I’m a Functional Nutritionist and Personal Trainer
Functional nutrition is an approach to nutrition and health care that focuses on supporting the body's optimal functioning through personalized dietary strategies. It emphasizes the interconnectedness of different bodily systems and seeks to address underlying imbalances that may contribute to various health issues.
Symptoms/ Diagnosis I work with:
Mood Disorders Anxiety/Depression
Fatigue and sleep
Various chronic conditions
Key principles of functional nutrition include:
Personalization: Functional nutrition takes into account an individual's unique biochemistry, genetics, lifestyle, and health history.
Root Cause Analysis: Instead of simply addressing symptoms, functional nutrition aims to identify and address the root causes of health issues. This involves looking beyond surface-level symptoms to understand the underlying factors contributing to a person's health concerns.
The 5 R’s
Remove - foods, toxins pathogens
Replace - digestion support
Repopulate - with healthy bacteria
Repair - gut lining
Rebalance - address whole body health; sleep, stress, movement
Functional nutrition places a strong emphasis on consuming whole, nutrient-dense foods that provide essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds. It encourages a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats, and herbs/spices.
The role of the gut in overall health is a central focus of functional nutrition. A healthy gut microbiome is believed to play a crucial role in digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, and even mental health. Functional nutrition often involves strategies to support and maintain a healthy gut.
Functional nutrition may incorporate various therapeutic interventions, such as dietary modifications, supplementation, herbal remedies, and lifestyle changes. These interventions are tailored to the individual's specific health needs and goals.

how it works?
First up, we'll start with a discovery call where we'll get to know each other, chat about your goals, and see if we're a match.
Then, we'll dive into a 1:1 coaching program where I’ll assess your blood work, health history, NAQ, and food journal. Based on that information I will have you work through protocols that address your goals, report of findings and foundational goals for lifestyle, nutrition and stress reduction.

How long will it take to see results from working with you?
Do you take insurance?
Unfortunately nutrition and health coaching are not covered by insurance. Although many of my clients have been able to use their HSA for my programs,, supplements and testing.
No, not always do we need to take out foods to see results. Many times you get to add in more foods! There are those challenging conditions that gluten, dairy and other inflammatory foods do need to be removed for a period of time and can hopefully be reintroduced once the gut healing is complete.
That depends on a variety of factors, including your current habits and goals. However, with commitment and consistency, most people begin to see positive changes within a few weeks to a few months.
