Full Circle Approach
It's not just about what you eat and how much you move. We will also ensure we focus on your quality of sleep, your ability to manage stress, your self talk, prioritizing fresh air, and looking at other factors in your daily life that could be contributing to hurdles you may be facing.
See what Hope Wellness clients are saying:
"Working with Marisa is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my journey towards loving my body. She made it clear from the start that this was not going to be just another diet, we were going to work towards life-long changes, and she did not disappoint! I didn’t think it would be possible to eat more and still be in the best shape of my life. She is so knowledgeable and actually takes the time to explain in great detail why what she’s teaching works.
I’m no longer afraid of carbs or sweets, I have dessert after dinner, and when my body is telling me to rest and skip the gym, I don’t feel bad about. My body weight has fluctuated during the past 8 months working together, but my mindset towards my body has become more positive and forgiving. I’m confident, I feel sexy even when I have period bloat, and I’m not scared of food. Even my cravings have changed! Instead of craving fast foods and sweets, I crave her specialty sweet potato nachos and dark chocolate with pineapple for dessert. My entire mindset has shifted and for that, I am so grateful."
"Before I started working with Marisa I definitely thought the way to being slim or keeping the weight off was having as little amount of carbs (rice, bread, popcorn, all the best things) as possible. So all day I would cut back and cut back and then in the evening of course, those things were all I wanted! And I would beat myself up for “not being able to control myself” constantly fighting my body’s natural cravings which was so exhausting.
Since working with Mar and opening up to her I've slowly come to the realization that carbs are not the enemy and actually do us so much good. I am finding my food freedom. I feel so much more energized throughout the day and able to focus on the task at hand because I’m not constantly hungry or craving my next meal. I’m no where near perfect but my relationship with food and how I view it has increased immensely and I no longer feel at war with my body.”
