The Nuuaria Method® is an evidence-based, change work process combining principles in behavior change theories with brain science to help people change their health, by first changing how they think.
We teach the Nuuaria Method® change work process to the public and other healthcare coaches and counselors through online and in-person classes, programs, and practitioner training.
Our MISSION is to help people create sustainable and meaningful change in their health.
Our VISION is a world where sharing, compassion and innovation for advancement of humanity flourish and times of great greed, selfishness and apathy are distant memories of past times, taught only as stories in history books to our children.
My name is Maya. I’ve been a registered dietitian (RD) since 2008 and working in private practice since 2007 with many other certifications sprinkled in along the way such as my work with the American Institute of Stress. During this time, I worked with and in many corporations, school districts, and municipalities. I held hundreds of classes and workshops teaching people how to change their health by changing how they think.
Like many, I didn’t have the best childhood experience. It led to a habituated, conditioned version of me I wanted out of: fat, sick, anxiety-ridden, burned out, too busy, high blood-sugars, and wacky hormones. It would be accurate to say most of my work was me learning and exploring how to – as cliché as it sounds – be a better version of me. The Nuuaria Method® was born by me learning that the healthy behavior change I wanted in my life never took root and stuck until I learned to change what drives those behaviors: how I think. So, this is what I brought to everything I did.
Nuuaria isn’t just a company I founded to practice in, it’s really my life’s work. For many years I was told the way I coach my clients was like a breath of fresh air, hence the name and meaning of 'nuuaria'. When, it was just how I lived my life – the standards I held myself to; the ways in which I directed my thinking; and how I explored negative emotions. The Nuuaria Method® proved to be a method for self-exploration and self-awareness that did indeed, lead to a better version of me.
Now, this method of nutrition counseling is available to the public and other health care professionals through the Nuuaria® Practitioner Training and the public program.
