My work is guided by a desire to see my clients enjoy optimal health in mind, body, and spirit.

Life is challenging. We can all feel at times like we are dragging a little red wagon behind us filled with failures, trauma, resentments, anxiety or depression, heartache, or frustration from working at a job where you feel unfulfilled. At times you feel like you have no control. You may wake up during the night with your mind racing. Often it is difficult to decide where to start. You may feel misunderstood and wonder why you’re just not happy. You thought life would have been happier and more carefree. How did you get here? Now you are wondering: how do I get there? Peace of mind and happiness can be yours. Being in control and managing your own life is possible. I can help. I specialize in working with those who are seeking to change their current situation.

I am a traditional naturopathic doctor and clinical nutritionist who specializes in an energy psychology technique called Neuro Emotional Technique (NET). I have been practicing and training in NET since 1998, and my clients experience this to be the most amazing healing technique. They tell me how surprised they are at how quickly they find more control in their life. They express how safe and supported they feel during this growth work.

Our sessions together are based on YOU and your goals. They are opportunities for you to strengthen your health, let go of excuses and faulty behavior patterns, and acquire new life skills. Therapies I use in conjunction with NET are whole foods nutrition, homeopathic remedies and simple lifestyle changes that can dramatically improve the quality of your life.
