Our Approach

My Approach

I believe that we have far more control over our health and well-being than we ever believed before. After years of dealing with undiagnosed illness, poorly managed autoimmunity, burnout, misdiagnosed food allergies, and chronic fatigue, I discovered Functional Medicine and completely changed my own life.

I use Functional Medicine to approach each person individually - look at their lifestyle, stress levels, biochemistry, genetics, and other characteristics to find the root cause of their health issues. Then I partner with them to develop long term solutions to meet their needs. I work with a variety of Functional Medicine clients - from those that wish to functionally correct their chronic conditions, to those that simply want to optimize their health.

Our Story

My specialties include using a variety of therapies and techniques for chronic conditions, autoimmune disorders, male and female health, digestive disorders, depression, anxiety, and fatigue. I utilize a variety of tools including laboratory testing, nutritional assessment, lifestyle changes, supplementation, and botanical medicine.


My goal is to give you the tools that you need to help yourself; to function as a facilitator to help you achieve optimal health and well-being.

I'm happy to provide Functional Medicine services throughout the Portland metro area through home visits - and any other location through telemedicine.

My Education

My education includes a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from North Carolina State University, a Masters in Nutrition and Functional Medicine from University of Western States, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from National University of Health Sciences.

My Interests
Some of my research studies include Vitamin D and other Vitamins, Asthma, Food Allergies, Autoimmune disorders, Male and Female health, Nutrition, Botanical Medicine, Neurotransmitters, and Psychobiotics.

I feel strongly that in order to provide the best care possible to my patients, it's imperative that I continuously research, as well as partner with them to get the best possible results.

Together, we find the cause and we fix it.
