Hi! I am a licensed dietitian nutritionist with an "integrative" or "functional" approach. That means I apply evidence-based nutrition science to support the body as a whole instead of trying to address a single symptom or system. I am also a certified LEAP therapist dietitian, which means I am trained to design and supervise custom elimination diets. My practice focus areas include: gastrointestinal (GI) conditions such as IBS and IBD; autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthiritis (RA) and Hashimoto's; stubborn weight issues; food sensitivities, and other chronic inflammatory conditions in both adults and children.
Through my family's own health struggles with autoimmune disease, celiac disease, ADHD, and multiple food sensitivities, I became interested in the power of nutrition as an adjunct therapy to medical treatment. I completed my Master's Degree in Human Nutrition at Winthrop University, and pursued a nutrition license so that I could help others and share what I've learned.
Please let me know how I can help you along your journey to optimal health!
