You have been living with friction in your body for long enough! I’ve been there. I know exactly what it’s like to feel betrayed and burdened by my body. I’ve found a way out of the chaos, and I created a system to help you too. Let me tell you a little about what my body and I have been through, and how I got where I am today.
I grew up with six siblings in a disorganized, chaotic, and emotionally inflammatory home. Comfort eating was a common form of connection in my home, and since there were so many of us, competitive comfort eating led me to habitual junk food binging. I learned early on that food felt like a safe - even sacred place. I would eat to stuff down the feelings of unhappiness and unworthiness. Eating something decadent made me feel like I could escape the chaotic jumble of my emotions, or maybe even feel love. It was a powerful distraction from a situation I couldn’t control.
There were mixed messages in the house around body image. My mom wasn’t a dieter, and she did her best to provide us with balanced meals and healthy snacks, but when I hit puberty, there was little support in getting to know my body as a young woman. My mother would tell me that God doesn’t make mistakes, but point out fresh breakouts, and belly rolls when my body was folded up in yoga postures. Vanity was frowned upon, but somehow perfectionism was assumed.
All the while, my health had begun spiraling downward for no apparent reason. My athletic abilities were declining rapidly despite my hours of dedication to fitness every day. By the end of middle school, my body was so fatigued that I felt like I was wearing ankle weights in my gymnastics class, I had chronic ear infections, and I caught every cold that went around. My computer teacher called me Rudolph jokingly because of my constant red, runny nose.
My mom took me to the doctor, but they only tested for iron and thyroid levels. When both produced normal results, I was told that I needed to work harder on my cardio to generate more energy. Over the next few years, despite tireless efforts to workout harder, my physical abilities continued declining. By my sophomore year, I could no longer run a single lap around the track without intense, doubled over wheezing. I was forced to quit the track team. I felt like a quitter and a failure.
By the age of 19, I was battling hay fever, acne, boils, inflamed/itchy skin, asthma, sinus infections, ear infections, intense back pain, brain fog, alternating diarrhea and constipation, and complete mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion. I was napping 3-4 hours a day after school. I looked normal, even healthy, but I was terribly uncomfortable in my skin and felt like a zombie.
While in class, a teacher introduced the idea that dairy sensitivities are related to hay fever, and a light bulb went off in my head. I thought, “I wonder if that’s what’s wrong with me.” I started connecting the dots: my poor college student diet consisted mainly of whole, clean foods, while my diet on visits home included many indulgences like pizza, ice cream, cereal, and baklava. It became clear that when I ate dairy products, my symptoms were triggered.
I began the process of eliminating dairy from my life. I felt and saw the difference immediately. Within months, I was running again. In fact, my first run after giving up dairy, I ran 5 miles. That was the longest distance I’d ever run in my life. I got my lungs back, and I could finally breathe with ease again! My body was healing; undeniably.
After developing a dairy elimination system, I began my studies in holistic nutrition (Nutritional Therapy Association), which allowed me to continue to clean up my eating habits. I wanted to educate everyone around me but saw so many people struggling to accept food as part of the mind, body, soul relationship, and conversation.
At the core of my dietary transformation, I was also undergoing a spiritual, emotional, and mental remodel. With perfect timing, life was offering me lessons, and nuggets of wisdom that guided me to learn how to change my frame of mind, rewrite belief systems that weren't serving me and create my own dream life. This is what made my dietary transformation possible, and what inspired me to study life coaching with the (Tony) Robbins Madanes Training Center.
I now coach women on how to connect the mind, body, and spirit in positive conversation, so they can stop dieting, and truly transform their relationships with their bodies. I focus on a holistic mind, body, spirit approach with my clients, empowering them to strengthen their connection to their intuitive voice, emotional intelligence, and genuine motivators.
As I’ve coached more and more women on how to build a healthy, loving relationship with their bodies, how to eat intuitively, and how to feel comfortable and confident in their skin: I’ve watched their energy skyrocket, weight drop, and confidence soar! I’ve since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping as many women as possible, who have felt let down by their bodies, to feel gorgeous, healthy, energetic, and confident from the inside out.
I've worked with many private clients and spoken in front of countless groups. I'm living my dream of coaching women to fall madly in love with their bodies and their lives. With experience, my inspiration to create a system to help even more women grew stronger and stronger until I birthed my system; Love Your Body Now! A series of 9 Steps to Fall In Love With Your Body, and Learn To Eat (Healthy Foods) Intuitively.
Are ready to make peace and friendship with their body.
Lifetime yo-yo dieters.
Feeling like a foreigner in your body.
Uncomfortable looking at the mirror.
Postpartum, and out of your normal balance.
