My Story

For decades I struggled with a long list of chronic health complaints and illness; hormonal issues, acne, digestive issues, anxiety, addictions and depression to name a few. After years of following the advice of doctors and realizing that conventional medicine does not get to the root cause and is only offering me pills and countless antibiotics, I decided to chose a different path that would transform my life.  It became clear to me that in order to fully heal I needed to learn how the human body works and how to take care and nourish my body.  So I made the decision to enroll in Chinese medicine and holistic nutrition school and that started my healing journey….


I’m passionate about medicine that is natural, evidence-based & effective. Sessions with me are unique because I combine the healing methods I have learned to bring each patient personalized and comprehensive care. My goal is to get to the ROOT CAUSE of your health issues.


Where disease comes from:​

  • Pathogens & Stealth infections (lyme, Epstein Barr, Borrelia, H Pylori, parasites etc)

  • Environmental Chemicals/ Pesticides

  • Heavy metals (Lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium etc) 

  • Mold and mycotoxin exposure

  • Emotional Trauma 

  • Malnutrition

All epigenetic changes come from these places. Once you figure out the root cause you take a whole new healing perspective. 
My goal as a practitioner is to enlighten and educate. How can you heal yourself if you aren’t aware of the root cause?
