Buckle up, this isn't your typical “About Me” page.
I'm in the business of building hope and restoring faith. I believe everyone can heal, and that wellness is the result of self-love, education, commitment, and discipline. My statement of wellness: "We were created with the innate ability to heal ourselves."
When we work together, I will: be your coach, hold you accountable, challenge you, and be the compass that keeps you on the path. You’ll discover ways to shift "what is" - to what you desire, in every area of your life. You’ll develop confidence in your ability to create the health, wellness, and future life you envision.
My abridged medical history: By the age of 34 I had 30 surgeries. In my twenties, I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus shortly after overcoming years of anorexia and bulimia. This diagnosis, back in the ‘80’s, carried a death sentence. My doctors told me my best outcome was 5 – 7 years and offered me medications and physical therapy to ease my suffering, I refused. That was 32 years ago.
Instead of leading with educational quests and titles, my knowledge is gleaned from my reality and I share that practical knowledge with you. My relentless years of study were adjuncts to my healing journey, and in some cases diversions. My pain, suffering, and despair drove my research and were my guides and teachers.
Long before mainstream medicine announced the correlation between the health of the immune system and gut health, I lived the connection, and painstakingly dedicated my life to discovering how to heal my body and save my life.
I can say with 100% certainty that healing lies within each of us. Wellness is not found in a prescription bottle or medical procedure. Healing is a journey, a journey within to discover, uncover and connect. It is an eternal commitment to self and requires tremendous self-love.
I will guide and support you in your quest for healing. If we work together we may use biofeedback, assessments, coaching, nutrition, meditation, mindfulness exercises, journaling, sound healing, reiki, yoga, or creative exercises. Ultimately our work together will guide and inspire you to unleash your healer within.
Today I am thriving, living an optimistic, joyful, abundantly healthy life. I greet each day with enthusiasm and passion. I have been blessed and want to share that blessing with you. I envision the next forty plus years to be my best years yet! To learn more please schedule an appointment: Services/Booking.
