Welcome to my virtual nook. I'm Karla Kueber, an evidence based EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) practitioner, health coach and heart connector. I help people find freedom from unhealthy eating patterns so they can embrace better health.
Find Freedom with Food and in Life
The work I do is so much more than developing a healthier relationship with food. It's about developing a better relationship with your intuition and body. It's about letting go of all that you needed to be and stepping into the heart-centered, healthy person that you truly are. It is about being empowered by what your body is telling you and trusting your heart for inner guidance. It is about learning to love your whole self and the food you fuel your body with.
Welcome, I'm Karla Kueber
My mission is to help people find freedom from unhealthy eating patterns so they are able to embrace a healthier and happier life.
As a certified Evidence Based EFT practitioner and health coach, I'm here to help you get to the root cause of what is impeding your health and causing you to suffer; so that you can experience freedom from the struggle and embrace better health.
Helping others to heal and empower themselves to transform their health and ultimately lives is my gift, and I genuinely love doing it! I believe the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and those we care most about is taking care of our own health and well being. I've personally been affected by the terrible diseases and illnesses that wreaked havoc on the lives of those I love. It's much of what drives my own desire for optimal health- mind, and body.
In my journey to healing my health ailments and step into excellent health, I discovered the genuine connection that emotions, spirituality, lifestyle, and nutrition all have on one's overall health and wellness.
My childhood was all butterflies and flowers until it wasn't. The truth is, like many others, I had a really tough childhood. My mom battled cancer for years and eventually lost that battle. My family was ultimately left broken. My father was busy trying to play multiple roles while also trying to escape his grief. I was forced to grow up real quick, becoming a strong, independent, resilient child on the outside, but suffering much pain and grief on the inside.
I continued to be put on my game face, achieving much outward success in life. I had a career with many accomplishments as a teacher, financial comfort, and I was contributing positively to society, but it was costing me my life. I was exhausted, physically, emotionally, mentally. I was a workaholic, disguised as a martyred teacher, meaning I gave all of myself to being a teacher. This was the only way I knew I was a valuable "good" person in the world. I was in constant judgment of myself, feeling nothing was ever good enough. I was battling unhealthy relationships with food, others, and myself. I was putting on a great face, but I was living in constant stress and misery.
I set out in search of a better life; I knew there had to be more to life than the way I was living. Little did I know at the time, this journey is precisely what would guide me to step into my destiny.
I started searching for more and what that meant to me. It took me on a journey inward, to a place I hadn't ventured too much over the years- as I was too busy focusing on my external world.
I began journaling, reading personal growth books, learning about health and wellness, developed my spiritual practice, attended workshops, went to therapy, practicing yoga, and more.
All these things help tremendously! I share much about these on my blog. But what I found was that no matter what I did, I still had lingering blocks (traumas) that were keeping me stuck. With that, core beliefs of being broken and not good enough hung on as well.
I searched for ways on how to free myself from this. I learned that trauma resides in our bodies until it is healed using mind-body therapy. Trauma can be described as an overload on the nervous system. We all have experienced trauma in some ways; it is a part of life. Traumatic events can be an embarrassing incident as a child that has left you feeling scarred as an adult to experiencing grief over the death of another.
One thing that deterred me from healing (and often shared by others) is that others have it much worse. The belief that my experience isn't trauma because… Trauma is subjective; it's how our individual nervous system responds to the incident(s). Something traumatic for one person may not have been traumatic for another.
Through the recommendation of a friend, I started working privately with an Evidence Based EFT practitioner. I found freedom from the core beliefs, wounds, and traumas that had been living in my body and restricting my life. This trauma had kept me playing safe, disconnected from myself and others; it also manifested as back pain and other symptoms in my body.
The more emotional freedom I found, the more freedom and openness I found in other areas of my life; mind, body, and heart. I found freedom from restriction. Ease and empowerment in my body. Freedom to give and receive love without fear of rejection, to see myself and others more from my heart and less from my head. Most importantly, I discovered inner peace, a place that is always waiting for me regardless of what's happening in the world around me.
