About me

Hi, friend! My Name is Amparo 🌸

I’m a licensed clinical mental health counselor (with over 20 years of experience) and a health & mindset Clini-Coach©️. I’m originally from Raleigh, NC, and now live in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC with my husband and school-aged kiddo. 

I struggled with over 20 years of yo-yo dieting, frustration with my body, and searching for “the magic pill” to end my complicated relationship with food and my body.

I also found it difficult to find resources for a person of color or from other marginalized communities; the internet seemed full of health coaches that didn’t look like me, which was a little discouraging when I went looking for support.

I worked with my own health coaches to heal my relationship with food and my body and it was a game changer for me (shout out to Becca and Liz!). And now I’m paying it forward by helping others who are on their journey to their best selves!
