It's not in your head

I hear you


Navigating health issues can be daunting and scary. When my son was seven, he developed a tic disorder known as PANDAS. At the time, I was overwhelmed and didn’t know where to turn. Fortunately, I was turned onto functional medicine and (through it) was able to successfully help his body regain heath. 

After my son’s experience, I wanted to be able to help others who were seeking answers to unexplained health concerns. I enrolled at the University of Bridgeport so I could learn how to use diet, lifestyle, and nutrition therapeutically for disease management and prevention. 

I am board certified and licensed with an extensive background in functional medicine.

The functional medicine way

a different approach

Functional medicine is a “personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease” (IFM, 2022).  It’s a science- based approach used to identify, understand, and resolve the cause of chronic health concerns by eliminating what’s causing the malfunction and adding what the body needs to thrive.

Functional medicine is a multidimensional approach to health that focuses on the biochemical individuality of the person. It incorporates the understanding of improving systemic imbalance by changing diet and lifestyle factors for optimal health.

Functional medicine evaluates all the body’s systems to address the underlying cause of dysfunctional heath. Identifying what is out of balance within the body.

Client Story

"I came to Danielle with bowel issues, and through testing she discovered I had significant inflammation throughout my body. She guided me with diet and supplements alone and my bowel issue is gone. As a positive side effect, I have more energy and feel better throughout the day. I can’t thank her enough for the help. I am grateful to have found her." Tom
