Hi, I'm Amanda!
I help creative women feel really freaking amazing in their bodies. With a unique combination of Eating Psychology, Holistic Nutrition, Radical Self Care Rituals and Mind Body Movement, I help women embody their feminine energy, banish body bashing and rock their relationship with fitness so they can live more connected, more vibrant lives and pursue their passions with purpose.
You’re in the right place if:
- You’re always watching what you eat and striving to maintain a perfectly clean diet (whatever that means).
- You use fitness as a way to control, maintain, and perfect your body but you still don’t love yourself.
- You constantly check your tummy out in the mirror to make sure that you’re getting the results that you push yourself so hard for in the gym.
- You binge on granola, dark chocolate, almond butter, and other “healthy” foods on a weekly or daily basis.
- You mindlessly find yourself ordering pizza and vegan ice cream after an emotionally draining or stressful day.
- When you eat a so-called “bad” food or skip a workout, you feel an immense amount of guilt and promise yourself that you’ll start fresh on Monday.
I know just how physically and mentally exhausTIng it is to be constantly beating yourself up and stressing over what you ate or how your body looks in that little black dress.
It’s not a fun way to live and honestly, it’s holding you back from a life full of happiness, love, and vibrant health. For a short, but very influential part of my life, I fell into a negative cycle of over exercising, binging, emotional eating, guilt and restriction. I know first hand how obsessing over your body will deplete your life of passion, success, and happiness.
In high school, I had a love for art and design. After working diligently and studying day and night, I won a top award with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Teen Vogue, and Target. This award granted me internships with inspiring designers, magazine features, and a huge scholarship to one of the best fashion schools in the world, The Fashion Institute of Technology.
So, at the young age of 18, I went off to Manhattan to pursue my dream of becoming a fashion designer. All alone. I was finally living the life I imagined for myself. The idea of it all was exciting. But in reality, I was lonely, exhausted, and depressed.
I was surrounded by extremely talented people who praised the ultra-thin. As my professors would say, “you can never be skinny enough” (yes, I actually had a professor say that). I believed it. I started to feel this pressure to maintain and perfect my already naturally petite body.
Unconsciously, my once healthy, raw vegan diet turned into eating kale salad in public then a whole box of gluten-free cookies in private. Followed by obsessively working out morning and night to un-do all the calories I consumed. I was falling into this un-healthy, well-dressed, skinny-obsessed trap. My love for design started to fade fast.
What once came naturally to me became a struggle and internal battle for inspiration. My exhausted mind and body was screaming stop. I had this overwhelming sense that I wasn’t doing what I was meant to with my life. So I dropped out of design school and moved back home to Detroit to pursue an education in Holistic Nutrition and Exercise Science.
But the body obsession, over-exercising, binge and emotional eating didn’t magically disappear when I left the fashion industry behind.
Actually, as my knowledge about food and fitness increased, so did my obsession with perfecting my body and achieving optimal health. I was on what I like to call a “high-fact diet.” I knew too much.
After hiring a body image coach and discovering the work of Eating Psychology, my relationship with my body started to transform in a truly positive way. I learned how to be more gentle and loving with myself. I adopted an intuitive way of eating and moving that not only fuels my body but also fuels a passion for life. My journey to body peace and food freedom took awhile, and it’s still a daily practice, but I finally feel at home, inspired, and beautiful in my body.
Using my own personal journey and the experience of coaching hundreds of women, I’ve created a unique coaching method to help you leave the body bashing, binge eating, and guilt-ridden fitness behind.
I’ll help you save yourself from falling deeper and deeper into that cycle of over exercising, binging, AND RESTRICTION. I’ll teach you how to move your body in a fun, feel good way.
If you’re ready to give up all the rules and restrictions around food and finally just be able to enjoy a piece of chocolate cake without feeling guilty or the need to slave away on the dreadmill to burn off the calories… then head over here for my programs and how we can work together.
