Viva mi Vida! Holistic Health Counseling


As an off-shoot of Viva la Vida! Live Foods for Life, I am excited to introduce now Viva mi Vida!, my holistic health counseling practice, that promotes sustainable, vibrant health, empowering self-reliance and nutritional sovereignty for all. As an advocate for individual and community autonomy, I’m committed to share my experience and partner in a cooperative inquiry with members of my Chican@/ Latin@ communities to facilitate the re-membering of healthy lifestyles.

This practice allows me to integrate so many different areas of interest and expertise that I have developed during my life! My twenty five years  in higher education have given me the skills for successful participatory teaching and learning, creative research and self-motivation. My experience as a community organizer and youth mentor has taught me how to communicate effectively with a population that is eager to start rethinking their nutritional habits and lifestyle in order to take charge of their bodies, minds and spirits. My ten years exploring a raw food diet, detoxifications and cleanses and the resulting vibrant activation of my being, and my life-long spiritual quest and practices offer me the understanding that, as energetic beings, transformative healing occurs only when we address our mind-body-spirit connection.

I offer bilingual private and group coaching programs, a variety of seminars and workshops on raw food preparation, community cleanses and detoxifications, and holistic health consultant services.
