My innate curiosity for the natural healing arts has been the inspiration for many years of training and experience in wellness modalities. My interests has led me to study Culinary Nutrition, Aromatherapy, Flower Essences & Gem Elixirs, Herbalism, Stress Reduction, Medical Intuition, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and Therapeutic Massage.
I completed the Culinary Nutrition Program through the Academy of Culinary Nutrition in the Fall 2015. This experience was very empowering and nicely complimented the teaching and consulting approach I use with my clients.
Massage Therapy Certification & Holistic Health Teaching
I am a California State Certified Massage Therapist (CMT) having created the Wellness Program and Massage Therapy Certificate Program at Skyline College in the San Francisco Bay Area, teaching courses in Massage Therapy, Holistic Health, and natural healing modalities since 2008.
Certified Flower Essence Practitioner
I have been a Flower Essence Practitioner since 1988 having studied in various locations in the world. I received certification from the Flower Essence Society and the Australian Bush Essences and have completed the Practitioner Intensive Training with the Alaskan Flower Essence Project. Flower Essence therapy can be very beneficial when working with clients who have emotional eating disorders.
Professional Aromatherapy & Herbalism Training
My studies in Aromatherapy with Robert Tisserand, the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, Floracopeia, TARA Spa Therapy, and the East-West School for Herbal and Aromatic Studies along with my Herbalism studies with Rosemary Gladstar, KP Khalsa, the California School of Herbal Studies, and David Crow are incorporated into my nutritional counseling and holistic health teaching.
My Professional Approach
I derive great pleasure in sharing my passion for delicious good quality nutrition and the natural healing arts with my clients inspiring them to be successful in achieving their goals in the realm of personal discovery and holistic health. It is my desire to inspire and ignite each person’s passion for eating a nourishing diet and adopting life style habits that are most appropriate for them.
When not in the classroom, I enjoy being in the awe-inspiring beauty and healing power of nature while hiking and searching for wildflowers!
