Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve tried everything; nothing works. How will this work be different?
Counting calories is not inspiring, neither is dogma or guilt. Feeling great IS inspiring. I’ll help you figure out what makes you feel good, and then how to keep making inspired choices. We'll transform "self-discipline" into self-love, and you'll be amazed at what you can create.
What if my doctor told me there's nothing I can do?
I've heard this one way too many times. "I just have to live with this, it’s not that bad." Your doctor may have told you that what you eat will not affect your condition, and the only solution is to take this or that drug for the rest of your life. That’s not the whole story. Everyone deserves to feel good, and often times drugs come with yucky side-effects. You don’t have to live with this forever. There are simple changes you can make to feel so much better.
Counseling is so expensive! How much do you charge?
Simply put, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While working with me, you’ll learn how to feed and care for yourself, and this will save you money in three ways:
You’ll spend less on restaurants and fast food because you will cook for yourself, and shop more efficiently.
You’ll spend less on vitamins, supplements and weight-loss programs, because you’ll only take supplements that you really need, and weight-loss will happen naturally.
You’ll save on medical expenses down the road. Improved nutrition can prevent colds and flus this season, and help you avoid expensive procedures years from now.
What do you call the work you do for women?
Technically, I'm a Health Coach, certified by the AADP. I really like the title "Creative Health and Business Coach" because my work is about so much more than physical wellbeing. I'm sure you've experienced how you're more productive when you are happy, happier when you're healthier and healthier when you're more productive. Let’s work a little alchemy, and get you living your greatest life. Learn more about me on my bio page.
What's a Jam Session?
We'll meet for 90 minutes, either at my office or over the phone. We'll go over your health history, clarify your main health concerns and goals and then create a rocking plan for creating your ideal life. We'll talk about food, movement, self-love and relationships. You'll come away with a clear understanding of your own welling and a distinct series of action steps to transform your life-- starting today! Learn more about Jam Sessions and schedule yours today.
How do I know if my constipation, weight gain, anxiety etc., are related to nutrition?
The food you eat is digested into absorbable molecules, and those molecules help power every process in the human body. Because of this, improving your nutrition can improve almost every health complaint. Examples of issues improved by nutrition are: acne, anxiety, asthma, ADHD, brain-fog, depression, diarrhea, ezcema, memory loss, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, food intolerances, auto-immune disorders, sleeplessness, low energy, weight imbalances, immune system function, fertility, body image, thyroid disorders, and many more. If you are wondering if your health complaints can be improved by improving your diet and lifestyle, get in touch with me.
How much effort will it be for me to change my habits?
Obviously transforming your life isn't simple, otherwise you already would have done it, and you wouldn't be scouring the web looking for solutions. However, there lots of ways to make change easier and less intimidating. I have helped many people transform their lives, and I will help you as well. If you're ready to step up and resume creating your own life, schedule your complimentary Discovery Session today.

Are there any risks to working with a Creative Health and Business Coach like Lily?
This work is inherently safe. We will make small, sustainable changes to your diet and lifestyle that will build up to your optimal wellbeing.
