As a documentary filmmaker from New England, I’ve had the honor to interview some of the world’s most inspiring functional medicine doctors, nutrition experts and researchers such as Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Alessio Fasano and Dr. Bruce Lipton for a series of films about food, natural healing and longevity.  

These films introduced me to the power of Functional Medicine and motivated me to enroll in a life changing training program at the School of Applied Functional Medicine to become a Functional Medicine Practitioner.

So what is Functional Medicine exactly?  Functional Medicine gets to the root cause of any dis-ease in the body, instead of only treating the symptoms.  As a practitioner, when I work with a client, I look at diet, movement, stress, sleep, joy, hormones, gut health, labwork and even mindset to truly optimize health.   

The beauty of Functional Medicine is that it utilizes progressive lab testing, scientific research, and provides a holistic view of all systems in the body.  In my practice, I’ve supported clients with digestive (gut) issues, cancer, autoimmune diseases, hormonal challenges, anxiety, depression and more.

I look forward to speaking with you for a free 15 minute consult to see if functional medicine is right for you.  

Here’s to your health!