Can’t lose weight, or keep it off no matter what you try.
Tired of measuring portions.
Tired of counting calories.
Tired of earning food with exercise.
Tired of feeling like a failure every time they step on the scale.
Women who are craving a positive relationship with the person they see in the mirror.
Women who want to feel comfortable, vibrant, and gorgeous in their bodies!
My life experience has been a crazy intense journey of learning to trust my intuition, overcoming failures and deep-seated insecurities, understanding my innate value as a human - as a woman, and choosing every single day to invest my time, energy, and resources into the care of my body - so I CAN answer the calling on my heart. What I teach comes from real life, not theories I've read about. I've been transforming and intuitively creating a path for women for the last 15 years. This means I am my own flavor.
I know exactly what it’s like to go from feeling very blah and cloudy, with only a faint memory of the vibrancy of childhood, to feeling stronger, more capable, and more excited by life than ever, all from the transformation and conversation I experienced IN my body.
Diet and exercise are crucial elements in achieving good health and vitality; however, they dominate the conversation to a dangerous degree. The truth is that the things you believe about yourself, your diet, and your fitness have more effect on your metabolism and vitality than what you eat, or how many calories you burn. I absolutely cover the importance of nutritional density and balance, and the importance of exercise, but I also cover the most important part of the big picture; your beliefs, emotions, habits, and ability to redesign reality as you know it.
Society has taught you how to have a transactional relationship with your body. I’ll teach you how to have a trusting, loving, abundance-based friendship with your body. That’s when you will experience physical health and balance in a way that will have you craving the exact nutrients your body wants, and movement as a form of physical expression and cleansing. I believe this is an essential skill set on the path to living joyfully.
You’ve been battling your body for way too long! I’m here to guide you as you shed all the habits, beliefs, and energetic patterns that have been holding you back from the beautiful relationship you deserve to have with your body. There might be difficult moments, but the results are going to make your entire life flow more gracefully. And I’ll be with you, cheering every step of the way!
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me, as a client?
The Love Your Body Now Signature System workshops and programs were created for people who are absolutely OVER living out the never-ending cycle of diet mentality and culture, and TOTALLY ready to feel confident, comfortable, and gorgeous in their body. This means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: "I shouldn't eat that… I wish I looked like her… That will go straight to my_____... If only I were ____ lbs thinner… Something is wrong with me..." They were created for you to put systems in place within a few short months which will eventually lead you to full trust in your body's ability to tell you exactly what it needs in order to feel energetic, strong, and capable, even while losing weight!
As a woman who has battled low confidence, discomfort in my body, feelings of betrayal from my body, and injured body image, I'm known to work best with other women who are craving with every ounce of their being, to learn to love themselves to confidence, comfort, and vibrant health in their body. I work with women who are committed to their success no matter what, who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to love their body to health and vitality. My clients often tell me – "just tell me exactly what to eat, and I will!" Consider what you'll do with me, to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to build a trust-filled, balanced, sustainable, and fulfilling friendship with your body.
My programs won’t work for…
Those who aren’t serious about paving a completely new path for themselves. Please know I’m very selective in who I work with. I’m known to (gently) turn away potential clients who aren’t suited for my programs and therefore won’t get the results for which they would have signed up. I choose clients that I can truly assist on their path to success. Love Your Body Now programs are not for those who are struggling to make ends meet. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis have a much harder time implementing the steps in the program. If you currently fall into this category, don’t worry, I’ve been there too. It’s okay, there’s always a place to start when it comes to turning life, luck, and finances around. I look forward to working with you in the future, for now:
Take full advantage of all the FREE content I give away in my Facebook group: (Click to join) include the link here Paradise Mind + Paradise Body.
Join my mailing list for special giveaways and more free content.
Schedule a Free Discovery call to brainstorm how you can create some powerful shifts in your life and finances so we can work together sooner than later.
Doing these three things will help you get primed for our work. When you're ready, call me, and we'll get you started. I'm in no rush and will be here when you need me. Other people I opt out of working with, are chronic whiners, skeptics, and individuals who do not understand the concept of radical self-responsibility. Those who are likely to complain about, or challenge every aspect of the program, rather than surrender and accept the opportunity for a brand-new chance to create personal power where there once was pain, will not be invited to join the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not apply for a Breakthrough call, and I hope you understand the reasons. We would be unlikely to enjoy working with one another so the time and energy would be a wash. Is that fair?

