What It Means to LIVE with Diabetes

Living is not merely existing. Living with diabetes is about reconnecting with yourself and discovering what makes you truly happy. Healing happens from the inside out – not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. With the right mindset and self-awareness, you can develop sustainable strategies for living joyfully, living passionately, and just plain living!

Diabetes Connection was created to overcome the self-defeating, disempowering beliefs that say:

“You have diabetes because of your own poor choices and behaviors.”
“Your condition is your own fault.”
“You need to lose weight.”
“You eat all the wrong things.”
“You need to go on a diabetic diet.”
“You need to exercise X many hours X many times a week.”

Through coaching and education, I assist you to let go of the self-criticism and negative self-image that result from diabetes stigma. I help you examine your beliefs and values and build self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-compassion. I hold space as this work allows you to embrace all that life has to offer.
