A Mission with a Vision

a bit about me...

I am a holistic integrative nutrition health coach, the author of Tikkun Olam In The Kitchen™ and founder of Tools for Health Coaches™. I offer unique approaches to creating a health and wellness lifestyle based upon the teachings of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® which supports a coaching style that offers sustainable, spiritual and a healthy self. I borrow the primary theme for my coaching programs from my personal interpretation of what "Tikkun Olam" means and the potential this concept holds. To heal, repair and transform the world. One that enable us to transform our lives by creating positive changes within self, and ultimately the world around us. Individually and collectively, we hold the ability to heal ourselves and the world. My book and the development of my unique health coaching programs are the result of an ongoing vision of mine for many years, witnessing the power of my own transformation in all areas of life that provide me with meaning, purpose and a mission. 


How I feed my own soul...

  • I aspire to be a source of positive change.

  • I do what I love and love what I do.

  • I hope to set an example of self-development and growth.

  • I live each day with the freedom to choose what’s right for me.

  • I support others in the shift to better health.

  • I embrace learning and new ways to do things.

  • I want to create balance in all areas of my life.

  • I keep it simple and simplify everything.

My spiritual guides are an eclectic group of clergy of all faiths and I would include secular, spiritual humanists, agnostics and atheists. I've often referred to myself as a "Ju-Bu" having found the deepest spiritual connection within the wisdom of both Judaism and Buddhism. There was a time in my life where I was hungry to seek out spiritual guides who were able to engage in a dialogue about g_d, life, love, healing, gratitude and the pure potential for each one of us to live a balanced, healthy life no matter what our circumstances might be at any given moment in our lives. The result of this quest has been this idea of borrowing the concept of Tikkun Olam towards a simplified and easily understood process of steps on the road to healing the world with the knowledge that it begins with self!
With "Tikkun Olam in the Kitchen™" and the integrative nutrition and lifestyle change coaching programs, I adhere to the belief that food is medicine, food is sustenance and food is justice. Access to food is a basic human right and so I first begin with taking an honest look at what we, as individuals, can do to wholly commit to these concepts in our own world. I think it is important to review our own perceptions and lifestyle habits when I introduce the concept of bio-individual needs as well as "primary foods". These concepts are important to understand so that you can move forward with responsibility and holding self accountable. There is no sustainable healing of what is outside of us, unless we are willing to make changes within. You'll learn more about this as you journey through the process of healing the world, one "recipe" at a time. That "recipe" begins with you.
Tikkun Olam Coaching Program works you from the "inside / out". It will challenge you throughout the transition process and I trust that you'll enjoy the journey! 
L'Chaim! To Life, Love and Joy!
