Here to Treat You
My mission is to give you seeds to plant for your own self-care and wellness. These seeds are the same things I work on every day in my own life, and they are the things that often get lost during a traditional, rushed 15 -minute office visit.

Start your healing journey with me - recover your wellness, find your optimal health and stay well.
After practicing for 19 years in the traditional model of health care, I felt my days were spent putting out fires and giving out band-aids. So much of what I saw every day in my patients is actually preventable, or at least modifiable by diving deep into meaningful lifestyle modification.
So in 2016, I began to explore holistic approaches through functional/integrative medicine. This is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work to together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
Together we can customize a plan that gets to the root cause - incorporating traditional models while focusing on food as medicine, movement and sleep and relaxation.

I look forward to partnering with you on your healing journey. I hope to guide you to the tools you need to take back your health and feel like yourself again.
