I have been on an enlightening journey over the past several years, diving deeper and deeper into the world of Health, Wellness, and Sustainability. This has led me on the path of plant-based, whole food eating. My path has been especially illuminated after giving birth to my beautiful son, Wakinyan. I am a social and environmental peace activist and musician.
I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Blazing Star Herbal School (Ashfield, MA), and am always researching new material from various resources. My passion is driven by a love of life and Earth (Gaia) based consciousness!
Let us reroot back into balanced relationship with Gaia. I’m here to give you guidance on how to do this. My program will give you the tools and support to be all that YOU can be!

Holistic health incorporates whole body healing and acknowledges the interconnection of Mind, Body, Emotions, and Spirit. The systems of the body are usually seen as separate mechanisms, when in reality, all parts of ourselves need to be inter-dependent with each other and our environment. Holistic healing comes from discovering the root cause, as opposed to treating only symptoms. Lifestyle, career, relationships, stress, connection, and emotional state are all taken into consideration when asked, "What is causing imbalance in an individual?" Just as the systems in our bodies are interconnected, there is an interdependence between us, our home, our habitat, our Earth Mother, and our ecosystem. It is by divinity that for every ailment, the Earth provides a cure with her medicinal plants. As Hippocrates states: Food is medicine, and medicine is food!

The Gaia Hypothesis, also known as Gaia theory or Gaia principle, proposes that organisms interact with their environment to form a synergistic self-regulating, complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet. Earth Mother is a living being: Gaia. The concepts and practices I give you bring you back to resonating with Gaia.
