“The last 8 weeks has been life changing. As a business owner you get consumed in life. Being able to take a step back and focus on who I am and what I want and how I want to be for the rest of my life, and take the time to do that is important.
Learning about self-care, the importance of sleep and being prepared with healthy food are so key. I also started to work on delegating more to my team in my business which has given me extra time to dedicate to myself. I’ve also learned how to take time to listen to my body, which has helped be become aware of my self-sabotaging mindset.
Awareness and taking the time to slow down and listen to my body has allowed me to feel the hunger signals my body is giving me. As well I am more aware of how I feel after eating certain foods or doing certain exercise and if it feels good or not. I realize I am not my ego, which has given me more confidence with the body I live in.
I highly recommend this program and the support and accountability provided will help you make really great changes in your health journey, especially with your challenges keeping you stuck. “
Amber helped me understand the “whys” of my patterns and from there helped my introduce strategies to break these cycles. For the first time in my life I do not feel consumed with thoughts of food. I feel comfortable and confident in my own skin. My life is balanced and no longer about extremes.
To my surprise, my journey with Amber went much deeper than my relationship with food. I had no idea that I wasn’t showing up for myself in life. I have learned how to make myself a priority and easily set boundaries without guilt.
Amber is passionate, easy to talk to and has always made me feel safe and not judged. I am extremely grateful for all she has taught me. She has given me back my freedom and a new perspective on life.
Thank you Amber!”
Right from the start, there was something about our first initial 30 minute conversation that resonated with me. I have to admit there was a part of me that was a little hesitant to commit because I have tried so many other meal plans, fitness programs, and “30 day challenges”, none of which seemed to help me. Following our first initial 30 minute conversation, I think I even told you that I needed a little more time to think about it, as I couldn’t understand how “this program” could be any different from any other one that I had tried before. You had agreed to follow up in about a months’ time, and I am so grateful that you did. I remember during our follow up conversation feeling so overwhelmed with emotion because deep down I knew I needed a change. I just had no idea what that change was.
The support has been amazing in so many different ways.
I had no idea how horrible of a relationship I had with food, but I also had no idea how horrible of a relationship I had with myself.
About 4 years ago I entered a fitness competition. I was in the best shape of my life… Or so I thought. I looked amazing, however inside I had developed extreme criticism of myself as well as a show mentality that affected me, my hormones, and my food choices each and every single day thereafter. As anyone who has competed before knows, that image does not last long as your body is put to extreme tests and cannot usually stay in that condition for long. Eventually you start to put weight back on. PostComp, the weight started to pile on, and my frustrations grew. I became a binge eater. I was in this vicious diet/binge eating cycle consisting of supplement consumption, and food restrictions. Not only that, but I had created this hateful, hurtful, disrespectful relationship with myself. The worst part, was that I had no idea that I was living my life in this neglectful, hurtful, show mentality way. I was not living my life to the fullest, I was merely existing. I truly had lost myself, and was a very unhappy person. Not only that, but I found myself constantly comparing myself to other people.
Fast forward to now, with your guidance I have developed this amazing relationship with myself that allows me to enjoy food without restriction. My digestion is amazing. Bloating is now minimal. I understand and know what foods my body loves, and what foods it does not prefer. I now enjoy a lot of the foods that I was restricted to eating while on a competition diet, and had completely cut out from my diet.
Working with you has been amazing! I feel like this burden has been lifted off my shoulders, because I am no longer thinking all day long about what I should and shouldn’t be eating.
Your support has been truly amazing. I had no idea how much my “show” mentality was affecting me every single day. Not only was it affecting my physical appearance, but it was wreaking havoc on both my emotional and digestive system as well. And to make matters worse, I became so critical, judgmental, hateful towards myself. I was stuck in this rut of feeling unworthy, and had become so disconnected with myself and the “little girl” inside that I was not living my life. I was merely existing.
The support has impacted me in so many different aspects of my life, not only with my relationship with food, but with my relationship with friends, family, and fiancé. There is this huge feeling of freedom that has been created because I have broken down the barriers that I had set for myself. It is so empowering to finally honor myself, and stand in my truth.
I have made so many changes. The biggest of all would be making time for myself. Through your coaching I have experienced how incredibly important self-care is and how much it benefits and influences every aspect of our day to day lives.
