My Training

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.  During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.  

My education is vast and diverse -- I received my training to practice Holistic Health Counseling from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was privileged to have studied under Deepok Chopra, Andrew Weil, David Wolfe, Mark Hyman, Bernie Seigel, Geneen Roth and many others.  I am a Chinese Herbalist and a graduate of the New York Institute of Herbal Medicine and Nutrition and I am certified as a Cancer Support Educator by BEATCANCER. I Attended the Rose Program for Detoxification practitioner training in NYC and I am board certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  I am also a Polarity and Cranialsacral practitioner. Nutrition became my passion when my son was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes.  Around the same time my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Auto-Immune Thryroid disease).  I have been able to restore my body to such a balanced state that I live free of symptoms of the Hashimoto's and no longer need the medication I was told I'd need for the rest of my life and I've never felt better.  Both of these two children are extremely healthy, living well and devoid of complications from their conditions. My areas of specialty include, but are not limited to Diabetes, Celiac disease, Asthma and Allergies, IBS, cancer preventive and post-treatment diet plans and detoxification through whole and/or raw foods.  Having studied Chinese medicine, my practice has a very Eastern flair.  I have great success as I am able to integrate ancient wisdom and practices that have stood for centuries with the lastest in nutrition research. Whether you are someone struggling with one of the above-mentioned disorders, another one, or are just looking to begin your journey in a healthier lifestyle,  I'd love to talk with you and see how I could be of help.  Contact me to schedule your free health consultation today!GOOD NEWS!!! --- FOOD DICTATES HOW YOUR GENES ARE EXPRESSED!
