It’s funny how you become, over time, the essence of all the parts you used to be. Every struggle I have had in my life has led me here, to help you.
From as early as I can remember, there were signs that my physiology was out of balance. I had repeated ear infections as a child that would not resolve, even with repeated bouts of antibiotics. When I was 10 years old, I was just pudgy enough for my parents to take me to the doctor, who put me on a diet with amphetamines. While I had some success losing weight, I gained as much in emotional baggage in the process as I had lost weight.
And… the weight issue would be an ongoing struggle all my life.

I felt unheard and my concerns sometimes minimized by my doctors. Medications just masked the symptoms, sometimes caused dangerous side effects, and did nothing to get to the root causes of my conditions. I kept getting worse over time, and I began to feel hopeless.
Are you experiencing something similar? You’re not alone if you feel like your body is betraying you and stealing your life away. I’ve been there and I know that I can help you get your life back.
There is hope. Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
It has been a long road to bring me back from being almost flatlined 15 years ago, when I started to unweave the puzzle of me.
It was (and is) that journey that has motivated me to continue to study and research the physical and mental components of the What, Why and How – to understand how we can create balance and allow the body to heal itself and restore health.
Today, I take these complex concepts, and using the information we get from the timeline of your life, along with an in-depth look at your family history, genetics and epigenetics, lifestyle, nutrient deficiencies, detoxification issues, stress levels, gut permeability, food sensitivities and environmental exposures, I connect the dots so it all makes sense to you.
I’m here to support you as I empower you in your pursuit of better health. Over many years, along with the best research and information available, I’ve developed the path to get your life back! It’s time to lose the pain, regain your energy, lose the weight, and restore your health!
More than simply outlining your symptoms, I’ll identify the underlying root causes of your imbalances. No more masking symptoms or pain with medications. I’ll show you how to correct imbalances so your body can finally heal itself.
It’s time to get the answers you’ve been endlessly searching for.
With all of this in hand, I create a targeted personalized program for you that treats the whole person and addresses the root causes behind the symptoms of your health issues. This step by step treatment plan will not only restore your health but will empower you by giving you the skills you need to manage your own health. My ultimate goal is to get you to the day that you don’t need to be my patient anymore!
