I had begun to think my life might always be this way.
I started reacting to an endless number of foods in my 20s, and it did a number on my health. I was working long hours in the corporate marketing world, making my way through the ranks, and looked totally put together, down to my designer bag collection. But I struggled with anxiety and felt sick every day. It started with just a few food allergies but led to a system breakdown complete with stomach pains, mood swings, hives, panic attacks, and total exhaustion.
I saw doctors, allergists, naturopaths, and therapists, and took all kinds of pills. I felt crazy because my tests were “normal,” but I didn't feel normal at all.
I hated going outside without foundation on my face. I had 2-week periods even though I was on the pill. I was tracking my calories and macros because my body felt heavy and I didn't know why. Most nights, I had trouble eating dinner and frequently had to stop because I was so uncomfortable. I was scared I would feel sick whenever I ate and, honestly, I could no longer tell if the cause was anxiety or food.
But I wasn't ready to give up. I started looking at my food; I knew it was an important piece of the puzzle and, as someone who always loved every facet of food—growing it, cooking it, eating it—I hoped I could use my passion for purpose.
The more I learned about nutrition, the more I realized it could be my medicine.
I started creating simple, delicious meals that eliminated my midday crash and late-night snacking. I still ate dessert, but things that made me feel good. I worked on my mindset so that I felt safe when eating and started advocating for myself in social situations so I didn't eat something out of guilt and feel sick later. And I uncovered the root causes of my symptoms so I could heal my gut, absorb nutrients, poop daily, rebalance my hormones, and revive my adrenals from stress-induced burnout.
Becoming a holistic nutritionist made my dream of helping others heal a reality, and I have never stopped learning. I have incorporated a rich array of energetic and spiritual techniques and use my intuitive gifts to support your healing and growth. I continue to heal myself in new and expansive ways, learn from experiences, and develop new skills when I feel they will be helpful for you.
I want to help you feel rooted and safe.
That way, you can disconnect from what's blocking your healing and reconnect deeply with the most aligned version of yourself.
I used to be a competitive gymnast, but keep me away from any sport that involves throwing and catching.
