APPROACH & STYLE
I am inquisitive, open-minded, supportive, and a good listener. I offer insight while encouraging the client to proceed with confidence. I approach health holistically, meaning all areas of our lives are connected and affect our well-being. My practice is focused on what works for you as an individual; I do not sell any products and I am not aligned with any particular dietary approach.
