HI, I’M KARRIE, AND I’M A WHOLE-LISTIC SELF CARE COACH.
That means I help busy people, suffering from excess weight, work/life imbalance and overwhelm, reach their personal and professional goals through holistic wellness and compassionate self care. I help my clients detox from harmful foods and pharmaceuticals, and regain their connection to Self so they can sustain a life of peaceful productivity.
MY STORY IS A LOT LIKE YOURS...
I was a hard working creative professional with multiple projects in the air, and I loved it! I just didn’t love the burnout fatigue, dosing myself with caffeine to keep my energy up, starting a healthy lifestyle plan then bailing on it, or the physical pain of carrying extra weight on my body. I tried every food plan, every kind of therapy to get the weight off...all the while chastising myself for not “doing it right”, or comparing myself to others who - in my opinion - had. In the meantime, I kept gaining weight, and was now suffering from hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, insomnia and even some mysterious symptoms I’m still confused about. I decided to join a 12-step program for food addiction as an extreme last resort, and I successfully released over 100 lbs. of weight with the loving support of that community.
COMPASSION IS THE FOUNDATION OF HEALTH
What I discovered through the process of releasing the weight, is that my obesity, my hypervigilance and my unhealthy lifestyle were all just a symptoms of a greater issue; my unresolved psychological work and my lack of self compassion. The 12-step program provided me with a food plan and guidance, but I wanted to uplevel my life altogether. By then, I had seen what optimal physical and emotional health could look like and it all started with treating my body with only the best care. I wanted to start using fresh food as preventative medicine, handle my emotional issues without sugar, caffeine or pharmaceuticals AND develop an affordable, sustainable self care program that fit my big, busy life. And that began when I structured my self care program around self compassion and holistic nutrition.
CREATE THE SPACE TO “GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY”
Today, I’m still a hard working creative professional with multiple projects in the air!...I just get them done with clarity, calm and a lot less stress. I am even more productive than I was before, and I have taught myself easy techniques and strategies to maintain my new healthy lifestyle specifically for people with little time, little dime and a multitude of responsibilities.
