Are you willing to take a new direction in your healing?

Where you are at this moment does not have to be your forever. You are not your disease and you do not need to lose yourself in your journey to wellness. Your illness is not your everything, it does not define you. And while you might feel powerless at this moment, you hold the power to healing your body.

ARE YOU:

  • Annoyed by doctors telling you that there isn’t anything wrong with you when you KNOW that something isn’t right?

  • Frustrated that doctors, who barely know you, are telling you it’s all in your head?

  • Feeling overwhelmed by a health diagnosis that has turned your world upside down and now you need a freaking plan?

  • Discouraged by all of the lab testing that seem to give you exactly zero answers?

  • Exhausted from doctor shopping...it’s worse than dating.

  • Overwhelmed by trying to manage your illness all by yourself? Cue the Celine Dion...

  • Feeling like it’s impossible to lose or gain weight?

  • Concerned about your health to the point that it is beginning to affect your relationships?

  • Tired of not being supported?

  • Feel like you are constantly eliminating food from your diet but still reacting to everything? I mean, you can survive on chicken and broccoli, but is that really the life you want?

  • Managing a health condition that is getting worse: hypothyroid, acid reflux, acne, celiac disease, adrenal fatigue, hair loss, bloating, constipation, anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue, lyme disease, obesity, brain fog, food sensitivities, environmental allergies, skin irritations/rashes?

Are you fed up with being sick and tired? Are you ready to hit the reset button on your health?

Have you researched everything but feel unsure how to actually put it into practice?

I know you because I WAS you

  • You have symptoms of an autoimmune or chronic disease, but no one seems to be able to put the puzzle together.
  • You feel stuck. You feel like you are becoming your illness.
  • You find yourself in tears wondering what the heck is wrong with how and how you are ever going to fix it.
  • When you have a setback or a flare you tend to lose your cool and freak out.

Do you want to feel healthier, vibrant, and enthusiastic about life but you have no idea where to start or what to do to get there?

If you are having a moment of clarity right now, then get ready, because your life is about to change! If you are interested in becoming a team player in your own healing and you want to regain control of your life and health, then you are in the right place!

I have been exactly where you are right now. I know what it feels like when no one understands or supports you at a time when that’s the thing you need most. I see you. What I learned along the way was that being a team player in my own healing, addressing my mindset about my situation, and taking a holistic approach, allowed me to push the reset button on my health and finally begin to heal...for real.

It wasn’t always this way, I had to rebuild and reframe along the way in order to find a way of healing that worked for me and my body.

In 2014 my health began to deteriorate and I began to understand that diet wasn’t necessarily the whole story no matter what the media or my doctor told me - “eat this not that,” “eat less, to lose weight,” “count calories so you stop gaining weight.” I spent months being bounced from doctor to doctor with zero answers. Tired? Take a nap. Digestive upset? Stop eating whatever food made you feel that way. Gaining weight? Write down what you eat so you don’t overeat. Sore muscles and achy joints? Stop exercising.

Those were not the answers I wanted to hear nor were they the answers that would actually solve any of my issues. I literally begged for a diagnosis of any condition that I could take a pill for and feel better.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with a reactivated mononucleosis infection (due to the Epstein-Barr virus), adrenal fatigue, and borderline hypothyroid. But what I did not get with my diagnosis was any sort plan to help me feel better.

I now know that blanket diet recommendations aren’t enough (and diet itself often cannot solve all the things). We need so much more.

 

If you want to heal your body, food is your medicine and self-care is your lifeline.


My Approach:

As a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Paleo foodie, research and science junkie, endurance athlete, and chronic fatigue survivor, I have studied and used most of the major dietary theories and self-care practices and I will help you discover what approach (or combination of approaches) will work best for you.

I practice functional medicine which means that my approach is holistic and I look at how all the systems in your body and all areas of your life are connected. Total wellness and long-term health is achieved by combining food, movement, and self-care practices in a way that fits into your life.

If you want a program that is truly individualized to your needs and will get you from “here” to “there,” then I’ve been waiting for you.

I’m so happy you’re here.

My approach is also perfect for those who are feeling well but are invested in preventing disease well into in the future. We can assess your risk factors and give you tools for optimal health.

What is not included?

I do not diagnose or treat any disease, or manage your medications if we are working together remotely. I can make specific recommendations for testing that your doctor or local healthcare provider can order or places you can go to order certain tests without a physician. I can also help you better understand any disease you may have already been diagnosed with as well as ways to prevent, mitigate, or treat a disease. I can also make recommendations for supplements, dietary, and lifestyle changes that may help you work with your provider to decrease or get off of some medications.  

Do you bill insurance?

I do not bill insurance. I can provide you with a receipt for your payment, but even though I am a nurse practitioner, this program may not be considered therapeutic and your health insurance will not likely cover it. 

Can we discuss diseases?

Yes, we can discuss diseases. There is no need to avoid mentioning the word disease or the names of specific diseases. We do need to agree that I am not offering diagnosis, treatment, or treatment advice. However, I can provide you with education about what I believe the causes to be, ways to prevent or treat diseases, as well as making specific recommendations of what to discuss with your doctor.

Can you suggest specific providers for specific lab tests?

Yes. Sometimes I will know the best option and sometimes it will require some research on my part to figure out the logistics associated with specific providers. I offer research between sessions for the health and wellness packages, but not for the hourly consultations.

Can you analyze stool tests?

I am familiar with stool tests and I may be able to provide valuable insights.

What if my schedule changes after I have made my appointments?

You can reschedule your appointment at any time. 

Can we conduct our appointment via email instead of phone or video chat? 

When you purchase a package, I offer limited email support to allow for clarifications, answers to quick questions, and briefly discussing priorities for how to use future sessions. I unfortunately cannot substitute email discussions for the sessions themselves. 

If my schedule doesn’t fit the slots available in the calendar, are you flexible with other days?

Currently I can only commit to the slots that are in the calendar. They are designed to offer flexibility for time of day across many time zones. Please note, that the scheduling software I use does the time zone translation for you automatically and shows you time slots your own time zone.
