Meet Alex Golden

Hi I’m Alex. I’m known for my integrative MD approach to health through both functional and conventional medicine and for teaching women the tools they need to be their own health advocates. 

I’ve had chronic pelvic pain since I was 18 years old.  Pain, like any other illness, is a product of many systems in the body breaking.  For me, it was the culmination of a family history stacked with autoimmune diseases, a poor diet, years of physically abusing my body from ballet, and major gut motility problems.  

After years of bouncing between dismissive doctors and struggling with body image and self-prescribed treatments, it finally dawned on me that I wanted to turn my personal problems into a personal strength…and I decided to become the kind of doctor I myself would want to find as a patient.

ALEX DOES NOT CURRENTLY HAVE OPENING FOR 1-ON-1 but we will update you when she does!

Meet Megan Blacksmith

Hi I am Megan! I ams a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® practitioner and also Certified Holistic Health Coach. I love to dig into topics such as hormones, detoxification, nutrient deficiency and gut health.

I like to consider myself a health detective and functional lab work is the key component in her detective kit. Instead of chasing symptoms, we search for the root cause. My own struggle with low energy, recurring infections, adrenal dysfunction and heavy metals (all while trying to balance family life with a corporate job) opened my eyes to a journey that does not require willpower and deprivation. Iwas able to restore HPA-axis dysfunction (adrenal fatigue) naturally and now have the energy to do what I am really passionate about. I have two wonderful little girls: Lily, who is 6, and Paige, who is 1. They keep me busy but are my greatest motivation to create a healthier world.

I currently have a full 1-on-1 practice until October 2017, but jump on the list to be notified if anything changes or for openings in October.


Meet Laura Atterbury

Hi, I’m Laura Atterbury of Imperfectly Whole Life! I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) practitioner who is just as excited as Alex and Megan about functional lab work.

My passion is supporting and educating women through their health struggles so they can have the life they are intended to have. I have “been there and done that” with being told nothing was wrong with me by doctors, but I kept digging and asking questions.

I found my answers and want other women to be empowered to find their answers, too! 

Meet Elissa Cohen


Hi, I’m Elissa Cohen! I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) Practioner, and Certified Holistic Health Coach.

But more importantly, I have struggled with my own health and hormonal balance issues, which led me down the path of helping women who struggle with hormonal imbalance, fatigue, and other health concerns.

I love being able to see women regain their health and vitality so they can thrive and create a life they love!

Meet Kristin Thomas


Hi, I’m Kristin Thomas, founder of Thrive by Food! I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practicioner (FDN-P) and certified Holistic Health Coach (HHC) specializing in digestive health.

My journey to becoming a health coach was inspired from my own 10-year health journey. By making strategic diet and lifestyle changes, I went from an ER room facing surgery to full remission from ulcerative colitis in just 6 months, after a wild decade-long battle with the disease.

Trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, I work with clients who have complex digestive and immune issues and are looking for a natural and practical way out. 

I believe that everyone is capable of recovering from whatever they have, and with the right approach and support, they can absolutely make it happen.

I can’t wait to work with you so that you can thrive again!
