Functional Nutrition Therapy Practitioner

What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition aims to use food as medicine and to identify problem areas for anyone looking to improve their health or resolve diagnosed or mysterious conditions. Taking a whole body approach and using extensive interview skills, Nicole will get to know your background, health history, current concerns, lifestyle, and family health history among other factors to help you achieve optimal health. With an education based in clinical scientific research, bioscience, blood chemistry analysis and clinical nutrition, we can work together to find answers and approaches that work for your lifestyle. We can also use various testing tools to get a focused picture of your body's needs. Sometimes that means looking at potential changes, but always through a realistic lens so that you can find a balance and take things at your own pace.
We will explore nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle and environmental factors and talk about supplementation and herbal remedies if necessary. Sometimes the answers are simple and sometimes they are more complex, and I find joy in solving problems in conjunction with you. If something is out of my scope of practice or educational background, I will always refer to the appropriate type of practitioner and/or work with your current medical team so that everyone is on the same page.

Work With Me
I would love to talk with you and find out what your concerns are and answer your questions about working together in the nutrition field. I offer free phone consultations up to 30 minutes to see if we are a good fit and to talk about various plans and programs based on your needs. All nutrition appointments are done through telehealth so you can be in the comfort of your home and we can meet for appointments on video and follow up in emails. I will share research and handouts pertaining to your particular needs.
I love food. This is not about deprivation. This is about learning and figuring out why you don't feel your best. Living happy and healthy for as long as possible is the goal.
If you are just interested in upgrading your supplement regimen to high quality brands, I offer a 15% discount once you are set up in my system and we can talk about what you take and why. Or I can be your nutrition guide for a longer term collaboration.
I believe that education is power and having a teammate to guide, listen and dig deep can help to find unsolved problem areas. I want to help you reach your goals. What's important to you is important to me.

Jen C, Washington
I recently reached out to Nicole to see if she could help me with some ongoing issues I have been experiencing. After becoming completely disenfranchised with traditional western medicine, I was looking for alternative answers for my extreme fatigue and digestive issues. I had doctor after doctor shrug their shoulders upon hearing my symptoms. I felt their attempts at using expensive out of pocket testing for anything was half hearted and they gave me no useful information on why I could be feeling this way.
Nicole spent a considerable amount of time listening to me and gathering information to dig deeper. Through her functional blood work analysis training and the fact that I am a pescatarian, she pointed out the possibility of iron deficiency, the need for higher protein intake, identifying food sensitivities and found a naturopath to refer me too when something was out of her scope. She even made a beautiful handout that I can keep on my refrigerator with lists of high iron and protein vegetarian foods. She was also sensitive to my concerns about brain health as I have a history of Parkinson's and Alzheimers in my family. She helped me find the resources I needed to feel better and set myself up for success in feeding my body in a way that would promote energy and wellness. I am eternally grateful for her help and will definitely go back for anything else that might come along.
