Over the years I have personally struggled with weight management. I definitely understand how difficult it can be to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It took me some time, but I've found what works best for me: A combination of well-balanced eating (no diets), as well as exercise.
I strongly believe in the mind-body connection and that is why I have adopted a holistic approach to health and wellness.
My mission is to help change lives by integrating Mind, Body, and Life; bringing them into Balance.

Karla is phenomenal!! She has done wonders working with my mom (who is 82) and I wish we could work with her forever. I was trying to get my mom strong enough physically and mentally to actually go somewhere during the day so she could be around people rather than spending each day alone and Karla accomplished that. Karla encourages my mom to challenge herself while at the same time being caring and encouraging. In addition, she's very knowledgeable and from day 1, she walked in "with a plan" for my mom. Today is my mom's first day at our local YMCA, which provides a "community" of other seniors. I'm so grateful to Karla - her demeanor was perfect for us, she's kind, very knowledgeable, challenging, motivating and just a wonderful person. We feel lucky to have found her.
Karla was very professional. She listened and I’m sure will come up with a program that will work well for me. She gave me two doable tasks for the days before we meet again.
