Owner & Founder

My method of treatment has evolved with practice and experience. After years of working with patients and discovering that pain isn’t always mechanical, I began identifying patterns. Certain patients were experiencing pain that wouldn’t heal with physical medicine. I began diving deeper into potential underlying causes, looking at internal, biochemical patterns along with emotional burdens and past traumas. Once these areas were addressed, the areas of pain healed!

We must remember that our bodies hold onto all of our life experiences and emotions. It is a crucial aspect in treating the whole person. There are three areas where chronic illness stems: chemical, mechanical and emotional. Click here to read my blog post on The Triad of Health.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Functional Medicine: I began taking Functional Medicine courses while in school to get my Doctorate. Weekends were spent learning about autoimmunity, gut health, neurology, and blood chemistry. I worked in a Functional Neurology and Functional Medicine clinic for 1.5 years while in school getting real life exposure to patient experience and on-sight lab analysis. Functional Medicine education is an ongoing process between continuing education and patient experience. My current weekends are still spent learning, while also educating the public! It is a fun and rewarding profession to help people on a deeper level.

DNS Rehabilitation (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization):DNS focuses on the human developmental process and the neural connections made during each major developmental milestone in one’s life….from first lifting your head off the floor, to getting into the crawling position, and learning to stand on your own. These are the FIRST neural pathways of movement that are formed, making this type of rehab functional and applicable to every person.

Traditional Chinese Medicine: I am a Board-Certified 100-hour Acupuncturist here in Colorado. I was taught Traditional Acupuncture along with adjunct therapies, such as electroacupuncture, dry needling and Chinese cupping. Looking at your health from both a Western and Eastern perspective allows a comprehensive approach to treatment.
