I’m an FDN-P and FMCA (Functional Medicine Health Coach) specializing in the gut and how it affects your overall health. I don’t diagnose disease or treat symptoms. Think of me like a health detective and wellness coach working in partnership with you to uncover the root cause of your chronic symptoms to restore your well-being. I help you to implement necessary lifestyle changes uncovered through our work together. We start by exploring your lifestyle habits which include: how you eat, how you sleep, how you move your body, what you do for stress reduction and how (or if) you support your body with essential nutrients as needed. We determine what functional testing is appropriate to help uncover further healing opportunities. Through this exploration we discover what your specific needs are and create a self-healing protocol just for you.
I became a wellness coach because of my own health history and my dedication and passion to feeling well, without masking symptoms through medication. Like many of my clients, I’ve experienced chronic and debilitating GI symptoms, that sometimes left me unable to go out of the house. I’ve been given “diagnoses” like IBS, Crohn’s, SIBO and Fibromyalgia. Periodically I suffered from chronic headaches, vertigo, fatigue and anxiety.
After this very long struggle with ongoing GI problems, (and other seemingly unrelated symptoms) and hearing things from doctors like, “It’s all in your head” “are you stressed?” “the tests are negative” “your blood results are in range” and “take these pills”, I took matters into my own hands. I was sick of being unwell, and I sought help through functional medicine. As a result, I learned that healing can take place.
I recognized that so many of us are coping with chronic issues that we believe, or have been told, are “normal”. With this in mind and my personal experience, it became clear that I needed to help others navigate the exhausting maze of chronic symptoms using the resources, education and passion I have for healing.
Let’s get started, so you too—can heal your body and say hello again to vibrant health!
