My journey:

Nourishing your body shouldn’t feel like swimming against the current on a daily basis, but it DOES to so many people. We live in a world where healthy living is a battle. We are bombarded with processed foods, heavy marketing and so many challenges that come with keeping you and your family healthy.

I wasn’t always obsessed about wellness. It was a slow learning process and I will never forget my first day in nutrition school that it dawned on me that if I am learning this information, I am going to have to make huge changes in my life and in myself to be able to truly walk my talk. Now 7 years later I have been through some huge growth spurts and transformations but I was not always this way! In college I enjoyed a Pepsi everyday, suffered terrible acne, and was a good 15 pounds overwight.

MY love for yoga, meditation and mindfulness lead me to nutrition.

Living a health conscious life is something that lights me up on every level.

I am a clinical and holistic health counselor and founder of NourishMint Wellness.  I started my practice in sunny San Diego, then in Coeur d’ Alene Idaho and most recently Bozeman! I love supporting people to live vibrant and healthy lives through nutrition, yoga, psychology and lifestyle to support overall balance within the body. I believe strongly  in the direct correlation between the quality of food you eat, and the way you feels physically and emotionally.

I know from personal experience that it is a challenging task of knowing how to eat to efficiently, fuel the body, and use food as medicine to create optimal health.I absolutely love teaching clients how to navigate scary food sensitivities or the intimidating health food store, prepare healthy meals, and ultimately nourish and support the body back into balance.

As an experienced clinical nutrition counselor, Emily has studied the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching to guide clients in individualized wellness plans. She provides one on one nutrition counseling, group counseling, corporate lectures, wellness retreats, private yoga and meditation, grocery store tours and educational programs and events.

Emily holds a B.S in Psychology, as Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist and is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I hope to inspire and teach my clients that same balance, joy for living, and overall healthy lifestyle.

Why did I want to join the Spring Family?

COLLABORATION! I love connecting with other practitioners, brainstorming on different client cases, and working together as a team. I also notice that my clients do 10 times better when they are working with a team, and I love to see the success!

My roles at spring include supporting clients to find the best diet and nutritional protocol to get them to reach their wellness goals. This includes dietary and lifestyle upgrades and a whole lot of mindfulness!

Why do I practice nutrition?

I know that food can heal. I have seen it countless times, and want to empower others to trust the process, and know that we have the tools we need right in front of us.

I want to support clients to feel the energy they were born to have, to find balance through conscious living, and to feel WELL every single day of their lives.

I believe:

  • That you deserve to wake up each day feeling well
  • In eating real food from nature, and not from a colorful package
  • That when you focus your attention on wellness and balance you can drastically change your life
  • Food should be fun and you can experience true freedom when it comes to food
  • Balance is key
  • Taking time to breathe each day is the best thing you can do for your health

Conditions I love to treat:

  • Fatigue
  • Acne
  • Headaches
  • Weight
  • Mindfulness
  • Eating habits
  • Low Energy
