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 practical lifestyle management techniques, innovative coaching methods, and more than a hundred dietary theories 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, a leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Paul Pitchford, author of Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition; Donna Gates, author of The Body Ecology Diet; Dr. Natasha McBride, founder of the GAPS diet and author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome; David Wolfe, raw foods expert; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
I also studied at Heartwood Institute, where I gained a solid foundation in the healing arts, yoga, tai chi, and meditation while being immersed in a natural living community and lifestyle. In my time at Heartwood, I also had the good fortune to study elements of traditional Chinese medicine with Paul Pitchford.
My training and experience has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, preventive health, and various healing modalities. These skills, along with my knowledge of different dietary theories and more than 17 years in the holistic health field, enable me to work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
