Hello and Welcome! I work with families who desire a holistic approach to helping their child who has a chronic health condition or learning, behavior and/or emotional challenges and families who simply want better health all around.

When you are on vacation, do you give yourself permission to get out of your every day routine, relax and slow down?

Or, maybe it’s the weekend and you find it hard to unwind from the hustle and bustle?

Sometimes it’s hard to break out of routine and responsibilities of every day life but it’s important for our mind-body health to do so especially on vacation. This is a time to slow down and let your mind and body renew and refresh.

It is during these pauses that we often can hear our inner voices guide us on life’s path.

Often, taking these pauses actually lead to better productivity in our jobs and deeper connections in our relationship with others and most importantly, with ourselves.

These pauses can benefit your physical health as well. When we nourish our brain health with calm, we also nourish our gut health with relaxation which can improve our immune system.

When I’m at the beach, I wake up early as I do at home but a little later than my normal. I listen to my body. I still exercise but instead of doing a more intense run or walk along the neighborhood streets, I choose to walk the beach at a slower pace and really soak in the views and ocean air. I also take some time to read before heading back to the house for breakfast. These are just a couple of the ways I break from a normal every day routine.

It’s not always easy to change a routine for a few days. Give yourself permission to simply, pause and within that pause, listen to what your mind and body needs.

And if not on a vacation, create your own pause days at home.

Model and guide this concept of “power of the pause” for your children and teens as well. They also need a break from routine and to calm their own minds and body.

Wishing you all a fun and healthy July 4th!

Enjoy your favorite foods and even indulge! It’s one day. Make choices, own it and savor it!

This is a form of healthy!
Moderation not deprivation.

Spending time with friends and family and truly taking a break from daily responsibilities. This is also part of being healthy.

Taking a few moments in your day to reflect on what this day really represents historically and for yourself. Close your eyes and breathe. What are you truly grateful for? This is also health!

Cheers to Freedom, Family, Friends and Health!

Avoid toxic pesticides in produce

Excellent Information about the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen to help guide you which produce to purchase organic.

For me personally, if I am purchasing from a local farm who doesn't have the "organic" certificate (which is very costly) but is able to explain their clean farming process, then that is where I will make an exception and not buy organic.

What are your favorites that are on each list?

Natural Support for Seasonal Threats

Support seasonal threats naturally so you can enjoy a springtime walk and keep the windows open!

APRIL...The month I like to think about the word "growth."
We see blooms growing on the ground and on trees. We feel the temperature slowly growing from cold to warmer. (at least here in VA) The days grow longer with more sunlight. And...for me personally, I grow...older. It's my birthday month!

I've always been one to embrace and celebrate my birthday and new age. Outwardly, with each year passing, we "change" but inwardly I prefer to view a birthday as growth. Growth takes time and care, patience, twists and turns. Growth is a force of nature, can feel light and/or powerful. Growth is wellness. Growth is everlasting.

With each year, no matter what new age we are, we grow stronger and wiser, we grow new habits, beliefs and passions, likes and dislikes. We grow new relationships with others and most importantly, with ourselves. We grow our minds and expand our hearts. We grow to get to know our own selves better.

Growth comes with special ingredients. Just like blooms need seeds, water, sunlight and soil. We need basics like pure water, nourishing fresh foods, clean air, movement and we also need to
believe in ourselves,
be curious to learning new knowledge,
surround ourselves with uplifting and like-minded people,
discover new discoveries,
accept failing,
be courageous to create new habits and try new things,
be excited to visit new places,
find the fun and joy,
embrace meeting new people,
trust the universe around us to act as a guide
and allow time to pause and be grateful.

All of this helps us grow into our next moment, day, month year and our next age. So, while we watch beautiful colors come into our view this month of April, lets also embrace and acknowledge what is needed to grow ourselves and enrich our lives with our own uniqueness, just like each petal on a flower.
As a health coach for tweens and teens, I encourage you to guide your child to embrace their moment of time, their own growth and all that is needed to grow within their special selves.

I will be celebrating my 48th birthday this month and can't wait to see what blooms this year.

Just refilled my DIY non-toxic, easy to make, cleaners. Makes me feel so good to have this option and adding essential oils makes them smell so good and fresh!

Did you know that harsh chemicals/fragrances in many typical household cleaners may have a negative impact on your health? Many of these harmful ingredients have been linked to respiratory cellular health, immune, digestive, reproductive, hormone, neuro and behavioral challenges, just to name a few, in both adults and children.

Be careful of “natural” or “green” cleaners which often are not so clean after all. For more information on this topic, follow Environmental Working Group as one resource.

No one can totally avoid being exposed to these toxins 100%, however, there are easy swaps that can be made in our homes and taking a few minutes to make DIY cleaners is one simple way.

See one recipe below in comments.

Message me if you’d like to learn more about using essential oils as part of your switch to reducing toxins in the home and body.

Delish, easy to cook and healthy!

A “clean” BBQ Sauce can be hard to find. They are often filled with high fructose corn syrup and other chemical ingredients and often have hidden gluten/wheat. This one from @traderjoes does not and it’s full of flavor!

BBQ Salmon, Chick Peas, Spinach, Broccoli, Goat Cheese and GF Pasta

Cheers to delish and vibrant meals!
