Welcome...I'm so glad
that you are here
We all deserve to thrive; mind, body and spirit. It is our right to feel our best despite what is happening outside of ourselves. If you are anxious, displeased with your body, a perfectionist, stressed-out, over-committed, exhausted and don't have time to care for yourself, you have come to the right place. I can relate!
Up until about ten years ago, my daily routine consisted of poor coping skills such as drinking a pot of strong coffee first thing out of bed, followed by lots of candy (skittles and gummy anything were my faves) and a few glasses of wine each night, to "calm my nerves." How did that work out for me? Not so well! I was a hot mess and my inner and outer life reflected it. I was forgetful, late, exhausted, cranky, impatient, unfocused, lacked self-compassion and suffered from severe discomfort in my joints. The perpetual smile on my face was not authentic.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia by a well known Orthopedist and told to take Vioxx (the highly advertised anti-inflammatory drug). My curiosity was sparked and I began wondering... what alternative options did I have to medication? I had learned that stress, poor food choices, lack of self-care, negative beliefs, and mindless living and eating were known to cause joint pain, along with anxiety, poor sleep and an overall sense of imbalance in my life.
I started slowing down, creating awareness around my patterns, and paid attention to how my choices effected me on a physical and emotional level. I also incorporated meditation into my daily routine. It was shocking to discover that the small shifts greatly impacted how I related to others, myself, my three daughters (now 17, 15 and 12) as well as my outer world.
Throughout this journey, I attended Food as Medicine Training, a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Class, Internal Family Systems Training along with a host of additional training programs. I also studied with my mentor Dr. Paul Epstein, a world renown mind-body medicine professor. A true gift in my transformation, and I am deeply grateful to Paul.
Now, each day I show up and embrace life fully. I'm courageous and connected to my innate wisdom, energy and power (we all have it). I am not perfect, I fall down...then I get up and try again. Now, I'm in a unique position to inspire others. It is my pleasure to help children and adults revive their internal energy and power, and live a vibrant, fulfilling life. If I did it, you can too.
Show up for yourself! Take that courageous step to reach out and discover the best version of yourself.
With love and gratitude,

"LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD"
Book Jen for a corporate or school event. She focuses on tuning into the wisdom of your body, while reducing stress through healing foods and practicing mindfulness.
"Jen’s warm, non-judgmental manner immediately put me at ease. We talked; she is a model of good listening. She clearly understood who I was and my life style and we figured out some steps that were sensible and doable. Just a few sessions really changed the way I think about food - slowing down, being mindful about what, when and how I eat. I would not have guessed that my time with her would have such an enduring impact so I highly recommend Jen for anyone who is trying to improve their relationship with food and their body long-term."

"Jen’s enthusiasm and knowledge about healthy living is contagious!She encourages us to reframe our view of food, to see it as pleasurable and nourishing, rather than categorically “bad” or “good.” Jen, herself, is as nurturing as the foods she espouses. She is clearly passionate about helping others, and does so with great warmth and humor."
