About Dr. Laura
Functional medicine is truly my heart’s calling
I’m a firm believer in taking a holistic approach to healthcare. By looking at structural, nutritional, and emotional aspects of health, I strive to find the root cause of a patient’s symptoms and develop individualized therapeutic plans accordingly. Healthcare is evolving - as is the doctor-patient relationship! I think of my interactions with clients as partnerships, as we will be working together to help you function at your peak and reach your health and wellness goals.
I became interested in functional medicine when I was in college. At age 21, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune condition affecting the thyroid gland. I knew I had a family history of autoimmune disease already, and I had seen firsthand that traditional medicine was not always 100% helpful for these conditions. I experimented with a lot of dietary and lifestyle changes and found a plan (based in functional medicine) that worked - and still works - for me, and I have managed my health extremely effectively this way. I incorporate a solid nutrition plan, target supplemental support when needed, and a balanced fitness plan as a priority in my life, and can help you do the same in your own life.
