Helping others became my vocation when I decided to become a personal trainer/nutrition consultant. I did extensive training and received several 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 individuals 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 continued my Birth education 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 how my diet affected my health. My 14 years as a former vegetarian/pescaterian has exposed to me a huge variety of foods and this allows 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.
I focus on cultivating a beautiful and joyful life and help my clients to do the same. I live in gorgeous Silver City, New Mexico with my loving husband, Andrew, and our sweet pups, Niko and Elsa. Most of my time is spent dreaming, reading, gardening, hiking, dancing and exploring our fascinating community and nearby landscapes.
I work with clients locally as well as internationally, via phone and Skype.
