Prior to becoming a health coach, I was a professional dancer, actress and producer. I also helped to launch the brand new fitness facility in the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan. My experience included managing the facility, fitness sales and marketing, and managing a sales and administrative team. I am 33 and have a BS in Psychology and Dance from NYU. I graduated from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2002 with a certification from the American Association of Drugless Practitioners as a health coach. I am also a graduate of the Heartwood Institute in California, where I studied healing nutrition through the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

After suffering from past binge/emotional eating patterns, chronic sinus problems, and menstrual imbalances, I slowly but surely explored the world of holistic healing and found great success in healing my own physical and emotional health concerns. I have combined powerful ideas from my performing, healing and business background to empower my clients to live a healthier, happier and more balanced life.

In addition to being a health coach, I am the Director of Nutrition Services for the Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness in Manhattan, a clinic providing Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat infertility and reproductive disorders. As a women’s and men’s reproductive health specialist, I emphasize using nutrition therapy, stress-reduction techniques and life-transforming counseling modalities for improving reproductive wellness and fertility quotients. I am also an expert at weight loss coaching and improving chronic digestive disorders and sinus conditions. In addition, I work with many clients who are generally healthy, yet overwhelmed with how to eat well on a busy schedule.

My coaching style is strong yet compassionate. I hold my clients accountable for action steps that we BOTH agree upon, based on my client’s goals and lifestyle. Plenty of time is allotted for feedback, progress discussions and obstacle clearing. While some sessions focus on the particulars of meal plans and healing foods, others center on techniques for stress reduction, lifestyle balance, and clearing “mental gymnastics.” Laughing, of course, is non-negotiable.

I love this life I have created- one with freedom, joy, and the ability to draw on my own experiences to empower so many others. I have been blessed with the help of many healers along the way when I was challenged with both physical and emotional imbalances. Being a part of another’s transformation is the biggest gift on earth, and now I am on the giving side.
