I offer a variety of services that are customized to meet your needs.
I teach my clients about lifestyle changes so that they can maintain their health after we're done working together. My goal for you is ongoing, lasting change and transformation.
I love seeing people transform themselves and connecting how they look and feel with what they are and aren't eating. It's fun and exciting being on the path with them. They might come to me for weight loss and then report that in addition to losing the weight, they feel happier, more energetic, and have better sex lives.
Areas of success:
- Skin issues (acne, eczema, etc)
- Digestive issues (IBS, acid reflux, etc);
- Weight loss
- Hormones (PCOS, fertility, endometriosis, etc)

FirstLine Therapy is a therapeutic lifestyle modification program. Designed by health care professionals, FirstLine Therapy has been clinically proven to help individuals like you return to a path of extended health. This is not a weight reduction program - it's a disease reduction program. While weight loss often occurs, it's only secondary to the primary goal of helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body composition (lean muscle-to-fat ratio) to improve health, manage disease, feel better, and reduce your risk of more serious conditions.
Chronic Health Conditions
|type 2 diabetes||1 in 9 adults|
|heart disease||1 in 3 adults|
|overweight/obesity||3 in 5 adults|
|high blood pressure||1 in 3 adults|
|elevated cholesterol||1 in 6 adults|
|metabolic syndrome||1 in 3 adults|
Many of these preventable conditions are linked with unhealthy modern lifestyles; low physical activity, high stress, lack of rest, and eating habits that include fast and processed foods, high sugar, low fiber, and unhealthy fats. Most major organizations including the World Health Organization, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Institute of Health endorse therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) in treating these lifestyle-related chronic diseases.
FirstLine Therapy is a simple and effective program that gives you all the support you need to succeed.
