I’m here to offer you exceptional guidance in creating resilient thriving wellness.
I believe that the smallest changes have profound effects, and simple ordinary things can be the most powerful. Everything we do has value and matters. So, of course, I diligently crafted that concept into my professional work over the years! I repurposed the ancient saying, “How you do anything is how you do everything,” as a basis for my healthcare, wellness, and wilderness philosophy.
I’m an healthcare practitioner that integrates Functional Medicine, Oriental Medicine, Nutrition, and Lifestyle Medicine. I purposefully hold a wide perspective in healthcare diligently employing evidenced-based health answers that you can trust. The effective combination of laboratory testing and modern Functional Medicine coupled with several thousand-year-old holistic health modalities..and then some! Read more here.
I deliberately invested in multiple Nutrition Education and Training programs to have a comprehensive integrative focus. I even learned how to use food as medicine discovering my love of concoctions (A modern-day wellness alchemist!) Finally, blending in other wellness skills to create stronger support and impact.
In order to create and support effective long-lasting shifts, I studied health, mindset, and life coaching. By doing this, you work with yourself instead of just working on yourself; there is a huge difference!
In addition, I supplemented my skill by learning the most current behavioral change and effective habit creating methods. So, I get excited when I say: Not only can I help you with healthcare and wellness; BUT we can partner in coaching to create sustainable change!
We can build deeply embodied resilience with movement, meditation, breathwork, and relaxation practices. For over two decades, I have interwoven teaching and learning many practices and can help you in a highly effective and personalized way. Through this, I discovered that many health issues could be solved and improved with movement and breath. Movement and Stillness are truly their own form of medicine. Not just by moving our entire body; but focusing on our individual body parts! Something as simple as walking can have a tremendous effect on your wellness.
I am a low toxin living advocate who helps you create a healthy living environment and home space. This impacts the earth and everyone on it. Plus, changing your environment and making it more healthy can often be the solution to wellness issues.
I love wilderness and want to share nature’s amazing benefits with others so, I became certified in Forest & Nature Therapy: Forest Bathing. I also guide you on wilderness excursions in a challenging yet accessible way. In addition, I offer Get Wild with Nature Meditation experiences. I am an adventurer, and I go all in… I work with you that way too, so you apply that to your dreams and life!
Over time, I melded paths and methods together in a uniquely comprehensive way
Why? Because all aspects of life and ways of being impact wellness. Everything matters when we create a life we truly love. It may seem like a lot, but to me, it just seems like life. Read a list of my areas of knowledge Here. I love and have immersed myself in healthcare, wellness, and nature. I have lived it, applied it, studied it, and stayed up to date. I've taken on the risk for you.
Not only did I invest in evidenced-based practices; but I tested and tried them out for myself. I used all of these tools and methods over the years to transform my own wellness, health, and life. Believe me, I have had plenty of opportunities to do that too from injuries to illnesses to simply changing my life. Apparently, I started along this path at a very young age when I would make guide books, coloring books, and board games for my younger brothers in the areas of nature, science, animals, and eating!
It's like finding an auto mechanic. You want a mechanic that knows the whole car and how it works together. Not just how the radiator works. We humans have an interconnected system—each part of us impacts the rest. We impact the environment we live in, and it Impacts us too.
With a big picture approach, we find the root and look at patterns, not just symptoms
By applying this to my own life, I benefited incredibly. I've immersed in healthcare, wellness, wilderness, and self-coaching throughout my life, reaping the outcomes from doing that work. Let me share that with you.
In recent years, I experienced a severe injury that required almost four years of surgeries, procedures, therapeutic work, and self-care. During that time period, I walked a path of unwellness and discomfort. I was challenged, met many obstacles, and struggled immensely. I gave up a few times; but ultimately moved through creating wellness, resilience, and mindset shifts for myself that I continue to work on.
I am a writer, poet, and artist. While going through my recent accident recovery, I explored creative work through writing and art to support healing from my accident. In Writing and Artwork, I experienced over and over how much it supported creating outcomes I wanted in my life. Sometimes, we lose our voice when injured, unwell, or traumatized; doing creative work can give it back to us. We all have this part of us, and it is expressed differently for everyone. We can all benefit from the wellness and health that arise from creativity.
I came out on the other side functionally healed. Since then, I have become even more rooted in knowing everything I do for myself in my life mattered; especially my mindset and building resiliency.
It is powerful to be able to help yourself over and over. You can too.
I know that change is hard. Transformation is difficult and takes time, and that is okay. I know the challenges, but also how amazing producing the results and rediscovering feeling good is. I help you create opportunities turning obstacles into life-changing shifts!
Mostly, I want you to know that “I get it”.
I am immersed in this work and able to support you along your path.
Know that I don’t just tell you what to do. I partner with you and support you going all in so that you create meaningful and long-lasting change. Know that I am devoted to helping you achieve remarkable wellness. This is what I do, personally and professionally. Let me help you.
