About Me

I am one of less than 2500 National Board-Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coaches in the U.S.  I am passionate about using a Functional Medicine perspective to help women with their health struggles.  That means focusing on finding out what the root cause of your symptoms are and dealing with them naturally so you can live a vibrant and healthy life once and for all.  We’ll address the reasons you have symptoms and resolve them rather than just give you medication to cover them up.  Healthy is not a state created by taking medications to feel good, it is feeling healthy because we have all your organs and systems working the way they should…medication free!

 

I noticed that no matter where I was women were talking about struggling with brain fog, fatigue/exhaustion, constipation, sleep issues, stress, obesity & weight loss, IBS, GERD, diabetes, allergies, heart disease, depression and anxiety just to name a few issues. I heard them at the gym, in line at the grocery store or even while waiting to order my lunch at a local café.

 

I was frustrated because even though my health coach training was extensive I could only help clients up to a point and then their issues were in the hands of their doctors who gave them various medications for their symptoms.  I knew that there had to be a different way so, I researched schools that would give me the training to help my clients find the root cause of their dis-ease.  I am not a medical professional (although 60% of my fellow students are) and so I do not diagnose illnesses or prescribe medications.  I partner with my clients to address their personal wellness goals and to determine what their unique body needs to function optimally as there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to achieving optimal health and vitality.

 

I believe that stress and lack of time are two of our biggest problems and spending so much time in traffic ,just trying to get to our destination just compounds it.  So, for that reason I only work virtually with my clients.  I don’t mean that we talk on the phone because it is important for us to be able to see each other.  Therefore, I do all my client consultations using programs like Facetime, Zoom or Practice Better.  In this way we both avoid the stress and extra time that it would take to travel and can meet in the calm and privacy of our own homes.  It’s truly a win-win for all!

My Training

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and disease prevention.  I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City where my instructors were among the most well-known practitioners in the world.

 

I am also a certified Quantum Coaching Method™ Practitioner specializing in working deeply with my clients to address their core issues and create sustainable lifestyle changes. As a Quantum DeJunking Facilitator™ I will work with my clients to look at and modify their external environments, which in turn allows for wonderful internal transformations.

 

I am a Functional Medicine Health Practitioner.  I am passionate about helping exhausted, stressed women who have health issues – perhaps digestive, sleep, weight, brain fog or they just feel lousy.  They are burning the candle at both ends, taking care of everyone and everything, putting their own health on the back burner.

I help these women reclaim their energy, stamina and vitality so that they can keep up with their busy lives and live their lives to their fullest.  I coach and educate them on their health challenges and give them options.  And, through a discovery process we find out the true root cause of their issues and help them get back to what the body is really good at, which is healing itself.

I believe that no matter what you do in life, your greatest asset is your healthy body.  And, if you don’t listen to the signals that it is giving you, it will find a drastic way to get your attention.

I am here to really listen to what is going on with you and to customize a program for the unique person that you are.  There is no “one-size fits all” when it comes to what to eat or what your particular body will respond to. You will see that as your diet changes so does your body, your mood, your focus, your level of happiness, your energy and more.

You CAN transform your health, there is only one thing missing to help you do it, ME!
