SHIFT COACHING

Shift your thinking.  Shape your life.

ABOUT ME

20181219Shift-260sc.jpg

I am a Board Certified Health, Wellness & Life Coach, Dietitian/Nutritionist & Diabetes Educator with over 20 years of experience specializing in health & wellness, diabetes, mindfulness, intuitive eating, sleep health and resiliency training.

I believe that you are the expert of your life. Sometimes you may get stuck in an aspect of your life and need support to help you move forward. That’s where coaching comes in. As a coach I bring a high level of empathy, support, and accountability to my clients - and a healthy dose of humor too! Clients describe my coaching style as supportive, approachable, empathetic, light-hearted, practical, creative, and motivating. 

I am passionate about helping you find your own version of health, wellness, and purpose in life. With a light-hearted coaching style my primary goal is to meet you where you are throughout the coaching journey, and to guide you in moving forward with the goals that are most important to you. My work is influenced by Brené Brown, Dr. Amy Johnson, Kristen Neff, BJ Fogg and Michael Neill. My life and coaching practices have been most transformed by the Health at Every Size Movement, Weight Neutral Approach to Diabetes Care, The Three Principles, Intuitive eating, and mindfulness practices.

ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE

Things I am most grateful for in my life are my connection to nature, the love and loyalty of my dog & spouse, and the feeling of the wind in my face on a bicycle!  One of my proudest accomplishments has been learning a new language and leaving my "normal" life behind to have a four-year South American adventure of a lifetime!

TESTIMONIALS

What Clients Are Saying

"I am grateful to Diane for her gentle, confident and knowledgeable approach to coaching. I have learned so much about being mindful and I'm confident that I'll be able to continue with these mindfulness practices to help me manage my stress and improve my resiliency."

James T.

I truly felt lost in a sea of diets and frustration until Diane helped me discover mindful eating.  Her encouragement and faith in me helped me finally break free from my struggles with food.

She helped me understand that diets are actually the problem, not the solution. I have begun to trust myself around food more, worry less about the number on the scale, and I feel more at ease with eating the foods I really want to eat without so much guilt.  I'm happily diet-free and never going back!

Dawn L.

"With the help I've received from Diane, I am no longer ruled by mindless habits. I have learned to distance myself from the negative thoughts in my head and tap into my innate wisdom."

Aaron P.

Working with Diane is refreshing and joyful! She has encouraged me to look at things in new ways and to become curious about my thoughts.

I have gained new tools working with her which has led me down a path of discovery and hopefulness.  I'm so grateful for Diane's guidance and expertise in helping me with mindfulness and the body!

Stephanie L

"I have gained many new insights working with Diane which has led me down a new path of self-discovery. I am excited about my future!"

Will S.

I was in a  perpetual state of food choices - having amnesia from one meal to the next.  I realized that intuitive eating was working for me when I noticed that I was making easeful choices about what to eat without worry or guilt. I am no longer ruled by urgent food cravings, nor mindless eating habits.  I know what physical hunger feels like and I wait until I'm hungry to eat.  I feel great, and confident in the lasting power of this intuitive eating process.  I am grateful to Diane for her gentle, confident and knowledgeable approach to coaching.
