I consider myself so fortunate that my eyes were opened very early to the natural healing world. Books by Andrew Weil were on our coffee table. Food from our garden was in our freezer and canning cellar. When my sister continued to get recurrent tonsillitis my mother, who was a nurse, didn't have her tonsils removed as recommended by the doctor. Instead, we got a goat! I remembered her painting her tonsils with an herb at that time also. Surgery was avoided.
Years ago, our family went through an extremely challenging time. Not long after 3 of us developed auto-immune illnesses. One of my sons, juvenile diabetes, my daughter, celiac disease and I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, autoimmune thyroid disorder. The occurrence of all of our initial diagnoses having been within a year and a half after family turmoil made me ask the question how does stress affect health, and specifically auto-immune illness. I began to delve deeply into the study of the connection between mind and body and how the body's symptoms are related to the nervous system on such a base level . With the proper diet and lifestyle adjustments my children now live very healthy lives and I have healed my autoimmune thyroid disorder with a combined approach of herbal strategies, bodywork and proper diet. I am symptom-free and take no medication.
My formal training is vast and diverse. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the finest teachers in my field - Mark Hyman, Andrew Weil, Natalia Rose and Charlotte Gerson of the Gerson Institute, in areas of nutrition. Gabrielle Bernstein, Deepok Chopra, PEACE, LOVE, HEALING in areas of mind/body medicine. In working with people I believe it is imperative to address the spirit. Getting to the root of the issue through deep imbalances that are often nervous system based.
My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:
- Anxiety, depression, and stress management
- Diabetes- Type 1 and type 2
- Herbal and dietary strategies to compliment Western cancer treatment protocols for maximum efficacy

- Eating disorders and addictions of all types (food, drug or behavior)

Using a combined approach of diet, lifestyle, nervous system release and herbal strategies, if desired, a unique and effective healing program is designed for each and every client. I never cease continuing my education in the latest research and/or approaches to healing - both Eastern and Western medicine. My passion is healing. Nurturing each person at their root so to eliminate symptoms and disease and enabling them to live happy, balanced lives.
