Vegan Lifestyle and Emotional Well-Being Research
I am seeking vegans to participate in a survey about the emotional, social, and spiritual impacts of a vegan lifestyle. My hope is that the findings will support vegans to live with even more purpose and fulfillment, and may inspire pre-vegans to step forward on to this compassionate and life-affirming path. If you would like to learn more about participating in this brief survey, click HERE.
My specialties include working with:
- Sensitive, compassionate, and empathic individuals who care about helping others and making the world a better place, and who seek to discover and express their higher purpose
- Healers, activists, and helping professionals who may be experiencing compassion fatigue, burnout, or overwhelm, or who feel out of alignment in key life areas
- Vegans and vegetarians who face challenges socially or emotionally in living a lifestyle not supported or embraced by those around them
- Those seeking to transition to a plant-powered, vegan diet
I believe we each have the potential to access inner wisdom to live our healthiest, most authentic, and purposeful life. From my background as a psychotherapist and transformational coach, I draw on several approaches to help connect you with your inner resources, release limiting patterns, and break through to a life of fulfillment, purpose, and joy.

My past Thanksgivings were centered around a feast shared with loved ones, in which a turkey was the central part of the meal. When I adopted a plant-based diet nearly 14 years ago, it changed how I view Thanksgiving and what this holiday means to me. I still look forward to the shared meal with…

Flourishing Emotionally with Plant-Powered Nutrition
Article published on the Main Street Vegan Blog (March 30, 2021)
Many who choose a vegan diet are aware of the benefits for improving physical health and reversing diseases. When I became vegan, I wondered if a plant-based diet also had an impact on emotional health. As I dove into the research, I discovered that the same plant-strong diet that contributes to a healthier immune system and that lessens risk of many medical diseases is also helpful for improving our mental and emotional states.
