Welcome to my Practice!
I am an Adult Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) with almost 40 years of clinical experience. During that time, I have dedicated 34 years specifically to the prevention of disease and the promotion of health and wellness. The focus of my practice is to assist you in prevention, reversal or reduction of potentially chronic health issues.
For the past 4 years, I have been working with the Institute for Functional Medicine. The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches physicians and practitioners to search for the underlying cause of health issues (not simply treat symptoms) and how to support the body to heal itself. Supporting the body’s natural processes often times allows clients to reduce or eliminate the need for some medications. Finding this institute has been a breath of fresh air for me and thousands of other practitioners, not to mention appreciative clients now enjoying a healthier, happier, more satisfying life.
Nutritional and Environmental factors are at the heart of giving the body the tools it needs with which to be healthy. I call this “Foundational Medicine”, because whole, real food and a healthy environment are the foundation for living in a vital, healthy state of wellbeing.
When needed, nutraceutical supplements (specific nutrients that support body function) may be added to support the body’s return to its naturally healthy state.
I look forward to working with you.
