About Me

 For a long time I considered the path of health as a steady road of making decisions and changes that would lead to my ideal physical body image.  As I have developed my self-awareness, I have changed this assumption dramatically.   I am someone that loves hiking and especially hold passion for taking advantage of Colorado’s challenging yet peaceful 14ers.  I find myself reflecting on the ways in which these climbs relate to my own health journey, as well as that of my clients.   For those that have been lucky enough to setout on one of these hikes reaching the 14,000+ feet peak, you may know that the path is not steady.  In fact sometimes there is no path at all.  There may be moments of calm valleys, followed by rocky switchbacks.  It may go from fairly level altitude, to on your hands and knees crawling up the steep, scaling rock.  My journey of health, like many, has been filled with bumpy terrain, sharp cliffs, and deep ravines along the way.  And despite this imperfect path, I have progressed, just like I reached those 14er peaks.  

My love for health and wellness has always been present, although the implementation in my younger years was focused on my size, and how well I felt in a bikini.  Now I would be lying if I said I absolutely do not care about my physical appearance. I am human.  And I value the ways in which our physical often tells a story of the internal.   However, I have discovered the interconnected amazingness of which we call our whole person; mind, body and soul.   I started my professional career in mental health, receiving my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology and obtaining my Licensure for Professional Counseling in Colorado.   Over the past decade I have thrived in various mental health roles and continue to feel passion in this work. 

A few years into my mental health practice, I was unable to ignore my drive in understanding the role of nutrition.   I nervously jumped back into school and after several years of balancing work and an intense training program, I obtained my certificate as a Nutrition Therapist, later completing my Master Nutrition Therapy certificate.   I have witnessed the power of mental health.  I have witnessed the power of nutrition.  Yet, I have continued to be part of a culture that separates and compartmentalizes the person.   My practice values the whole-person to get to a place of optimal wellness rather than symptom management.
