Holistic Health & Nutritional Counseling

     holistic nutrition, health, wellness, health counseling, hudson valley Why do I do what I do? I struggled with my own health crises for some time before attaining my own level of balance and well-being. I went through a period of time where my body could barely tolerate water and my emotions were seemingly beyond my control. My mind was cloudy, my body was tired, and my spirit felt defeated. Dealing with my own emotional and physical trauma led to valuable discoveries and insights into how one’s body, mind, and spirit functions and how the process of healing takes place. My story is akin to many others, and with my knowledge, gained wisdom, intuition, and empathy, I feel committed to helping others reach their own state of bliss. I know the path is meandering, inconsistent, and shaky, though I believes health, wellness, and fulfillment are accessible to everyone.

I graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Human Services and a specialization in Counseling Psychology. I later earned my certificates as a Certified Natural Health Counselor and a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. Additionally, I am a certified Reiki practitioner.

I integrate basic concepts into my healing techniques. I believe in the importance of water, nutritive food and herbs, sleep, and movement. I differentiate between a crisis of emotion, of spirit, or of body and I understand integrally how those relate. I enforce the importance of breath, of pH balancing, of digestion and elimination, and of the health of your glandular, respiratory, immune, circulatory, and nervous systems. I incorporate talk therapy, energy healing, muscle testing, Ayurvedic concepts, and mindfulness practices into my sessions.  My objective is to provide recommendations to stimulate healing in clients, so that they can equip themselves with the tools necessary on their own paths. I don’t intend to diagnose conditions or prescribe medications, but rather to focus on supporting organs/emotional and spiritual balance/healthy holistic lifestyles to promote long-lasting healing from within. Our bodies are capable of optimum health if we allow them to function properly and treat them with kindness.
