"I can wholeheartedly say that working with Chelsea was the best decision I made in a long time. I have dealt with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, and lack of self-worth all which manifested in disordered eating and compulsive behavior. Trapped in a vicious cycle, I honestly felt that I would forever deal with restriction, bingeing, and purging. I could not see a life outside of my shame and finding the next best diet. I suffered these limiting beliefs for over a decade and genuinely did not know how people could just eat moderately. I had no idea what it felt like to eat moderately or feel calm around food. Before my 30-minute consultation call with Chelsea, I struggled with how honest I “should” be and what information I wanted to share with her, however I quickly divulged many details I had not planned on sharing. Chelsea creates a space of non-judgement and it is easy to trust that she understands what you are going through. Now after 2 months of working with Chelsea I feel so proud of myself. I can go to a grocery store and buy real whole foods, I am not researching diets, I refuse to restrict myself, I enjoy cooking, and I feel safe around food. I NEVER thought this was possible for me. For me this was about finding peace with food and breaking a disordered eating cycle. I am so thankful to Chelsea for all the support and tools she has given me to help me live a meaningful life NOT obsessing over controlling food."

"I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to work with Chelsea. I contacted her in November, because I had some stubborn weight that I couldn't lose in addition to struggling to get pregnant. From the first moment we spoke I was blown away by her knowledge of nutrition and health. My plan was easy to follow, and she was always there to answer any question that I had. I felt like I had gained a close friend and confidant. Within the first month of working with Chelsea I had lost 6 pounds. I had more energy and felt like I knew what I was putting into my body and I was empowered to make positive decisions regarding food. Not only did Chelsea help me with my relationship with food, but she also helped me work through some emotional issues. While working with her I got some tough news about my fertility....no joke, we were literally in the middle of a session when I answered my call waiting to get results from my gynecologist. I was so grateful to have her during that moment because she allowed me to feel any and all of my feelings and she didn't judge me. She is tremendous - you really cannot go wrong with working with her. I am so glad that I took the time to invest in myself and work with Chelsea. She knows her stuff!!"
"Over the past month I worked with Chelsea in her 30 day reboot package. It was just what I needed to shake the last few traces of the diet mentality. I did lose a few more pounds with her but more importantly/more valuable I gained confidence in myself and I learned how to be more mindful about food. She provided me with a customized plan and a foundation that I can refer back to. Her plan made me feel energized instead of hungry all of the time. I'm so glad I got the chance to work with her she really shifted my mindset around diet, food, weight, body image and a whole bunch more! I highly recommend her especially if you're trying to break free from the diet mentality and focus on a healthy lifestyle and NOT another diet. She is such a caring, knowledgeable, and seriously genuine person and makes sure to thoroughly answer any and all questions that you may have."

"It’s so true that angels come into your life at the perfect time. The idea of steady, consistent energy throughout the day, and a deeper sense of nourishment for my body, sounded really great. Chelsea coached me through cleaning out my kitchen, gave guidelines on how to read labels and cook and prepare meals (which I never enjoyed in the past). She makes the planning easy and has delicious, new, and nutritious recipes. Rather than feeling deprived, I felt that I was taking wonderful care of myself and paying attention in a way that I really don’t ever remember doing. At the end of 6 weeks, I attended a conference where I was acknowledged onstage…..and felt confident, healthy, and strong! Chelsea is attentive and caring, and the 1:1 coaching sessions helped me discover insights about myself, and establish new habits. Thank you Chelsea for making such an impactful difference in my life!"
"First of all, besides being a caring and sincere individual, I have found working with Chelsea for these past two months to be easy, enlightening and most of all - educational. Chelsea brings so much deep knowledge of nutrition and health to each of our meetings. I’ve been a life-long dieter and I thought I knew a lot but I have learned so much more through working with her. I feel great and I love eating cleanly. I am trying a new approach to food and my health with her non-judgmental guidance. I highly recommend Chelsea! She has a teacher’s heart and has walked this road, and all she wants is to help you on your journey to good health."

