About Me

I didn’t know it at the time but 2017 was when my symptoms began and up until then I was considered a healthy person. My health continued to decline as time went on and I was not able to function at all. I saw a lot of doctors and had tons of tests done but everything came back “normal.” I was a medical mystery and was told to wait and see and was recommended anti-depressants, which left me frustrated.

I had to find out why I was feeling the way I did and get my life back so I kept searching. I then found functional medicine and reasons why I felt ill.

As I’ve continued to heal and make improvements in my own health, I made a promise to myself that I would help and restore hope in others who are struggling too and want something better for themselves so I returned to school.

Since graduating, I have been relentless in learning more and believe I have found my calling in helping people restore their own health in a new paradigm of health care that has helped me so much.

Healing Approach

If you are tired of feeling the way you do; have tried a bunch of things and still have symptoms and health concerns you can’t seem to resolve; or are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start; and want to take back control of your health and heal, I’d love to help you! You deserve to feel amazing and live the life you want.

Motivated by my own health journey, my mission is to help people find the root cause of their health concerns and symptoms, and bring balance back by supporting their body naturally. Using assessments and testing (as needed), we will identify any underlying causes and imbalances and then we will come up with a plan together that is tailored to you to restore your health.

Please let me know how I can help you! Embarking on a health journey and making changes can be really hard - I will be there and encourage you along the way.
