WHY I DO WHAT I DO
During my teens and 20s, I struggled with depression and binge eating. After feeling at war with food and my body for years, I slowly started to take the steps to heal myself, and then my relationship with food.
Years later, an autoimmune condition began affecting my skin with large inflamed rash-like breakouts. I spent years going back and forth with doctors who had no idea what was wrong with me and just prescribed steroids and antibiotics.
I knew I had to advocate for myself if I truly wanted to heal by getting to the root of the issue. I found that nutrition, movement, and my nervous system were all connected. This inspired me to look at health, nutrition, and healing from a complete holistic point of view. I knew I wanted to begin to create the safety my body needed to heal.
Through education, changing my nutrition & lifestyle, and working with the right practitioners, and a lot of f*ing patience, I was able to heal at the root. But my journey isn't finished! I am still working on healing, one day at a time.
This is why I am SO passionate to help other women with their health struggles. My clients have so much more space to live their life with ease without being stressed or obsessed with food. Time & freedom. Less angst, worry, stress with food. More excitement with taking care of themselves. More energy to live their life and THRIVE!
