Alive beings, such as you and I, require access to health resources and practitioners in order to thrive personally and then contribute positively to collective health.

FOOD MEDICINE

We are what we eat

Daily food choices become medicine when we know how to use food as an empowering tool for overall health.


Food as Preventative Medicine  

You can make subtle or significant shifts in day to day food choices to enhance health and uplift wellness. 

Food as Therapeutic Medicine  

Making changes to our diet is a key element when dealing with ongoing health concerns.  For any health concern food is a player in your healing and a medicine that is often overlooked.

I love working with people, making changes that feel possible, affordable and inclusive of the food you love to eat!  

ART

POETRY

The Grief Chronicles

Words expressed outward or inward help support our Qi flow. 

Poetry has become a way for release and attending to the most agonizing of aches, the grief and grieving of any loss in any form.

May these snippets of my own journey be ones that offer you company or solace.
