Apart from working intensely and very personally one-on-one with her clients, she writes and is a motivational speaker. She wants everyone to know that change is possible and health is within our reach.
Fully engaged in every client’s journey, she counsels each client through their eating habits and emotional struggles. Her goal is to help them find their own individual path to a life of wellness through self-nourishment, conscious food and lifestyle choices. She encourages compassionate awareness in daily self-care habits and teaches her clients how to shift their behavioral patterns. Her approach to nutrition is an integration of functional medicine, nutrition psychology and emotional wellness. It is educational, upbeat and non-dogmatic.
She is both the Sherlock Holmes of health, to find the root cause of the symptoms, and the change motivator for each individual client to own their health and emotional balance.
Jeanette believes that food is both our medicine and our tool for optimal wellness. Even when it is a struggle to change our habits, she is dedicated to being there as a resource and inspiration through it all. People come to her looking for a new way to a healthy and balanced life. Some are seeking freedom from emotional eating. Some want to learn how to heal from illness and understand how to practice prevention and change living with “high risk” to living with “high awareness”.
“I hope for people to feel they learn how and why to eat differently so they can make their own choices, and achieve a complete shift in their life when working with me. It is a health and self-love revolution!”
Born and raised in Denmark, Jeanette came to NYC 25 years ago. Her move started her search for her own path for a new life. In 2004 she founded the Path for Life Self-Nourishment Center. As an ex-fashion-executive and being a woman living in a high-risk category for breast cancer, she knows about the importance and challenges of living a healthy and balanced life in a busy world. In 2001, after both her parents died of cancer 1 year apart, she decided it was time to follow her passion. She took the step to devote all her time and energy to help people learn, heal, and move through what keeps them from being healthy, – and the Path for Life 9-step System was born.
