I believe in eliminating the social stigma of weight and other marginalized bodies, equal access to health care, and treating human beings with the respect and care they deserve no matter size or race.
I take a non-diet approach that is weight-inclusive. I promote healthy behaviors rather than intentional weight loss or specific diets and serve people of all sizes.
Our work together is holistic and takes into account the many parts of your life that contribute to your wellbeing. Your experiences, feelings, and beliefs are valid and valuable.
“Wellness” should be inclusive, available to, and safe for all, not just those privileged with resources. My online programs are disability-friendly, and I offer free workshops, sliding scale services, and course scholarships when possible.
I believe developing your intuition is a key component of healing. My approach uses tools that help you strengthen this connection to your inner self, through journaling, meditation, and intuitive eating.
THE ANTI-RACIST SMALL BUSINESS PLEDGE
Anti-racist: those who speak and act in ways that advance racial equity in society; the act of interrupting racism.
As a small business owner working to be actively anti-racist and to help make the wellness industry safe and welcoming to people of color, I commit to the following:
To name white supremacy and the impact of racism on both my personal and professional lives.
Regularly discussing the impact of racism on wellbeing (social media, newsletter, with clients), calling in other wellness professionals to take action, developing an inclusion rider for future contracts.
Engage in anti-racist education on an ongoing basis.
Currently working through Rachel Cargle’s #DoTheWork course.
Commit to open-conflict and allow discomfort.
I put forth my best efforts to do no harm but I know that in the process of deprogramming, there will be mistakes. I am always open to feedback.
Invest a portion of my monthly company budget to the Black community.
Donating monthly to the Black Mamas Matter Alliance and am regularly seeking Black-owned apps and software alternatives.
Express my sincere, long-term commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization in my business communication.
This Values page serves as part of my permanent statement, and I am working on language that will be included in my contracts, press bio, and other external documents.

As someone who promote the use of food as medicine (and pleasure!) and herbs as tools in our wellbeing, I believe it’s important for myself and others who practice the same to give reverence to the land that provides nature’s gifts. I acknowledge that Good Witch Kitchen operates on Pawtucket and Massachusett land and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.
