ABOUT ME

It wasn’t until my early 40's, when I was told by a health care professional that I probably had

PTSD from a medical diagnosis and treatment I received as a child. After that epiphany, I started to understand why I struggled with overwhelming periods of anger, anxiety, depression, and self-image issues for most of my life.  As an infant, I was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Surgery and follow-up radiation treatments left me with a disfiguring scar on my abdomen. The large scar and the birth mark on my face

were constant reminders that I was different. Reading through the 65 pages of my

childhood medical records from Massachusetts General Hospital was overwhelming but it finally allowed me to understand that buried deep in my subconscious mind were layers of childhood trauma and

fear.

I realized that if I wanted to keep helping others as a registered nurse and a health coach, I needed to be cognizant about how the trauma effected me and find new, healthier ways to cope with it.  I took time to dive deeper and embarked on my own self-care journey, reading, journaling, listening to podcasts from well known physicians and researching science-based methods and tools for self-care. I learned that accepting (instead of avoiding) uncomfortable feelings, changing daily toxic habits and altering my mindset allowed me to grow into my authentic self  and empower others to do the same.

As a Registered Nurse and Master Certified Health Coach, I am dedicated to guiding and motivating my clients to tap into their own unique skills, abilities, and potential so that they can take charge of their own lifestyle choices and invest in their greatest asset: health and well being!

I thrive on empowering people by teaching the correct knowledge, skill development, tips, tools, and encouragement so they can navigate their own journey and feel capable, balanced, confident, and successful while doing it. I use science-based research and reputable resources, combined with the knowledge I have

gained through my own personal journey and career path to help guide my clients to a healthier lifestyle.

I aim to help my clients create enough space to explore all areas of their life that need nourishing, including daily movement, nutrition, mindfulness, and more. Together we will explore your mind, how you react to your environment, why you avoid certain situations, and how you see yourself and show up for yourself daily. This will allow us to create a customized plan to meet your specific lifestyle goals and achieve the results you are looking for!
