MY TRAINING

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition* where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.


I also have received certification through Supreme Science Qigong as an Advanced Food-Based Healing Instructor and have been teaching people how to reverse specific conditions using specific foods since 2009. 

While at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition* I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including:

  • Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
  • Deepak Chopra, MD leader in the field of mind-body medicine
  • David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center
  • Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University
  • Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
  • Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach
  • Susan Blum, MD, MPH, assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine
  • Mark Hyman, MD, founder of The UltraWellness Center

  • Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author
  • Joel Fuhrman, MD, family physician and leading expert on nutritional healing
        


My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.

Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.

Meal Prepping Made Easy

You’ve hit the midweek slump and decided to skip making dinner and instead reach for your phone for nearby takeout.

Do either of these sound like a routine you’ve succumbed to?

Cravings. We all have them. Food cravings are a common response to what we’re going through and can cause the desire to munch on foods we wouldn’t normally eat, such as salty potato chips or sweet chocolate brownies. Studies have shown that cravings for certain foods come from a variety of reasons, including memories, emotions, weather, and stress.
