“I love helping people create balance in their lives emotionally, nutritionally, and physically through teaching people how to live intuitively. This means that I believe each person has a different formula that produces a healthy balance in their lives. I assist people in assessing all areas of their lives, identifying which areas may be out of balance, and developing a solution-based plan to create the life they have always wanted.”
