I use Functional Medicine and Health and Wellness Coaching to guide our sessions together. Functional medicine is a medical model that looks for root causes to your symptoms or health condition. These may include nutritional deficiencies, toxins, genetics, infections, poor or inadequate sleep, high levels of stress, and lack of movement. Through individualized nutrition, physical activity, supplementation (as needed), stress reduction, improving sleep, and reducing environmental toxins, you'll feel better. As a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, I partner with you to make lasting changes that support your values, your dreams, and your goals. Because you're an expert on yourself, we work TOGETHER to design ways to improve your health, wellness, and overall well-being.
I grew up an athlete, and was blessed with great health. When I was 32, I was bit by a tick and got Lyme Disease. This was a life changer. For the first time in my life, my body seemed to be failing me and I couldn't do whatever I wanted. I was tired, sick, and depressed. I was already working as a dietitian and believed I knew a bit about fueling my body for health. My Lyme diagnosis took several years, and during that time, I went from doctor to doctor looking for an answer. It was through my failing health that I discovered functional medicine and started on my road to recovery. I learned how to really use food, sleep, modulate stress, and support my healing. I use functional medicine, a root cause approach to healing, as the basis of my practice.
I have a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and Food Science. I've worked as an inpatient Clinical Dietitian, as a Nutrition Support Specialist (specializing in tube feedings and intravenous feedings), and a Diabetes Educator/Dietitian in an outpatient setting. I've also taught several classes at the university level, including Nutrition, Upper Level Metabolism, and Sports Nutrition. I developed three doctorate level functional medicine classes for Huntington University of Health Sciences. I have co-authored three books and authored several journal articles on various topics. I'm a Certified Health and Wellness Coach through Wellcoaches School of Coaching as well as the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaches.

You deserve to feel great! During our time together in this first session, I spend time with you listening to your history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence your long-term and short-term health and wellness. I use a combination of functional medicine and coaching techniques to work with you to experience the health you desire.
Rome wasn't built in a day. In our follow up sessions, we'll work together to find solutions so you can reach the health you desire.
I only recommend products from manufacturers who have gained my confidence through considerable research and experience. She determines quality by considering: (1) the quality of science behind the product; (2) the quality of the ingredients themselves; (3) the quality of the manufacturing process; and (4) the synergism among product components. The brands of supplements that I recommend are those that meet my high standards and tend to produce predictable results.
As seen in the healthiest populations on the planet, attaining the highest level of health and wellness requires the consumption of a large diversity of plants. Dr. Cowan's vegetable powders make it easy and convenient to consume a much greater variety of nutrients.

The Biomat® is a “pad” that lies on top of a massage table, your couch, or your home mattress. It uses Far Infrared Rays (FIR), which penetrates 6-8 inches into the innermost recesses of the body, reducing stress and fatigue. The Biomat also produces negative Ions, which stimulate all of the cell membranes of the body. This helps to alkalize all cells by removing cellular waste and toxins, and also cause a sense of deep relaxation in the mind and body.
Includes carrying case and control panel. Pillow not included.
The compact size of the MiniMat makes this a perfect companion for on-the-go or if you want a smaller mat. You can get the same great benefits of the full size Biomat, but in a more compact size.
