Welcome to my website! My name is Emma Hopkins Heilbronner. I a Boston-based health coach who loves going on walks, going out to eat, cooking, reading and CorePower yoga. I graduated from Colby College with a degree in psychology.
I have gone through my own journey with how I approach health. Like many, I used to exercise and keep track of my calories. Now, I have come to a place where I am eating foods guided by nutrition and satisfaction; otherwise known as Intuitive Eating. My aim is to help my clients achieve peace with food and get to a place where they feel confident in their skin, and appreciate themselves for the amazing people that they are.
My undergraduate degree is in psychology, and I am a certified health & wellness coach through Emory University's Continuing Education Program, approved by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC). In getting my certification, I studied health-related topics such as:
Diabetes and heart health
Exercise and movement
I am also in-training to become an Intuitive Eating Counselor. Intuitive Eating is guided by 10 principles which I work with clients to implement at their own pace: Reject the Diet Mentality. Honor Your Hunger. Make Peace with Food. Challenge the Food Police. Discover the Satisfaction Factor. Feel Your Fullness. Cope with Your Emotions with Kindness. Respect Your Body. Movement- Feel the Difference. Gentle Nutrition.
I decided to become a health coach because it is my calling to help other people reject diet culture and learn how to live a life with so much more freedom and mind space. Close family members of mine have suffered from eating disorders and poor body image, so I have seen firsthand how achieving a happy and healthy life can be so incredibly difficult, even with so much information at our fingertips.
I would love nothing more than to help you discover all that comes with a life of food freedom.
