Hi there! My name is Corinne.
I’m here to help you end your fight with food once and for all—and learn the value of self-love and self-acceptance.
Because it’s only through self-love that you can say goodbye to dieting forever and experience real confidence. And, it’s only through self-love that you can find your perfect partner. I’ve struggled with both issues—and I’ve conquered both issues. And today, I’m completely dedicated to helping women like you live a healthier, happier life.
I’m an experienced wellness coach and dating expert.
The concept of self-love, and how it folds into wellness and quality of life, isn’t just something I believe in, it’s something I’ve studied and gained vast experience in. I’m a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s degree in nutrition.
I’ve spent the better part of my career as a wellness coach and dating expert. I’ve studied the complex relationship between food, body image and love—and I’ve helped hundreds of women stop battling food—and their own self-worth—and learn to form a healthy relationship with food.
And, I’ve helped women bridge the gap between their relationship with themselves and their romantic relationship with others.
You don’t need diets to lose weight. And you don’t need drama to find your partner.
My programs are exclusively targeted to women who want to feel lighter, confident and secure in their own body and life. I’m the creator of two online programs that are designed to transform your life.
The first one, Ditch the Diet. Get MORE. is an online training program for women who want to change the way they eat, and who are tired of feeling like they’re not good enough, pretty enough, or thin enough. This program is for you if you’ve struggled with food and body-image issues, emotional mindless eating, and yo-yo dieting. I can help you get back on track without a diet—I mean it. It all starts with you—your relationship with yourself, your love for yourself and how you view and interact with food and your body.
Looking for romance? Dating is a lot of work, but you aren’t alone. My Single & Sane course explores your roadblocks in dating and love. I combine my expertise as a successful matchmaker turned dating coach with real-world advice and heartfelt insight to help you remove personal roadblocks to romance. This course will help you discover who and what you’re looking for—and give you the boost in self-worth and confidence to go after it!
I don’t just teach it. I’ve been there.
My relationship with my body and food took an unhealthy turn in my early school years. From braces and pimples to later counting calories in high school, I related getting thinner with being good enough. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Under-eating, over-exercising and obsessing over my food intake kicked off a long journey of social anxiety, dieting issues and health problems. My days were focused on calorie-counting, eating a barebones diet of lettuce and grapes and exercising relentlessly to make sure I burned at least 700 calories a day.
And these issues were related to one thing at the core: my relationship with food and my body.
It wasn’t until college that I had a wakeup call. My mother and grandmother were in tears, concerned over my health (and my protruding collar bone). This reaction ignited a desire in me to change. My mom convinced me to sign up to see a Registered Dietitian when I was home on school break. While I was angry at the process—angry at myself, the Dietitian and terrified over what would happen when I started to eat right—I committed myself to change. And over the following months and years, I slowly added more and more foods back into my diet, one day at a time.
The thing that kept me going? The way I felt! Eating healthy foods, and stopping my habit of obsessively counting calories allowed me to feel good in my body. I learned to approach my body—and myself—with love rather than hate. I formed new habits and started to think less about what the scale read and more about how I felt physically and emotionally. It was this personal journey that led me to study nutrition and wellness coaching, determined to help other women find balance.
Self-love is the doorway to romantic love.
There’s another side to my personal growth story, and this one falls in the romance category. Like so many of you, I’ve experienced devastating heartbreak. I’ve been in relationships where I’ve tried so hard to be the perfect person that I’ve lost my promise to myself along the way: my love for myself should always come first.
I fell for someone in my mid-twenties, someone who I thought was going to be the one I formed a life with. I tried to make us be that couple, and I became fixated on getting engaged. Instead, he abruptly broke up with me and turned my world upside down.
This kicked off an entirely new journey for me, one where I moved back into my parents’ house on the verge of turning 30; where I eventually embraced life on my own; where I completely re-evaluated what I needed and wanted. I took the steps forward to putting myself first.
I know how gut-wrenching it can be to have promises broken and to have dreams crushed. But I also know the triumph that can come from learning to be on your own and forming a deeper connection to your wants, needs and frankly, your own company. Heartbreak gave me the courage to change the way I date. I swapped expectations for curiosity. I chose fun over stress.
And now? I’m married to someone who values me for me. And I’ve never been happier in love and in my body. And I want to help you do the same.
Are you ready to get what you deserve out of life, love and health?
If I can do it, you can do it, too. It all starts with learning to like yourself.