"Working with Chelsea to improve my health and eating habits was just what I needed! Not only does she take time to customize and provide recommendations suited to your lifestyle, she also keeps things REAL. I used to travel and work long hours and Chelsea was really good about giving me realistic recommendations and suggestions that I could easily apply to my day-to-day routine, in turn making it easy for me to take care of myself. I’d say Chelsea is different because she takes the time to get to know you, your lifestyle, and what’s going to work best for what you hope to achieve. Everyone is different and it’s not just about changing your diet, it’s so much more than that, which is what Chelsea taught me. I felt the changes early on, so I knew we were on the right track. Working with Chelsea was great. She’s very accessible and talks to you like a friend - she’s your best cheerleader!"
"Working with Chelsea was a real game changer. I've struggled with food my entire life, and tried every diet out there, while my weight yo-yoed up and down. But after working with Chelsea, she made me realize for the first time just how over-loaded my life was, and how my mis-use of food played into that. It really helped me not be so hard on myself, and cut myself some slack. Once I started to to put more focus on creating the life I want, the food part started to fall into place more naturally. It wasn't a quick fix, and it's still evolving, but I finally feel like things are shifting for me. I am so grateful for the guidance and love Chelsea gave me."
"I've struggled with weight nearly all my life. Or at least it's felt this way. At 41, after two pregnancies with gestational diabetes I found myself feeling like a slug. I was attempting to run after a toddler, while still paying attention to my 7 year old and sometimes my husband, going through a yoga certification and working part-time as a teacher. Forget about me time! After discovering my ex-husband also had diabetes, I became panicked. I tried to eat healthy, but I would never stick to it. I needed help. Enter Chelsea - when I met her a little under a year before I signed up to work with her, I immediately liked her, but wasn't sure that I could stick to another plan. I felt like I would fail. So I waited...and truly that's my only regret! Working with Chelsea was easy. She is knowledgeable, genuine, caring and truly wants her clients to feel good. She took on the challenge of pleasing my kids' and husbands' palettes, and gave me a ton of useful information without it being overwhelming. I was able to make some significant changes in just 30 days -- I've never felt deprived, always felt supported and loved truly and I'm confident that I can continue this journey going forward. I highly recommend working with Chelsea - she's fabulous!"

"Working with Chelsea has been so healing. I was at a very difficult time in my life and I knew things needed to change. With so much health information out there it can be very confusing but Chelsea made it simple and easy to make small lifestyle changes that led to even more positive changes. In the short time I've worked with Chelsea, I've cut down the caffeine, increased my protein/veggie intake, learned there's other ways to get fiber than bread, gained weight and have seen a decrease in my anxiety- all because my body feels safe and well nourished! I'm so thankful for Chelsea and her guidance on this healing path!"

"Chelsea is a great nutrition coach who takes the time to tailor her recommendations and education to your needs and personality. The time I spent with Chelsea helped me understand how to choose foods and analyze ingredients to the benefit of my and my son's health. I have totally changed the foods that are now in my home. An added benefit is less food waste. If you are confused on what you should be eating, the day with Chelsea is well worth the investment to set you up for positive change."
"Working with Chelsea was one of the best decisions I have made this year! Leading up to our sessions, I experienced symptoms of chronic digestive issues for the past few years. I was constantly doing the “trial and error” method and dealing with anxiety when planning a meal or even when I was eating because I did not know how my stomach was going to react. When we first began, Chelsea analyzed my daily meals and discovered an eating pattern that I did not realize was affecting my body. Her goal was to remove bread and grains since I was relying on those food groups for the majority of my meals. I saw a dramatic difference in how I was feeling within the next week or two and I know it was a result of eliminating bread and grains. Not only did she suggest eliminating the grains, but she also gave me the “why” behind removing these food groups and the science behind it. I felt extremely empowered because I understood why these food groups might be causing a reaction. She also helped me incorporate foods that were healthy, nutritious, and filling in order to make up for the bread and grains that I was eliminating. There were definitely some bumps in the road and I am still on the road to recovery, but Chelsea made me feel like I was not alone and was always available with such kind words. It is one thing to work with someone who will tell you how to change your diet, but it is another to work with someone who also brings such dedication and compassion to their work. Chelsea is a unique and special individual and anyone who has the privilege of working with her is extremely lucky. I know I am! In fact, I will be working with her the rest of the year in order to periodically check in, as well as her meal prep plan. Finally, I learned from Chelsea that it is not about “a diet.” It is about gradually changing your lifestyle and understanding the patterns in order to live a healthier and more simple life overall."
