As an FDN-Practitioner, I can serve as your practitioner to get you started on your Functional Medicine Journey.
At the end of your initial visit I will recommend which lab tests to order to identify underlying causes. Conditions typically screened for and treated include gut dysbiosis, candida overgrowth, bacterial overgrowth, parasites, mold exposure, food sensitivities, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut.
The approach is client specific, lab results and client consulation will determine what the best treatment protocol will be.
My approach to health and wellness is focused on diet, rest, exercise, stress, and supplementation.
What is an FDN-P?
The purpose of a FDN is to help people investigate and resolve the underlying causes and conditions at the root of their health complaints. When data from lab tests are correctly interpreted along with other clues, the healing opportunities are revealed.
FDN is a type of detective work that seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to your health complaints.

I also serve as the Functional Medicine Health Coach for his practice and all of his active patients will 2 coaching sessions each month as a part of his package! He can also be utilized as a resource for any of my clients who need to see an MD, or for those cases that are outside my scope of practice.
For local clients, I do offer grocery shopping sessions and dining sessions to help them learn how to read labels, shop efficiently, plan meals, and order off of a menu. I have found that these dietary and lifestyle changes are hardest to maintain in public and social situations. By teaching my clients how to order off of mainstream menus, they are empowered by being able to enjoying their social life while staying committed to their healing!
Session frequency is determined by you. Some clients prefer a weekly check in, others prefer monthly. You may find you need more frequent check-ins at the beginning and fewer as time goes on. Your sessions never expire, so you set the pace depending on your personal needs.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to working with you!
