. I made changes that are doable to this day without feeling deprived. Are there days I don't want to follow through? Sure, but with the skills Laura taught me, I know how to work through discomfort and move forward in support of my goals. Discovering my strong why is a huge motivator. Laura changed my life by helping me create a lifestyle I enjoy. I feel great."
"In the past year, my body has changed so much-both in form and function- thanks to this life-changing, life-extending med for cystic fibrosis...As a result, I've struggled hard with body image...But I don't want to be someone who chooses appearance over health. And I know that every ounce of work I put into challenging self-defeating thoughts is only going to help me age gracefully. I want to move joyfully as long as my body will allow. And I'm lucky enough to know this amazing woman...If you want guidance on how to reframe your thoughts and develop love and understanding exactly as you are, Laura is a resource. I don't think there's anything more worth paying love and attention to than our continued health. I eat well and exercise. It's time for that to be enough."
"From the moment I learned how Laura works with people to improve self-image, compassion, health, & joy of life, I was so open to the process- embracing it all. It was energizing, comforting, & freeing. Despite years of therapy & my healthcare profession, I never heard wellbeing & the process of generating desired results explained & offered in a way that was compassionate & approachable. It just made sense. I was put at ease even though I knew it would be deep work. She brings levity & possibility to the sessions. I trust we are going deep, & during that process, she'll hold non-judgmental space for everything that comes up. Since she shows you how to release judgement & shame, I'm encouraged to move forward to take action. Working with Laura is a process filled with hope & results."
"Laura has helped me completely change the way I show up to social situations. I no longer see them as roadblocks to my healthy lifestyle- they are a part of a healthy lifestyle. She taught me to have my own back every single time so I make choices that are consistent with what matters most to me.
She helped me celebrate trial and error- learning along the way- and seeing all the things I loved about connecting with others besides the food and drinks. Her mindset and breathwork techniques helped transform my social anxiety. Now, I enjoy socializing more and feel stronger with every social situation I have. What used to be triggers are now opportunities for me to practice new skills. And I'm getting better every time. Life always seems easier after calls with Laura! And I'm strengthening my own inner voice to offer that same support."
