Hi, I'm Emma!
I was born in Beirut Lebanon, grew up in Southern California and lived in Brooklyn, NY for many years as well. My father was a restaurateur, and I was raised in the restaurant business. In my 20's, I ran the Federal Court House cafeteria in Brooklyn, NY. In my 30's, I became a pastry chef and even ran my own bakery in San Diego. When my father passed away, my husband and I took over the family restaurant business.
When Covid hit, I realized my relationship with food wasn't in alignment with the holistic lifestyle that I've been pursuing since the mid 2000's. I realized it was time to make some major changes because it was affecting my health. I left the food industry and the family restaurant business to my husband and went on my own health journey. I was introduced to the Emotion Code in 2018 and started seeing a certified practitioner.
It’s one of the best decisions I made that's helped me make significant changes to both my physical and emotional health.
As a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner, Certified Nutrition Coach, Certified L1 SSR Coach, Certified Sleep Consultant, Toxicity & Detox Specialist.
I'm invested in emotional wellness, nutrition, adult sleep and physical health.
I created My Daily Detox to help others make changes so they can also enjoy a healthier lifestyle, feel good in their own skin and simply— love life!
What does my regular wellness routine look like?
Every day is a new day and I love it! I want you to live a full life that you love as well!
That’s why I'm here to help.
What does my holistic lifestyle look like?
I sleep well.
Sleeping is very important to me. When I was younger, I neglected my sleep going on 4-5 hours a night. As I got older in my 20's and 30's I still didn't understand how important sleep was for my emotional and physical health. Now I have a regular sleep routine at night, and I feel so much more productive and alive during the day. Releasing negative emotions helped me to relax and my anxiety went down significantly, allowing me to sleep.
I eat well.
I shop at local farmer’s markets as often as I’m able and make eating clean a priority. I try my best to eat organic when I can. I avoid processed foods during weekdays and make it a point to eat at home. I also treat myself on the weekends and enjoy every bite of whatever I'm eating.... no hard feelings.
I connect with my body.
I really enjoy staying active. I do that by working out daily whether by taking high intensity spin class, Pilates, jumping on my rebounder daily or just walking my dog. I also love working out with my weightlifting husband. He’s been lifting for over 25 years!
I connect with animals.
I’m an animal loving dog mom who loves taking Max out on long morning walks. I would love to have a small farm one day and rescue different animals.
I connect with nature.
As someone who lives in California, I truly appreciate nature whether at the beach or in the mountains. I love tree's when I get a chance, I love hugging them!
I connect with my roots.
I love making homemade Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. In fact, I take a lot of pride in making family recipes passed down to me by my family who immigrated from Armenia, Greece and Lebanon.
I connect with others.
I love helping others and volunteer weekly to help people have a better hope for the future. Taking care of my parents when they were ill brought me so much peace.
I do things I enjoy.
I'm a huge movie buff especially historical British time period. I love anything "Jane Austin.” I love a good Agatha Christy story and Jeremy Brett is the best Sherlock Holmes (in my opinion.) I also love music from all genres and different decades, I love it all!
I love traveling when I can — especially to Greece and England!
