Who is Amy & Why A Holistic Approach?

"I serve the misfits, the differently challenged...people that have tried almost everything to help their

situation and still have come up shorthanded.

I'm not interested in the dis-ease one carries, more the person that needs revealing, so that integrity becomes the normal stance among the condition(s) one might find themselves within; all else reorganizes naturally with a holistic approach.


Having experienced this paradigm myself after numerous personal traumas, both physically and mentally with lacking results from the mainstream health system, my path to serve from a holistic approach was etched out early on. I would call myself  a detective of what opposes equilibrium in my clients lives"


- Amy E. Matarese
