Helping others became my vocation when I decided to become a personal trainer/nutrition consultant. I did extensive training and received diplomas from Premier Training International in the UK.
In 2001, I started my life coaching practice (with the help of Mentor Coach Drew Rozell), and began working with individual and couples to create conscious, loving relationships. In 2005, I was certified as a Body-Centered Relationship Coach by the Hendricks Institute.
I became an EFT Practitioner and completed my AAMET Level 3 training in 2007 and my Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner training with EFT Master Karl Dawson in 2008. Meeting my delightful husband, Andrew, brought up all sorts of early trauma, so I was very busy working on myself as well as helping my clients.
Birth has been one of my passions since college. I studied books about natural childbirth and breastfeeding, made friends with midwives and frequented online forums for expecting moms.
In 2007, I brought together my enthusiasm for EFT and my passion for birth and began working with pregnant moms, helping them clear distress to create a more peaceful pregnancy and an easier birth. EFT and Matrix Reimprinting are fabulous tools that empower and transform my clients.
From 20o8 to 2011, I learned from many wise birth folk and continuing my Birth education by taking advanced Doula training with Whapio Diane Bartlett, the founder of The Matrona Midwifery school.
In 2010, I was the EFT presenter for the Trust Birth Conference. I finally got to meet Laura Shanley, founder of the Bornfree site, Dr. Sarah Buckley, OB-GYN, mother and author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering and Carla Hartley, the founder of the Ancient Arts Midwifery Institute and many others.
I’ve had a lifelong passion for nutrition and started integrating it even more into my practice after I discovered ancestral/evolutionary nutrition in 2009 and saw first-hand how my diet affected my health. My 14 years as a former vegetarian/pescaterian have exposed to me a huge variety of foods and this helps me to work with a huge variety of people. I’ve had wonderful success helping my clients balance their hormones, regain fertility and eliminate many health issues with a whole-foods diet and a few key supplements.
These days I focus on cultivating a beautiful and joyful life and help my clients to do the same. I live in beautiful Tucson, Arizona with my loving husband, Andrew, and our sweet pups, Niko and Elsa. Most of my time is spent dreaming, remodeling, gardening, hiking , dancing and exploring our quirky and creative community!
I work with clients locally as well as internationally, via phone and Skype.
