I am an Integrative Oncology Coach, Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant (NTC), and Board Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA). What all this means is that I’m passionate about bio-individualized health and wellness, and want to help others achieve the same.

Integrative Oncology Coach
I completed a unique form of training in Integrative Oncology through a one year Community Coaching Program with Integrative Oncologist Dr. Nasha Winters, ND, FABNO, L.Ac, Dipl.OM., (completed in 2016) and now serve as a recommended consultant on her team with a special focus in the Asia region. Using methodologies from this training and The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, with a deep awareness of the importance of bio-individuality in cancer care, I help clients walk through the most common patterns found to impact the disease/health continuum.
Integrative Oncology is especially focused on overall “terrain” health (something Conventional Oncology often misses), and the awareness that cancer, or any disease process, is rooted in systemic imbalances that can be favorably and naturally influenced.
Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant (NTC)
As a Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant (NTC) through the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA), I focus on the body’s nutritional deficiencies (as determined through personalized assessments and testing) and use a whole foods diet, supplementation and lifestyle changes to work towards optimal health. The concept of Nutritional Therapy works in synergy with Integrative Oncology, as the basis for any cancer treatment plan should be deeply therapeutic, bio-individualized nutrition.
Board Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA)
I am Board Certified in Patient Advocacy and recognize the need for effective dialogue between patients and their practitioners. I help clients navigate the sometimes confusing wellness journey.
I am a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals. Additionally, to further complement my experience, I completed an eight month program with Dr. Grace Liu (Pharm D) of The Gut Institute to optimize my own microbiome based on my genetics. This program included personal assessments, as well as classes in microbiome health and nutrigenomics (the study of the interplay between nutrition and our genes).
