I’m an Integrative & Functional Dietitian-Nutritionist whose passion is guiding client transformation – from feeling uncomfortable, frustrated, and confused to having vibrant energy, clarity in their own best diet, and feeling more comfortable in their bodies. Nutrition is only one part of the puzzle, so we bring in sustainable lifestyle changes, botanical medicine, and transformational health & mindset coaching. This approach is responsible for the incredible success clients achieve. Using critical thinking skills and the principles of functional medicine, I assist clients in uncovering the root cause of health and wellness struggles.
