Whether I work with individuals or with organizations and groups, I only partner with people who are interested in lifelong health and well-being. My clients understand that a "quick fix" is not worth our time, energy, and money.
I see clients in-person in the Seattle area and work with adults from all over the world via telephone or over the internet. My client-centered approach is always based on the same principles: total acceptance and a deep appreciation for the people I have the privilege to work with. Because I have so much respect for my clients and their time, we only work on what really matters. No fluff.
You are worried about diabetes or you have just been diagnosed as prediabetic. You have been trying to live a healthy life and control your weight for many years but here you are, in trouble or close to being in trouble. You have come to the conclusion that it might be almost impossible for you to live a healthy life because:
- You are too busy;
- You love food too much;
- You are too tired;
- Being healthy is too complicated or boring.
You feel torn. On one end, you want to enjoy your life to the fullest and don't want to be on a diet or suffer at the gym - life is too short, right? Yet, on the other end, you realize that you can't make the most of life's good moments anymore, because you don't have the energy, you hurt, you are too heavy, you lack the stamina. And on top of it all, your blood glucose is to the roof and you are worried you might develop diabetes and all the life-threatening complications that come with it.
If only you could find a way to thrive and have fun while living a healthy life!

“everything in moderation” finally sunk in!
I started working with Stella at a time when I had been successfully counting calories for years, but knew that I was on the brink of stopping. Her idea of being able to be free of those confines (no matter how much comfort it gave me) was intriguing and refreshing. Working together, she helped me establish a framework for myself that I could use to make the healthiest decisions regarding food while still allowing me the indulgences that I craved. It took me a little while to put “everything in moderation” into practice effectively, but with her help, it finally sunk in.
Very much down to earth
Before working with Stella, I only ate ready-made processed food, with very little natural foods such as vegetables and fruit. Stella is warm, but at the same time, very much down to earth, and she does not waste time with B.S. We only worked together for a few weeks, but it was enough for me to completely change my eating habits. I feel less hungry, and that makes a big difference in the way my day goes by!
A very personalized approach
I had a great time working with Stella. She used a very personalized approach and focused on areas that I could realistically improve, but most importantly, that I was ready and motivated enough to work on. I had only a few pounds to lose to reach my weight goal, and exercising more and more just wouldn’t do it. She provided me with advises and tips about the way I eat and exercise that helped me reach my goal.
I always leave the session feeling “loved”
I always leave the session feeling “loved”, because that is the energy Stella puts out during the entire encounter: it doesn’t matter what you are going through, where you are and where you want to be, she is there, and she can “love” you for where you are, and for who you are. She is the person to go to if you are looking for deep, long-lasting changes.
I have lost 19 lbs and keep losing!
I've lost 19 lbs and keep losing. I went from size 16 to size 12! I cleaned up my wardrobe and gave away all the pants that were too big, it felt so good! I know I won’t need them anymore, because it’s natural to keep the weight off now, I don’t have to work hard for it!
Many parents, as they see their teens getting ready for college, are worried about their youth's ability to properly feed themselves or rest once they fly on their own. I can relate! I have 3 teenagers myself and eating nutritious foods and going to bed early is not necessarily their number one concern.
I am very passionate about showing young adults different ways they can establish healthy self-care habits in order to improve physical and intellectual performance, while at the same time enjoying the busy social life they thrive for. Eating healthy, being active, reducing stress, sleeping well and enough, but also developing a healthy relationship with their own body and appearance are all key to general well-being and it is never too early to learn the most effective techniques and strategies.

Organizations & Groups
Wellness Centers • Gyms • Studios
Do you provide strength training, yoga or fitness classes, physical therapy, acupuncture services, or massage? Did you know that over 30% of you clients have prediabetes, even though only 1 out 10 knows it? They would most likely appreciate extra guidance on how to reverse their condition naturally, through lifestyle changes and weight loss. I will partner with you to offer classes, workshops, and group coaching to provide your clients the support they need to be well and stay that way.
Companies • Non-Profits
If you truly care about your employees, whether they are 10 or 10,000 in your organization, I will love to work with you. I partner with large companies who already have a wellness program in place but want to offer more custom-tailored benefits. I also work with small businesses and non-profits who don't have wellness benefits yet and want to take their first step. About 90% of people who have prediabetes don't know it. Creating awareness and providing help for Diabetes Prevention is critical for your company's long-term health.
Is offering the best amenities to your renters top priority for you? One of the top community amenities that influence rent prices is "wellness". Offering a fitness center or a pool is an amazing step toward fulfilling that need, but you can really set yourself apart at a very low cost by providing educational workshops and small-group health coaching.
Gives 100% in the work she does
Her passion and dedication to helping others reach their health & wellness goals are inspiring. Stella tackles challenges head on and uses them as an incredible opportunity for growth & development. She puts her best foot forward, and gives 100% in the work she does.
Passion and love for people's health
Health and wellness has more than one component and, as a gym owner, I know that finding and working with professionals in the industry that share the same commitment can be difficult. When I met Stella, I could tell immediately that she had a passion and love for people's health and wellness and I knew I wanted her as part of my team.
... all the extra things she does
Stella is very dedicated to our students and their learning. She wants them to have a good experience and is very organized and enthusiastic. Stella makes good use of the time, ensuring that her students enjoy not just the content area, but also being in class. We are really happy to have Stella teach with us and we appreciate how seriously she takes her teaching and all the extra things she does.
Such a gift...
As Stella was teaching us how we could befriend our bodies, the entire group began to open like a flower that has found a refreshing stream nearby. Such a gift—to find community and kindness as we work to bring healthy patterns to our lives.
creativity in her approach to finding a solution
We got a glimpse of her personal struggle with sleeping well and the creativity in her approach to finding a solution. And she helped us realize that having a good night sleeps is not only important but is also within everybody’s reach, even if getting there may be outside their comfort zone.
