I come from a rich family. Rich in the tradition of Italian eating, loud hand-talking and love. I learned to make spaghetti before I could spell and spent lots of time wondering when we were going to eat next. Because when we eat – we connect. I am at home in the kitchen, and am grateful and amazed that the simple value of eating homemade meals lead me to discover the healing power of food.
I grew up watching the dolls dance on my bedroom shelves at night. Communicating with the ghost of my great grandmother in the basement, questioning religion, creating science experiments, organizing neighborhood fun fairs — and exaggerating about all of it in my journals. I kept one since age 8.
In 2006, when I officially became the mom of a child who was drastically affected by the many toxins around him, and subsequently diagnosed with autism — my dream world fell apart. And as we undid my son’s autism, I found more answers in each
layer of my life.
It became clear, very early on, that I needed to address my own health issues as well. For many years, a systemic candida infection caused major fatigue, migraines, fainting spells, lack of concentration and a host of other debilitating symptoms. Of course, this same infection was also present in my son.
The keys to healing had been given to me at birth. I knew instinctively to begin recovering my family by cleaning up our diets with wholesome organic, highly absorbable, vegan foods that promoted detox. Further studies helped me to determine what those exact foods were. My intuition grew as we got healthier.
Soon, I dove into studying natural health in greater depth and had the opportunity to train with Donna Gates of the Body Ecology Diet. I became a Reiki pracitioner, took Shamanism classes, and read every book I could that spoke to our ability to heal ourselves. I learned to embrace writing, art, movement, spirit, science, nature and myself as scared parts of one whole harmonized self.
Now, I dedicate myself to spreading this harmony into your lives. I believe that by working with conscious people who are hungry for positive change – we create a harmonized world.
I offer intuitive Reiki healings and nutritional coaching with Body Ecology and raw foods. I also run a one-year healing program for autism recovery. We can work in person or long distance.
