In 2018, I began to develop auto-immune issues which prompted me to look for alternate ways to have a healthier balance in my life and this led to my first Functional Nutrition certification. At this time, I was using all the tools I learned but was not feeling better and kept getting different auto-immune diagnoses from practitioners. In early 2020, I fell very ill and honestly reached my breaking point. I was in Bali at the time and reached out to a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner as a last resort to figure out what is wrong with me. She had a hunch, and we ran a few tests, and it was confirmed that I was suffering from Copper Toxicity. Not only was I happy to finally know why I was so sick, but it was a catalyst of a major shift in my life. I increased my spiritual practice and developed a passion towards radical self-care, alternative healing treatments, and holistic medicine. This alongside my western functional nutrition training became the necessity of my own health journey and the base of what I use with every client. I believe in achieving peace, fulfillment, and balance – physically and mentally.
I want to help you navigate the world of confusing nutrition and health advice in order to determine what choices are beneficial for you and your lifestyle. I am not a believer in diets or "short-term" fixes. I will guide you on making well-balanced food and lifestyle choices. I also believe that everybody is different, and I will truly take the time to understand your body and lifestyle to create the best plan for you. My wellness philosophy is that wellness should be customized, individualized, and targeted to each person.
I have experience in the following areas and would truly love to guide you on your path to radical healing:
• Adrenal disorders

• Eating Disorders
• Emotional Eating
• Food Allergies & Intolerances

I met Erica while taking her Pilates class in Bali. We got to chatting after class and I instantly noticed her enthusiasm and passion for helping others by sharing her knowledge and experience in health and wellness. She shared with me some of her history in injury and I was immediately drawn to her. Learning by textbook is one thing, but learning by experience is another. I was also drawn by her organic approach to exercise by listening to the body and what it needs, not pushing and pushing to get the aesthetic results....which is what I was so used to doing prior to working with her. During our sessions, I found her to be intuitive, present and knowledgeable and I loved the way she let the conversation flow to where it needed to go. I always left our meeting's learning MUCH more than I anticipated I would and with a new found enthusiasm for my OWN health and skills to get the ball rolling. She completely customized a health program for me that focused on the root of my concerns and I felt supported and balanced as I began this new journey. I have seen many health and wellness coaches and I genuinely find Erica to be one of the best.

When I sought Erica’s nutritional services, I was coming off of three months on Keto, and to be honest, I felt terrible. I had success on Keto, but it was marginalized compared to the side effects I was feeling. Under Erica’s guidance, we were able to find supplements to offset some of the side effects and put me on a path for long-term success under a clean (but still flexible) plan. I found that her list of prescribed foods on a weekly basis made cooking fun again, and I learned to appreciate the nutritional benefits of my new diet. My skin is glowing again, I don’t feel lethargic or swollen anymore, and I can’t thank Erica enough for putting me on a sustainable life path with food.
I was referred to Erica by a friend to see if she could help me with an old torn labrum shoulder injury that was still bothersome at times. We met several times and discussed my goals and she put together a comprehensive plan that addressed the injury plus other goals of mine, including weight loss and help with nutrition. She is a patient teacher and I felt like she truly listened to me and wanted me to succeed. The exercises she showed me have helped my shoulder strength and pain and the nutrition plan has resulted in some weight loss but more importantly overall better health.
