Guidance and support on your path to optimal wellness

I strive to provide a caring and confidential space for you to discuss your health concerns and define your own path to health and wellness. As a holistic health practitioner, I work with people not diseases or illnesses. I take the diverse factors that affect your health and/or health conditions into consideration to develop a customized care protocol using botanical medicine, whole foods, health education, integrative care and advocacy.

During our consultations I'll often make recommendations and offer you tools for immediate support as well as preventative care suggestions for long term health.  My practice style is based on the models of eastern and western constitutional botanical medicine and grounded in clinical work that emphasizes the physiological, emotional, environmental, and social aspects of health. This holistic approach attends to the whole person and seeks to shift the underlying causes, patterns or imbalances of health, instead of merely a symptomatic approach. It is aimed at supporting your own individual body’s innate healing processes. This means you will receive recommendations and guidance tailored to your unique situation.

  • Cancer support- Pre and post surgery nutrition and planning, radiation and chemotherapy support
