Because she has formal training in western allopathic and functional medicine she is comfortable treating with traditional western medicine prescription medications as a bridge, when necessary, as root causes are uncovered through the functional medicine approach.

Kristen did her Master’s research on Compulsive Overeating and is comfortable and sensitive to those working to improve their relationship with food. Kristen doesn’t even have a scale in her office. She believes in, and has seen the benefit to her patients, utilizing the team approach to wellness. Kristen continues to place great emphasis and collaborate with her patient’s entire health care team which most importantly involves the patient as part of that team.

Her treatment approach includes involving and educating the patient (and family) at every step of the process from explaining body processes to lab results to what to expect. She believes that knowledge is power. New patient visit is 90 minutes. Follow up visits are 30 minutes.
