As a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Irene understands the connection between wellness, food and lifestyle. Our relationship with food, weight issues and health challenges often aren't just a simple matter of metabolism. There are things like food addictions, hormones, food allergies and sensitivities, self-care and more that have to be explored. All calories are not the same! Food changes everything. As your daily diet changes, not only does your body change, but you will see improvements in your happiness and personal and professional life.

As your agent of transformation, wellness guide and supportive mentor, I will give you the tools for developing a deeper understanding of the goods and lifestyle choices that work best for you.  Together, we'll explore the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for your body, so you can experience the changes that improve your overall health, balance and energy.
