My Approach

I have a holistic approach to health and wellness which means I look at the whole picture. Every single thing in our life is connected.

How many times have you found yourself drowning your sorrows in a pint of chocolate ice cream? Have you ever worked so hard that your forgot to eat? Do you feel like you need 10 more hours a day to do everything you need to accomplish?

Working with me will help you find balance in all areas of your life.

Together, we’ll work to achieve your goals towards achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, getting more sleep and having more energy.

About Maria Riboli

I was born and raised in Italy and moved to New York in 1998 and immediately felt at home!

I’m an actress/director and acting teacher here in New York City. It’s a passion I’ve had since I was a little girl and it’s a huge chunk of who I am!

In 2007 I made some drastic changes to my life. I was out of balance, in a place where I wasn’t really happy and everything reflected on my well being.

Finally one day I decided I deserved more, and I ‘grabbed a spoon’, a spoon full of health and life!

I changed my lifestyle, I changed my eating habits too and slowly but surely I started to live my best life!

It’s my personal mission to help you achieve all your goals and to show you that nothing is impossible.

Nothing makes me happier than to see someone succeed! I take to heart the life and health of all my clients, and seeing someone transforming during the program is just a gift to me.

I received my training to practice Health and Life Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York, with board certification in Health Counseling (CHC) and I am also board certified and accredited by the American Association for Drugless Practitioners (AADP).

IIN is the only nutrition school integrating all the different dietary theories—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, the Zone and raw foods and many more.
