WORK WITH US!

Hi, I'm Nicole!

I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Pracitioner, Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Pracitioner, Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Health and Life Coach. I consider myself a Health Detective.

I began my own health and wellness journey six years ago to find answers to my own health problems. I have been able to completely reverse my debilitating migraines, chronic sinus infections, depression, anxiety and hormone imbalances. 

I became a FDN-P and Holistic Nutritionist so I could help my clients find the root cause(s) of their health issues, address those root causes and THRIVE in life and in health.

No doctor could help me (trust me I went to over 10 different specialists and even went to a Functional Medicine Doctor who tried to push supplements on me without doing any lab work). Becoming an FDN and having access to functional labs literally changed my life, and I have devoted my life and my career to helping people change theirs. 

Everyone has a story, here's mine...

I grew up a very sick child. For as long as I can remember, I suffered from chronic migraines, sinus infections, irregular periods, anxiety and depression. I got every sickness under the sun. I constantly missed school and spent hours and even days in bed suffering from debilitating migraines. 

My parents did absolutely everything in their power to help me. They took me to every specialist under the sun, yet the "answer" was always medication. At one point I was on 7 different medications and felt like a zombie.

2017 was the year that changed my life. That was the year I found out I was living in a house with black mold and the same year I discovered Functional Medicine. 

I started researching and I didn't stop until I found answers. I was already a Certified Health Coach and I immediately enrolled in school to become a Holistic Nutritionist and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. I spent the next few years being my own lab rat. I tested different supplements, therapeutic diets and ran so many different labs and spend hours upon hours studying and researching. Finally I had actual answers to my health issues. 

After years of addressing my health from a functional and holistic approach, I can happily say that I am on ZERO medications and symptom free, living my happiest and healthiest life.

I know firsthand how helpless and defeating it can feel when you know something is wrong, but you can't get answer and nothing seems to be working. I want to offer help, support and guidance so you can live a life free of symptoms.

Hi, I'm Becky!

Several years ago I found myself in and out of the doctor’s office searching for reasons as to why my body was breaking down. After endless blood draws, ultrasounds, scans, biopsies and thousands of dollars spent, I was left with zero answers. The best my doctor could offer were extreme measures that would have resulted in losing my fertility, and I knew that it wasn’t the right choice for me. There had to be a reason all of this was happening and there had to be a better way to resolve it.

I sought help from Nicole and within a matter of months the chronic issues I was having were resolved. My depression had lifted, excess weight was falling off of me, my reproductive system healed, my body was functioning as it should and I felt a sense of hope that had been absent for years. I was fascinated by everything I was learning about my body and knew that I wanted to help others heal and experience the same freedom.

I have a background in coaching and emotional healing, and I am currently working to become a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. I am honored to be working alongside some of the absolute best in this field, and I am eager to help others heal from the physical impacts of chronic stress and trauma so that they can live freely and full of hope!
