Healing is possible.
I am proof.
Through my own journey, plus working with many clients, I have learned that two of the biggest obstacles blocking wellness are stress & lack of support.
Working with me tends to both.
My greatest intention is to walk you home to yourself and help you see your sensitivity & intuition as your greatest strengths.
I am here to lighten your load. Getting where you want to be can be so much easier.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU FELT TRULY SEEN, HEARD, & CARED FOR?
Functional Medicine is based in science, just like Conventional Medicine, but it is a movement to improve our current healthcare model by finding and addressing the root causes of illness & imbalances in the mind & body. By doing so we can both prevent & reverse chronic health challenges.
Functional Medicine Health Coaching takes those principles, focusing on five lifestyle pillars – Nourishment, Movement, Sleep, Stress Resilience & Relationships/Support – and pairs them with positive psychology to set and achieve personalized wellness goals that matter to each client as a unique individual.
It is a truly holistic, patient-based approach that prides itself on spending the time to ask questions, investigate, and connect dots across the mind, body, & soul, making adjustments along the journey.
ULTIMATELY HEALING IS A TEAM SPORT, BUT YOU ARE THE MVP!
HOW OFTEN ARE YOU TAKING FULL BREATHS THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY?
The mind & body are inextricably connected and in two-way communication at all times. Mind-Body Medicine uses the power of the conscious mind, as well as body-based practices, to positively influence all systems in the body and how they work together.
Studies dating back to the 1960s found the very real impact of “Fight or Flight,” or the “Stress Response,” versus the “Rest & Repair,” or “Relaxation Response,” on physical health, and that research is growing exponentially. Mind-Body Medicine helps you retrain your brain & nervous system to be in relaxation & repair mode more easily & often.
Chronic stress & unresolved trauma are the biggest disruptors to our wellbeing, making Nervous System Regulation, or Stress Resilience, the absolute key, or foundation, to overall health. This is especially important for highly sensitive & chronically ill people, as it has the ability to extinguish over-reactivity and elicit balance & healing.
YOU CAN’T AVOID STRESS, BUT YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR RESPONSE TO IT.

Partnering on Your Wellness Journey
Individual, highly personalized sessions where we check-in and then decide together what would be most helpful to you. This can be anything from planning for an upcoming doctor's appointment to leading you in a guided meditation. I am here to meet you where you are and support your evolving needs.
Trauma Healing & Stress Resilience Course
Typically 8-week groups that meet once a week to learn a little of the "why," or science, behind the Mind-Body connection, with a focus on trying many different, easy to implement practices & tools. Lots of sharing & support, as well. The healing power of a group is very real!
Presentations / Chats
A great way to make Functional Medicine & Mind-Body Medicine wisdom accessible to many. I can speak broadly or we can find a specific topic that aligns with your intentions. This can be done via video chat or in-person at your wellness practice, office, school, or planned event.
