Marcia - Health Coach

Marcia round.png
Marcia is in the final year of the doctoral program in Experimental Behavioral Psychology. Her research focuses on the ways in which our decision-making and choice behavior is shaped by our environment, which can be so influential that we predictably behave in ways that are not in our own self-interest, often putting us in conflict with our own bodies. Although frustrating, once we become aware of those influences, we can manipulate our environments to help us produce the behaviors we desire. Marcia is thrilled to assist you as you work with and honor your body through strengthening, nourishing, and creating supportive environments.
