Born in 1975 and raised in Maryland, my health issues started early. I had undiagnosed food allergies, which led to chronic respiratory infections and year-round antibiotics (age 2-17). Multiple tick bites from hiking and playing in the woods damaged my immune system further, triggering autoimmune disease. I was also a binge-eater from childhood through my 20s. I was diagnosed “type II bipolar” as a teen, which was changed to the milder diagnosis of “cyclothymia” in my 30s.

I began my epic healing journey at 17, seeking holistic alternatives to mainstream medicine and diet. I began studying nutrition, massage, meditation, yoga, fitness, psychology and Eastern Philosophy. I changed my diet in 1993, which cleared up my asthma, eczema, and chronic sinus infections.

In 1995, however, a car accident with repeated sideways whiplash triggered head and neck injuries and full-blown Lyme disease: a long list of mysterious viral and neurological symptoms, which changed over time (and went undiagnosed until 2020). I started getting massages regularly in 1997 and began my massage training in 1998. After working at day spas and resorts, I launched my home-based massage practice in 2007.

Living in Austin, Texas 1999-2016, I was exposed to very high levels of toxic molds and heavy metals, worsening all my symptoms. It was my self-care, daily energy practice, and anti-inflammatory diet that enabled me to function, getting only 5-star reviews in my massage practice, despite the pain I was pushing through to help others feel better.

As my repetitive strain injuries from massage worsened, I trained in Reiki energy healing (2010-2012) and began to practice Qigong (energy cultivation & moving meditation). I expanded my scope of practice in 2011 to include Holistic Health Coaching, which helped me shift my mindset from “live to eat” to “eat to live”. I stopped eating sugar and started studying brain health in my free time, seeking new ways to work with my own brain health issues and my mom’s early-onset Alzheimer’s.

In 2016 I relocated to Tucson, where I re-launched my practice and trained in Tuning Fork Therapy. During the pandemic, I closed my massage studio for good, became a Certified Brain Health Coach, and Level III Qigong & Breathwork Instructor. I also took a much-needed sabbatical, working just a couple hours a week from 2020-2022. I’m now 3 years into a 5-year holistic treatment plan for toxic mold and chronic Lyme. I’m living proof that what we eat really matters, and how we live can be poison or medicine.

The more I learned about energy medicine and flow-state consciousness, the more I realized I could help clients experience more ease and flow by applying energy healing principles in daily life. The more I learned about brain health, the more I could help clients work with their mental health issues, rather than feeling ashamed or fighting their own minds.

My favorite people to work with are women aged 30-60. I especially love working with “black sheep,” creatives, empaths, highly sensitive people, and those who are navigating big life changes like divorce, menopause, death/grief, or caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s. I also love helping women break free from disordered eating patterns like bingeing, emotional eating, sugar addiction, and other dysfunctional coping methods, so common in our culture.

High quality nutritional supplements can be game changers to your health, but only if you can afford them. One of the benefits of working with me is that you get discounts on nutritional supplements, from the huge selection at FullScript to the high-end gut health & immune system support from MicrobiomeLabs and Biocidin.

I’ve had many hours of training from these product lines, so when you buy from me, you’re not just buying bottles of pills, you’re also getting clear guidance on how to use them.
