Holistic Healing with Nicole
Holistic Healing encompasses all aspects of your life, bringing nourishment to your body, mind and spirit. I offer coaching and counseling to individuals and groups alike, as well community and workplace wellness workshops.
Are you looking to heal naturally and optimize your complete health and wellness? Desire to feel nourished and radiant, free from stress, anxiety and depression?
Stress, anxiety and depression don’t honor your true essence. Nor does feeling anything less than nourished and radiant in that amazing human body.
You want to make a change, but going on another “diet” is out of the question. And taking medication for your anxiety and depression is also not a desired option.
You’d love to learn a different approach. One where you find that balance - connecting mind, body and spirit.
You’re finally ready to gain a new perspective and approach to your eating habits, relationship with food and your overall life choices. What you need is a new approach to how you feed your body and your WHOLE life.
The absence of illness does not necessarily equate health.
Maybe you can’t figure out why you experience such discomfort after eating certain meals or foods. Maybe you don’t understand why you can’t just walk away from the sugar. Or…you may find yourself asking, where is the work life balance? Spending most of your days feeling depleted and dull, stressed and anxious.
I understand how it feels to be out of balance. And I also know that starting a “diet/lifestyle plan” or specific script can feel overwhelming and depriving - and it may not be right for you. For years I struggled with this. There were times when I looked pregnant after eating a bowl of cereal. I went to doctor after doctor and underwent test after test. It wasn’t until I met with a naturopath who offered me a new perspective and approach to my unique body and food habits that I was able to make a real change.
I’ve also struggled with the bigger life choices ~ feeling stuck, confused, unhappy, stressed out and anxious. Through the assistance of helpers and healers I was able to connect all the aspects of my life and find the right balance in everything, informing important choices I finally made! (Leaving my “career”, using plants and food as medicine, relocating my life, etc.)
My Nourished and Radiant Approach.
Coming from the social work profession I am keenly aware of all of the elements that have a direct impact on our physical body, as well as mental, emotional and spiritual.
As a Licensed Masters Social Worker and Certified Integrative Health Coach, I support you in achieving and maintaining long lasting balance - in mind, body and spirit.
Together we co-create goals focusing on feeling nourished while adding in the good stuff you need and desire. I help you in discovering your own unique answers and strategies. And we keep it simple. I provide an open ear and mind with specific tools and ideas tailored to you.
I know how changing life long patterns and habits can seem impossible, but I promise it’s not. It just takes curiosity, desire and a willingness to experiment, love yourself, and commit to being happy, healthy and balanced. Not a quick fix, but a relaxed, insightful, fun and meaningful approach.
Through this process you will:
Gain a deeper understanding of your own unique body
Learn simple tools to alleviate common complaints and symptoms
Increase your level of self-acceptance and self-love
Decrease your reliance on medications
Learn natural approaches to common mind, body and spirit challenges
Adopt a new lifestyle that’s easy to do and maintain
Create a balanced life
You’ll learn to gain insight into how your body works best and you’ll integrate new techniques and strategies to alleviate whatever issue you’re currently experiencing - including specific food, herb and lifestyle recommendations for these issues.
The result: A new, more connected and holistic view of your own unique self, a new way of thinking about food, and a balanced life - away from the deficit medicalized model and towards a view of creating abundance, nourishment and balance.
Nourished and balanced in all aspects of life with less stress, anxiety and depression.
"I love the way that Nicole approaches health and wellness. I was never someone for whom dieting did any good--on the contrary, it exacerbated my anxiety over food and caused a vicious cycle of denying and rewarding myself with food. Nicole helped me work through my hang ups around healthy eating and break old habits that allowed healthy eating to become natural and easy for me.
I have also worked with Nicole in a group setting and it was comforting to talk with other women who have dealt with and (continue to deal with) similar issues. It was also nice to get a variety of perspectives and examine the way that healthy eating can affect both our physical and emotional health." ~ KP, Brooklyn, NY
"I had been living in California and seeing a grief therapist for almost three years due to the loss of a sibling. She was a great therapist, and when I decided to move to New Orleans, my therapist did some research and made recommendations for new therapists in NOLA once I was situated. The moved proved to be extremely stressful and the living situation even more trying, so despite not having had found employment yet, I reached out to the recommended counselors in NOLA, one of which was Ms. Rochat (the other did not exist, divine directions!) Immediately upon talking to her, I felt she was my ‘next step’ towards my healing and was very happy to have been recommended to her. Because of my budget, the sessions aren’t as many as I’d like, but the ones that I have had have been extremely helpful but more than anything, have empowered me to move forward in the directions that I have needed to take. She asks the right questions, doesn’t tell you what to do, think or feel and is a great listener. She also has great resources to expand your horizons and experiences in whatever endeavor you may be going towards. She is extremely flexible in session format, and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future!” ~ HK, Atlanta, GA
