The BetterHealth Journey® uses 5 KEY STEPS


A rigorous onboarding process supports us in collaboratively gaining clarity about your challenges, while you jumpstart your health journey with The Body Sass® Cleanse.


We develop clarity around your needs, desires and goals, on all levels of your being. This instructs your initial focus areas and general plan, while remaining open to needed shifts.


You and I continually address your perceived barriers to health and well-being, while you develop the awareness and skills to navigate them, for life.


We work together in the safe harbor of a no-judgement zone to support you in developing an empowered well-being mindset.


All good processes allow for iteration and evolution. As we work together, we continually evaluate progress and remain open to engaging with new needs, barriers and mindset snags that are uncovered.

Who raves about this unique and powerful one-to-one program?

Every. Single. Participant.

  • Life is a grind in so many ways. I just felt like a mess. I had a 2-year-old and a newborn and was back to work full time. I was exhausted, overweight and not taking very good care of myself. Having children changes your body and can take a toll on your self-esteem, which of course has an impact on other relationships.

    Laurie creates a safe space and helped me look at my life. Her compassion and lack of judgement allowed me to listen, learn and heal. I’m so grateful for her guidance, advice and education—my work with Laurie changed my life and ended up benefitting my whole family, on so many levels!

    Four years later, I feel on top of the world most days, instead of feeling like the world’s on top of me! No matter how busy I am, I take time to be good to myself. I’ve maintained my right-sized body, am less stressed and am much happier.

  • I found myself 62 years old and 50+ pounds overweight with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and acid reflux. I didn’t feel good or healthy, and my daughter’s upcoming wedding pushed me into action to reclaim my better-feeling self.

    In this program, I lost all the excess weight and created a new habits, mindset and lifestyle to sustain my newly-won healthy me—including no-stress dinners out! Discouraging lab tests, aches and pains are a thing of the past. Three years later, I feel healthy, have stamina, and look and feel great in stylish clothes. If you’re ready to create lasting change, I highly recommend this program.

  • This holistic program helped me lose menopausal weight I never thought I’d lose, develop a completely new and healthy relationship with food, and has me feeling better at 60 than I did at 40. Laurie meets you where you need to be met and has an exquisite ability to work with limiting belief systems and a person’s soul journey, if they so choose. 

    As a psychotherapist and long-term eating disorder specialist I would recommend Laurie’s work to people without question. With strength, compassionate directness, and the wisdom of the earth, Laurie is willing to show up for the hard things in the world.