Not only am I eating better, but I am so much happier. I feel more compelled to reach for a healthy snack out of impulse, rather than out of restriction. I have cut out certain foods that I know seem to agitate my body. At first it seemed uncomfortable because it meant I needed to find replacements for those items. One item that I have cut out from my diet is dairy. Ice Cream used to be my weakness, and now I no longer crave it.
One of the biggest take homes I have received through your support is the appreciation of myself, my body, and everything that I am capable of.
Amber, You are such an inspiration to women of all ages.
I would encourage anyone feeling “stuck” in any aspect of their life, to reach out to Amber and have that initial conversation, because I truly believe you will benefit in more ways than you ever could think possible. And to those fellow entrepreneurs, who work endless hours, this program is so worth the time! Self-Care is so important! And after all, the best investment you can make is in yourself.”
Because Amber lived this, her knowledge and relatability is extensive and it really works. Her support was priceless and if I messed up I just got back on track with no judgement. One of the best things of this year was going through the stuff, past, present and future, what was holding me back, what wasn’t, why I wasn’t healthy. And that is a whole lot of mental stuff and that is the absolute diamond of this whole year. I can’t thank you enough for the way your process works. This support is unlike any other because it actually addressed the mindset and what we do on a daily basis. This program is life changing. I’m so grateful that I crossed paths with Amber.”

I had stopped worrying about weight when I realized after listening to your podcast that health is most important and when the body gets into alignment the body will begin to release weight. I got on the scale yesterday and I’m down 3 pounds. I know this is coming from my body (kidneys especially) beginning to heal.
I wrote all this to tell you that if it were not for your podcast I would have just accepted what a medical doctor told me and lived with it. Weekly I listen your Sundays podcast at least twice during my week while working. Your knowledge is priceless. Thank you for doing what you do. When I say it changes lives, it literally does because it’s changing mine! “
Not only has working with Amber made an incredible difference for my son, it has also prompted healthy changes for our entire family. Today, if it’s not “Amber Approved”, it doesn’t go in the shopping cart!
Amber, we cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
After a big move to a new country, I felt lost and depressed. Amber helped me pull myself out of the hole and take on healthy self-care practices that created a positive and powerful mindset.
She helped me realize that my relationship with food was not the only thing I needed support with. Wanting to people-please and never standing up for myself were the root causes of my eating disorders and my feelings of despair. I never felt good enough or lovable and I always attracted situations that seemed to prove that to me. It created a ripple effect, where it seemed that I would never be able to truly find myself and be happy.
Fast-forward 6 months, I have switched career paths and am on my way to making my passion my career. I am so excited for everything the universe has in store for me and I am at peace with who I am. I no longer struggle to set boundaries with people or make myself a priority. I surround myself with people, who support my goals and who love me for who I am. It is a feeling of freedom and endless opportunities.
Amber created a safe space for me, where I could share my struggles with food and my feelings of not being good enough. She provided me with plenty of tools to take care of myself mentally, physically and emotionally and was there along the way to cheer me on for every little step I took to free myself from my self-sabotaging habits.
Of course I still have bad days, but I have managed to mostly move away from using food to calm my anxiety. I also don’t put myself down for having an off day. It is all part of the journey. Being more in tune with my body allows me to give her what she needs at any given moment and truly allow for self-care as well as taking enough time for myself to slow down if I need to.
Last but not least, I was suffering from hypothalamic amenorrhea for 2 years and I finally have my period back, which was also one of my goals. Thank you for all your coaching and support, Amber. I couldn’t be more grateful. “
sleeping, fatigued, depressed, disgusted with my body, completely out of touch with myself and my body. On top of this, I was completely obsessed with food and I was binging several times per week. I spent all my free time hiding from the world, obsessing about food, numbing myself with binging and feeling disgusted with myself.
Over the last few months, Amber helped me to rebuild a new identity which can be characterized by confidence, positivity, energy, openness, love and understanding towards herself and her body. Never-ever had I thought I would experience not having any food cravings – yet this is my reality now! Of course, I struggle in stressful periods, and I even fail occasionally. And Amber is so wonderful in helping me understand, love and accept myself during the entire journey, even when I struggle or when I actually succumb to emotional eating. I cannot imagine going back to those self-sabotaging and self-hating practices and I wish the same to everyone! If you struggle with similar challenges, go ahead and book a consult with Amber. I am sure you will enjoy working with her, as she is incredibly compassionate, encouraging, helpful, and just lovely. Life is so beautiful when you open up to it!
