You are so much more than your diagnosis.

I believe in focusing on the whole self 

to improve health & wellness.

It's what helped me. 

And I'm here to help you. 

After feeling defeated by my own life-disrupting digestive health struggles & not wanting to be defined by them, I knew there had to be more out there than prescriptions and unproductive appointments.

I knew that if I was feeling this way, there had to be other women out there who also wanted to take charge of their health, not be defined by their diagnosis, and work with a provider who actually cared about them and understood where they're coming from.  

When I added 2 hours onto a 4 hour road trip due to my own pain and unpredictable digestive distress, I knew I had to do something more to figure this out.


Conventional medicine just wasn't working for me. Combining the endless appointments, ultrasounds, CT, labs, and prescriptions that didn't provide any meaningful solution, I knew there had to be more out there than what I learned in school.  All my labs were "normal" so I was left with the generic "try this. See if that works" recommendations.


I couldn't stand to hear "I don't know or try this" one more time from one of many providers I saw.  

After much research, I became immersed in the world of functional nutrition and developed my own customized framework using the gold-standard in anti-inflammatory eating that has helped me enjoy all that life has to offer instead of being held captive by my symptoms.  

I believe the perfect time for change is always today.


My practice is built on a foundation of compassion, empathy,  service, the passion for what's possible with an integrative approach and the commitment to improve women's lives through customized nutrition. 

I'm here to help guide you with a major shift in your lifestyle; one that you can maintain for the long haul.

I don't believe in diets. I believe in long-term sustainable lifestyle changes. 

I'm here to help you reach your highest levels of wellness and tap into the strength within you to make these lifestyle changes with ease and confidence. I believe in you and I'd love to have you apply for a Strategy Session as your first step on your path to wellness. 


I also believe that we are busy enough. As women, I feel we have the instinct and drive to do everything, care for everyone and try to do it all, being the best we can. But, sometimes, that means things fall  through the cracks. And, more often than not it tends to be our health.


I get how busy life is trying to manage career, health and family. This is the exact reason why I decided to establish my practice as telehealth (online). You don't need to try squeezing one more thing into your already busy day. I'm here to meet you where you are, face-to-face from the comfort of your own space.


I'm also so grateful that you took a read through this about page. If we're not connected in the online space yet, check my pages out on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.


And if you want more info on Wellness Wednesdays, get on my Lifestyle List, it's where it’s at. You'll mostly hear from me on Wednesdays to share all things integrative health and wellness. 

In health and gratitude, 

Dr. Kate
