Philosophy + Approach
I teach & practice a holistic approach to health and wellness. My favorite way to define "holistic" is to use the metaphor which compares the approach of Western allopathic medicine (think hospitals, surgeries, pharmaceuticals) versus holism (whole-ism); the difference between a mechanic inspecting a car, looking at each working part as individual and separate, and a gardener noticing how the amount of sun, shade, heat, moisture, phases of the moon, and quality of soil all contribute equally to the overall health and harmony of the garden. While it's true that some plants have specific, individual needs, these macro- "nutrients" have a much greater influence on the health of all plants.
My approach to health is that of the gardener, taking note that imbalances in certain lifestyle habits such as sleep, relationships, movement, nature, and joy often play an equal or greater role in one's health than food!
Holistic Wellness Sessions
You're welcomed into a comfortable and supportive environment, offered a cup of herbal tea, invited to breathe, unwind, and release any tensions from the day, and then together we will have an in-depth conversation around your health--story, history, journey, and intentions & goals.
I like to inquire deeply into habits and patterns around food, relationships, movement, sleep, and general day-to-day lifestyle. Expect to delve far beyond diet & exercise!
You will walk away from the consultation* with a holistic perspective of your current state of health and simple & sustainable food and lifestyle upgrades and actions that we come up with together.

It's hard to cover an entire lifetime of habits, patterns, and aspirations in one visit! While you are welcome to schedule consults on a session-by-session basis, it is often beneficial to commit to a wellness program for consistent check-ins, accountability, questions, troubleshooting, and more.
