What is your specialization and why did you choose to work in this area?
My specialization is in Advanced Nutritarian Studies, which has a primary focus on a whole food plant based diet. One of the reasons I chose to work in this area is to educate people about the wonderful benefits of eating healthy plant based foods.
----
What do you find most gets in the way of an individual's follow-through and success with change or healing therapy?
One of the major obstacles in an individual’s follow-through is renewing their mindset. It’s extremely difficult for some people to relinquish old habits. It’s hard to give up things they are comfortable with. Learning to incorporate new habits can also be an obstacle.
----
How do you support your client's goal to keep their personal intention and create lasting change?
I offer reinforcing encouragement to my clients on a consistent basis and reassure them that this is a lifestyle health change.
----
Research shows that individuals keep their personal goals when they have a support system in place. What do you offer to provide the care and support necessary for an individual to experience change?
I offer support via email, Skype and telephone support. If possible, I will be available to offer support in person.
----
Many individuals reading this may feel overwhelmed and not know where to begin in setting a personal goal. What is your best advice to bring self-compassion and patience?
My best advice for any individual in this situation would be to have them visualize what they want and write it down. I would let them know that regardless of the situation there is always hope and to encourage them to never give up and take it one day at a time.
