Functional Nutrition For You!
I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Health. I am board certified as a nutrition specialist (CNS) as well as a licensed dietitian nutritionist (LDN) . My approach is rooted in the tenants of functional medicine, which means I believe in treating the whole person and working to eradicate the root cause of your complaint. Using food as medicine and key supplements individualized for you, we will work together to help you achieve optimal heath and wellness.
I believe that you can be well again.
I believe you are capable of change.
I believe your story is valuable and worth hearing.
So many practitioners treat supplements like a “natural drug”, prescribing a different one for each complaint. But, when you stop taking them, you’re back to square one because you haven’t addressed the underlying issue! I do not believe that supplements are a magic bullet or a cure for any medical condition or health complaint, though they may be very helpful when used therapeutically. I will often recommend some key therapeutic supplements, but they will never be used to put a band-aid on your symptoms.
My areas of expertise include:
- Digestive health complaints including SIBO, IBS, IBD (Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s), and GERD
- Autoimmune conditions
- Natural Hormone Balance
- General Health and Weight Management
Please note that I am not a diagnostician or a doctor. I do not diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease, disorder or medical condition. It is highly recommended that you remain under the care of a medical practitioner or primary care physician while working with me. I am open to collaborating with your current medical provider if necessary.
