Health Coaching

Health coaching is a partnership. It’s a compassionate and

non-judgemental relationship in which my clients have the opportunity to explore their values, strengths, and motivation, and to get clear about what’s really important in their lives. Through a variety of evidence based techniques and models (Transtheoretical Model of Change, Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Non-Violent Communication, etc.) I support my clients in getting the results they want. 


"... My work with Dara has helped me build a framework to create long lasting success and achieve my goals. I feel so empowered and encouraged to keep growing! "

I was pretty unfamiliar with Health Coaching when I first started my sessions with Dara, but now it honestly feels like an essential tool in my life. Ever since I can remember, I have been stuck in this loop of starting something, being diligent for short period of time and then going right back to the original patterns. My work with Dara has helped me create a framework to create long lasting success and achieve my goals. I feel so empowered and encouraged to keep growing!

Feeling stuck in a cycle that isn't serving you? Let me help. 

I’m here to offer you hope and let you know that you don’t have to go it alone. 

Hi! I’m Dara, and I’m a Functional Health and Wellness Coach. Welcome! 


Like you, I play many roles in life. Most importantly I’m a Mom to two awesome kiddos. I’m also a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a partner.


In my career, I’ve been an early childhood educator, worked for Functional Medicine practitioners, and created two successful businesses as a Therapeutic Personal Chef. 


I’m also a human who has struggled with health issues my whole life. 


I have suffered from autoimmune issues since the age of two. I saw all the doctors, tried every diet, and read all the books. With each new doctor, I would get my hopes up that it would finally be the solution to my health issues. I’d leave with a protocol, a list of supplements, prescriptions, and lots of advice. And within days I would feel overwhelmed and give up. I was in a continual cycle of feeling confused and ultimately alone on my health journey. 


That’s where I was for years. And if you’re there now, I know how desperately you want to make healthy changes in your life. I know what it’s like when you’re not sure where to start or how to incorporate new behaviors. Maybe you’re wanting to lose weight (been there!). Maybe your doctor is telling you that you need to eat healthier or lower your blood pressure (done that!). Maybe you just really want to get a night of great sleep and wake up feeling well rested (I see you new Moms!). Most of all, I imagine that, like me, you want to have more energy, more motivation, and to feel more present in your own life.  


I’m here to offer you hope and let you know that you don’t have to go it alone. 


And here’s the really exciting news: Wellness is so much more than just the food you eat or the exercise you get. Wellness is about the relationships in your life, your career, your mindset, and so many other aspects of life that often go unaddressed in traditional health models. When we start to address any one of these areas, everything else also starts to improve. 


If you’re ready to start your journey to wellness, call me today for your FREE 15 Minute Consultation. We’ll talk about where you’re at right now and where you want to be in the next 6 months. We’ll even do some coaching so you can get a taste of what to expect.
