Change can be hard. We help you make it easy,

by helping you change how you think, for wellness in all areas of life.

Racism, hate, greed, selfishness, these things are taught. They are learned, just like overthinking, all-or-nothing thinking, perfectionism, rigid scheduling, busy-ness, stress, overwhelm and frustration.

If we want a better world, if we want our lives to change in some meaningful way, we’re going to have to start with learning how to unlearn what we’ve been taught by learning how to think differently and formulate our own thought, instead of  ‘taught thought’.

The change we want globally starts with ourselves. This is what we mean when we use the hashtag: #changestartswithme

At Nuuaria, we teach you how to think differently to create permanent and meaningful change. Our process is simple and rooted in brain science. Our programming covers the areas of everyday mental wellness and weight loss. We are expanding into chronic pain, negative thinking, relationships, career, confidence and more.

We are not therapy.
We are not a diet.
We are not a 12-step program.
We are not life coaches.

We are Nuuaria.

While Nuuaria’s powerful and refreshing process for change speaks for itself, our secret sauce… is humans. Technology is a helpful assist, yet it’s humans who change humans. You’ll be comforted to know our humans – we call them mentors – have been in your shoes and thought your thoughts.

(It’s part of our conscious business model: Those who wish to continue their training may become a Nuuaria mentor to help those who are where they’ve been.)

We fellow humans believe in the innate goodness of humanity and are committed to you and your ‘change-work’ to see our vision this lifetime:

… a world where sharing, compassion, and innovation for the 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.

While this might provide all the good-feels, you ought to know we take our results seriously. Combine Nuuaria’s fifteen-year, evidence-based methodology and mentorship with your own willingness to change and our results speak for themselves. So much so, our clients and partners include The American Institute of Stress, PING golf, CVS Health, Paychex, school districts, municipalities, and more.

Come unlearn with us because, #changestartswithme.

Founder’s Story

My name is Maya. I grew up in a Lebanese home with wonderful food, everywhere, all of the time. Food was love. In my younger years, my weight was in the 200s. When I was ready, I turned to fashion magazines for weight loss help. Mission half accomplish: pretty in body but now sick in mind. I checked myself in to registered dietitian school in hopes to understand what was wrong with me. Yes, now I understood why an apple was healthier than a candy bar yet I kept binging my way through the candy bars, always on or off in my attempts towards total health. I paralleled by studies with neuroscience and psychology, slowly adopted basic behavior change.

After college I started a small practice coaching just that, behavior change in my clients. Stressed out most of the time, I was running from bears (aka fears) that weren’t real. I was always busy being busy. I believed I had to set an alarm for the sun to rise in the morning. Burnout struck, weight returned, and I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, anxiety and depression. These disguised blessings birthed the Nuuaria Method®. By adopting a regular practice of this method, my health returned when I learned how to change my habitual thinking. It was finally the end of efforting, fighting, resisting, controlling and strategizing and the beginning of a whole new way to permanent change.
