Over the course of 10 years, I have worked with thousands of people to help them strengthen their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. I offer a unique approach to my coaching and energy work, fusing traditional and alternative modalities to actually process emotional wounds, reprogram the subconscious, rebalance the body's energy systems and creating lasting change with regards to how one thinks, feels and behaves.

My discovery of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) was a monumental turning point in my own recovery and transformation, and I have since become trained in the technique to use with clients, yielding just as profound results. I am also certified in The Emotion Code, which is a revolutionary method designed to locate trapped emotions in the body that manifest in physical, mental or emotional issues and remove them in a quick and noninvasive way.
I have a wealth of professional and personal experience in the realm of eating psychology, mental health treatment and health coaching. I developed and directed an intensive day treatment program for binge eating disorder at UCSD's Center for Healthy Eating and Activity Research (CHEAR) and was a researcher at Yale University's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. I also previously saw therapy clients in a private practice in downtown San Diego, and most recently was the Director of Behavioral Health at Premier Fitness Camp in Carlsbad, CA, where I helped individuals improve their health habits, mindset, self-confidence and other internal factors affecting their well-being.
I have an M.A. in Marriage & Family Therapy from The University of San Diego and a B.A. in Psychology from Syracuse University.
With over 8 years experience in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, fitness instructor and health coach, I understand the power of the mind-body connection and how imperative it is to address the underlying mental and emotional factors that may be at the root of one's physical, mental and emotional issues.
My passion to help others restore health and well-being comes from my own struggle with my body, eating and food. I suffered from Bulimia and disordered eating for over 5 years. Through my difficult recovery process, I became motivated to turn my pain into purpose and committed to help others suffering so they too can achieve freedom from pain and feel good again.
+ Address what's at the root of your issues to end your struggles with eating and learn to like, if not love, your body. This is the shadow work necessary for wholeness.
+ Remove or repair mental, emotional and energetic blocks and wounds so you can experience a greater sense of well-being, inner peace and happiness.
+ Learn how to utilize energy work on your own so you can effectively feel and free emotional energy, rather than turning to food to self sooth and fill inner voids.
I offer a unique perspective and approach to my energy work with clients that can be applied to any mental, emotional or life issue that is affecting one's quality of life and well-being.
