A. I am a Functional Medicine Health Coach and work to support you along your health journey.
Q. What does a typical visit look like with you?
A. The practitioners at Table Health provide crucial medical insight, clarity, and treatment plans, and I can give hands-on support to help the individual implement changes into their everyday life. I help you make lasting lifestyle changes in diet, exercise, stress reduction, sleep, and other modifiable lifestyle factors. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to health so each session is individualized to help you take steps toward optimal health.

A. I really meet you where you are at and believe small habit changes add up. I am really passionate about health coaching and care deeply about helping my clients live well.

Q. Who inspires you?
