Welcome

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, caught up with perfection, stressed-out, over-committed, exhausted or don't have time to care for yourself, you have come to the right place. I can relate! 

Up until ten years ago, my daily routine consisted of maladaptive 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, lacking in self-compassion and suffering from severe discomfort in my joints.  The perpetual smile on my face was not authentic.  

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia by an Orthopedist who told me 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 trauma were culprits of joint pain.  

Rather than choosing medication, I started experimenting with slowing down, creating awareness around my negative habits, and paid attention to how my choices effected me on a physical and emotional level.  I also incorporated meditation into my daily routine. I was shocked to discover that small shifts quickly reduced my stress and join pain, allowing me to more fully enjoy my family and day-to-day life. 

Throughout this journey, I attended Food as Medicine Training, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Class, Internal Family Systems Training along with a host of additional empowering programs.  I also studied with my mentor Dr. Paul Epstein, a world renown naturopath and mind-body professor. He is 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 clients reconnect with their internal wisdom, and live a vibrant, fulfilling life. If I did it, I know that you can too. Everyone has the ability to change. 

Show up for yourself! Take that courageous step to reach out and discover the best version of yourself.

I still love my coffee, wine and candy, though I choose to enjoy them in a more mindful way!

With compassion and gratitude,

Jen
