Hi! I'm Carolyn!
I’m a certified health, wellness and mindfulness coach, weight loss specialist and fitness expert, and through my journey of learning how to release emotional crap and habits that didn't serve me, I’ve become an expert who can help you.
EXPERIENCED, CERTIFIED, SUPPORTIVE.
My mission is helping busy, overwhelmed, women better manage their nervous systems and emotional states, so they can tap into their clarity, focus, and confidence and lead a happier, healthier lifestyle while feeling empowered in their bodies.
I work privately one on one coaching and run online and live, local classes for healthy habit building, mindful fitness, weight loss, and mindful drinking, (cutting back, without giving up alcohol).
Now despite having been the fitness/weight loss and wellness expert for ABC TV, quoted as “The Go-To Momma” for living healthy, (Good Morning America), and featured on numerous national TV shows for STYLE TV, THE DOCTORS, THE TODAY SHOW, CBS NEWS, and before you go thinking that I’m all kale, flaxseed, and workouts while chanting “Ommm” let me explain….
I was once an anxious, over-thinking worrier, who problem solved my feelings by checking out, over-drinking wine and mindless munching on crap late at night to shut down my overly chatty brain.
I was filled with self-doubts…
I’m not good enough
My kids hate me
I’m not smart enough
No-one will listen to me
It’s all too hard
I feel stuck
Blah, blah, blah
I could go on and on… but you get the picture
The thing is you would have never known any of this by looking at me. I kept these thoughts well-hidden to those around me.
It was exhausting. All of the mental chatter. Most of it negative. It took a toll.
By the end of each day, I would find myself reaching for a glass of wine, then refilling it and later that evening something crunchy or unhealthy to help me drown out the noise in my head.
I knew I couldn’t go on like this for much longer. I was FED UP with myself.
Then I discovered the power of my own brain, how to grab ahold of my thinking, and redirect my focus and energy in a more purposeful and exciting way.
I began applying key thoughts and phrases to movement and exercise and without even realizing, I actually began to reprogram myself. I was training my brain as if it were the muscles in my body and one day I noticed that my triggers were not wearing me out. I actually became a powerful and efficient problem solver and my own life strategist.
These modalities when combined together with nutrition and self-awareness have been so life-changing that I began teaching this technique to my clients and the results have been and continue to be astounding!
Am I perfect?
Ha!! Not even close.
I’m always a work in progress, just like everyone else. But I sure have leveled up my habits, relationships, and my success in LIFE.
I'm am also trained in a number of disciplines that support people in making lasting change. These include (but aren’t limited to):
Positive psychology, which leverages your strength (rather than focusing on your weaknesses) in order to make changes.
Motivational interviewing, which helps you to link behavior changes to your deepest needs and goals (e.g., “I will change my diet because I want to live to see my grandchildren graduate from college.”)
Habit formation and reversal, which support my clients in making positive habits, or breaking negative ones.
If you are ready to raise the standards for yourself and your life and would like help going from knowing what to do to actually doing it, finding clarity and reclaiming your inner awesomeness, let’s schedule a completely free of charge strategy call and without any obligation. If we are a good fit we move forward to the next steps, and if you are searching for something different, I have many resources to pass along.
Cheers to creating better health, and an AMAZING LIFE.
