Summary/services offered:
I work with both adults and children, developing lifestyle and nutrition plans based on individual doshic balance of vata, pitta and kapha to overcome chronic health conditions such as gut health, arthritis, weight management, brain fog/memory issues, chronic fatigue, women’s health, hypertension, high cholesterol, allergies, constipation, hyperacidity, skin irritations, candida overgrowth and SIBO. I offer individualized detoxification programs, Ayurvedic therapies, herbal medicine and vibrational energy medicine.

What drew you to this profession? 
I suffered from a life-threatening bacteria that caused damage to all of my organs. My journey was long and hard until I found an Ayurvedic practitioner who guided me back to health. I began my formal studies in Ayurveda after finding balance again; it is now my life’s purpose to help others.

What sets your work apart from others in your profession?
I integrate vibrational sound therapy of the five elements as part of all treatment plans, as well as work one-on-one with clients, preparing a medicinal food recipe to be used as part of their wellness plan. It is the essence of using our food as medicine.

What should someone expect from working with you?
During my practitioner-level studies, I was immersed in the classical texts of Ayurveda. My knowledge is deeply rooted in these ancient teachings but my approach is breaking down the practices into accessible pieces for the world we live in today. The work we do together is focused on the current season and your time of life. The goal is to help you find harmony, health and balance with the natural world.

What changes do you plan in 2020?
As a mom of four children I am reminded daily how quickly children fall out of balance. Acne, stress, obesity, digestive problems and sleep issues are just a few symptoms I see when working with children. I will be adding workshops for parents, children and college students to provide Ayurvedic knowledge and tools to live in a balanced state of health at home, away at school or during summer camps.

What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
There is innate cellular intelligence in our food and the plants used in Ayurvedic herbal medicines. This intelligence is communicated with cells throughout our own body to obtain balance. This communication does not exist in chemically derived food or supplementation. When we employ the science of Ayurveda into the healing process, healing happens on both subtle and gross levels of the body, mind and spirit.
