How to get your mojo back

If you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed, lighten the load and find the source of the stress before you do anything else.

Whether it’s work, a personal conflict, too many things on your plate, or too many demands on your time from family or friends, you need to pinpoint the reason and take action.

Given the stress, fast-paced, and busyness in our daily life, then put on top of that the past few years of isolation, lack of physical contact for some, face-to-face communication, floods, and fires no wonder we feel this way which can result in our immune system has been compromised.

I am seeing more and more people in my clinic with issues such as anxiety, digestive complaints, hormonal imbalances, fertility concerns, and autoimmune diseases that are often related to stress and exhaustion.

How can I help you?

With the help of a coach or counselor you can get a better perspective and feedback on what things, you can let go of or find ways to change.  Very few things in life are worth the physical and emotional toll of chronic stress.

I am an experienced practitioner with over 30 years of experience in all aspects of mind-body integrative health through Eastern and Western Nutrition, Dietotherapy, Naturopathy, counseling, coaching, and Relational Psychotherapy.

One of my special interests is how fermented foods can play a part in how we can heal different aspects of the mind and body whether it be immunity, gut health, mental health,  the microbiome, and/or hormonal health, and much more.

My lifelong work is based on my own personal journey and experience of years of poor gut health, fertility issues, and low immunity. A total body-mind approach turned my health around.

This gives me a unique perspective when managing health concerns with clients. I create a holistic individual treatment plan for each person. These are evidence-based with a ‘food as medicine foundation which can incorporate herbs, nutritional support, and lifestyle through counseling according to each individual’s needs.

We all long for something or some way to take us outside our physical, mental or emotional suffering and avoid the experience of life’s unpredictable transitions.

A counseling, coaching, or psychotherapy relationship provides an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, hopes, and desires and make sense of what you no longer want or need in your life, what you want to embrace or change, and how to make this transition so you can move forward.
