I understand the struggle…
Because I’ve been where you are or, at least, some version of it. Shortly after writing a book, starting a family, and launching a business, I was sidelined by a flood of what felt like unrelated symptoms:
❌ Constant fatigue
❌ Brain fog
❌ Heart palpitations
❌ Breakthrough period bleeds
In just six months, I went from feeling vibrant and healthy to overwhelmed, exhausted, and fearful that something was really wrong.
Like you, I went to my primary doctor and to specialists in hopes of getting answers. They ran tests, gave me general advice, and offered medications, but no one could explain what was causing my symptoms and how they all related.
So, I took my health into my own hands.
I went on a search to find out what was really going on. I read tons of research papers, signed up for courses, and sought advice from holistic practitioners.
Once I identified my specific imbalances, I adjusted my diet, added targeted supplements, and prioritized rest and spiritual health.
I felt dramatically better in just a few months. One year later, I felt like myself again – I was rested, resilient, and able to fully participate in life with my family! And, I had gained a deeper respect for my body and a renewed commitment to nurture my whole health in the ways it needed.
You can feel great again too!
No matter what your current health concerns, you deserve to enjoy a healthy, symptom-free life.
I know how difficult life can be when you’re constantly being knocked down by symptoms…I also know how transformative it is when you find the path back to health.
You don’t have to settle for being told you’re “fine,” that you should just “deal with it,” or that “it’s all in your head.”
YOU DESERVE BETTER.
I promise to…
✔️ Listen to you
✔️ Look deeper to find the root cause of your symptoms
✔️ Tailor a realistic plan just for you that really works
✔️ Support, guide, and encourage you all along the way!

“I am so happy we found Dena! We reached out to her when our 3 year old daughter was having behavioral and GI issues. Since being in this journey with Dena, we have had huge gains with our daughter. I highly recommend her!”
“Dena is an encouraging, patient, and helpful nutritionist. Her recommendations have changed my lifestyle by focusing my priorities, and knowing better what my body needs to feel its best.”
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition from Stephen F. Austin State University and a Master’s in Nutrition from Texas Woman’s University, Medical Center in Houston.
I worked at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as a registered dietitian for the first six years of my career. Although I offered mostly conventional nutritional advice, my belief in a more holistic approach began to emerge during my time there as a way to provide patients with the most comprehensive and effective care.
I now combine my formal nutrition background with all I’ve learned about holistic health and functional medicine from countless webinars and conferences, multiple formal functional medicine training programs , and constantly reading the latest research for myself. Most of all, I’ve learned from the hundreds of clients over the years. The breadth and depth of knowledge I’ve gained over the years allows me to help clients just like you understand their bodies and finally get the results they deserve.
