Stay in the loop on all Happy Belly Happenings!
Hey! I’m Jess.
So happy you found me and welcome to Happy Belly!
I’m a clinical counselor turned 1:1 coach, specializing in mind-body coaching, mindfulness and motherhood. Along with obtaining my masters in social work and my clinical licensure, I also have certifications in nutrition and pre- & postnatal coaching.
I provide mind-body coaching which focuses on helping you improve your relationship with food, change eating behaviors, and learn sustainable ways to finally achieve your goals.
I also specialize in helping busy mamas take a break before they breakdown. This means teaching mindfulness, stress and time management techniques, and learning how to redefine the idea of balance. I’m a mom of 2 so I get it- there’s just not enough time in the day to diet, workout, get in some self-care and do ALL the things. But the reality is, there are small changes that you can make that lead to BIG results, and I can show you how.
While I love working in clinical settings and offering therapeutic interventions, I have found coaching allows me to reach more of you, to address ways that you have control to transform your own life, and to do more than just help you plant seeds and hope they grow.
I have Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Sociology, and a Masters in Social Work, all from the University of Georgia. I worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 8+ years before moving into the coaching space. Outside of Happy Belly Coaching I also authored and teach a Mindset Specialty course through Nutritional Coaching Institute, which is accredited through National Academy of Sports Medicine.
I’m a lover of sarcasm, whiskey, positivity and adventure. I thrive off of human connection and believe life is more fun when we are moving through it together. I live in Atlanta with my 2 babies, 2 puppies and my husband, who is the best human I know. I cuss a lot. I laugh more. I love big, and I’m here to help.
Please feel free to explore my website and learn more of what I’m all about. I hope you find something here that makes you laugh, or think or feel connected. And please don’t hesitate to reach out and say hi!
