As the founder of Radiant Heart, I'm constantly (and gently) reminding myself of my dharma.
Your "dharma" is your inherent purpose, or true calling in life. It is what you were born to do. It was what was written on your soul from the moment you were conceived.
I have infused my dharma into my company's mission and vision. At Radiant Heart we're a company with the purest purpose - helping you find yourself back to your authentic self.
We believe that:
Our mission is to provide you with simple and efficient solutions that create personalized self-care, enhanced longevity and quality of life!
Our commitment to you is to honor your values, ask questions most practitioners avoid and guide you to become aware of your inner wisdom. This will open doors to connect to your authentic self.
Our Heal from Within Approach cultivates an inner shift for you to thrive, not survive!
Our clinical and holistic practices are utilized by practitioners, entrepreneurs and go-getters worldwide because they create unprecedented outcomes for themselves and loved ones!
Our vision is a world where we all get to unapologetically -
live as our authentic selves,
be in connection with others,
and share love with all beings.
I take a heart-centered approach, supported by scientific principles, to get to the bottom of your challenges
and enhance your whole self.
My time is yours, your story yields the keys.
Using my east-west toolbox, we investigate every factor.
I specialize in investigating the root cause of your challenges.

As the inflammation erupted in her body, the depression, ADHD and heightened anxiety returned with a vengeance,

Positive Mindset and Resilience: Moving beyond external behaviors, you'll focus on re-training your nervous system and cultivating new neural pathways in your brain . We'll co-create coping strategies, manage stress, and shift negative thought patterns, fostering a resilient mindset.
Improved Health Outcomes: By addressing underlying lifestyle factors, these improved shifts can contribute to long-term health improvements and chronic disease prevention.
Long-term Support and Maintenance: I'll equip you with a life-long skill set to continue your journey independently, fostering self-sufficiency and long-term maintenance of healthy behaviors.
NOTE: With this approach, we take one small step at a time, layering healthy habit upon habit until it becomes second nature!
