Let’s just say I have had a very stressful life.  Childhood trauma, an alcoholic parent, drug addicted sibling, tension-filled constant-fighting first marriage. I was also a single parent caring for a disabled parent, and on and on and on. 


I didn’t know how to handle all that stress. I was an emotional wreck.   I went for counseling and listened to self-help teachings, but it took YEARS for what I was learning to move from my head to my heart. 


I’d love to be able to share that I applied the things I was learning right away, and everything was wonderful in a very short time.


However, that wasn’t the case.  I was angry, frustrated, confused, and stuck in a continual state of … “but”, “why”, “that’s not fair”, “why am I the only one”, “what about him or her” (depending upon who hurt me), “this isn’t going to work”, “God if you would just ____”.  I was addicted to negative thinking. 


My chronic negative thinking led to negative words which led to negative actions.  I repelled friends and family.  My health was deteriorating fast.  I didn’t realize that the continual chronic negative thinking was keeping me frozen in an unhealthy state. 


I was frustrated when I went through MY health crisis.  The areas of my expertise are from my experience with each one.  That's why I am so passionate about them.  I've been there.  I understand what you are going through.

I suffered from ...


... Adrenal Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, undiagnosed hypothyroidism for years, rapid weight gain, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome, pre-diabetes, prehypertension, hormone imbalance, endometriosis, IBS, Lyme, and Shingles.  I was an emotional wreck from years of abuse, neglect, and chronic stress.


I didn't find the help I needed so I spent 100s of hours researching health & nutrition, changed my diet, made lifestyle changes-- especially with how I managed stress, AND I fought for the (conventional medical) treatment I needed for my thyroid & hormones. 


By doing so, I reversed the Adrenal Fatigue, Insulin Resistance, Syndrome X, pre-diabetes, prehypertension, and IBS. 


My thyroid function and hormone levels improved through proper natural medications and through diet and lifestyle changes. 


I went back to school to learn more about the science, psychology, and spiritually of nutrition to continue to improve my health and so that I can help others do the same.

What is a Health Coach?

"Effective and successful health coaching is using a proven coaching process that works for everyone, everywhere, every time to help clients transform into the best, healthiest, most powerful version of themselves."

Real health coaching is about following a proven process and helping clients do more than just reach some basic health goals. It’s more structured and planned out than that. It’s about taking clients from where they are now to the best possible version of themselves.

Health Coaching is more than changing habits and setting goals.  It's about transformation.

Health Coaching complements, without intending to replace or ignore, the traditional areas of nutrition and medicine."  - Adapted from Institute of Transformation Nutrition

As a Certified Health Coach, I support my clients to achieve their health goals.


Whether it's to ...


  • Reduce and manage stress

  • Gain energy

  • Feel calmer and less anxious

  • Reverse Diabetes II

  • Reduce high blood pressure

  • Improve thyroid and adrenal function

  • Heal emotional pain

I'm here to help every step of the way.

I've taken the guesswork out of how to improve health.

I use a method of personalized care that moves beyond food and physical symptoms to explore and uncover root causes of dis-ease and unhappiness to help my clients live fuller, more fulfilled lives.


I'm here to listen and help my clients regain their health through teaching, supporting and holding my clients accountable for making healthy choices.
