What is an Ayurvedic Health Coach?
A practitioner who infuses the wisdom of Ayurveda, the ancient knowledge of living well, with your goals and desires to create the best life you envision for yourself. I provide support and encouragement to make the transformations necessary in order for you to live a life of balance, health, fulfillment and harmony.
During my 9 years as a practicing Ayurvedic Practitioner here in Portland and my 20+ years as a spiritual counselor and coach I’ve learned some of the most important aspects of the healing process are to listen with an open heart and to hold a safe and compassionate space, where healing can naturally occur. This is what I offer you. Along with practical tools to help facilitate your transformation through shifting your thoughts, behaviors and actions so you can live your best life!
My first introduction to Ayurveda was at the age of 19 when I learned to meditate. Over the years I was continually drawn to learn more about this fascinating science until one day, after many years in the corporate world, I was finally ready to begin my formal studies.
I graduated from the California College of Ayurveda in 2011 and then travelled to India to intern with a well-known Ayurvedic Vaidya (Doctor) Lilidhar Gupta in Vrindavan, India. I continuously expand my education with many beloved teachers including Mary Thompson, Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Claudia Welch, Dr. John Douillard, Ysha Oaks, Dr. Sarita Shrestha, K. P. Khalsa, and many others.
During my practice, I’ve had the privilege to work with over 1,000 clients, many of them with difficult and chronic imbalances. I draw upon my many years of learning about life, Ayurveda, herbalism, nutrition, trusting my intuition, and the subtle yet powerful practice of energy transformation. I look forward to being of service and may your journey into balanced health be one of great learning, pleasure and joy!
