HOW I WORK
It’s time to reclaim your health and expand your capacity beyond what was previously accessible to you.
Some people come in with an idea of what they want to work on or look deeper into and others are simply overwhelmed by the constellation of symptoms in various systems of their body.
For the latter, it honestly feels like so much to figure out when you feel like you may be near or at your rock bottom. The most difficult thing is to look at the big picture when you are living the details from day-to-day.
My approach is much different than the 17.4 minute average visit with your doctor that you may have experienced in your health journey. My favorite part is treating people, not just patients. You simply cannot get a grasp of a person and where they have come from in 17.4 minutes.
To become a patient, follow these simple steps:
Wait for a follow-up email or phone call from from my office. We’ll be in touch shortly.
Together you and someone from my team will find the best way (in-person or virtual), along with the best day/time for your initial consultation.
She'll provide you with the necessary health history forms and answer any questions you may have.
I aim to break the mold of your past experience with doctors and healthcare.

Here’s how we’ll work together...
I aim to break the mold of your past experience with doctors and healthcare. The process begins with a 60-minute initial consultation (in-person or virtual) that most patients remark to be their most comprehensive yet. I’ll review any previous lab work or imaging and take time to listen to your story to understand where you need support. At this initial visit, we will both agree upon any necessary follow-up testing and/or treatment.
After gathering more data, we begin to put the puzzle pieces together combining your story with numbers to better grasp the bigger picture. At this 60-minute follow-up consultation, we may decide we need to gather more information to fill in any blanks. My goal is to help you understand the inner workings of your body as this will support you in making the necessary changes to move the needle.
When working with chronic complex diseases, it is not uncommon that the beginning is slower as we put the pieces together. It’s like a plane taking off the ground… it doesn’t hit cruising altitude right away.
The ultimate goal is to look back every few months realizing you continue to feel better overall. In these scenarios, thoughtful forward steps can go a long way. These consultations are on average 30 minutes every 6 - 10 weeks depending on the next steps of the program.
As time progresses, we build on our treatments until we are able to stabilize and/or restore the body.
