Life happens and your needs will change. Kristen believes in equipping you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions in any given circumstance. Each and every person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book.
Define what you value most from your well-being. Together, you and Kristen will use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. She will not dictate a diet for you; together you will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback, co-creating your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward. What you need to bring is commitment and determination.
Everything Kristen does is geared to leave you feeling inspired and motivated. She will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. She will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
