TESTIMONIALS

WOW!!! I mean...wow.....Tonika and her team are the best. My daughter is a young CEO with a natural hair line, Curlanistas. Tonika coached and mentored my daughter and taught her how to style and properly care for natural hair. She also helped her with preparing for a speaking engagement. Can we say money well spent? She really helped Lexi with finding her voice and message for her speaking engagement. When it was time for her to speak at the event the crowd was blown away. If I could give 10 stars I would, they are simply the best..... CHECK HER OUT! IT'S WORTH IT!

Integrative Nutrition 

The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!

Crowding Out

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.

Tired of one-size-fits-all approaches to dieting?

 

Drained from toxic relationships?

 

Overwhelmed by stress at work? 

 

Fed up with those nagging cravings?

 

Want to feel great in your body?

 

Ready to accomplish your goals in a way that’s empowering and exciting?

My Approach​

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship(s) cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book. 

Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
