Welcome to Confluence
Hello! I'm so glad you found your way here.
While practicing family and emergency medicine as a PA for the last 6 years I came to realize something heartbreaking–we live in a time of unprecedented burnout and preventable sickness. And many of us don't know where to turn for high quality health information or the tools to overcome the countless barriers to wellness in our busy, modern lives.
I created Confluence to help my clients, colleagues, and community do something truly revolutionary–break through the barriers to feeling well and thriving. As health editor Pilar Gerasimo writes, “We are living in a world that makes it a whole lot easier to be sick, overweight and depressed than to be healthy, happy and resilient."
In our unhealthy world, it’s a revolutionary act to invest in your wellness and live healthfully. So it's no wonder it can feel like a constant struggle. But you don’t have to do it alone. Having a roadmap and a guide make the journey to vibrant health smoother and much more direct.
Whether you are experiencing fatigue, stress, headaches, digestive problems, hormonal concerns, allergies, an autoimmune disorder, infertility, weight problems, or a simple desire to create more optimal wellness in your life, I'd love to help you get back in the driver’s seat. So you are creating the well-being you need to do and be all the other important things in your life.
The Confluence approach to health and healing is founded in the philosophies of evidence-based Functional Medicine. It focuses on the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. It integrates the most current genetic, nutritional, and biochemical research with powerful tools for behavior change and a person-centered philosophy (rather than focusing on diseases!). Think of me as a your personal medical educator and wellness guide, providing you the tools to do more than prevent or recover from disease–to feel deeply well.
I hope you’ll join me in the revolutionary act of investing in YOU.
