I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Oregon and an Advanced Spiritual Response Technique Practitioner. I earned my Masters degree in Spanish Literature from the University of Arkansas and am able to intuitively read the body’s stories in a multi-sensory way. I earned Reiki Master level through a mentorship program with Energy Intuitive, Susan Tate while here in Eugene and for the past twenty years have been teaching and practicing in my field. I look at client health not only from a physical perspective, but from emotional, mental, and spiritual perspectives as well. I always turn to nature and food as medicine first. Mental health in particular is an important part of my practice in helping people to connect foods to moods so that they can live a happier, more balanced life. Both the healing arts and teaching arts have always been an integral part of my work.
Whether working in a group or individual setting, I focus on bio-individuality of clients to tap into the root of their health questions. I work to identify the nutritional, lifestyle and supplementation protocols that will best help to alleviate symptom burden. I am passionate about helping my clients find relief and heal from the effects of poor gut health, diabetes and mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADHD and panic attacks. I am certified in amino acid therapy for mental health as well as able to offer therapeutic diets through Julie Matthews and the BioIndividual Nutrition Institute. I also offer a variety of classes to help enhance client outcomes through education and mindfulness based activities.
I am a professional member of the Nutritional Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. For the past twenty years I have been teaching and practicing in her field as well as dedicated to helping Spanish speaking communities.
