“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Harriet Tubman
My dream is to help those with autoimmune conditions, chronic illness or weight issues regain their health through proper nutrition, movement, peace of mind and lifestyle modifications.
In 2015, I was in excruciating pain and couldn’t figure out why, neither could four medical professionals. They were all about pushing pills for pain and making me try physical therapy. After 5 months of PT and no progress, I decided to take my lack of health into my own hands and figure it out myself.
Next to having a baby and getting remarried, changing what I put into my body was the third best decision EVER! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could walk, live and play again! My life has changed for the better: little to no hip/back pain, lost 65 lbs, more energy and the desire to help others figure out how their diets can either feed or fight disease.
What Can I Do for YOU?
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), I can
- Look at what you are consuming and guide you to healthier eating.
- Assess your symptoms and issues to help you get to the root of your issues.
- Share resources for lifestyle adjustments: stress, sleep, movement!
- Provide a personalized eating plan!
- Listen, care, guide and empower you! I want to build you up NOT cut you down!
It sounds so simple, but it’s TRUE! Our bodies were designed to heal themselves when given the proper nutrients.
Why use a NTP?
Like I stated before, when I was in the midst of my medical drama, I felt like none of my medical providers were listening and definitely not caring about me. No one wanted to get to the root cause, they just wanted to cover them up and pretend it was all part of my amazing imagination. I was totally run down and just wanting a little guidance about what I could control and do for myself. Their responses were along the lines of:
Just move more and you will feel better.
Eat better foods and lose weight.
Take these pills, it will get better.
I really had no idea where to start or where to look. This is where a NTP can jump in and get to work with and for you!
I want to listen to your past and hear about your experiences. I want to learn about what you have tried in the past and what has helped, as well as what hasn’t. I want to help you make a plan to get back your vitality!

Tools I use:
I have a variety of tools that help me discover your strengths and weaknesses. Then I work with each person individually to set them up with a personalized protocol to follow as well as offering support and guidance along the way.
Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire: This is an online questionnaire that shares over 300 symptoms a person could be experiencing. I then run several reports to see where you need the most support. This can also help us get to the “root” of a problem instead of covering it all up with medications and other types of traditional treatments. Even though it’s over 300 questions, it goes quickly and the information can be very empowering. I can’t wait to share the results with you!
Food Journal: Don’t start sweating…I won’t judge you for what you eat since I’ve been there! I like to start with at least a 3-day food journal to see what you are currently eating and drinking. Journaling can also help you figure out what is working and not working for your body. It can also help you start to really listen to your body and try to hear what it’s telling you. It’s really talking to you all the time, but most of us ignore it!
Health History Questionnaire: This document helps me learn more about you, your health concerns and some family history. The Past Is The Past, but it can also help us connect so many dots.
Functional Evaluation & Lingual-Neuro Testing: This evaluation needs to be done in person, so if you live close to me, let me know if you are interested. At first, I thought this was WAY out there, but after learning more about it and the body, I find it totally fascinating. I now take a variety of supplements every day, which I have never done before, to assist with MY specific issues. There is a series of palpation points on our body that I tap into to see if you have any tenderness. If you do, then I choose a few supplements to test on you to see if your tenderness rating goes down by at least half.
Are you READY?
If you are anything like me and others who have gone through this intense process, it can be totally overwhelming. I remember being like a deer in headlights after reading what I should be eating vs. what I was eating. Eliminating foods and beverages have brought out feelings in me that I never thought I could deal with or handle. But I DID, and so can you! We can go at your speed with some gentle nudges from someone who has gone through the worst and the best.
