My passion is integrating natural health and education to help people understand how they can improve their unique mind-body type.
My goal as a health provider is to:
Reinvigorate your body and remove toxins that are blocking vital energy
Aid your body in its natural course toward healing
Assess the whole person, not just the symptoms
Search for the underlying causes for imbalance.
I believe that humans are individuals and each one is influenced by a multitude of factors including diet, exercise, genetics, attitudes and spiritual believes. Everyone is unique and each illness reflects an issue that is exclusive to that person.
I am committed to using a wide variety of healing modalities and lifestyle options to help people utilize their internal resources, begin the healing process, and strengthen the mind, body, spirit connection.
In addition to my private practice in Santa Cruz, I teach local classes at Cabrillo College and Mount Madonna Institute of Ayurveda. I also serve as a faculty member for the Northern Star Academy of Holistic Studies and Kingdom College of Natural Health.
Previously, I served as a faculty member for the Global College of Natural Medicine and Vancouver Island College of Natural Wellness from 2005-2012, where I trained students to become nutritional consultants, herbalists, and holistic health practitioners.
