Functional Medicine Health Coaching
Complementary Medicine & ACMOS Practitioner, Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, HearthMath Certified Practitioner, CBD Consultant/Educator
I am excited to join the wellness team at The Harvey Center for Integrative Medicine. Having an extensive background in teaching and practicing Energy Medicine, my devotion for Healing Arts is reflected in my lifetime of study and service in Holistic and Psycho-Somatic Modalities.
My passion is connecting with my clients in a way that allows them to feel nurtured and safe while exposing the roots of physical, emotional, and mental imbalances that can lead to dis-ease. In my practice, I apply Functional Medicine Principles, Energy Psychology with Biofeedback and Vibrational Medicine to support resilience and wellbeing. I work with HeartMath Techniques for Stress Reduction and Self-Regulation that facilitates personal transformation.
My vision and passion has always been about creating space for healing and self-transformation. In 2008 after I was certified by Paris Academy of Quantum Medicine ACMOS Method of Bioenergetics, I started my own center JOY which became a hub where I hosted dozens of therapists/trainers from around the world. I have had the educational opportunity to travel and facilitating wellness classes throughout the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, Mallorca.
In 2011 I opened Niagara Wellness Center with partners Sintia Mazon and Steve Comer which was my longtime dream. Niagara became a pioneer in the country of Turkey and served as the first Functional Medicine Hub. We were privileged to collaborate with many talented doctors and healers, offering services such as Genomic Coaching, Genetic Testing, Amino Acid Analysis, Holistic Psychiatry, Holistic Oncology and Oncology Genetics, Somatic Psychotherapy, Functional Lab Tests.
We created the YOUniversity School for Self-Awareness and we have been teaching on site and online classes there since 2013. Our YOUniversity Corporate Wellness Program help corporations; Vodafone, Young Presidents Organization and Google to create a Wellness and Stress Management Culture within their workspaces.
I have been passionately following the Functional Medicine movement for many years and completed my Functional Medicine Coaching Training with Functional Medicine Coaching Academy and Institute of Functional Medicine in 2018. The evolution of my work is practicing Complementary Medicine and healing sciences collaborated with Functional Medicine principles.
I am currently residing in Sarasota, Florida where I continue my wellness practice at The Harvey Center for Integrative Medicine with Fred Harvey, MD as well as educate clients online in Acmos Energy Balancing sessions, Holistic Health consultations, and CBD consultations. While teaching YOUniversity classes online every week, I facilitate Conscious Living Lab and Functional Health Workshops.

We are what we eat, and we eat what we are. Everything we feed ourselves with determines our life force, our vibration and our mind and body connection.
What we eat is not only the building block of our physical body but also effects our emotions, our thoughts, our clarity and our mood. If your foundation is strong what you build on it will be sustainable.
We are living in an era that our nutrition is quite different than it was centuries ago. We need to go back to basics if we want to live a lively life. The human body needs clean water, plant based foods that grows in mineral rich soil and sunlight.
It is not easy to find food with such qualities, yet when we find them if we don’t pay attention to how we prepare our meals we can destroy all the enzymes and minerals by cooking them in high temperatures.
In our conscious kitchen we prepare our food in a way that is the most bioavailable form so our body can benefit from those foods. We try to keep them alive so that they can contribute to our wellbeing and increase our life force. We sprout, we ferment, we dehydrate. We do not consider any processed, packaged product as food. We get inspired from nature’s natural recycling ways and we try not to waste any resources. We keep our water clean.
We learn how to nourish our senses. We make sure to select all of the colors for our plate because every color nourishes a different body system. We eat with pleasure. We glow and utilize our kitchen to raise our vibration.
Don’t forget that the kitchen is the heart chakra of our home!
