This FREE gift compliments my Hurricane Lucy Caregiver's Guide and my Self-Care books.

As a graduate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC, I received my AADP board certification as a Health Coach through the American Academy of Drugless Practitioners. 

In my health coaching practice, I practiced a Holistic approach to health and wellness, meaning that I looked at how all areas of our life are connected and how all parts of our life affect our health as a whole.

You see, I believe that we are fed, not just by the food we eat, but by the energy in our lives. To the extent to which we are able to incorporate all forms of nourishment into our life determines how enjoyable our lives become. Contributing to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment, I believe we hunger for play, fun, touch, romance, intimacy, love achievement, success, art, music, self-expression, leadership, excitement, adventure, and spirituality.

As I worked with clients, I developed my signature program The H.E.A.L. Approach, which stands for Healthy Eating Active Lifestyle. As a result my clients deepened their understanding of food and lifestyle choices, and how easy it was to implement lasting changes that improved their energy, balance and health.

Now, semi-retired, I write and have published health and wellness books based on my signature H.E.A.L. Approach program. I have also written and published journals and children's storybooks, always keeping my motto in mind "Attitude is so Important!"

I wrote my first book Hurricane Lucy: A Caregiver’s Guide in hopes that sharing my story of the trials and tribulations of caring for my handicapped, elderly mother would be of help to other caregivers, especially burnt-out caregivers. Becoming the caregiver for my mother was physically challenging and emotionally draining. In this book I share how I went from overwhelming stress to bringing joy back into my life and loving, compassionate relationships back into my home.

A sequel to this book (title to be announced) is in the works, which deals with grieving the loss of my ninety-two year-old-mother and the impact her passing has had on me and our family. This book will also include a comprehensive helpful guide regarding what to expect while going through the grieving process.
