My Story

Photo%20Jen%20(1)_edited.jpg

A decade ago I experienced a radical health transformation. I was exhausted, depleted, and struggling to live the life I dreamed about. I spent years trying everything conventional medicine taught me to do. I was motivated to change, but nothing seemed to work. This was not the vision I had for my life or for the life of my family. I started on a journey to find a new way forward.  

What I discovered was functional medicine. Functional medicine goes beyond the surface and seeks the root cause of health dysfunction. I studied hormones, gut health, nutrition, stress, immune function and adrenal fatigue. I radically changed my diet. I became excited about exercise. I began to reduce stress through good sleep habits.  I sought connection through relationships and pouring into others. I not only regained my health but found emotional freedom. I now have freedom to dream about what comes next.

I am no longer satisfied with treating symptoms. Your body was created to do amazing things and my goal is to help you heal, transform and find freedom.

Our mission is simple...

"But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds" ~ Jeremiah 30:17

We are a missional service. We seek to care well for those around us.  We welcome anyone to use our service--regardless of faith or belief. You are welcome here.  We simply want you to know why we do what we do.  

Areas Of Focus

Mental Health
Thyroid Health

Together, we take a deep dive into your physical health. I use traditional and functional labs to determine the underlying cause of imbalance and often recommend nutritional changes along with vitamins and supplements to support your healing process. I go beyond traditional thyroid and hormone labs and take a comprehensive look at how your body is functioning. 

"Let food be thy medicine," Hippocrates. 

Do you know that changing your nutrition and exercise patterns can change your life?  This is my mission--to help you and your family discover the right nutritional solution and an activity program that fits your life. This approach can be transformative in conditions such as eczema, allergies, hyperactivity, autism, gut issues and any condition with inflammation at the core. This is the perfect start for young patients. 

Mental health is not just about your brain. Your body, your environment, and your history all play a role.  I work with you to figure out how we can address all of these issues in the healing process. I use supplements and traditional medications along with nutrition and lifestyle to achieve ideal health. Those that are ready to jump all in will see the biggest benefits.  If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and are ready for a different approach, I would love to help you get there.
