Eat to Thrive Program
My approach to health and healing is looking at the root cause of the program from a functional holistic perspective.
Instead of a restrictive diet, or waiting for your condition to get worse so your doctor can finally prescribe a medication, we focus on the foods that are wholesome and nourishing, foods that provide your body with the nutrients to heal and thrive.
If it will help your body heal, we will eliminate certain foods. If you need therapeutic nutrition supplements, I will device a detailed plan for you.
CONDITIONS I HELP WITH
- Gut discomforts, including gas, bloating, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, low FODMAPs diet
- Gut diseases, including celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, Crohn’s disease, colitis, gastroenteritis

The goal of my Eat to Thrive Program is to get you the RESULTS you desire. Everyone starts with a complimentary Restore your Health Strategy Session so I get to know you, your challenges, and your dreams a little bit more. After the session, if I believe we are the right fit for working together, I will share with you how I can help you best.

WHAT MAKES MY PROGRAM DIFFERENT
My program differs from traditional dietitian or nutritionist visits.
I solely practice functional nutrition. Sometimes that’s also referred to as integrative or holistic. I don’t follow the Food Guide Pyramid or MyPlate. I won’t ever recommend diet or fake foods full of artificial man-made ingredients. I don’t have associations with big food companies that might bias my recommendations. I thoroughly review your labs, often more than your doctors do. If you’re trying to lose weight, I may even give you more food (and you will lose more weight). If you need a supplement, I won’t send you to a retail store to figure it out on your own and end up buying inferior products. I don’t have a one-size-fits all approach to your health and healing.
Working with me is a completely different experience than working with your doctor. At most physicians’ offices, you’re just a number, another patient who’s generating a dollar amount for the units billed. They may tell you that you need to lose weight or give you a diet sheet, but they will not support you in day-to-day challenges, give you meal ideas, listen to your struggles, or brainstorm options when their commonly used therapy doesn’t work. Your doctor isn’t giving you tips for cooking or specific healthy food products to buy. And if you have a question, it’s almost impossible to have an answer unless you physically show up in their office. They just don’t have the time to spend with you on the details of your day.
Even if your physician practices functional or integrative medicine, working with a functional nutritionist offers so much more.
If you don’t want the medicine route for conditions that can be easily managed and even potentially reversed with food, nutrition, and lifestyle, this is exactly the program you need.
I am 100% committed to guide and support you so you can thrive, heal your body, and eliminate your health struggles. This is what I’m asking you to commit to, for YOURSELF:
- Give yourself 4 months to see results (I’m only accepting new clients in a 3-month package model)
- Show up and put the effort needed, whether it is cooking, taking your supplements, obtaining the needed labs, keeping a food diary, practicing relaxation, or exercising.
- Be willing to be coached. You’re in this situation because your doctors are not helping. The information and tips you’re gathering from lots of sources are not helping either. You’re stuck. Have an open mind as we discuss your options.
