FAQ’S

Find the answers to your questions.

ARE YOU A HEALTH COACH?

Yes and more. I am a nutritionist with a functional approach to well being. Therefore my approach is data-driven and is executed using integrative techniques. I take into consideration how the systems of the body work together.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF RADIATE WELLNESS?

To help clients understand the complexities of their diet and the power they have over their health. Nutrition is complicated, my job is to be your guide on the journey.

WHERE DID YOU COMPLETE YOUR TRAINING?

I completed a Certificate in Wholistic Nutrition from the Wellspring School for the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. I acquired my Functional Nutrition training through Replenish PDX in 2014. I continued my functional training to become a FDN-P, which allows me to order functional testing to uncover hidden healing opportunities in your health. I have been a yoga teacher in the Portland area for 7 years and completed my 200 hour teacher training at the Bhaktishop School of Yoga. I am currently completing my 500 hour teacher training with Yoga Medicine.

IS THERE A BASIC DIET EVERYONE SHOULD FOLLOW?

Diet and lifestyle are completely unique to each person. What is one person’s medicine can quite literally be another person’s poison. This is why a bio-individual approach is so crucial for success.

HOW DO YOGA AND NUTRITION GO TOGETHER?

The mindfulness practiced in yoga and breath based meditation bring your awareness inside of the body. This sets the foundation for a thoughtful approach to your well-being that recognizes patterns in the ways we relate with ourselves. Optimal health requires knowing what your patterns are, what motivates you towards change and what might be in the way of your success. With these clear assessments, goals are achievable, and there is an investment established in your wellbeing that is nurturing and ongoing.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

Unfortunately, I am not able to accept insurance for private clients at this time.

ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TEACH COMMUNITY NUTRITION CLASSES?

Yes, and I love them! I teach community classes in the Portland Metro area on a variety of topics. I am available for classes with or without a cooking element.

DO I NEED TO LIVE IN PORTLAND TO WORK WITH YOU?

Thanks to the amazing times in which we live, distance sessions are possible. If you are interested in becoming a client, please jump on my schedule for a 15 minute Q&A call. 

Cultivating self-acceptance and love are the foundations for self-care. Mindfulness practice helps to solidify our transformations.
