Hi, I’m Ryann.

Your Not-So-Average Food Freedom Therapist & Virtual Coach. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified Nutritionist with a BA in Psychology, and a MA in Professional Counseling, yes I do a little of the "so how does that make you feel".

But my ultimate goal is to provide you with the resources you need, in an easy-to-understand way, on healing your disordered relationship with food and your body.

Mental Health 


Natalie Linan is someone I am so excited to bring to The Food Freedom Lab Podcast because she brings together 2 of my favorite things: mental health and fitness! Natalie is incredibly inspirational and teaches women how to move from a place of working out because you hate your body to a place of working out because you love your body… and I mean, how needed is that?! Natalie aspires to be a motivational speaker to people around the world who find it hard to see their purpose in life – and I mean, after listening to this episode, you will see that passion shine through her! 

I adore Natalie and so appreciate her perspective. If you’ve ever felt out of sync with the person you want to be and the person you feel you currently are, this is your episode.

Who is Natalie Linan?

Over the last few years, Natalie has transformed her life into the happiest, healthiest version of herself. She decided one day to change her life and never looked back. Little did she know then that one decision would open her eyes to all the beauty life has to offer. Natalie is now building her dream of becoming a fitness and confidence coach. As she has found her confidence again, she shares her secrets and methods to help others do the same! Oh yeah, and did I mention she is only 21?!

Finding what works 

Natalie and I discuss what health means and how that looks different for everybody. Natalie discusses how her coaching is completely client-centered, focusing on what they want and helping them achieve that. She has her client write down everything they want to accomplish and life and then choose the most important one at that moment. I love this because Natalie can focus on lifestyle habits rather than this list of goals. And well – if you’ve read Atomic Habits, you know that habits are #life. 

Balancing Life

Natalie is a freaking superwoman, and I had to ask her how she does it all. She works a 9-5, owns her coaching business, runs a motivational Instagram account, AND maintains a healthy lifestyle. I had to ask her how she does it! Natalie says the best way to get more enjoyment out of life when life is crazy is by savoring moments, being grateful, and making time for fun. We talk about how easy it is to get into a routine rut when you work a 9-5 and how easy it is to start to slip into bad habits. I am amazed by everything that Nat does, and she shows that anything is possible when you put your mind to what you want!
