Hello and Welcome!

Whether you are beginning your health journey or looking for answers to those frustrating health concerns, you’ve found the right place! At Intellect Health, our mission is to empower you to be well and heal wisely through a science-based, functional medicine approach.

What is Functional Medicine?

I work with individuals to address the root causes of their health challenges and restore whole-body wellness. In a functional medicine approach, we use nutrition and lifestyle to return your body to its optimal health, rather than just cover up symptoms.

Let’s Talk

The best (and easiest) way to get started is to schedule a Health Advocacy Session. I’ll listen to what’s been troubling you and offer some initial insights and observations. We can then discuss if a wellness approach based on Functional Medicine is what will help you feel better again. 

Sometimes we get trapped into replaying the same story about our life and our health. 

Here is the good news.

The past does not have to be a predictor of the future. You get to choose and rewrite your own brand-spanking new story – a story of vibrant health and wellness.
