Lately have you felt overwhelmed by life or questioned how you feel? Found yourself trapped by events of the past? Or have you taken a glance in the mirror and found that you don’t like or
recognize the person looking back at you?


If the answer is yes to at least one of the above, then T.A.V.E.R.N. Health and Wellness, LLC, is your solution. Here I Teach Acceptance (of self), Validate Emotions (you are battling with), and Reshape Negativity in order to help you become your best self. I meet you where you are (physically, emotionally, spiritually) and empowered you to work through any negative

thoughts/beliefs from your past and/or current struggles in order to live healthy, happier lives.The business name is a nod to my father, who along with my mother, instilled in me a strong work ethic, determination, and obliterated the word “can’t.”
