As the owner and operator of Whole Self Care, I am passionate about helping you truly care for your WHOLE self from the inside out, taking a holistic approach to nutrition and self-care. My goal is to help you move away from restrictive diets, “quick fix” (non-) solutions, and feeling fear and shame around eating & health. I look at all factors likely affecting your health, helping you work with your body instead of against it. I believe a peaceful and grace-filled relationship with food and movement is possible, and I would love to support you on your journey!
Wishing you well,
"Whole and Free" Whole Health Coaching: Faith-based Health Coaching Services
Are you tired of dieting over and over again, resulting in the same results–weight regain, discouragement, and beating yourself up? Do you feel controlled by cravings, the number on the scale, and trying to change your body? Has God revealed to you that eating and body concerns are taking up too much brain space, moving you away from the abundant life He has for you?
Perhaps you are stressed out and exhausted, and taking care of yourself just feels too difficult? Are you a rock star at taking care of others, but struggle to take care of yourself? Do you feel guilty taking time to care for your needs? Does it all just feel too overwhelming and you don’t know where to start?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is hope. There is a better way.
Imagine being able to eat and care for your body from a place of grace—not rules, fear, condemnation, and guilt. God desires for us to live a free and whole life. When we surrender to Him, and the way He created our bodies, faith and trust become the driving force of caring for ourselves. As we enhance attunement with our bodies’ cues, and honor our needs, we decrease the chance of rebound overeating and feeling enslaved to cravings. As we work through reframing unhelpful thoughts and beliefs regarding food and health, we are more likely to seek balance and find enjoyment along the way.
Dana has years of experience helping clients care for their WHOLE selves from a place of freedom, attunement, and grace; offering compassion and a safe place along the way. Her passion comes from the call God placed on her life, inspired by her own personal experiences and the experiences of those she’s had the honor to walk beside on their journeys.

Dana has shown me the importance of setting smaller goals and looking at the bigger picture. It is more than just losing weight. I can move better, feel better, learn better eating habits. I have learned that weighing myself continually promotes discouragement and that isn’t a good thing. Dana has walked with me through a journey of stomach issues and helped me realize that a lack of stomach acid creates acid reflux, and by changing a few things I was taking, the reflux totally went away.
Through our work together, I feel confident in trusting my body and that it knows what it is doing and how to take care of me. I am able to enjoy food and can see its nutritional and soul-nourishing value rather than something to fear. I have continued to use intuitive eating every day to help guide me in the food choices that I feel are right for me. In addition to this I have also felt validated in any thoughts and fears that I have, making them much easier to accept and work through.
I learned to give myself grace. Not everyday will be perfect on your health journey but start everyday fresh and make better choices.
Working with Dana has really changed my life for the better. She helped me find happiness in the world around me rather than fixating on food and my weight.
Dana is compassionate, gentle, and patient. She is a great listener and supports a view of food that takes care of the whole individual. Dana offers a unique service to include a positive relationship with nutrition and movement.