Thank you so much for all of your support! I am really excited about working together in the months to come!”
This episode was especially good. Get out your pen and paper! You will want to take notes…”
We can’t and I know that now. I schedule a massage ?once every 2 weeks, drink Tulsi Tea️ to relax at nights and have incorporated many other things to boost my self-care.
Self-care: best thing EVER! “
A few days later I checked out her website. As I was reading her personal story, I actually started to cry! I honestly didn’t think that anyone could relate to what I was going through; I had felt so alone before. But hearing her story was like looking in a mirror. For the first time ever, I felt like maybe, just maybe, I could get a handle on things. So I started seeing her. Amber started out by helping me learn to forgive myself, to realize that I’m only human and that it’s ok to not be perfect! She also helped me start eating foods to nourish my body, and in doing this, my binging started to happen less and less frequently!
It was not an easy road at first; when I started to not turn to food to deal with my emotions, I had to actually deal with my emotions! And that was very overwhelming at first. Amber was so amazing at helping me through this. She is so easy to talk to, and I left every session with her feeling positive, refreshed, and excited to keep moving forward. She also taught me some great coping tools that I am still putting into practice every day. 3 months after meeting Amber, I still have work to do. But when I look in the mirror, I like what I see. I’m starting to love myself. I’m “feeling my feelings” for the first time, and in doing that, I am really figuring out who I am. I feel like there is an entire world of happiness and opportunity for me that I didn’t think was ever in my grasp. I honestly can say I would not be here without Amber. I feel like she saved me – well actually, she showed me how to save myself! Everyone’s story is different and everyone needs a personalized approach. But that’s why Amber is great – she’s very intuitive and has an ability to connect with people on their level. She is absolutely doing what she was put on this planet to do, and she came into my life when I needed her the most. My mom – as always – was right.”

Your story was heart felt and touching and so many of us women can really relate to the pressures that come with trying so hard to fit in and to be “perfect”. You shared such valuable and tangible information with tips and strategies for healthy eating that can be easily implemented into daily living without feeling like we need to always be on guard or that we have to give up everything to eat healthy.
I really appreciate your ability to be flexible when my other speaker went over time. You were able to deliver a wonderful message about taking care of ourselves without missing a beat when your timing was shorted by 10 minutes.
I especially loved the seasonal holiday tips that helped put us all at ease being around an abundance of treats and goodies at Christmas time.
I look forward to having you back some time at another one of my events and to staying in touch.
Take good care and thank you again so very much!!”
MELANIE – URBAN GIRLFRIENDS GETAWAY
I filled out my paperwork before my appointment with Amber, and before we even discussed much she suggested they may be some digestive and intestinal imbalances going on with the kids, in particular with Candida.
I won’t lie, the diet recommendations were hard to follow at first, really hard. But I followed her instructions to a T, and within 10 days my kids’ behavior was back to normal and no more tummy aches. My daughter also stopped having nightmares and they each gained 2 pounds on their skinny little bodies in the first 2 weeks. This was an accomplishment for us! I am proud to refer Amber to friends, clients and colleagues, and will continue to do so. There is no greater gift to a parent than healthy and happy kids.”
First thing she convinced me that eating a healthy breakfast every day was critical to ensure I wasn’t starving my body. She provided me with healthy options over refined foods, and lots of recipes and quick and easy tasty on-the-go snacks. Amber also convinced me to try gluten-free, dairy-free and nutrient-rich alternatives to sugar, and to my surprise, I found myself enjoying these foods as well.
Despite the fact that I am still very busy, I am feeling energetic and well-rested, all systems are functioning well and I am healthy and happy to be taking the time to eat properly and take care of myself. I am impressed with Amber’s knowledge and expertise in the field of nutrition and her ability to encourage and motivate people like me. Thank you Amber for helping me feel young and healthy again! I will be pleased to refer others to you for their health’s sake.”
I am so glad I came to you for help. Your understanding of how the body responds to different foods, and how problems can be addressed with natural means including supplements, has resulted in dramatic changes.
