I create highly personalized wellness programs to help you find balance, lose weight, prevent illness and heal with food.
But food is only the beginning.
I will teach you to fill your life with powerful healing wisdom from traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, seasonal healing, aromatherapy, and flower essences. You will also learn about the power of praying, singing and dancing like your life depends on it!
My introduction to the world of health is a very personal story. I had a family full of preventable and incurable diseases. I had an eating disorder and a lot of mental and emotional baggage that held me back from living the life that I wanted, and knew I could have.
I am still working on a lot of the inner challenges to this day, but my ability to transform and help others because of what I have gone through has grown significantly. What I have done differently is increase my intake of healthy foods, learn and use lifestyle-balancing tools, and use spiritual practices on a daily basis.
I found that simple is indeed the most significant.

I have been studying complimentary and alternative health and healing since 1998, when I began working at a local health food store, helping people find products and alternative therapies for their health concerns. For two years, I worked as a personal health advise as a Practitioner at Pharmaca and as a personal health coach.
I have studied over 150 dietary theories including blood types, atkins, vegan, the eat-everything-diet, low-fat, high-fat, low-carb and high-carb, seasonal, as well as supplementation for vitamins, minerals, herbs, protiens, probiotics and more. Thus, my nutritional coaching integrates traditional philosophies such as macrobiotics and ayurveda with modern day concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index and raw foods.
I have also studied 1 on 1 with Author and leading health expert Paul Pitchford. In our time working together I got to go deep into the wisdom of Healing with Whole Foods, pre-revolutionary chinese medicine theory and diagnosis. We looked closely at the most common american conditions and ways to heal even the most unruly of diseases. I have been humbled by the beauty of the healing journey working directly with Paul and his clients.
Outside of dietary theories, I have studied and experienced significant results using high quality aromatherapy and flower essences. I have also created personalized sacred rituals for manifesting intentions, and becoming who you truly are using tools such as malas, chanting and alters.
Health Coaching Programs
As a health coach, I create highly personalized wellness programs to help clients find balance, lose weight, prevent illness and heal with food.
My mission is to improve the health and happiness of those suffering from symptoms of imbalance, and to aid in the prevention of disease using a holistic and whole-foods based approach to wellness.
My coaching focuses on women’s issues such as body image, weight and nutrition. My training has allowed me to create a transformative approach to wellness which examines not only what is on our plate, but all things that feed our lives.
Some words from my clients:
“I’ve lost 28 pounds in 3 months without depriving myself or being hungry. And it’s all just a part of my lifestyle. I could do this forever.”- Teresa, Health Client, Boulder, CO
“In just three weeks, my three years of chronic yeast infections have stopped as the result of your advice and recommendations. My doctor had no idea how my body could have had such a rapid change!”- Health Client, Boulder, CO
“Catrina is a nutritional genius”- Health Client, Boulder, CO
Lifestyle, Hobbies and Interests
On a personal level, my top priority is the spiritual aspect of my life, which includes learning and teaching yoga of the body, breath and mind. I find that when I keep up with my spiritual practices, the rest of my life runs much smoother.
I have a passion for creativity which is expressed through creating personalized flower essences, aroma-therapies, skin care products, creating sacred spaces and crystal malas. These are my hobbies and joys to share for health, healing and beauty. I also enjoy yoga and nature as often as possible and never turn down good company. I am fascinated with crystal healing, the power of prayer, and have an endless bandwidth for self-help books.
All of these are playfully incorporated into my health coaching programs as desired by my clients.
