Hey there, I’m Emily
It’s great to meet you!
I’m a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach and I’m passionate about working with those who want to feel balanced, energetic and strong, but are struggling to form lasting health and wellness habits.
I partner with you to help you create health and wellness habits with more ease that hold up even when things get busy.
I bring my health coach training, past experience working in healthcare, interest in neuroscience and personal health journey to my coaching practice to provide a warm, welcoming space where you are guided and supported in creating lasting health and wellness habits that move you toward a vibrant future.
Through our work together, we discover what your personalized path is to forming habits that fit seamlessly into your day. The habits that will support you in showing up as the balanced, energetic and strong person you want to be so you can move through your life with more ease, flow and joy and wake up feeling happy, relaxed, focused and looking forward to the day ahead.
My own health and wellness journey really took off about 10 years ago when I was diagnosed with several autoimmune conditions.
I knew it was important to get into regular routines with exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress management, and taking time for myself, but I felt overwhelmed with everything going on in my life.
There were just too many things to get done each day between my work as a physical therapist, taking care of my family, and everything else.
I had no clue how to fit it all in, but I had a deep desire to take the time out of my day to spend on myself.
My attempts often ended in disappointment as week after week passed without getting into the consistent wellness habits I was striving for.
The whole process felt energy draining, the exact opposite of how I wanted to feel.
I took a step back and realized I was trying to power through on motivation and willpower alone which, for me and many others, is a difficult path to lasting habits.
I threw myself into researching habit change. I enrolled in a health coach training program and learned evidence-based techniques to help people form lasting habits.
I learned there are certain ways to approach habit change that actually work with the brain and not against it.
When I started to implement these approaches in my own life, forming habits became easier and felt lighter. Not only did the way I performed my habits change, but my whole mindset around my habits and wellness transformed.
I started to wake up feeling energized, focused, stronger and happier. I was better able to handle stress and I was showing up in my life with more ease, flow and balance. Everything changed for the better – my health, my relationships, my outlook on life.
I am now grateful to bring all of this experience together in my coaching practice to help guide others on this journey as they uncover their own paths forward toward lasting habit change to become their most happy and healthy selves.
A little more about my background…
I also have a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University and previously specialized in treating patients with neurologic and chronic health conditions.
I have an endless passion for learning, a huge curiosity for all things health and wellness, and can often be found going down research rabbit holes related to the mind-body connection.
