A little bit about me

Hi!  Thank you for visiting!

I have always been interested in wellness and feel very passionate about helping others.  Bringing the two together helped me to find work that I love.

Yoga was a lifeline for me during a challenging time in my life,  and my yoga practice and eventual yoga training opened many bright doors for me.  

I obtained my yoga training from Seven Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona, Arizona in 2006.

I experience great joy when sharing yoga knowing how integral it has been in my life, and seeing that magic evolve in the lives of others who fall in love with the practice.

My interest and exploration of different forms of healing and paths to well-being evolved into an excitement and interest in massage therapy. I completed my training in massage at Sedona School of Massage in Sedona, Arizona in 2009.

I feel honored to help to create an experience and environment during massage where people can turn inward and take pause from the fast and busy pace of our world. 

This often leaves space where deep healing, reflection, and relaxation can occur.

I became intrigued by the psychology around relationship with food from the start of my nutrition studies at the University of Nevada, Reno.  This later turned into a passion to work with those struggling with eating disorders, and a connection to the path of intuitive and mindful eating. 

I started work in the field of eating disorders in 2010, and became a registered dietitian in 2015. 

So much of eating disorder recovery is a turning back to the wisdom of the body and discovering what has gotten in the way of that, including the many messages that we are exposed to daily that say that our bodies are not acceptable as they are.  

I also love the opportunity to work with those who do not have an eating disorder, but are seeking more balance and peace in their relationship with food, and potentially desiring to set out on a new path free of diet mentality.

There is a true beauty in watching the transformation that can happen for people around food.  I am honored to bear witness and offer gentle guidance to the journey of turning back to inner wisdom, all paths leading to the discovery of true satisfaction and nourishment.  

So much can nourish us and help us to live our best life every day. 

I'd love to hold space for you for nourishing experiences, and walk with you as discover what true nourishment looks like for you...

Namaste
