I am a Functional Nutritional Therapist and received my certification from the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition School (FDN). I am also a Certified Health Educator and a Certified Hypnotherapist. Prior to my Functional Nutritional Therapy training, I worked in the healing arts for the past 12 years doing Massage Therapy and Hypnotherapy.
I was brought up in a very health and wellness oriented family and became interested in nutrition, holistic living, and mind body healing at a very young age. I have followed a solid holistic lifestyle for over 20 years and have read several hundred books on health, wellness and mind body healing.
After taking antibiotics for a long period of time in my early twenties, my health deteriorated and I went on a long journey of recovery, and Functional Nutrition, Hypnosis, and living a healthy lifestyle allowed me to restore function and recover and I am extremely passionate about helping others.
I live in Northern California and love spending time in nature, cooking, gardening, reading and have had a regular meditation practice for many years. When I am not working or blogging, I can be found hiking, kayaking, going to hot springs, or at the beach.
