I support my clients through some of the most difficult times in their healing journy, and am dedicated to their sucess and wellbeing every step of the way.
I know most of us have had it up to here, with navigating the dos and don'ts of healthy eating, trendy diets and the one size fits all approach of our current medical system.
Frankly so have I.
Having navigated my way through the medical system for the last 10 years with an autoimmune disease, I finally gave up and turned to Holistic Nutrition to cure my autoimmune disease and toxic body.
Those trendy diets and easy detox teas have there place but I know you are looking for real authentic and lasting changes in your life or you wouldn't be here.

I do believe in making sustainable changes that will leave you feeling empowered, energized and confident in your own ability to maintain optimal health and happiness.
Are you ready?
Together we can build you a solid foundation of optimal health.
I believe in your body's ability to heal.
I believe in you.
What is Holistic Nutrition?
Fueling your body
The foundation of optimal health really starts with fueling your body with the right foods and supplements that it needs to heal dis-ease and truely thrive. This is done through assessing and addressing the root causes of dis-ease or the healing challenges that you may be facing right now and creating a simple yet powerful nutritional action plan.
What we eat is equally important to having a healthy relationship with food and ourselves. Taking a deeper look into the emotions that may be holding you back from living your best life and patterns of negative thinking, are critical to making long-lasting impactful changes and getting you unstuck emotionally and physically.
Self care Rituals
Creating space for intentional movement, mindful moments, meditation, nature walks, gentle yoga or healing baths allow you to get present with your body, deeping into alignment and re-connecting with your vibrant self. Self care is not a luxury it is a necessity when it comes to living your best life and a critical part of healing in the holistic nutrition model.

Lost in the medical system?
Looking for lasting change?
Feeling like no one else gets it?
You have landed here for a reason. That reason is you are not alone.
I get it. I lived it.
I landed here as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, working with clients just like you due to my own health challenges
that started at a very young age.
We all have our own healing story.
I had been dealing with thyroid issues since I was in my teens and diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis,
which is an autoimmune condition at the age of 19.
I knew little about autoimmune diseases and made no changes to my diet or lifestyle. No doctors told me what autoimmunity was or even what was happening inside my body.
As a result, I continued to live out my twenties binge eating, partying and working as much as possible to get ahead in life and make my way through university, leading to adrenal fatigue and burnout.
Almost a decade later at age 28, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer which completely flipped the switch for me.
The C word changed everything for me.
Thyroid cancer was my rock bottom but this diagnosis was also the biggest blessing in disguise, as many people
may never see their “C word” diagnosis as a gift, it really gave me a way out.
A new way of being was on my horizion.
It was my pivot point.
A catalyst of massive change.
A call for radical action.
I shed who I was almost entirely, letting it all go, like an animal shedding last season's coat.
The things I was doing, toxic friendships, negative work environments and the things I consumed both physically and energetically,
I let it all go.
I re-evaluated everything I put into and onto my body.
Since that day everything has shifted in my life.
I left my high-stress job never looking back and went to school full time at The Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto to become a Certified Holistic Nutritionist.
Now at age 31, I’m living with the best version of myself and I love that I have been given the opportunity to impact the lives of others.
I hear you.
I see you.
I am with you.
Seasons are considered a source of natural diversity that form the natural backdrop for eating. Our eating habits should change with the seasons. Our bodies crave warm, comforting root vegetables in the winter and fresh green salads in the summer – that’s traditionally all that was available for us. However, today with access to everything year round, it’s easy to forget about the importance of the seasons when we eat.
Eating with the seasons is one of the best ways to stay in rhythm with nature, get nutrient rich produce, connect with our community at local markets and feel our grounded and nourished.
Nutrient rich meals
Eating nutrient rich foods goes far beyond just "eating your greens". A deepened understanding of the nutrient and minerals required by the body's many processes allows me to create customized meals that not only taste great and are fun to make, but provide the body with the much needed vitamins, minerals and fuel it needs to recover from and illness, improve energy levels, balance hormones, improve mood and assist in weight loss.
food for everyday health
Preparation is key to success in all areas of life but especially in the kitchen when it comes to making healthy choices. My meal recommendations are realistic and adaptable to everyone, regardless of cooking abilities, confidence in the kitchen and dietary restrictions. I believe in making lasting changes sustainable and am committed to helping you take the stress out of eating.
Reiki and Energy Healing
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique based on the principle that the practitioner can channel healing energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being and vitality. The practitioner acts as the conduit through which this healing energy flows and is transferred to areas of the patient's body that have imbalance and dis-ease.
What should you expect?
My one on one healing sessions are very transformative, unique, and specifically channeled for each individuals needs. I work using intuition and feedback with a variety of tools including musical instruments, sounds, crystals, and different guided meditations to help facilitate a deep healing and energetic renewal.
