Did you know that your body tells a story?

Indeed it does, and that story is continuously being written. Every bite of food you eat, every exposure you encounter, every experience you have, every trauma or injury you endure, every thought you think, and every molecule of air you breathe have been recorded, stored, and “written” as pages in the story of ‘you.’

You are the sum of all of these factors, for better and for worse. 

If you’re living in a body that confuses you, you’re not alone. If, despite your best efforts, your body seems to be working against you, hope is not lost. Maybe your body, mind, and spirit are saying: “The jig is up. Something’s got to give.” If so, congratulations! You’ve reached the proverbial “fork in the road.” You know the one—that deciding moment where two distinct routes are presented: Keep going down the familiar; or brave the unknown. 

I prefer the latter, and my passion is helping you choose the road less traveled—the one that ultimately leads to restoration, balance, and vitality.

My Philosophy as a Functional Practitioner

I understand that everyone is unique; everything is connected; and all things matter. Your body was designed to function brilliantly, and when supported well, it does just that.
Chronic pain, insulin resistance, food allergies, weight loss resistance, hormonal imbalances, IBS, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, skin issues, autoimmune conditions (and every other distress signal or disease state the body displays) are merely symptoms of imbalance that is happening at a foundational level. In truth, by the time symptoms have manifested, the underlying mechanisms of dis-ease have been in the works for decades prior. Is it possible to reset your wellness? You bet!

As an ancient saying warns us, “Maybe you are searching in the branches for what only appears in the roots.” 

My work as a functional nutrition counselor goes much deeper than meal plans and macros. You’ve been there and done that. You see, the symptoms you experience are merely like the branches of a tree. To find out why they are appearing in the first place, you must dig deep into the soil and explore the roots that are supporting that tree. The roots I’m speaking of are: Gut Microbiome, Digestion, Inflammation, and Trauma. When you work with me, you will see how every single symptom you are experiencing can be traced back to these roots. Every. Single. Time. 
When these roots are addressed, symptoms are alleviated, the entire body is restored to balance and proper function….and those wellness goalzzz you set….easy peasy. 

The functionality of all body systems is where healing happens. 

The reality is that when you only target symptoms, you might experience temporary relief….like patching a hole in a leaky bucket. But unless you’ve addressed root causes, that bucket will spring a leak somewhere else.
Imbalance drives imbalance, and this is why trying to figure out confusing symptoms can be so frustrating...like you're perpetually trying to mend that leaky bucket…
You’ve dieted, fasted, cleansed, purged, and supplemented. You’ve jogged, counted steps, googled, measured, and weighed. You’ve been tested, poked, and prodded. Your lab results read like a criminal’s rap sheet, and your wellness woes persist. 
What gives? What’s going on here??
You gotta put on your listening ears and grab a shovel because your symptoms are merely messages from your body, urging you to dig deeper. 

Addressing the roots of wellness is how goals are achieved.

My mission is to help you fully understand and embrace this truth. If this resonates with you, reach out. I’m ready to help.
