Darryl has been involved in alternative medicine for the past thirty years. Following his own personal health crisis in his twenties, he was left sick and bedridden. Allopathic medicine had saved his life but not made him well. Through his own journey to wellness, he discovered that there is a need for a model of treatment that not only offers the best of all available modalities, but also acknowledges the patient, their unique values and their lifestyle. He believes that wellness is best achieved though empowerment of the client.
Darryl managed a health food store for 12 years. He enrolled in or actively participated in over 300 hours of workshops ranging from applied modalities such as acupressure, detoxification, thyroid/adrenal balancing and hormonal balancing to the more esoteric such as energy work, chakra cleansing, and kinesiology. He used this unique blend of knowledge for seven years at NIHA, serving as a medical assistant and detoxification coach.
His success with clients and his thirst for more knowledge to help people help themselves led him to enroll at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) where he achieved a Master’s Degree in Health and Wellness Coaching with a focus in Herbalism. He is currently a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
