YOU'RE IN THE PERFECT PLACE.
The heart-the root-of it all comes down to how you relate to yourself, your feelings, and
your inner world.
And it's my specialty to help you reduce stress and transform the limiting beliefs that have kept you stuck in a cycle of defeat so you can show up for yourself in a new way.
My step-by-step transformative process integrates proven techniques to change your relationship with food and your body so you feel more empowered to achieve a healthy life you love, filled with
joy and meaning.
Any you'll learn to achieve that inner and outer state of radiance, health, and resilience through the integration of real self-care. Not just bubble baths and walks in the park.
So let's change the narrative, remove the blocks, and journey back to you.
Up until thirteen years ago, my daily routine consisted of harmful coping skills including overdosing on caffeine, sugar, and alcohol.
Every. single. day.
I was a hot mess and my inner and outer life reflected it. I suffered from anxiety, brain fog, attention deficit disorder, exhaustion, achy joints, digestive issues, and disordered eating.
I never felt smart enough, thin enough, lovable (or loving) enough. And my daily progress was based on how many items I crossed off my “to do” list.
I hit rock bottom. My joint pain was debilitating so I couldn't play tennis or work out any longer. And my stress was through the roof! Then, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and was told to take Vioxx (a highly advertised anti-inflammatory drug). This didn’t sit well with me.
After all, I’d learned that stress, poor food choices, lack of self-care, and trauma were culprits of joint pain and brain fog.
Rather than choosing medication, I started experimenting with healing food, slowing down, meditation, and shifting my disempowering habits. And giving up on the impossible task of being everything to everyone!
With the support of my mentor Dr. Paul Epstein, and my weekly meditation group (20 remarkable women), I took baby steps to create new daily habits to prioritize my well-being which reduced stress. This entailed eating better, breathing better, and moving better. With consistent practice, I enhanced my happiness and health. It took a lot of patience, curiosity and self-compassion, and it has been worth it!
Now, I'm committed to helping women overcome obstacles that get in the way of feeling their best. It doesn't matter where you are now and what your story is. No matter what, I'll be your greatest cheerleader and guide on your wellness journey.
