Alyssa is a Family Nurse Practitioner with a lifelong passion for health and wellness. She is a Certified Practitioner through The Institute for Functional Medicine and has also completed training through The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine with the desire to learn and apply this knowledge to her practice. She is passionate about Functional Medicine, because the approach is to search for the root cause of symptoms and promote health through lifestyle and individualized care. While prescriptions may be warranted in many instances, rarely does it need to be the first line option and may just be a temporary fix.
It's important to her that her patients feel heard and validated. "I know everybody's health journey is unique and I want you to know I will treat you as an individual. Not one treatment plan is identical to the other. We will work together to create the plan to guide you back to balanced health. Nobody knows you or your body like you do, so what you have to say is the most important thing brought into the appointment. My goal is to listen, hear you, and apply my education and experience to helping you recover your health."
