An Invitation to Heal Your Body, Mind, & Spirit
Are you or someone you know struggling with chronic pain, fatigue, gut issues, hormonal imbalances, and other symptoms? You’ve likely seen a handful of doctors and medical specialists, tried a variety of medications, and are still struggling to feel better. You may be bombarded with conflicting information about how to heal and restore the body and unsure what to do next.
Unfortunately, this experience is all too common and something we have personally struggled with as we sought to restore our own health. That’s why we feel a responsibility to share our hope for healing and help you in the process.
Our dedication to helping you is best summarized by a quote from Nobel Laureate Albert Schweitzer: “Those who bear the mark of pain are never totally free, for they owe a debt to those who suffer”.
This hope comes from our personal experience restoring our own health, experience working with clients who have chronic illnesses, and clinical training in Functional Medicine & Nutrition, which provides the scientific understanding as to why dis-ease occurs and the steps to take in order to restore healthy functioning of the body.
When you partner with us, we dig beneath the surface to understand what triggered your illness, how to best support your body in the healing process, and create a personalized functional nutrition and lifestyle plan to help you achieve your health goals. You are an active participant in the process as we support you along the way.

In Our Clients Own Words...
“I have seen various practitioners in my recovery journey from ME/CFIDS and within weeks of working with Josette, my chronic myofascial pain was markedly improved and I was not feeling the stiffness and achiness in my muscles that I had become accustomed to. As a result I feel more limber, less burdened by pain, and inclined to move and exercise more, improving my sleep. Josette’s empathy and passion for improving her clients health has had the empowering effect of making me feel seen, heard, and really cared for. She is inquisitive, intuitive, and thorough in her research and practice and has helped me to identify and address my health goals.
Josette is a dedicated and passionate practitioner with a mission to improve the health and healing of her clients. For those living with chronic illness, pain, or disability, be it physical or psychiatric, the journey of seeking health treatment can leave you feeling frustrated and lonely, especially when the origins and prognosis of your symptoms are unknown. Josette has been there. She gets where her clients have been in her own suffering and treatment navigation, eager to share the self-empowering journey of health and recovery she has experienced through functional medicine and nutrition.”

“I have been struggling with gastrointestinal issues for 20 years and chronic Lyme for 8 years. Until Josette, no one had taken the time to thoroughly look at my health history and start to unlock the puzzle.
Just through making the dietary changes she has suggested, my daily pain levels have gone further down than I would have ever imagined. My energy level has improved, I feel like my vitality has tripled and I am no longer having the afternoon energy slump I had gotten so used to!
She is thorough, analytical, and caring. She is always checking in on me to see how I am doing and making sure I am feeling good. During my darkest days, she encouraged me. She prayed for me. She was a light at the end of the tunnel showing me that I, too, could heal myself. I have never worked with anyone so caring!”
Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works
How is a Functional Medicine approach unique?
Functional medicine seeks to uncover and address the root causes of illness. It views the body as a whole system and aims to balance these interconnected pathways in order to restore health. This approach moves beyond treating symptoms with pharmaceuticals and instead focuses on investigating why and how illness occurred, followed by therapeutic interventions to restore balance within your body.
What Happens During the Initial Functional Nutrition Session?
Prior to your initial session, you will be asked to complete and return a detailed health history, including an overview of your current symptoms and recent dietary intake. These forms are completed via an online portal called Practice Better and then reviewed during the initial session. The initial session typically lasts 75 minutes. Together, we dive into your health history, investigate the root causes of your illness, and determine your next steps.
What should I expect during a follow up session?
Follow-up sessions are 45 minutes and occur after your initial session. During this time, we review your personalized dietary and lifestyle plan and create next steps to ensure your success in starting your healing journey. These sessions are also a time to review your progress, address any new challenges, provide you support and education, and review any updates from your primary healthcare provider.
If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give us 24 hours notice. Appointments cancelled within less than 24 hours of your appointment time, you will be billed at 50% of the session fee.
