“For as long as I can remember I’ve had an insatiable curiosity for health and understanding the human body.  My awareness of healing and wellness drastically shifted after witnessing my dad go through a sudden heart attack when he was only 44 and I was in the 7th grade.  This opened my eyes to a whole new world and sprouted a passion for healing the body with holistic approaches.


In my late teens and early 20s I was introduced to the wellness and yoga scene while dealing with many chronic health issues.  This had a ripple effect and brought me to many amazing teachers and healers who helped me through a very dark period of my life.  I was dealing with many chronic health issues (high anxiety, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, spondylolisthesis, amenorrhea, skin issues & PTSD), which are now areas that I focus on in my practice.

During this period, I became frustrated with the pharmaceutical based approaches and the lack of any natural alternatives to address my health issues.  There was no strategy for prevention or seeking out the root cause. It wasn't until I stumbled upon an Eastern Medicine Doctor that I began to experience freedom from symptoms.  I was impressed with the relief I experienced and intrigued by the comprehensive and thoughtful approach that informs the treatments. Through regular healing sessions and a combination of nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, mindfulness, yoga and lifestyle changes, I began to heal and find resilience in all areas of my life; mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

My healing practice was born because I wanted to combine these modalities that were extremely effective in my own healing journey. In my darkest moments these healing practices gave my pain and emotions a purpose and they changed my life.


For the past 12 years I have embarked on a healing journey studying alternative healing methods that have brought me back to life. My mission is to share these practices with the world and help people heal, attune to the wisdom of their bodies, and allow for deep growth and transformation in all areas of one’s life. 


❈ I believe you know your body better than anyone else ever will.  I want you to feel empowered to take care of your own health, understand the process of healing and the many available paths to transformation.

❈ I believe in medicine that looks at the whole person and not just a collection of separate symptoms. I believe that everything is truly connected.

❈ I believe that our emotional and mental health are intricately linked with physical symptoms.  

❈ I believe in medicine that addresses the root cause and not only symptoms.  By treating the root cause, you will achieve lasting results and not be dependent on someone else for your health.

❈ I believe in medicine that inhabits the connection of science and spirituality.

❈ I believe we have an immense power to self heal, and that it is our personal duty to take an active role in our own healing and care. 

❈ I believe true healing involves a partnership that empowers both the patient and practitioner.  I deeply appreciate your trust in inviting my support on your healing journey.
