I Believe



That there are two types of foods:                                                                                       
"Foods That Feed Us" (Lifestyle Choices) & the "Foods On Our Fork" (Nutritional Choices)

That when these two types of foods are "balanced" we have:                                         
"Fire Within Us" (The feeling of Living Life on Purpose with Passion)

I believe that: Foods That Feed Us + Foods on Our Forks = Fire Within Us



That "Illness is an Imbalance" between the Foods that Feed Us + the Foods On Our Fork.

This "imbalance" causes the Fire Within Us to become nothing more than a Faint Flicker.



That when we understand how "Food Meets Function" (how these two types of foods, meet the way our bodies function), then we can rebalance our bodies, and we can learn to turn our "Illness Into Wellness" 



That we all want to Get Well, Stay Well, Look Good & Feel Good!  'How about you?


I Believe that Functional Medicine
is the Medicine of the Future 


All of my training is based in Functional Medicine - which is a new and exciting way to approach and practice Medicine! 

If you haven't heard of it yet, stay tuned, because you will soon see that everyone will be asking to work with those of us who study and practice with Functional Medicine! As you most likely know we are currently facing a health crises! I once heard the definition of insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different outcomes! That is the situation that we are in now; we are treating people the same way, and getting the same results, and yet, we as a nation are getting sicker and sicker! 

In Functional Medicine, we are doing things differently! And, we are getting different results! As a matter of fact, we are getting great results! Functional Medicine is a partnership between you, the patient and your practitioners (That includes me. I will be on your team!) 

Functional Medicine is focused on wellness - not illness. We look for the underlying causes of your "dis-ease" rather than handing you another diagnosis or treating your ill with a pill. We are swimming upstream and looking for the root causes of your illness, rather than simply suppressing your symptoms. We treat the whole person, listen to their whole story, and create an individualized and personalized plan for wellness.

As a Functional Medicine Nutritionist & Lifestyle Practioner, I understand and appreciate that "Illness is an Imbalance". I support my clients in helping them to create a balance in their lives, in both the "Foods that Feed them" (Lifestyle) and the "Foods on their Forks" (Nutrition). I teach my clients how their bodies function. When we understand how our "Food Meets Function" - how these two types of foods, meets the way our bodies function, then we understand how to turn "Illness Into Wellness".

Back in 460 B.C., Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, once said "Let Food be thy Medicine" and he was spot on! Hippocrates also wisely said, "Our bodies have the ability to heal themselves if given the right circumstances".

Would you like to know what the right circumstances are for you and your body? I would love to teach you. That is why I created my proprietary system, "The Seven Stepping Stones Signature System". I created this to help you, to heal your health, by walking through these Seven Stepping Stones. I serve and support my clients who are just like me and just like you. I will be your bridge that will take you to where you want to go. Allow me to teach you the tools of how to walk your way to wellness. I would be honored to be your Functional Medicine Nutritionist & Lifestyle Practitioner. Let me be that person for you, that I wish I had there for me.
