Testimonial: Healing the Body with Food Lectures
This course was really helpful to guide me in making specific changes to my diet to live a healthier and more energized lifestyle! The lectures were short and sweet, not overwhelming with information. With each lecture, Marcelle provided worksheets to help think about what foods to eat, what different foods do for or to the body, and even meal and snack ideas. I found all of these very helpful.
One of the steps of this program is a four-day energy experiment which I found very enlightening. It was fun to plan the meals, shop for meals, make meals, and eat them too! I felt that four days is a good amount of time because it is relatively easy to commit to such a short time period, and there is potential to learn a lot about one’s body during that time. One takeaway for me is that I discovered animal and plant proteins play a huge role in my daily energy and they affect me differently at different times of the day. This is a game-changer for sure! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to live better. Before this course I was already eating primarily whole foods, now I have a better idea of how to utilize those whole foods to my advantage. I think if I had this course during the time when I was first moving away from processed foods it would have been super duper helpful in making me better informed to make that transition more quickly and effectively.
Certified Health & Life Coach
-Virtual & In-person (Portland)
I have a private Health and Life Coaching practice, specializing in habit change coaching method.
I am very passionate about my work and understand change can be difficult and uncertain. It is important to have a coach to not only hold you accountable but to offer you clarity in your own truth.
Growing up on Whidbey Island made me fall in love with the Pacific North West and the food it has to offer. Young, enthusiastic, and dedicated I became Chef De Cusine at a top French Bistro in Portland, Oregon.
At the age of 24 years old I was diagnosed with Lupus an autoimmune disease that was crippling at times. I worked my butt off and consumed a large cocktail of medication to keep my body in a functioning state. As the years went on I became mentally and physically drained. I felt numb to the world, only focusing on the work instead of my health, my relationships, and my life balance. I decided to listen to my intuition to change the course of my life by taking control of my overall wellness.
I am proud to say I am happier and healthier than I've been in years.
It is hard to know where, how, and when to start. I struggle with feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and exhausted with all the information available. I spent hours reading, researching, and experimenting. Finally figuring out what worked for me and now I want to help you figure out what will work for you!
I enjoy curating information and exercises that will provide my clients with valuable transformations.
Its Time To Take Action!
What I Specialize In
Positive Habit Change
“Patients [need] someone to know and understand their unique strengths, challenges, and desires—someone to walk with them through the demanding process of implementing new beliefs and behaviors in their lives—in a way that [promotes] their own health and healing at the pace for which they [are] ready. This person needed to be in a trusted relationship with the patient, to be readily and frequently available, to see the patient as the capable expert in his or her own life, to understand the nature of the change process, and to be able to hold the vision of greater health for and with the patient. This person was, and is, a [health coach].”

"When I first started this program I didn’t realize all the ways coaching would come to affect my day to day life. I’m happier, in better shape and have more balance. This program has been so incredible for me and I’m thrilled I got the opportunity to do it. She had a knowledge and passion for each session that made me feel very comfortable. She created a safe place for me to share honestly and grow. I know these will be life long changes."
Marcelle listened and asked intuitive questions before ever sharing ideas. Coaching was serious and fun all at the same time and I loved how she believed in me. It was a wonderful unexpected experience and I have already shared with many of my friends my progress!
It was great working with Marcelle! I learned a lot during our sessions and her guidance has helped me to start making better eating and exercise choices regularly. A very funny lady and a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend.
