How does the Holistic Nutrition approach work?

Working with a Holistic Nutritionist allows you the opportunity to learn through a variety of consulting and teaching methods.  You’ll learn how to target illness by avoiding foods or behaviors that could be problematic and replace them with foods and behaviors that cultivate energy production and allow your body to alleviate dis-ease from the body.  Along with your personalized Nutrition Power Plan, you’ll become educated on how to incorporate healthy lifestyle techniques to bring about improvements in overall health.

Holistic Nutritionists also recognize that no two people are alike.  We have a very diverse population and that translates into different dietary needs for different people.  I consider your Physiological and Biochemical needs to identify healing, energy-cultivating foods and nutrients to optimize your diet. 

Finally, as a Holistic Nutritionist, I understand that good digestion and good health are one in the same.  I work with you to make sure your digestion is strong and I tailor your diet to ensure we maximize your digestive potential.  I work with you to make sure your body is breaking down the foods you need and that your body can absorb the nutrients from the foods and supplements in your diet.  This process ensures we maximize energy production in your body!

My Story

I’ve been sick, I’ve been depressed and I’ve had enough of it.  You’re likely here because you’re ready for a change.  You’re ready to make changes to your health that will be sustainable and lasting.  Everyone can benefit from working with a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and I’m here to meet you where you are and pull you through your journey.  You can change your life with nutrition, and I’d be honored to show you the way!

My story begins with a tipping point.  Growing up and into my early 20s, I was following the Standard American Diet.  My body was highly acidic, my moods were down in the dumps, I suffered from fatigue daily, I ate fast food at least once a day and indulged in unhealthy, processed foods ALL THE TIME. 

At age 23, I was camping and woke up feeling as though I had been stabbed.  Little did I know at the time, I was having a severe gallbladder attack due to my poor diet and food allergies.  I tried everything Western Medicine offered me to fix my stabbing pains, but to no avail.  When my general MD at the time recommended I get a colonoscopy (remember, I was only 23), I knew there had to be a better answer!  That’s when I dove into Eastern Medicine and Holistic Nutrition and learned that food is medicine and there is a better way to a healthy body.

Fast forward 8 years later and now I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist helping people to energize their nutrition and lifestyle.  I've spent the last several years honing in my expertise and have over 1000 hours of study just in Holistic Nutrition.  My mission as a Holistic Nutritionist is simple, to help guide others on how to find their health and happiness via nutrition and lifestyle.  I do this through teaching holistic nutrition at the Energetic Health Institute along with educating my personal clients on their health and wellness.

I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to energize your nutrition and lifestyle, and show you just how amazing you can feel!
