Improve your quality of life with the help of a life and health coach

Hi I’m Emy and the Life and Health Coach for Coral Gables Counseling Center.

Although the basis of my sessions is incorporating healthy eating and good nutrition into your life, it’s not only about the foods you eat. It’s also about building good relationships, and creating a life that you enjoy and want to show up for every day - key to achieving good health and mental well-being. The choices you make today can have a lasting, positive impact on your life.

At Coral Gables Counseling Center we provide a safe environment for you to examine your lifestyle choices. My holistic approach incorporates creating the mindset and identifying possible areas that may benefit from working with me, your Life and Health Coach.  

It’s no secret that surviving in today’s society can be stressful and chaotic. So how to make nutritious eating choices—as well as fit in daily exercise and relaxation—when you’re strapped for time and always on the move? How do you make changes in your lifestyle to create the quality of life you enjoy every day? I can help guide you there.

Weight loss for life – maintaining your "happy" weight

When dealing with issues of weight loss, we can agree that many of the options out there are next to impossible to maintain. Don’t fall victim to the latest trends. Many weight loss groups and diets have unrealistic expectations and unachievable results.


I take a more sustainable approach with my “non-diet” diet.  My approach is about eating in the real world. How do you deal with situations (such as holiday dinners or a work event buffet table) where menu choices are out of your control?  How do you make time in a stressful work environment to carve out time to sit and eat?

More often than not we tend not to listen to our body’s needs. You will learn how to trust your body and let it guide you to the foods choices that will best support your health without using individual meal plans, and calorie or point counting.

Take advantage of my unique, personal approach to my coaching sessions and call us today to schedule your “Path to Wellness” free consultation. Our staff will be happy to assist you.

And Who Am I?

Having worked in the legal industry over 30 years and earning my Master in Business Administration while raising three children, I know first-hand how devastating years of a stressful work environment and the responsibility of raising a family can be on both the body and the mind.

Knowing I had to make some radical changes to improve my own health, I began my journey by changing my mindset from immediate gratification to get me through my stressful day, to looking at living my life through a more integrated desirable approach that made me feel great in body and mind in spite of my stressful work environment and years of personal neglect.

This journey took me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I became an expert in the art of balanced eating habits and exercise. This journey has provided the support I needed which has led to a continuous lifestyle change. I understand what your life feels like and the changes that may help.  My passion now is to work with others who want to do the same.
