My journey began by following my love of learning how things work and problem solving. This love led me to earn my degree in Biochemistry. Years after graduating from Rutgers University and working in the field of Biochemistry, my journey into holistic health began as a mom learning all that I could to help my children overcome their sensory processing challenges. When my children were doing well in all areas of their lives, and it was clear that our hard work had paid off, I continued my passion for health by helping others to address the underlying cause of their own health issues, getting well instead of ending up with more drugs, more complications and never getting to the root of the problem.
In 2012, I began to study nutrition and holistic wellness at Wellness Simplified in Morristown, NJ. Continuing my education to become a Certified NES Health Bioenergetic Practitioner in 2015, I learned about the important role that energy plays in the body, facilitating communication between each cell and the rest of the body, so that each cell responds to what is happening elsewhere in the body at every moment.
Wanting a deeper understanding of Chinese Medicine, which serves as the basis of NES Health Bioenergetics, I continued to learn what I could about the role of energy in the body and its relationship to our health, both physically, mentally and emotionally. As a practitioner in Balancing the 5 Elements of Chinese Medicine, I can address imbalances in energy flow within a client’s organ systems and calm the negative emotions associated with each organ.
Traumatic life experience(s) are often at the root of many of my clients' health issues, which isn't surprising since it is estimated that two out of five people have experienced some type of trauma in their lives. These emotional or physical traumatic experiences wreak havoc on their nervous systems, setting off a cascade of chronic health issues. In order to better serve these clients, I have sought out specific training, learning more effective ways to help address the effects of trauma on the health of both the minds and bodies of these clients. Besides researching all topics health related, I enjoy spending my time in the garden growing organic food, cooking, photography, quilting, hiking, camping and caring for my family.
