It’s a pleasure to meet you. If you’ve tried every diet on the planet but still are struggling with your weight you’ve come to the right place.
My mission is to empower you to take your health and life into your our hands. I’ll share tools, action steps, recipes and inspiration you can easily implement so you can start living a passionate, joyful life in a body you love.
No more diets, self-loathing or hours on the treadmill.
It’s time to embrace the fact that weight loss doesn’t have to be a struggle. I’m here to help you sort through the confusion of which diet to follow and to liberate you from excessive calorie counting, negative self-talk, and workouts you dread.
How many times have you committed to a diet plan, stuck with it for a month or so then resorted back to your old ways?
Consequently, gaining back the weight you lost and then some, on top of the shame of failing yet again.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” – Albert Einstein.
It’s time to break-free from your thought patterns about diets and exercise. Try something new (and effective) and start looking at food as medicine and exercise as a way to connect with your body and relieve stress.
In my weekly newsletter I share simple ways to begin incorporating this way of thinking into your life. Check it out yourself:

“First and foremost, my body has done a 180 in terms of what I crave and how different foods affect my body. I have more energy, I sleep better and I am even starting to lose weight. Secondly, I have found a more spiritual connection within myself that I never knew existed. My nutrition and the practice of yoga have helped me appreciate the benefits of taking care of myself. Finally, the balance in my life is something I never thought I could find. I still enjoy life but I have found new ways to “treat” myself. I don’t deprive myself but I also don’t binge eat the way I have in the past. I am off the “diet” roller coaster and I am never going back.” – Amanda Dossey, Atlanta / Painting with a Twist Buckhaed
You will reach your goal weight without deprivation, calorie counting and the negative self-talk that comes along with stepping on the scale. It’s all within reach. With acceptance, courage and a bit of experimenting you will reach your goal weight, build confidence, and live a passionate, happy, love filled life.
Over the past 11 years I’m helped women overcome their struggles with weight, sugar cravings and food intolerances. I’ve navigated through my own set of health issues: hypoglycemia, hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, constipation, anxiety and depression.
Multiple doctors tried to prescribe medications to mask my symptoms but I wanted to treat the root cause. My body was screaming at me and I was finally ready to listen.
I had to change my perspective because what I was doing wasn’t working. Embracing whole foods, meditation, yoga, and self-acceptance of my body and mind transformed. The results were miraculous – I lost 20 pounds (and kept it off) without deprivation, I started to look at food as a friend verse my enemy, my digestion and health improved, and I feel balanced.
Through my 14-Day Mind Body Detox, 1:1 coaching, workshops, and retreats you’ll experience how great your body was designed to feel. My weekly newsletter will keep you up to date on upcoming programs, special events and offer simple tips to help start living a vibrant life.
Although it didn’t happen overnight my journey gave me the knowledge to help others, just like you, who know they can feel vibrant and live. Trust me, you don’t have to walk around tired, bloated, and overwhelmed. With support, patience and persistence you can create the body and life you crave.
Let’s get you started.
