Discover what's possible when you

transform health from the inside out

I’ve been working through anxiety and IBS for years. Once I did the program I was amazed to see how much better I felt once I knew exactly what foods to focus on in my diet.

For me, getting rid of barley was a major shift in my life! I was able to get through a workday without missing a beat for the first time in a very long time, not to mention feeling calmer and having more control of my social anxiety. Thank you so much! 

OVERCAME LIFE-DISRUPTING IBS AND ANXIETY

Thank you to Dr. Kate. It has been an AMAZING,  life changing experience working with her.

Although I thought I was eating healthy, I still felt awful. After starting Digestion By Design, I was able to identify that just because a food is ‘good for you’ it was in fact not good for me.

After just 1 month of the program I had no more bloating, next to no GI symptoms and I actually lost 10 lbs. I was able to exercise again and feel like myself again. I would highly recommend that everyone should do this, consult with Dr. Kate and learn how she can help you! I only wish I did this sooner. 

BEAT THE BELLY BLOAT AND FINALLY MOVED THE SCALE

This was the guidance I needed to help get my life back. I was desparate and slipping into depression. I gained so much weight, felt terrible and spent way too much time in the bathroom. 

IBS, Gastroparesis, Diverticulitis, GERD, hernia and fatigue were taking over my life. 

I saw all the specialists but was only ever given prescriptions that were expensive and didn’t work. 

Once I decided I needed to do something different, it was like the universe aligned.  I admit that it was a little overwhelming getting my results back, but working on my mindset and having this unlimited support along the way was invaluable! 

I was able to lose weight, stop experiencing daily IBS-D, now it only happens when I get really stressed. I’ve found my love of the kitchen and cooking again. For anyone suffering gut issies, I encourage them to try this process and regain your LIFE!

FOUGHT THE FATIGUE, IBS, REFLUX AND WON

MS

My relationship with my husband was suffering because I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I had no desire to be intimate and felt like I was destined for a life of baggy clothes to hide my non-pregnant pregnant looking belly. 

Seeing my GI doc and primary care only gave me meds and generic lists of foods to stay away from and I never even had time to ask questions. 

I used to be exhausted and it was a chore to get through dinner and getting my kids to bed. I often was falling asleep in bed with them and couldn’t keep up with everything else I needed to do. 

Once I got my results and changed my foods, OH MY GOSH! I was like a new person. Within 8 days I was feeling amazing! Energized, bloating was way down, that I no longer looked pregnant and started wearing less loose tops. 

If you’re been frustrated with how you’re feeling, seriously get started with Dr. Kate! It’s totally worth it to have your health back and stop wasting money on trying vitamins, supplements that didn’t seem to help. 

REIGNITED RELATIONSHIPS AND CONFIDENCE

CA

I think I’m a pretty healthy person, but I couldn’t figure out what was causing my skin rash, UNPREDICTABLE diarrhea, and nasal congestion.

I was sick of the steroid creams that didn’t seem to be working that well and the unxpected, urgent  trips to the bathroom.

When I found out that food could be a cause, I was intrigued. I wish I did this sooner.

Making a few changes to the foods that I am eating and my skin is SO much better, I’m not congested and I’m no longer running to the bathroom! Thank you. I’m relieved to know what foods were aggravating me. No more steriod creams or stress! 

DEFEATED DIARRHEA, ECZEMA, CONGESTION

My Story

After feeling defeated by my own life-disrupting digestive health struggles and not wanting to be defined by them, I knew there had to be more than prescriptions and unproductive appointments. 

My labs always looked “normal” but I wasn’t feeling normal. I wasn’t going to settle. 

When I added 2 hours onto a 4 hour road trip due to my own pain and unpredictable digestive distress, I knew I had to do something more to figure this out. 

Conventional medicine just wasn’t working for me. Combining appointments, ultrasounds, CT, labs and prescriptions didn’t give me any meaningful solutions. I knew there had to be more than what I learned in school. The “try this and see” approach didn’t make sense to me. 

I COULDN’T STAND TO HEAR “I DON’T KNOW” “SEE HOW IT GOES” one more time from the many specialists that I saw for:

Acne, IBS, Migraines, fatigue, reflux and heartburn. 

Once I took my health into my own hands, I found my solution and I haven’t looked back. I decided to start my own practice helping women and supporting them in the way I never was. 

My Values & Beliefs

FOOD IS ONLY 20% OF THE SOLUTION FOR BETTER HEALTH

Have you ever set a resolution or goal for better health only to discover that after a few days or weeks you were right back to your old patterns?

Mindset is critical for making lasting lifestyle changes for better health and wellness. And, it’s what most providers miss. Handing someone a list of foods to eat without addressing mindset is counterproductive. 

I developed Digestion By Design using The Root Method focusing on both food and mindset to provide a holistic approach to women’s wellness. 

NUTRITION ISN'T ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL

You’re not a cookie cutter. What works for you doesn’t mean it’ll work for your best friend. I don’t believe in diets. I believe in lifestyle change. 

I believe in a personalized approach and working from the inside out by discovering what impact food is having on your body.

Many chronic health conditions are linked to inflammation. Focusing on reducing inflammation caused by food has significant impacts on our overall health. 

THE PERFECT TIME FOR CHANGE IS TODAY

My approach to health is built on a foundation of compassion, support and service for what’s possible with an integrative approach. I belive in helping women who are motivated and commited to help themselves. 

I’m here to guide and support you with a major shift in your lifestyle, one that you can maintain for the long term. 

I’m here to help you reach your highest level of wellness and tap into the strength within you to make these lifestyle changes with ease and confidence. I believe in you. 

My Approach

I developed The Root Method to help women nourish, revive and thrive. 

You’re not what you eat; you are what you digest and absorb. When you reduce inflammation you can improve your digestive function which impacts the whole body from head to toe. 

I focus on gut health/ digestive health because our digestion impacts our brain, skin, hormones and so much more. It’s like the hub of a wheel connecting the spokes. 

When you’re able to nourish your body, that’s when you can begin to revive your life. Revive your relationships with yourself, food, family, partner. Revive your confidence that you’re improving your health to be present for those important people in your life. 

When you revive your relationships because you’ve nourished your body, that’s when you can THRIVE.
