Welcome to my site!


Eliminate the guess work from your health challenges.

Discover the underlying causes and a long-term solution instead of just treating symptoms.

 Have you been to doctors and their lab results indicate ‘there’s nothing wrong with you’? Have you been told ‘you’ll just have to live with it’, ‘this is what getting older feels like’ or worst yet: ‘it’s all in your head’?  

If you are chronically stressed, fatigued or have a lot of symptoms then your body is telling you something.

I use Functional Diagnostic Nutrition.  This holistic approach is an emerging field and body of work which bridges the gap between clinical nutrition and functional medicine. It is a type of detective work which seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions which lead to health complaints.  Once we identify the root causes or what I call, healing opportunities, we then work with all natural protocols to build health. It is a model of care which does NOT compete with the medical (allopathic) model of care.


Does this approach sound intriguing?  Would you like to learn more. If you're interested in having a conversation then please call me at 805.277.1977 or Click Here to schedule an appointment.
