I’m all about living a simple, healthy, happy lifestyle, preparing real food, creating natural products and helping you do the same. I like to call this “Wholistic Wellness”; getting every aspect of your life healthy, not just by food, but also from relationships, career, creativity and spirituality.

My Story…



In my 20’s, after I graduated from college I started having allergic reactions to medicine. I then started having anxiety and panic attacks and took a nose dive into severe depression. I could not eat for 3 days at a time and started having insomnia.

This went on for several months so I finally went to see a doctor. After seeing a couple different doctors, not one could tell me why this started happening after growing up a healthy child. They suggested it was all in my head and that I should take Xanax or Paxil as needed for the rest of my life. Of course, since I was having allergic reactions to medicine I was afraid to take anything so I went without.

By this time I had dropped down to about 100 pounds, I could not imagine living the rest of my life this way. I started thinking of how I could end it all and be free from this anxiety and depression. But, there was a whisper in my head telling me “Don’t give up, there is more for you. You will get through this”.

I finally saw another doc who told me to start journaling to get thoughts out of my head and onto paper…he called it a “brain dump”. Another doctor, yet again, wanted to put me on drugs and I finally asked “Can I just take vitamins or something instead?” and that’s when I was introduced to natural health. I was introduced to a Naturopath and started taking supplements that were good for anxiety as well as a multi-vitamin and must-mineral supplement. I started incorporating healthier foods into my diet. Guess what? I started to feel better! I started taking classes from this woman to learn about herbs as well as Iridology (how to read eyes). Fast forward to my 40’s, after having a child, I decided to go back to school so I could help others feel better naturally. At the age of 49, I became a Board Certified Traditional Naturopath!

My mission and commitment to you is getting to the root cause why you are not feeling well, not treat the symptoms. This involves listening to your unique story, performing several assessments, and determining what factors in your life are causing you to feel unwell. Together we stimulate your body’s natural healing capacity. I do this combining natural and non-invasive modalities such as nutrition, herbs, essential oils, bio-feedback, and vascular therapy. We will work together to address any emotional issues that may be holding you back.

I have received multiple certifications in holistic health from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, International Institute of Natural Wellness, and American Naturopathic Medical Association where I received my designations of Board Certified Traditional Naturopath, Master Herbalist, Holistic Health Coach, and Advanced Nutrition Consultant.

I look forward to partnering with you on your healing journey!
