What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a patient-focused, individualized, science-based approach that empowers you as the patient to take an active role in your healing. Also known as root cause medicine, the functional medicine approach strives to understand and treat the underlying root of health issues, rather than the symptoms alone.
In functional medicine we believe that your body is an interconnected system, and that no one body part or problem exists in isolation. As your healthcare provider, I am here to listen deeply and help you connect the dots. Through comprehensive testing and in-depth assessments from your family history to your lab results and lifestyle, we will partner together toward your health goals.

A community Approach Toward Whole Health Care
Different parts of the body depend on one another to heal as a whole. In the same way, you deserve an interconnected network of practitioners supporting you toward whole health.
As your healthcare provider I am here to listen to your health goals and help you understand your body through active listening, comprehensive assessment, and detailed testing. At times, your unique care plan will require the input of a specialist — practitioners in acupuncture; massage; IV vitamins and other holistic therapies.
When you see me at Alive + Well you’ll gain access to a rounded-out team of compassionate experts here to treat you, body and mind, through conventional and holistic techniques.
