The 3 pillars of my practice

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy offers a holistic, root-cause approach to health. It strives to address any dysfunction or imbalances by supporting healing at the deepest level possible. We will explore your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being to create a health plan that supports you on all levels. Ultimately creating a recipe for lasting wellness.


 Plant remedies are a simple and safe way to propel us down the path to health, enlightenment and all things in-between.  My passion for nature and herbalism consistently inspires me to formulate small batch herbal remedies aimed to help people develop whole-being wellness. To help deepen into this ancient medicine style, I offer herbal consultations. These consults provide you with an individualized herbal blend(s) designed to help you live life to the fullest. If you are looking for a quick, easy and potent addition to your life, this is it!


As our knowledge of physiology grows, the impact of our mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing on physical health is becoming more apparent. It is often these more abstract areas of our life that holds us back. Sometimes simply setting a goal isn’t enough… what we really need is a safe and sacred place to work through all the behind-the-scenes obstacles. A moment to sit with things and gently ponder. We cannot expect our health and life to flourish if we fail to nourish the deep and divine aspects of ourselves. With all that in mind, my practice includes spiritual life coaching, tarot readings and astrological exploration.


It all started when I was 13. On that year my grandfather spent a few weeks at a holistic nutrition clinic learning how to manage his type-2 diabetes. For my entire life, he had been taking religious doses of insulin but when he returned, he was completely taken off it. I was utterly fascinated. As he ecstatically shared that he had never felt healthier and more energized in his entire life, I felt the call. That was the moment I knew I wanted to be a holistic practitioner. To spend my life providing others with the freedom and joy that my grandfather felt. I began experimenting with different ways of eating and eventually my fascination led me to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. this was where things got interesting… I was learning and thriving while nerding out over my textbooks, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was learning the WRONG things. So, I tried to pivot my perception of food. This led me to discover phytonutrients, the colorful compounds that give food their vibrance and medicinal benefits (for example, the beta-carotene in carrots). Phytonutrients led me to herbalism and before I knew it, the science obsessed nerd that was Maria Bellavia became a Tarot reader, Astrologer and Spiritual Life Coach. A surprise to me, but not the people who knew that I sought out the wisdom of nature whenever I needed guidance. A poetic way of saying that I have been talking to trees since I was a child. I now dive into the spiritually occult just as much, if not more than science. Consulting with both my mind and intuition. This journey into the occult consistently deepens my connection to nature and has drawn me to explore various healing modalities. I actively try to bring these experiences to my clients so that I can support people more wholly; body, mind, heart and soul. If there is anything that I want you to know about me, it is that I am passionate about connecting to and empowering my fellow humans. When you choose to work with me you are aligning with somebody that genuinely wants to dive head first into the needs of your soul. I ask that you bring this same level of acceptance and curiosity as we journey into what healing means for you.
