Paula is an amazing, intuitive coach who is always fully present with me when we meet. She listens to me, hears what I say and is able to “read between my lines” to what I am REALLY saying.
She helps me get to the heart of what I am feeling and where I am blocked much much faster than I could ever do myself. She doesn’t let me get away with the easy answers but keeps asking and asking deeper and deeper questions until I am able to get to that place where I can find the real answers.

Paula has a gentle, honest approach as a health coach. She’s been easy for me to cry as well as laugh with as I’ve walked through many events these past six months that even one alone could have really knocked me off center! I have changed for the better in areas of my life which I’m not sure I would have been so quick to work on without Paula’s gentle yet strong and clear steps for more positive mindset, focus, and attention. Anyone looking for positive changes in life, would benefit by asking Paula to walk with you for support as your health coach.

When Paula and I had our initial consultation, I have to be honest, I was quite a skeptic. Not in Paula’s skills, but in my own ability to make a change – a change for life. I wanted to change, I wanted to feel better more than anything, but had no idea how to push myself to the next level – I didn’t have the confidence or the tools to even accomplish it. Paula gave me all of that! At first I thought it would be all about food and healthy eating, but I got so much more than that – more than I could have ever imagined. I think the biggest wake up call came when Paula asked me to join her at her family’s cottage on Lake Michigan. We had our session on the beach and I will never get this time with her out of my head.

Starting back to school and trying to keep my health and exercise in check was a bit of a challenge for me. Thank goodness I found Paula! She has shown me new and better ways to overcome obstacles and also how to stay motivated with my fitness and eating goals. With her help, I have set goals that I know are obtainable and I know I that I can stay on track. Her expertise and patience has also helped me during those times when I wanted to just give up. But now I have the tools I need to reach all my health goals! She is truly amazing! Thank you Paula from the bottom of my heart!
