I am a Holistic Health Counselor, Board Certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). I received my certification in holistic health coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, in New York, NY, the world’s largest nutrition school where I studied all the major dietary theories, from vegan to Paleo, and beyond. I’ve been fortunate to learn from esteemed teachers and doctors such as Mark Hyman, MD and Susan Blum, MD, Institute of Functional Medicine; 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.
I also have a degree in Psychology from Indiana University, a background in social work counseling, and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.
My approach to nutrition does not dwell on counting calories, carbs or fat grams. It is not about restrictions, denial, or guilt. Instead, I help my clients create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, balanced, healing, and fun.
