Understand Your Body Better & Treat the Root Cause of Issues to Heal Your Gut

I will investigate and treat the underlying cause(s) of an individual’s ailments through functional medicine testing and analyzation to fully understand and treat YOUR symptoms. Functional Medicine is a systems, biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease.  Often time mainstream medicine and doctors use medications to mask symptoms, while not addressing the REAL problem.  I utilize my combined skills as a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Functional Nutritionist to be: 


"Test, don't guess" is a well known adage in Functional Medicine. Testing allows me to confidently determine the underlying factors to YOUR symptoms. Addressing these issues and not just the symptoms leads to more profound and longer-lasting results.


I envision the body as an interconnected whole that is in dynamic relationship to its environment, understanding that it is not a series of separate and independent systems. Recognizing the importance of these connections in health and disease within YOUR body.


I treat the unique client, not the disease. I provide recommendations, treatments and protocols that are highly individualized based on YOUR test results, needs, symptoms, nutrient statuses and more.


Functional Medicine Practitioner + Functional Nutritionist

I help my clients integrate the best of conventional and natural medicine in an evidence-based approach to chronic disease and prevention that puts YOU in control of your health. 

Functional Medicine is a newer model of medicine that is neither “conventional” or “alternative.” It focuses on treating disease from the root cause, and applying a “whole body” treatment plan, not just masking symptoms. Functional Nutrition is a powerful cornerstone to functional medicine. It utilizes food and nutrients as natural medicine to help restore balance, replete nutrient deficiencies, heal the gut, and more. I take the teachings of Functional Medicine and Functional Nutrition to customize individual healing plans based on labs, genetics, values, lifestyle and more. There are no generic meal plans or recommendations, because each individual person is unique, meaning you receive a PERSONALIZED APPROACH specific to your needs and the underlying cause(s) impacting your health today. Some of which may be:

* Gut dysfunction (gas, bloating, IBS, SIBO, IBD, GERD/reflux, celiac disease…)

* Autoimmune and inflammatory disorders (thyroid dysfunction)

* Skin problems (eczema, rosacea, acne, psoriasis…)

* Unexplained fatigue, pain & fibromyalgia, migraines

* Insomnia, depression, anxiety, stress & adrenal dysfunction

* PCOS, PMS, and other hormonal imbalances

* Cardiometabolic disease & risk assessment

* Blood sugar problems like diabetes & pre-diabetes

**Serving the Portland and Scarborough, Maine areas and Remotely**



I use the Functional Medicine “5 R” framework to start healing your gut.


Remove the possible offending foods (i.e. gluten, dairy, other food sensitivities/intolerances etc.)
Remove any gut pathogens and balance the gut microbiome (i.e. bad bacteria, imbalance of bacteria, parasites, candida/fungal infections, etc.)


Replace the factors necessary to optimize digestion (enzymes, etc.)
Replace the vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients in which one is deficient.


Recolonize and restore beneficial bacteria in the gut to reestablish proper microbial balance.


Repair the integrity of the gut mucosa and lining to ensure proper absorption of nutrients.


Rebalance whole body health and lifestyle factors to prevent future GI dysfunction.
