Hello and welcome! We are so happy you that you exploring all avenues to healing and that you found our website. We share a philosophy about holistic healthcare and our inspiration for this work was catalyzed by our own struggles with long-term, complex chronic illness.   

Our top priority is to foster a supportive and collaborative relationship with you.  From here, we help you to unravel your health challenges by correctly identifying and addressing all root causes, not simply managing symptoms.

We fully understand that restoring one’s health and reclaiming one’s life from the grips of complex health challenges can be an overwhelming undertaking.  Because of this, we remove the guesswork, investigate the core causes of your challenges, and guide and support you through a step-by-step process. 

We use only the most relevant, non-invasive and state-of-the-art functional and bio-energetic assessments, a wide array of healing modalities, and we provide comprehensive education on how to get well and stay well. While addressing bio-chemical imbalances is critical, we understand that a truly effective dis-ease reversal program must go way beyond this. 

Because of this, we help you to identify and address all factors (body, mind, and spirit) that converged to create the “perfect storm” that lead to your current health challenges. 

Additionally, our functional health practice is 100% online so if you choose to work with us, you will do so from the comfort of your own home via virtual video conferencing.

Working virtually also enables us to work with clients in any location in the world.  


We Specialize in Working With Those That:

  • are desperate for change and want to address root causes of ongoing health issues; particularly chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and digestive conditions.
  • are fed up with going from doctor to doctor, bandaid approaches, and taking toxic drugs to manage symptoms.
  • are motivated to heal, willing to invest in themselves, and reading to become empowered.
  • are interested in working in close partnership with functional health practitioners who can provide mentorship, guidance, and a step-by-step plan that takes the guesswork out of the equation.

Our Philosophy & Team Work Approach

While addressing bio-chemical imbalances is critical, we understand that a truly effective dis-ease reversal program must go way beyond this.  Because of this, we help you to identify and address all factors (body, mind, and spirit) that converged to create the “perfect storm” that lead to your current health challenges.

Considering our role as health detectives we begin with a comprehensive Discovery Session where we review all relevant health-related records, your full life history, and all current lifestyle patterns.  From here, we combine the bio-chemistry of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® and the physics of NES Bio-Energetics with the art and psychology of Wellness, Lifestyle, Neurosculpting®, and Mind-Body Coaching to reveal healing opportunities and ultimately open the pathways to health.  Additionally, we provide comprehensive, step-by-step education on how to get well and stay well. 

Additionally, we work as a team when it comes to client cases.  If you become a client of Empowered To Heal, you will have consults with each of us at different times. On occasion, you may even have both of us in the same consult.   This way, clients get to benefit from both of our unique skill sets and personalities.   


There are no “magic bullet answers” out there. We know! We both searched the world high and low for them; and invested big bucks in several of them. Restoring one’s health requires correctly identifying all health blocking factors and removing the interference so the body can do the rest. This is what we did for ourselves and we will help you to do the same.
