I know what it feels like to be a patient in need of a healthcare provider who listens. I found Functional Medicine when I was in search of a resolution to my own health challenges and was failed by a conventional approach to medicine. Through a Functional Medicine approach, I was able to take control of my life and rediscover vital health.

More than 15 years experience as a Nurse Practitioner at Johns Hopkins Hospital and my extensive education in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine has given me the foundation to empower you to discover wellness and vitality the same way I have. I am passionate about helping people to understand the connection between their nutrition, relationships, environment and other lifestyle choices to their health. It is my mission to guide each patient along the journey of discovering the root causes of their illness and helping them to develop a plan to feel better and be well again.

What is Functional Medicine?

The Functional Medicine approach addresses the root causes of disease by engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. This patient centered approach to health care focuses on the whole person rather than a set of symptoms, which is typical in today’s health care system.