Thank you for sending me for the most extensive blood work I have ever had – blood work my own doctor refused to do – so that we could learn what was going on with hormones, stress levels, energy levels, and address them.
Thanks to the dietary changes and supplements you recommended, I am off anti-depressants and sleeping pills, and I have better moods, better sleep, and more energy. I cannot thank you enough for your advice, encouragement, and your extensive knowledge of the relationship between nutrients in foods and supplements and my specific health issues. You have been a better doctor to me than my GP has ever been.
I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as I am a huge believer now in what you do. I have the results to prove it.
You are terrific!”
After Amber helped me to identify I had some digestive imbalances including Candida we got to work right away to balance my digestion. After about 2 months all of my digestive pains and bloating had completely disappeared. My skin and rosacea cleared and I no longer felt uncomfortable in my own skin.
One of the biggest surprises was going for a bone scan to see an old injury, not only to see it had healed, but actually that it had gotten stronger, rather than weaker like the doctor said it would.
I have been able to add in lots of healthy foods to keep my satisfied and am so thankful that I had Amber to help me on this journey. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants the support and answers you have been looking for, but that no one else has been able to give you. She is truly an expert in her field!”
I swear after a week I was already feeling so much better. My digestive discomforts had gone away and I was able to easily identify which foods bothered me, and stay away from them. Now are 3 months into our program and I’ve lost over 15 pounds, my waist has gone down over 6 inches and all of my clothes are almost to the point of fitting too large.
Amber really knows how to address all the different layers of the body including my energy levels, digestive balance, cravings and which foods best support my body. I also really enjoyed one of her bonus options of her program including a grocery store trip which helped me to really identify reading labels and finding hidden sugar.
I highly recommend Amber as she really is very knowledged in her field and can provide instant results to those she works with because she deeply understands what they are dealing with.
Thank you Amber for helping to get me to optimal health.”
After eliminating refined sugars, eating more foods to boost my energy and balancing my digestion, I have been feeling amazing ever since. I feel like the tools Amber has given to me will be with me for life, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to reach higher energy levels and be free of their annoying cravings. Thanks Amber! “
After about 6 months of working with Amber, I had gotten my binging to a minimum and my cravings for sugar were lessening. Now, in my second 6 months with Amber, I have completely stopped binging, no longer crave sugar or fast food and am feeling freedom from my old habits.
She has also helped me to identify why my energy is so low and now we are working on balancing that. I feel so confident in Amber’s expertise and am a completely different person because of it. Amber I really owe you my life as the one I was living was full of suffering, and now it’s full of happiness.
For anyone who is suffering with binge eating or body image struggles, I highly recommend you reach out to Amber because she understands what she is going through since she went through it as well. I think that gives her a huge edge in understanding her clients.”
Amber took us at a mindful pace and slowly started to help us to change the ingredients in our cupboards to healthier ones. We found going grocery shopping with her to also be very useful as we really learned how to read labels.
Amber also had recipes for everything we needed with healthier ingredients so we didn’t and don’t feel deprived at all with the transition to healthier eating. Our energy is better and I’ve lost over 15 pounds and still counting.
We now have made the healthy lifestyle changes we’ve wanted to for ages and know we will never go back to our old ways. Thanks for your help Amber!”
JIM & DAWN
I started to feel relief right away and instantly my stomach was feeling better. I wasn’t getting bloated anymore, which was one of my biggest frustrations.
My moods also improved, and so did my energy. I am so happy I found Amber, she really helped me to eliminate my symptoms so I could be happier with my body.”
Amber was able to help me identify that I was struggling with Candida which can affect the mind and the body. She also was able to help coach me through my emotional eating struggles and help me to make more mindful choices so I could take better care of myself.
After eliminating the Candida I felt so much better, my brain fog is gone, I have better mental clarity and my mood is light and happy. I am no longer bloated and am no longer craving sugar either.
I no longer use food to cope with my emotions and this is all thanks to Amber. I feel a new freedom I haven’t felt in a long time and would highly recommend Amber to help support you with your food journey.”
Amber helped me to identify this and get me off of aspartame. She also helped to support me to balance my body so I could get off of my depression and high cholesterol medications by my doctors call. It feels great to be prescription free and no longer have any cravings for aspartame products.
