Health Coaching

Hi there.  I’m Dani and I’ll help you learn how to eat better and FEEL better about food and your body.

I know how it goes.  You want to eat better, reach your health goals and create a better relationship with food and body, but all of the contradictory nutritional information out there has your head spinning and leaves you paralyzed from making any changes at all.

Believe me, I’ve been there and I know how frustrating and overwhelming it can feel.  That’s why I am so passionate and committed to sharing this work.

There is both an art and science to health and nutrition and in order to reach our goals we need to take a look at the whole picture.

 “Dani Spies is uncomplicated, simple, real and down to earth.  I’ve tried Atkins, South Beach, counting calories, Weight Watchers, cutting carbs, Quick Weight Loss….the list goes on.  Dani’s approach towards eating and health is totally different from anything I’ve ever tried before.” – Cristine P.



A little more about my story:

I spent years of my life trying to be thin and have been on every diet known to man.   My weight was pretty much all I thought about all day long.  I remember day dreaming about what it would be like to be a naturally thin person who did not think about food and body 24 hours a day.  It was unimaginable to me.  What did these people do with all of their free time!?

And then (after lots of seeking) I realized I was chasing thin to be happy.

I believed, being thin meant being happy (I mean really, don’t thin people always seem so happy?!).

I also believed that I wasn’t worth very much unless I was in a pair of size 4 jeans.   Really it was no wonder I was fighting so hard to be thin, since it seemed as though my value depended upon it.

But there was not one piece of chasing thin that made me feel happy.

And while being fit and healthy is something I really wanted and knew I would enjoy, it was not the road to happiness (or peace and ease in my body).

Here’s the deal.

Our feelings are not caused by our bodies, our weight, or our diet.

Our feelings are created by our thoughts, beliefs and desires.

And when you believe that your value lies in the amount your body weighs, you begin to put your life on hold.  And when you put your life on hold, you become bored, frustrated and anxious… and then, you EAT.

I will walk you through, step by step, to simplify the only nutritional facts you need to know about healthy eating for life (no diets! I promise).  We will take a look at all of the obstacles (both mental and physical) that hold you back and you will learn how to use your mind to change the habits that do not serve you while setting and reaching the goals that do.


“Working with Dani was a fantastic experience for me.  She taught me how to discover my hidden truths.  It’s amazing to learn how a few simple tools can change my whole focus!  I like knowing that if I get stuck, I can call on Dani to help me sort things out.” – Janet M.


Get Started

If you are tired of trying diet after diet with no results and are ready to learn the simple, straight forward facts about food and nutrition while taking a closer look at how your thoughts and beliefs affect your food and body, then we need to chat.

Step 1 Contact –  Simply send me an email with ‘Get To Know You’ in the subject and we can schedule a 30-minute complimentary session to see if we are a good fit.

Step 2.  Questionnaire – I’ll send you a pre-session questionnaire so I can get to know you a little better before our call so we can make the best use of our time together.

Step 3. Get To Know You Session – We will chat and get to ‘meet’ each other.  We’ll take a look at beliefs and patterns that hold you back and determine whether or not coaching with me feels right for you.

I want to work with clients who are as excited about coaching as I am, so it’s important to me that it feels like a good fit for both of us.

Note: I can coach anyone, anywhere.  I have worked with clients as far away as Germany.  As long as you have a phone and a computer, we can make this happen.

Continued Support

“It is something beyond just basic math, I needed to understand why I overeat when I do. That’s where Dani came into my life and has been helping me down the sometimes complicated emotional path of healing what is behind the bad eating habits I had developed. I can’t say enough about her consummate professionalism, extensive knowledge, and most importantly, empathy. My issue isn’t something that can be fixed overnight, but Dani is helping me heal from the inside out and this time I am confident that I will be living life on my terms.” – Karen P.
