I help people just like you
make change & reach your goals
so YOU can have
a health-FULL, vibrant life!
Many of us know there are ways we could be healthier: eat better, move more, stress less, sleep longer. But actually doing these things is a far greater challenge.
Or maybe you're struggling with a chronic illness or you've been told by your doctor that you have to make changes, such as going gluten free, reducing your stress, managing your blood sugar, or losing weight.
DID YOU KNOW?
Only 5% of people take a straight path when they're creating new habits. Most of us take a few steps forward and then one or two back as we figure out how to navigate change. You're human: it's common to struggle a bit with your health and lifestyle choices.
But you CAN achieve the healthy and vibrant life you want. You CAN make the changes you need to feel better and live a stronger, more energetic life.
And you CAN make it last.
You just need a little support and guidance.
What if you had someone to help you on your journey to feeling fantastic?
I'm Deanna. I am a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach and I help people just like you get off the health and wellness roller coaster and learn to love a healthy lifestyle. Learning to eat healthier, reduce stress, find exercise you love, and get more restorative sleep are powerful tools for preventing, reversing and managing chronic illness. I love to help people learn how much control they have over their own health.
Personally, I have a passion for eating colorful, delicious, nourishing food; living a non-toxic life, and connecting with people so they can achieve goals they thought they couldn't.
Most importantly, I help people start living their lives with more intention and with a focus on daily habits that add up to long-term health. Health that allows you to do and be the things you love.
This is me on the top of a mountain in Italy after completing a long Via Ferrata route. I felt fantastic! The little steps I take each day to take care of my health allow me to do the things I love!
What is most important to you? What things do you want to be able to do -- until a ripe old age -- and feel great doing them?
If you don't feel you are taking care of yourself in the way you want, it's never too late.
How do you long to feel every day when you wake up?
If the answer is BETTER, then let's talk.
I feel like I am finally starting to understand my relationship with food and first time in my adult life I can look at food in a positive light as a health tool instead of viewing food in a negative way. It has been hard for me to let go of my “diet culture” mindset but Deanna has really helped me learn to embrace the JOMO and celebrate my non-scale related victories.
I cannot recommend Deanna enough! She is one of those people that you can’t help but trust and immediately open up to. She became someone I could have difficult conversations with and discuss vulnerable areas of my life in a safe place without judgement. Deanna is so knowledgeable about health and nutrition and offered different strategies/ideas on ways I could improve my overall health until we found some that fit into my lifestyle. I appreciate so much that she never tried to force me into a “cookie cutter” program, but instead worked with me and my schedule to find solutions that were reasonable, sustainable, and actually achievable. - Stephanie R.
"Deanna has a good understanding of how the entire body and mind works and can help get to the root causes of issues...Overall it was not pressured or stressed, I was really able to open up and dive into what was bothering me because I was able to trust Deanna." -Ben Thomas
I have really made steps to grow in my self-care...Deanna is very kind and really works with you where ever you are to help bring you to the person you would like to be -- whether that is with food, self care practices or lowering stress. I have a better understanding of how to advocate for my own health needs. - Devon N.
You only have one life, one body, one incredible mind and spirit.