Thank you Amber for helping me to get healthier so I can lead a better life.”
I wanted to get more into working out but was concerned because of my weight. Upon sitting down with Amber at our first assessment I felt like I was in the right place. Because she shared her personal story about her own past struggles of food addiction, I was instantly able to relate and trust her. I finally had a feeling of hope that someone would be able to help me.
She has been supporting me to clean up my eating, and become aware of why I want to emotionally eat instead of deal with my emotions. I’ve already lost over 30 pounds, have better energy, improved digestion and am finding my workouts easier every week.
I am now fitting into clothing sizes I have never been able to wear, and feel like for the first time in my life I won’t fall back into old habits and gain all of the weight back. I am excited to keep working with Amber as her coaching has been a huge reason for my continued success, without it I don’t know if I would still be moving forward and for that I thank you.
For anyone dealing with food addiction or emotional eating, Amber is your girl, she knows what you are dealing with and I guarantee she can help you. Don’t wait any longer, get started with freedom from food now!”
After being assessed by Amber we started to do the work to clean up my eating. We eliminated foods that my body wasn’t responding well too, and cleared up my digestive issues. I am happy to share, that after 10 years, the weight is started to drop off, I have lost over 15 pounds and am still going. I will continue to work with Amber until I see all the weight come off as I am not sure I would have been able to lose the weight without her.
If you are feeling stuck with your weight I highly recommend coming to see Amber as she is really an expert with helping to figure out WHY nothing is changing. She won’t stop until she helps you to figure it out. Thanks Amber, excited to continue to work with you.”
We really found it valuable to try new foods, learn how to read labels while grocery shopping and we have lost the weight we wanted with Amber. We now have great tools to use for the rest of our lives and are very thankful to have met Amber.”
RYAN & LAURA
We have lost almost all of the weight we’ve wanted to lose, and now have completely changed the way we eat. Our energy is higher, our cravings are gone and we no longer have any tummy issues. Thanks Amber for equipping us with the education and tools that we needed to make healthy lifestyle changes, lose weight and feel more confident.”
JORDAN & KAYLA
I now am able to make chilli, stir-fry, salads and dressings, cook eggs, pie, apple crisp and more. I now prep all of my food ahead of time and am eating healthy and feeling satisfied all the time. Amber also has great recipes that are delicious and easy to make.”
The programs that you provide for your clients makes the change to better eating comfortable and achievable. What I really enjoyed about your options is that you were able to taylor your program to my personal situation. You are able to help a person who has not ever address their dietary needs right up to someone who is constantly working on a clean eating. As your support ranged from a personal shopping trip to phone calls and or emails it was easy to get on the right track to feeling better.
I feel that these program quailites are why your clients are successful! I will not, and do not hesitate to talk openly about your services and what makes them so unique. Your clients are left feeling better, stronger and over all well. Thank you for taking the time to work with me in the past few months so that I may acheive optimal health!
As health and nutrition are ever changing I will not hesitate to stop by again for a tune up and progress update in the future. I am extremly happy that I can referr friends, family, co-workers, and clients to you!
With the Amber approved approach optimal health is achievable for anyone.”
You showed me that eating better is not boring; it is both healthy and interesting. Eating better is a matter of choice. I read labels, buy whole foods, and keep fresh fruit and vegetables around for nourishing snacks. I try to drink 2 liters of water every day.
I learned how gluten, dairy, refined sugar and alcohol negatively affect my body. You gave me lists of foods that fight heavy metals in the blood, foods that support my liver and foods that are anti-inflammatory. Green is good! Most foods on the lists are my favourites so eating more of them is easy. Apples, berries, cabbage, bananas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and avocadoes are readily available year around.
I love your 80/20 rule for eating healthy vs. less nourishing foods. Your compassion and understanding of human nature accepts that your clients will sometimes struggle to reach their goals. I came to see you feeling tired, bloated and brain-fogged. My diet was 20/80 so I had a lot to improve upon and you supported me throughout my journey.
When people say to me, “You are looking healthy, you’re looking good actually, and did you lose a few pounds?” I feel proud.
After four months working with you I am re-energized. My thinking is clearer and my sleeps are deeper. I feel much younger than the calendar says I am.
For all that you have done for me I say thank you.”
