Balance + Wellbeing
a natural path
My Goal For You
Detox your Body and Mind the Natural Way.
My goal for you: to achieve and maintain homeostasis
Homeostasis = balance + wellbeing.
My mission is to empower you with the tools and mindset to achieve optimum psychophysical wellbeing. My approach is client-centered and individually designed to your specific needs; allowing your body to heal and renew, and your mind to relax and recharge.
Together we go beyond your symptoms, working on you as a whole: body, mind and spirit, for a healthier, happier you.
No two people are alike and similar symptoms can be caused by a multitude of reasons, that vary based on your body type, background, mindset, age and the specific circumstances in your life. With this in mind, we will choose one or a combination of treatments that might begin with a Homotoxicological Detox of your E.C.M. and excretory organs and may include Nutrition, Reiki,
Dr. Bach's florytherapy, personalized Meditation sessions, Herbal remedies, Holistic Massage Therapy with essential oils and other Stress Management techniques that are rooted in naturopathic principles.
I am available in person and via Skype, I work with Corporate accounts to improve general communication and reduce work related stress, and offer workshops in Italy and abroad in English, French, and Italian. No matter where you are, we can connect and work together to give you back the balance and wellbeing you need to enjoy your life to the fullest.
Send me a message through the contact page or if I'm online, we can chat live!
I look forward to hearing from you.
You can read my blog to learn more about the effects of stress, and the many modalities that I use.
Born in New York, I grew up in Florence and now live near Rome surrounded by nature. I've had the good fortune to live in many places ... I have called Los Angeles, New York, Brussels, Paris, Calascio and L'Aquila "home" at some point in my life. Locations tend to lend themselves to particular concepts, philosophies, ideas and idiosyncratic knowledge. My holistic approach is informed and shaped by the many places I have lived or spent time in over the years.
Trained at the Roman University LUI.Ben (International University of Well-being) where I am currently specializing in Homotoxicology. Reiki Master in the original Usui Ryoho method.
My additional courseworks include Dr. Burgarella's Burgarella Quantum Healing BQH, Several workshops on the Microbiome, and various other courses.
In my previous work as chef and owner of a Tuscan restaurant in Brooklyn New York, I honed my interest in seasonal & natural cooking. Which in turn lead me to teaching and writing about seasonal and natural food. I continue to offer Mindful Nutrition and cooking classes to small groups and I will help you eat for your specific body type to reduce inflamation and achieve optimun health. My new passions are Fermented food and pre-biotic nutrition.

"Catherine has taught me how to eat, how to think better, to be content. She conveys peace, because she is skilled to help find peace. I never told her, but she reminds me of the female authority figures of the Church: Saint Clara, Saint Catherine, Saint Rita, Saint Rose. That's how she is. She has a charisma that she uses for others, she elevates, and motivates, and soothes, heals and helps us improve and grow and walk towards happiness".
