About the Center

I help women who have lost and regained the same 20, 50, 100 or more pounds countless times to finally release the weight for good. I provide a diet free approach that gets results because I focus on the cause: overcoming the diet mentality and emotional eating. My coaching is centered around a one-step- at-a- time approach, compassionate, healing care and customized nutritional guidance.

I coach women privately in person, by phone or via Skype. I also offer group coaching. Coaching at Blissfully Healthy Women’s Wellness Center is a holistic community of women who are adopting a new lifestyle and releasing weight together.

About Emmie Perez

Due to abuse as a child, I developed struggles around food, body image and my weight at the very young age of 8. I battled emotional eating and yo-yo dieting for almost two decades. In 2004, I found myself over my "panic weight." I had dieted my way UP the scale! I just knew that there was more to life than always worrying about food, my weight, or the scale, and letting those things dictate my happiness. This is when I started to understand my emotional eating issues and how to overcome them.

In 2005, I discovered a love for nutrition and personal coaching while in college. I obtained extensive training on how to coach, I took certifications in Motivational Interviewing, and worked as a youth counselor with at-risk youth in shelters for almost three years. My passion for nutrition inspired me to pursue becoming certified as a weight loss coach. I took on that role at a major weight loss corporation where I became a Program & Center Director. Over the course of five years, I coached hundreds of clients on how to lose weight.

It was at this point I had been struggling with chronic fatigue, migraines and ongoing GI distress for years. Doctors couldn’t tell me what was wrong and it was then I decided to take my health back! I adopted a whole foods lifestyle which made a HUGE difference! My migraines went away, my GI distress was gone, and fatigue was so much better. I had energy! Not to mention, I finally dropped the weight and really fast! I stayed committed to changing and overcoming emotional eating by taking a one-step- at-a- time, "wellness first" approach. I discovered tools that allowed me to let go of using food to cope with the stressors of life, so that I could actually stick with healthy eating. I started to no longer need the food and I started to accept myself.

My transformation ended up inspiring me! I believed in the “wellness first” approach that I used to create my own transformation so much that in 2013 I opened up my own coaching practice and named it what the transformation result is: Blissfully Healthy! I am happy to say I am on the other side of emotional eating and truly enjoying living life! I have been blessed with a beautiful family and a supportive husband who I’ve been with for over 13 years. I am now free from the obsession around food and weight. I am happy with my weight, my body, my size and my relationship with food. I am comfortable in my own skin! My days are filled with living in the moment, enjoying life and all the little things that come with being a mother of three children between the ages of 4 to 17.

Because of the feeling I have of overcoming personally, I have dedicated the rest of my career to helping women who are still struggling with a weight problem and emotional eating have this same transformation: Freedom! 

About The Program

The coaching programs are specifically designed as a comprehensive solution for women who struggle with emotional eating, yo-yo dieting, body shame and a weight problem. I provide clients with a high level of support on a long-term basis to see their transformation all the way through. Since I specialize in working with emotional eaters, it’s especially important that they have a high level of support so that they can be successful.

My clients range in ages, sizes and backgrounds but they all have the same goal of wanting to live the rest of their life comfortable in their own skin. Some are mothers, grandmothers, single, married, stay-at- home mom’s or working professionals.
