Private Coaching Success Stories
"Julia, I can't believe how far you've brought me toward my optimum self. My skin is glowing, I've dropped 15 pounds, and for once I feel in control of my actions and my life. I used to think self-care meant eating whatever instant-gratification treat I wanted at the moment, even though I knew the consequences would make me regret it. Now, I love the surge of energy and power I find in a glass of green juice or a collard green roll-up. I can run circles around women half my age! Well, I could if I were able to get my husband's hands off me! I can't thank you enough for your wisdom, your patience, your gentle but persistent encouragement, and for being a shining example of everything you teach."
"Working with Julia is the single best thing I have ever done for my health.
I eat healthier, feel better, cook at home more, sleep better, have more energy….the list is a mile long. I found some foods simply make me sick and how to eliminate them completely from my diet. I also learned the benefit of eating organic and how these small changes help our world.
The wonderful thing about Julia is her approach. You are an individual to her. My eating habits were always a source of embarrassment to me and I felt uncomfortable divulging some of my poor eating habits. But in our time together, there was a space of non-judgmental honesty. I cannot imagine ever being so honest with anyone else and when it comes to food habits, I cannot say how important that was to me. Thank you Julia, for changing my life!"
I never expected that I would make this many changes so painlessly!
Since working with Julia, my mood is better, my energy level is higher, my skin is more clear, I feel great about the foods I’m eating and more confident about my skills in the kitchen, and I feel noticeably less stressed.
I think the most important part of all of the above is that it doesn’t feel like it takes any real effort. It just seems like second nature now. This program has been enlightening, enjoyable, and educational. I never felt I was being criticized or judged, but rather supported, respected, and empowered to set and reach goals. I feel confident that I’ve made genuine lifestyle changes that I will be able to maintain - and that feels incredible.

I had to share this with you. I went shopping today and bought a women's Helly Hansen fitted jacket - couldn't get into ANYTHING in that store last year when I really needed a jacket, even the biggest guy’s stuff.
I have to say, my weight seems to just steadily be dropping, plus my husband’s down around 3 pounds and 1.5 inches. Such a great reminder for me to keep cooking what I need and want to eat and to not worry about what everyone else is doing.
