Because you have one life to live

Fibromyalgia stole my life from me once. I learned how to take back my life and I have been helping other people do the same thing for 24 years.

I provide Health & Wellness Coaching for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (Vulvodynia, TMJ, CFS/ME, IBS, IC, Endometriosis, Chronic Headache & Migraine, and Chronic Low Back Pain).

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed with managing your chronic illness?

I ask because that is how I felt. I have been managing chronic illnesses since I was 18. I have gone from being a scared and bed-ridden single woman, to a married, mom of two who has zip lined and skydived. I will just add that i found managing chronic illnesses to be harder and scarier than jumping out of a plane and climbing and ziplining through trees.

According to Wayne Jonas, MD, 80% of healing happens outside of your doctor’s office. 


“Research has repeatedly shown that even with full medical access and optimal medical treatments, a population’s health improves only by about 15 to 20 percent. The rest comes from lifestyle, environment, and the social and personal determinants of health.” - Researcher and Author Wayne Jonas, MD


This 80% of healing concept has been true in my life and I have witnessed it with hundreds of people that I have worked with as a Fibromyalgia Support & Education Group Leader and an education consultant to fibromyalgia organizations for the past 24 years. I am thrilled physicians like Dr. Jonas and members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine are bringing these life-changing concepts into mainstream media and discussions. Lifestyle Medicine can change lives and this is why I became a Lifestyle Medicine Health & Wellness Coach.


As a Lifestyle Medicine Coach, I am trained to help you review these “80%” areas that impact health and help you develop personal health and wellness plans designed to manage your chronic illness and not just survive, but thrive - yes, it really is possible. This journey takes patience, commitment, courage, and a curious mind. Change is always challenging. If you have been doing something for 5 - 60 years, it is hard to stop doing it or add a new habit to your daily regimen. I get it. All of the changes I have made have been hard and have taken patience, experimentation, and self compassion. I experienced (and still experience) many failures along the way which I have renamed as learning experiences. I believe there is no trial and error, it’s trial and learn.


If you are looking for nonjudgemental help at discovering new paths forward, I would love to talk with you. If your doctor is recommending making lifestyle changes and you don't even know where to begin with making them, I would be happy to help. What do you want to get back to being able to do?
