…doesn’t actually begin in the field of health and wellness. I only started on this path after spending twelve years in a highly rewarding but stressful corporate environment. Long work hours, client meetings, travel, conferences, deadlines and various other commitments translated into sleep disturbances, poor eating habits and numerous cups of coffee I needed to keep me going. I felt sick, tired, depressed and without purpose. Something needed to change…and I’m thankful that it did!
After months of mental struggle, countless hours of research and checking in with myself, I left the corporate world behind and finally stepped into the one of holistic health and wellness by commencing my studies at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. I was embarking on the journey of a lifetime! From Nutritional Pathology to Holistic Food Preparation to Psychology of Disease, I devoured all the material that was taught in school and then sought out more, through Continuing Education courses.
I truly resonate with the concept that, in our interactions with our clients, we engage with the Whole Person as the unity of body, mind, and spirit. Our focus is on prevention of dis-ease rather than merely managing symptoms. We listen to the unique history and needs of a person to gain insight into the “why and how” a certain health condition developed and what can be done to restore balance.
The driving force behind my dedication has been the aspiration to help others who, just like me in the past, may suffer in silence, unaware that there are solutions to their problems, unaware that every person has an innate healing power – given the right resources, environment, guidance and support.
Today, in my education-based functional nutrition and wellness practice I am committed to helping people overcome their health challenges and reclaim their joy, health and vitality. I love teaching my clients how to interpret the messages they receive from their bodies and my approach integrates the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of a person.
Functional Nutrition aims to identify and resolve the patterns underlying someone’s symptoms by creating a customized program in order to return the body and mind to a state of balance or homeostasis.
Remember: You deserve to feel like yourself again! I welcome you to your healing journey!
