Hi! I'm glad you're here...
In my relatively short, but very full life, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are no coincidences, and that each person that crosses our path has something of great value to share with us. My greatest hope is that everyone with whom I’ve connected walks away feeling inspired and empowered to create a life that they are madly in love with.
As a Holistic Health Coach and Wellness Writer, I spend my days immersed in all things health and happiness, but this wasn’t always the case. I grew up in a troubled home in which I experienced a great deal of abuse and trauma, and by my late teens, I was struggling with severe depression and anxiety. After many years of allowing self-destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to dominate my life, I realized that I not only wanted a different kind of life for myself, but that I, and I alone, had the power to create the life I envisioned. I decided that it was time to start turning my life around and it was then that I set out on my journey towards healing.
After graduating from UC Berkeley with Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Sociology in 2004, I took a position as a research interviewer in which I learned the art of active listening and uncovered my passion for connecting with others as they share their stories with me. I went on to study Clinical Psychology at the graduate level and trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist, but ultimately left my program to pursue a career that would both allow me to more fully engage my unique set of skills and support my own health and happiness.
I eventually found my way into writing and developing compelling content on the topics of fitness, nutrition, spirituality, and holistic health practices for wellness-oriented brands. I was so inspired by the incredible impacts that my clients were having on the world that I decided to enroll in a Health Coaching certification program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®. During my course of study, I learned about a broad spectrum of dietary theories, approaches to fitness, alternative healing practices, and methods for supporting deep and lasting wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
I feel so incredibly privileged to be able to support my clients on their healing journeys, to help them visualize and manifest their dreams, and to encourage them to live their lives from a place of vibrant authenticity. If you're ready to heal your life from the inside out, then I would be absolutely honored to work with you. Let’s get started!
