My Training

I received my training from The School of Applied Functional Medicine & Institute for Integrative Nutrition* where I learned  innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and the complex and vigorous mechanisms by which all dis-ease in the body is interconnected.  What you consume on a day over day basis, whether it be in the form of food, social media, thoughts, or relationships,  informs every cell in your body how to respond and adapt to the life experience it is having. I am passionate about adopting a real-food, ancestral lifestyle that honors our inherent connection with Nature.  My approach centers on YOU as an utterly unique human in your genetic make-up, past experiences and exposures, lifestyle preferences, and desires.  Beyond my functional medicine training, I am a certified Reiki Master of the Usui Lineage, I have studied and experienced the power of  meditation, and am a doTERRA Essential Oils advocate and certified in the AromaTouch Technique.  

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.
