About Me

Hello, my name is Barbara Leland and I live in Huntington Beach, California.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and studied over 100 dietary theories; from Ayurveda, Gluten-Free, and Paleo, to Raw, Vegan, and Macrobiotics, and all theories in between.

My teachers were the world’s top health and wellness experts including:

-Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

-David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center

-Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
-Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach
-Susan Blum, MD, MPH, assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine
-Mark Hyman, MD, founder of The UltraWellness Center
-Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating
-David Wolfe, raw food leader and nutrition expert
-Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, professor at New York University’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
-Mark Bittman, food writer for the New York Times and bestselling author
-Joel Fuhrman, MD, family physician and leading expert on nutritional healing
and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with clients like you to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.

With my training, I can follow my passion to help people come to a place in their lives where they have every opportunity to live the life they want, in a healthy and happy fashion, however that works for them. I work with clients to create a completely personalized “road map to your goals” that suits each person’s unique personality, lifestyle, preferences, and desires.  

No one approach works for everyone.
