I am mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, employee and boss. I am also a certified holistic health & lifestyle councilor, a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My specialty is working with overwhelmed women who are ready to change their relationship with their body, their food and their home. Over the years, my work with clients has taken on various forms such as online group classes, in-person workshops, one on one counseling, featured writing and contributing editor opportunities and even co-leading a retreat in Morocco.
One of my greatest passions is connecting with women and gently guiding them back to themselves. I believe that every woman deserves to have a loving relationship with her body and the foods she chooses to nourish herself with. I believe that when our homes are brought into balance it can be a catalyst for immense growth. I'm a highly skilled listener and work intuitively to help you reach your goals - in body or home. No matter your shape, size or current habits, the work we do together can help bring you more clarity on what type of new foundation you want to start creating for yourself.
Some other things that may be of interest: I know what it feels like to look at pictures of yourself and proceed to have a mini meltdown. I have a history with disordered eating that has been healed. Interior design and Feng Shui hold a special place in my heart. I don't believe that you have to look or eat a certain way to be beautiful or of value. I think the best things in life are simple, like watching the sun dance on the waves, cold bodies laying on hot rocks, a crackling fire on a cold winter day or standing in your underwear eating the juiciest peach while standing over the kitchen sink. The spaces we inhabit as modern women can be complicated but they don't have to stay that way. You are not a walking apology and the number on the scale never tells the whole story. Calling in support when you need it the most is self care at it's finest and I would be honored to join you on your path.
When I'm not waxing poetic about different ways to love our bodies, making messes in the kitchen or pouring over interior design blogs; I can be found working as a community outreach director for a social service organization, adventuring in nature or cozied up on the couch with my beautiful family.
