Nonstop work emails, never-ending to-do lists, dire global events - it's exhausting.

And if you're like most women, between the demands of your job, an active family life, and social commitments, 
you spend so much time taking care of others that you have little left for yourself.


Feel overwhelmed by the crazy amount of stress in your life?

Reach for sugary snacks & comfort foods when you're feeling anxious, sad, or angry?

Diet constantly and feel trapped in the vicious restrict-binge cycle?

Struggle with negative thoughts about food, your body, or your weight?

Want to end the battle with food and your body, once and for all?

You're in the right place.

Hey there!

I'm Rachel - a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach + Holistic Health Practitioner dedicated to empowering women to break free from dieting, emotional eating, and body shame.

Since 2011, I've helped hundreds of women to reclaim their energy and self-confidence, reduce stress, nourish a healthy relationship with food, and improve their mental & physical well-being by creating a healthy lifestyle that's enjoyable and sustainable. You can find fun articles about my first personal training business at The Buffalo News and UB Today Magazine.

Today. my work is devoted to sharing the information, tools, and resources to help you cultivate a peaceful and loving relationship with food and your body.

If you're want to step off the never-ending dieting rollercoaster and let go of the fear, guilt, and shame surrounding food, I can help. 

Why? Because I've been there. 

Rachel's program has been an inspiring, challenging, and awesome experience. I'm stronger and healthier, both physically and mentally. Thank you just doesn't seem worthy enough. I'm beyond grateful that our paths have crossed!

My story

When I talk about dieting, emotional eating, and body image, it’s from personal experience. 

I started dieting at the age of 12. 

For nearly two decades, I hated my body and tried everything to change it.

I went from being stuck in a vicious cycle of restrictive dieting and binge eating to getting diagnosed with an autoimmune disease to holistically healing my body and creating a healthy relationship with food.

Rachel's positivity, encouragement, energy, and enthusiasm motivated me to keep going. She teaches you how to nourish your body with food and gives delicious recipes that keep you full throughout the day. I highly recommend working with Rachel!

The most significant change I've noticed since working with Rachel has been the improvement in my mental health toward my body and food. I no longer feel negative about my body or guilty after eating like I used to.
