I began my career in the health and wellness industry in 2001 as a Bodyworker.  Every day I would see my clients suffering from tremendous pain brought on by many different forms of physical disease.  It didn’t take long to make the connection between their physical pain and their emotional/spiritual health.  As an individual with a lifelong love for learning, I decided to look for answers and continue my education.  I wanted to find and master modalities that could help on the “holistic” person; body, mind and spirit. 
     For more than 15 years I have dedicated myself to studying and mastering many methods like; Emotional Freedom Technique, Spiritual Response Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Aromatherapy, Acupressure, Meditation, and so many more.  In many of these methods I found profound healing techniques and solutions for life’s difficult situations.  Alongside my private practice and wellness center, I worked to developed a variety of self-improvement programs and workshops designed to empower individuals with practical solutions to live a happier, healthier and more meaningful life. 
     It is my sincere desire as a practitioner, coach, teacher and ongoing student; that my studies, research, programs, workshops and wellness center will in some way add greater joy and “holistic” health to your life.