Here are a few of my most recent testimonials:
“Before working with Natalie, I struggled with self doubt, lack of confidence, and accepting where I am RIGHT NOW. Natalie helped me to fully own and accept WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW!! She helped me in acknowledging where my mindset has been "flawed,” and allowed me to feel what I needed to feel regarding my body. Since working with Natalie, I’m still benefiting with from the lifelong skills I learned. I now have useful tips for revisiting when I get into a negative mindset, heightened confidence, and compassion and love for my body on its unique journey.” ~ Erica B.
“Before hiring Natalie for coaching, My relationship with my weight/number on the scale was a struggle. After having my baby girl I would say all I wanted was to loose weight even went on a strict “diet”. My eating habits were out of balance! Some days I would restrict what I consumed per my diet. Other days found myself barely eating and when I did, felt like I was feeding my body junk which made me gain more weight. I felt bad for not loving my body for all it does, and being upset that I wasn’t back to my pe-baby “body” after a year.
Natalie helped me understand that the number on the scale is just that a number! She helped me realize that my only goal shouldn’t be to just loose weight but to eat better and move my body. She helped me realize that putting myself on a strict diet isn’t the way to go. She helped me realize that whole, nutrient dense foods are best! I’ve been feeding my body all the good nutrients it’s been craving for, and I’ve never felt better! She also helped me fully love my body! I’ve noticed that by feeding my body good nutrients, letting go of the negative talk, and moving my body everyday; it’s helped my relationship between my mind and body! I was expecting my body to be a certain way (especially after baby) but continued to feed my body junk food and yet I wasn’t loving my body for the life I was able to bring into the world!
I’m so thankful for Natalie’s program because I’m in such a better place in my relationship with my body! What scale? I’m enjoying not worrying about the number on the scale and enjoying life and this body! Since feeding my body good nutrients, when I do indulge I no longer feel guilty or have to go “work it out”. My body no longer craves those sugary treats even when I indulge! Since fully loving my body and feeding it better I’m back to fitting pre-baby clothes I had in the back of my closet! I wasn’t set on loosing weight anymore but rather loving my body and the journey I was on and the results are incredible! I don’t just love my body now but learned to love it at every stage I went through! I’m taking better care of this body and I know my body is loving it!” ~Stephanie R.
“Natalie has a gift for asking the right questions! I appreciate her intelligence, listening ability, and the supercharged honesty in her nature. It's also been helpful to speak with someone who can easily translate the healing arts/self-development work for someone like me who is relatively new to the benefits that come with practicing mindfulness. She also has a lovely speaking voice, which makes her guided meditations so peaceful.
I originally approached her because I felt I was not well-prepared to start a scary new phase of my life--attempting to get a book considered for publication. I felt paralysed to begin putting my work out into the world for critique. Things felt unorganized and I had no structure to what I was doing. I had a general idea, but needed to fine-tune the details so I could move ahead. While my original reason for working with her was to quell these specific anxieties, her influence has also helped me approach other areas of my life, my work and my relationships, with new insights.
Now, after an eight week course with Natalie, I feel more in touch with own capacity to decide how and when to feel anxious. I am more prepared to weather the ups and downs of optimism and rejection that come with the creative arts. She was able to lead me through thought provoking questions. Sometimes it was just one line that changed my perception and undo years of one-way thinking. There is no judgment, only a genuine interest, concern, and best of intentions as she helps you work through whatever issue has risen. I'm so very thankful to have had this opportunity to work with her. I left every session feeling lighter.” ~Deborah B.
Great question! It's my job to provide you with the tools you need to tear down your old framework and start your rebuilding process. It's your job to own your story, process, and reconstruction, One. Step. At. A. Time.
All my clients start the program at different places in their mind, health, and relationship to self. Some women are ready to go and hit the ground running - creating dramatic shifts in a very short time frame, while others have a bit more groundwork to do first. Every single one of my clients is living a unique story.
There is no wrong place to be as long as you're aiming toward self-love and nourishment. Once the groundwork has been laid, actually losing weight (and keeping it off) will become easier than ever. If you try to jump to this step without the groundwork, it will fail… just like every other diet. Because the difference TRULY is in changing the beliefs and emotions that have been holding you back for years, or maybe even decades!
How can I guarantee myself that I will truly change my relationship with my body and food, after all these years of trying and failing?
Be totally committed to your own success. Do the homework! Understand that this is a proven process, that only works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of the Love Your Body System, have found a renewed confidence and comfort in their bodies, felt their zest and vitality for life reignite, and have learned how to be around, and talk about food in a way that allows freedom of heart and peace of mind. You can have this too, but it takes 100% commitment.
Great! It sounds like you’re ready to step into your future! Yes, if you have a couple of questions, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a Breakthrough call here, and I’ll be happy to walk you through the different options to see which one will be the very best for you. I can’t wait to see you succeed and I am honored to be the one to help you. Let’s do this!
