It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As an Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals. Throughout my education, I have been exposed to the most cutting-edge dietary theories and studied highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right lifestyle that works best for you.
Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, my clients find these changes collectively creating a much larger impact than they originally anticipated. We work on what they want to improve within the circumstances of their unique situation.

In 2005, after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism she started down a path to healing that would forever change her life. The information that she learned through her certification as an Advanced Food-Based Healing instructor through Supreme Science Qigong gave her the tools to reverse her hypothyroidism with food and lifestyle. Excited to be on her next adventure in natural health studying to be an Holistic Health Coach she will receive her certification in June of 2018 through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
