helping you thrive.

Let’s work together to get to the root cause.

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.

— Naeem Callaway.


You felt in control of your health

You had more energy

You fell asleep easier, stayed asleep and woke up refreshed

Your gut was healed and annoying symptoms were eliminated

You felt empowered because you had support to help you make the changes your doctor prescribed

You were treated like a whole person, not a disease

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is the practice of patient centered wellness, not disease centered care.  It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.  Functional medicine looks at a patient’s history and the interactions between genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors that can all influence their long-term health and wellness. At it’s most simple definition, “It works on the roots, so the entire body can thrive.”

So, what exactly is a Functional Medicine Health Coach?

We are just that, coaches, we do not diagnose or prescribe, but rather help to educate, simplify, encourage and empower our clients towards lasting change. Functional Medicine Health Coaches are the support system that helps clients achieve the goals that their physicians are looking for.

Whether we are working along with your Functional Medicine Practitioner or with your independent health goals our strategies are the same. We help you to identify areas of change, create a practical and realistic plan and support you as you make your plan a reality.


It all starts with you!  Your story + Your strengths + Your interests + Your goals = A thriving you.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.

– Thomas Edison

A Resource for my Thyroid Clients (or a cookbook for anybody)

My blog has been really quite this past year.  There are a lot of reasons for this, but I have been growing my coaching practice and also shifting more content sharing to social media platforms.  That being said, I am still going to use the blog to share resources and...

Grain Free Veggie Pizza

So we have had an overabundance of broccoli at our house. My husband and I mixed up items on our grocery list and on the same day I bought a few heads of organic broccoli from Earthfare  (they have had it on sale all month for $0.99) and he bought two huge bags of...

Kitchen Essentials :: Items I Use Everyday

I was asked a few weeks ago about my kitchen. Specifically, what tools could I not live without? And what would my dream kitchen look like? I actually love my kitchen. It’s an open concept and I don’t feel like I am stuck in a room away from people while I am cooking....

Protein Breakfast Bites

By the time I get to Friday mornings, I have pretty much run out of inspiration for breakfast.  While I typically eat a protein smoothie, I am always looking for ideas to feed my growing boys, that are loaded with healthy fats and fiber, but eggs get boring quickly...

A Snapshot of Life: Packing Lunches

This year one of my goals is to share more about our daily lives.  From the little things, like where I shop, how I buy in bulk, what school lunches look like, what snack time looks like etc. So today, I thought I would share a quick picture of my 1st graders school...

Our Favorite Cookie – Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of my favorite childhood memories was making chocolate chip cookies with my mom. We used to make the traditional Toll House recipe off the back of a bag of Nestle chocolate chips.  While things have changed dramatically in our house from those day (no flour, no...

Strawberry Vanilla Chia Smoothie

My favorite protein powder for smoothies is chocolate...but since we have been doing a lot of smoothies I have been trying to switch it up.  I decided to grab a jar of the Vega Vanilla Protein & Greens the last time it was on sale at our local Earthfare.  While I like...

Our Favorite Breakfast Smoothie – Blueberry Chocolate Spinach

At the end of October, my husband and I decided to do a 21 day cleanse.  We didn't follow any mainstream cleanses in which they try to sell product (I am not a fan), but we basically followed the principles set by Dr. Alejandro Junger and his Clean Gut Cleanse & his...

A Favorite Quick Lunch – Zucchini Pizza Boats (gluten-free)

Pizza is a favorite to almost all kids.  Our family loves pizza night, but being a completely gluten-free family, homemade pizza is both expensive and a little time consuming (and pre-made gluten free pizza...well, many resemble cardboard). So one of our favorite...
