Feedback - this is the most gratifying part of my Health Coaching.
From East Coast SUP athlete and endurance competition racer, after 3 months:
"Thanks so much - so happy we are making progress.
I'm leaner, less fatigued, able to train harder, overall feeling much better and able to make better food choices, without those decisions being difficult.
You are amazing - I'm not easy to change :)
Looking forward to a healthy week!"
After 6 months:
"My top three goals upon starting the 6-month program were to be able to train hard, avoid injury and lean out a bit.
Paula was able to help me work toward these goals by coaching me to make subtle but long-lasting changes that don’t feel like a sacrifice but rather choices I WANT to make.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been my ability to train hard and not feel sluggish. Also, being more aware of every food choice I make.
The most significant overall change I have noticed has been more consistent even-keeled Energy levels!".
~ Stephanie, SUP endurance competitive athlete, New York
I did just finish the 10-day detox! A friend John was coming on island to take some rest and recuperation because he was feeling depleted.
I suggested that he join me in the 10-day detox to help with his healing.
He did join me and we finished this past Wednesday.
We stuck to the program. The effect was immediate and profound.
For me, it solidified the direction in which I was headed: a mostly vegan diet. For John, it was a huge eye-opener in the way that he needs to change his diet. In fact, it was a life-changing experience for him.
We ate so well during the first 5 days that we felt no need to reintroduce any animal protein into the next 5 days. We are actually still eating mostly in the detox style. I am teaching John how to cook greens and legumes so that he can continue this way of eating and cooking as a lifestyle when he goes home.
So, your note enquiring post the Detox workshop came at the perfect moment, as I was thinking of emailing you and thanking you for your great work. On a spiritual level, this detox helps raise the frequency, which is sorely needed by all of humanity.
Thank you again, and wishing you many blessings and much success in all that you do!"
"I've been working with Paula since March and have had wonderful results. I've been on a clean eating plan for a few years, and Paula has been the link I've been missing for my weight loss goals."
From the Man of a family for whom I designed a detox program specific to each family member since each has different needs.
7 days into the detox, his feedback to me :
"I'm feeling just awesome.
Nice energy, I feel awake, good power, more tolerance.
Weight coming off.
I don't miss anything. I don't miss the coffee.
We're all doing better, including our little one.
I'm convinced that we need to adapt the lifestyle to this new way of eating."
After 6 months:
"My top 3 goals were to get my health under control, manage my negative thyroid symptoms and lose weight.
Paula helped me achieve these by keeping me accountable as to my daily food and lifestyle choices via scheduled touch points. She also helped me relook at and restructure my supplementation which was most helpful.
Results: My functional medicine doctor is super happy with the thyroid lab results and my weight loss; so am I. I lost a significant 20lbs and most importantly my thyroid nodule (which another doctor wanted to remove surgically) has shrunk considerably to non-threatening. I feel so much better overall!
I adopted a vegetarian lifestyle with Paula which I find is so much better for me than Paleo. I am eating primarily plant-based and have zero desire to eat meat.
Just as Paula observed from our very first conversation after hearing my story, and now from my latest results the doc also believes my adrenals is contributing to my hormonal imbalance, although improved.
Paula is well informed, caring and clear. I always felt she had my best interests at heart, and never failed to give sane and sound advice. She kept me honest and focussed; the program was a Success!
Thank you, Paula, for all you have done, your kind and caring wisdom. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need. I am so grateful to have met you."
Note: Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
Instead of creating lists of restrictions, during our work together I coach my clients to explore improvements and implement gradual positive changes for long-term results that work specifically for each person. Incrementally we raise your health bar. And we work beyond your food plate.
Based on the principle of bio-individuality and the domino effect, as these pieces accumulate in time, the individuals whom I work with find the changes collectively create a much larger impact than they originally expected.
I believe that proactively managing and optimizing your health is our divine responsibility and a path to personal power. We work on what you want to improve and within the circumstances of your unique needs and situation. My work with you allows you a sacred space for self-healing where there is no place for judgment or stress, only for your transformation to a better level of yourself. The quality of your Life equals the quality of your questions.
I empower, inspire, enlighten, strengthen, encourage and keep you accountable to your SELF CARE = SELF LOVE to make your goals reality.

FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
A NOTE TO OUR LEGACY AS WOMEN :
From my understanding of life, this text is applicable to both genders, however, it's time that women step up and take the reins of creating the right partnership and direction Mankind needs to head to, NAMELY PEACE.
“When we heal ourselves, others are healed. When we nurture our dreams, we give birth to the dreams of humankind. When we walk as loving aspects of the Earth Mother, we become the fertile, life-giving Mothers of the Creative Force. When we honor our bodies, our health, and our emotional needs, we make space for our dreams to come into being. When we speak the truth from our healed hearts, we allow life abundant to continue on our Mother Planet.”
“As women, we are continually writing the history of the Legacy of Women. We cannot point a finger at men or each other without owning the pain of past generations who forgot how to give or teach human compassion. Our own family trees are filled with teaching situations and with tragic examples that may have blinded our own Ancestors to the values of truth as it is found in love. Now, the destiny of wholeness of the human race falls to the Sisterhood because all things are born of woman.”
“When each woman honors her Self, more raw, creative energy is available to be used by the whole to effect changes in the way humankind reacts to life. When women are no longer lost, asking others to tell them what they should do or how they should live, there will be great changes in our world. This is not to say that the friendships and bonds of women are not to be used; on the contrary, the support of other women who have walked the same path is paramount. This kind of support is based on truth and delivered with caring-without projections or judging another. That kind of support is healthy and productive, when other women create a safe place in which to share personal thoughts and offer alternatives in a respectful way. The sisterhood always supports every woman who is willing to surmount her own challenges in order to grow.”
“The Legacy of Woman does not have to include the former hurts that have set woman against woman, women against men, or caused women to destroy themselves through sabotage….there is no need to get involved with the high drama and pettiness that has kept us from achieving human harmony when we are busy working on becoming our personal visions.”
“Self-esteem is reclaimed when the feminine principle of nurturing the Self is practiced, instead of expecting our sense of wholeness to come from our relationship to another person. When we care enough for ourselves to take the time we need to give to the Self, we will feel complete.”
“In every instance, no matter how the situation presents itself, each individual is responsible for seeing her or his own hurt and for finding a way to heal it without making the other person responsible for that pain. This is the way of the feminine nurturing principle: going within, finding the problem, and remedying it through nurturing the self.”
