In my exploration to for health and wellness, I searched many healing modalities. I tried many things, like acupuncture, chinese herbs, chiropractic, reiki, energy healing, crystal healing and more practical concepts like the work of Virginia Satire. Virginia was a leading family therapist and developed many models to help family’s heal. If I found a technique that worked and it struck a chord in me, I studied it. Through this process I have a varied and wide resource network and also a lot of tools in what I call my tool box. That’s one of the great things about working with me, since YOU are you and there is no other you on this planet or in this universe, we will find those tools that work for you. Some people love hands on healing, some love talk therapy, some love playing with crystals and some just need support and someone to listen to them, so my work will be tailored for YOU. Within that, since we know we are what we eat, we will also tailor a diet that just right for YOU!
I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition‘s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education, along with my life experiences, has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I attended the graduate program of Psychic Horizons,which also allowed me to become an ordained minister. I attended a 4 year hands on healing school, Crossroads School of Healing, that taught among other things, Barbara Brennan‘s hands on healing, Carolyn Myss‘s Sacred Contracts and some basics in astrology. I am a Reiki master and completed levels I and II and levels II and III, in the Human Validation Process Model, through People Making of Colorado and pioneered by Virginia Satir. My real life experiences in managing a real estate office I was a partner in and selling real estate for over 27 years give me a background also contribute to my overall knowledge of balancing career, family and nutrition.
