As a physician, I have decided to take a more comprehensive approach to my medical practice. I enjoy teaching families about the healing properties of foods and the importance of specific lifestyle modifications. Medications have proven to be useful throughout the years but at times there are other more practical modalities that can help in our overall healthcare solutions. My experience in the medical field and interaction with patients over the years have taught me that in many circumstances our healing is closer than we think.

How Can We Help?
As the scope of medicine and treatment modalities expand and people are looking to improve their health naturally, I use peer reviewed science and provide the necessary guidance as we shift the cellular environment in the human body to reestablish homeostasis.
Learn about the health benefits of food and provide a supportive environment to make sustainable choices and changes in your wellness journey.
Providing medical therapy only when medication is warranted for children (0-18 years old). Prescription meds are the “alternative" in our practice.
Whole food plant based supplements added to optimize your body’s vitamin and mineral needs. Equip the microbiome and strengthen the immune system naturally and daily.
Address healthcare questions and other concerns that have been recurrent over time and have not displayed resolve with traditional therapies.
Medical and Nutritional Counseling
Our children are often plagued with the same recurrent common illnesses in early childhood. Our mission is to teach children and their families the importance of natural plant based foods as a regular part of each meal.
Whole plants provided in proper combinations will provide the minerals, vitamins, fibers, antioxidants and proteins needed for appropriate growth and development. The construction of a strong food foundation at a young age will establish a more resilient and robust immune system.
Adults can face health challenges that may also be addressed in a preventative and nonconventional manner. With the aid of proper nutrition we can often reverse or reduce the negative impact of chronic illnesses.
Due to busy lives and often addressing our needs secondarily, we often overlook prevention as a valid means to combat common illnesses. By incorporating whole plant foods into our daily regimen we will optimize our health and infuse our bodies with antioxidants and proteins needed to reestablish and reignite balance.
There are so many choices of foods which can lead to even more confusion on what, when and even how to prepare foods. Our goal is to help families navigate these types of questions while learning which foods can also be utilized to help our bodies heal and maintain health.
We are here to support you in your nutritional journey to wellness. We do advise that you contact your primary care provider for questions concerning labs, imaging studies and chronic medication alterations and adjustments.
How it works?
The assessment is designed to help us understand your current health challenges and the optimal course of action to successfully achieve your goals.

Beginning Greens is being launched to teach the importance of food to our overall health and wellness. Nutritional deficiencies plague our society and have been linked to several chronic and recurrent medical conditions. We will examine your intake and determine the best plan to assist you with your healthcare concerns. The program was initiated by a plant based physician who has centered her practices in medicine around this principle. Our bodies require certain nutrients regularly to function optimally and it is our goal to provide a service that will support the medical concerns and also educate on common medical questions that have plagued our families. Small changes can make a big difference. The key concept is being open for change and committed to your health goals.
We are here to assist you, Join the Team!
I am a plant based physician whose journey into nutrition and health began about 10 years ago. It has been an ongoing learning experience that extends far beyond the plate. I have read, studied and attended conferences that support this lifestyle with evidence based medicine. The paradigm is beginning to shift and people are interested in preventative medicine and overall health maintenance. The road to wellness can be clouded by conflicting and confusing information. My goal is to help families navigate back to health through nutrition.
We will be available for appointments. We do ask that you complete an online questionnaire prior to our assessment to ensure that Beginning Greens can service your healthcare needs.
