Meet the Founder
Hi, I am Nichole Fabrizio, a practicing integrative health coach, wellness expert and mother. My passion for motivating and supporting others to lead healthy and active lives led me to creating a full service health coaching business. You.Balanced grew out of my lifelong interest in nutrition, holistic medicine and overall wellness. Guided by a practical, motivational and optimistic approach, I help clients improve their health, achieve their goals, develop sustainable habits and tools to live a balanced and satisfying life.
I believe nutrition and intuition go hand and hand. Driven by the desire to help my clients, and my own curiosity, I study the latest research, read-up on various health and wellness topics from top experts around the world and most of all connect with the top health and wellness experts to offer customized programs to our clients. It takes a tribe, and I use this knowledge to share recommendations and create bio-individualized plans for my clients.
My Intuition is My
I was faced with many challenges growing up, lived in various homes with different family members, lost my father at a young age and a mother who abandoned me. I also spent a lot of time learning about the healing capabilities of holistic medicine while helping my uncle with a debilitating disease. This exposed me to a wide range of conventional and unconventional teachers and views from different cultures. Looking back, I realized I had a special gift, a keen intuitive sense that I now call my super power. This super power exists in all of us, we just may not be using it to it's full potential.
These experiences inspired my path of self-exploration and my life's purpose, helping as many people utilize their intuition and tap into their super powers. When I started being patient with myself and with the process things finally started to flow. I enjoy helping others make tiny modifications that create powerful results. These results can help create a ripple effect influencing not only the individual but also those around them. Now as a mother in my 40's, life is nourishment. The journey is the best part, the rewards are just the cherry on top!

My Love Affair With Food.
My love affair with food has only grown fonder in the last fifteen plus years after being swept off my feet by my Italian stallion and landed in a whole new world full of first generation Italians. The love for food and culture that I've gained has sparked me into a life adventure to find the perfect balance by eating the foods I enjoy while maintaining a vibrant, active and healthy life. Is it possible?
I love everything that food gives us; the nourishment, togetherness and comfort. Being with the ones you love eating delicious food is what life is all about! I am always amazed at the rewards that come with growing, harvesting and cooking with your own veggies and herbs and immediately tasting, feeling and appreciating that love in every bite and the energy those nutrients give back to me to be able to give my family the very best of me. I love tasting cuisines from all different cultures.
We enjoy taking an eclectic approach to our food at home and that carries over while we're traveling and testing out the local flavors. In my early years I was on a wave of strict dieting, over working my body and constant failed attempts or setbacks. I didn’t know how to break the treacherous cycle and I was only becoming more and more frustrated. Nevertheless, I was on a mission to find the perfect balance.
Then came motherhood. The moment I gave birth two new lives were born. I was not the same woman. I felt empowered and more confident in my skin because I witnessed what my body was capable of and most of all what I was/am capable of during my pregnancies, birth and now motherhood. Living with a few hours of sleep and hairy armpits with a drive to accomplish my goals and gratitude to my current life and being fully present while planning for the future., I started changing the way I thought about health and what it really meant. My interest in nutrition and curiosity for how to fuel my body (and mind) lead me to the decision of going back to school, while working full time and being a mom, to become a certified health coach.
