Nutrition Therapy for Digestive Healing
Do you experience abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas/bloating, more?
Have you been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
Low FODMAP? Gluten free? Paleo? AIP?
Are you tired of trying to figure out what to eat to help YOUR symptoms?
Congratulations! Your Journey to Digestive Wellness Starts Here.....
One-on-one functional nutrition therapy acknowledges that you are an individual that has unique needs and instead of providing general dietary suggestions based upon your diagnosis or trying to apply a one size fits all protocol, I am passionate about taking the time to get to know you, your story and creating a personalized approach that meets your goals.
The average client journey takes 3 to 6 months but can be longer depending upon your specific needs being addressed.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
- Rachael, Colorado
I am walking away with a confidence and understanding of not only what causes my symptoms but how much of my trigger foods I can or cannot handle. I feel SO MUCH BETTER!!!
- Tom, Colorado
I tried what I thought was everything to relieve my IBS symptoms (removed gluten, dairy, FODMAPs, probiotics etc.) with no relief. I was skeptical at first that I could be helped but working with Marissa and her personalized approach has changed my life!
- Jen, Colorado
I am no longer guessing about how to feel better, I have control over my health and am free of constant bathroom awareness and worry of food roulette!
Marissa is so knowledgeable, cheerful and positive. Working with her has been amazing; I highly recommend her!
What Makes Me Different?
YOU'RE NOT JUST ANOTHER PATIENT.
When you work with me, you will feel heard. You will never hear me say "it's all in your head" or "there is nothing more we can do". I truly care about your success and helping you get well. I only work with a certain number of clients each month because it's important that my clients get the attention they deserve, have their questions answered and don't feel rushed like most doctor's offices.
YOU'RE NOT CHARGED BY THE HOUR OR VISIT
Most health practitioners charge per session and bill you based on the amount of time you’ve spent with them. When you work with me, time is not an issue. With only one program fee, sessions are tailored to meet your needs which includes not only how often we meet but length of each session as well. This structure enhances your success.
YOUR PROGRAM IS 100% PERSONALIZED TO YOU
While you may have the same diagnosis and even the same symptoms as someone else, your journey is 100% unique to you, so why would you want some generalized, cookie cutter "solution"? Healing digestive issues is an individualized process. The recommendations I provide are tailored specifically to you which is the only way to get results.
YOU'LL SAVE TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY
No more wasted time going from practitioner to practitioner, researching and trying various elimination diets or supplements without much success. No more lost time due to lack of productivity, stomach pain, or trips to the bathroom. No more wasting your money on medications, supplements, or procedures that just don’t work. If you keep going at it on your own, you'll keep experiencing the circle of trial and error and no true success. If what you have been trying isn't getting you results, it's time for a change and to work with someone who can help you.
YOU'RE GETTING A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT TESTING INCLUDED
The way that I work is very different from traditional medicine or nutrition practices. Once we have had an initial visit and I have had a chance to review your health history, I create a program for you that includes cutting-edge functional medicine tests. These tests will provide a comprehensive look at what is going on so that there is no more shooting in the dark and guessing (which also means more time and money savings!). I thoroughly explain your test results so that you understand the complexities of your digestive issues and you'll feel clear on the nutrition and lifestyle protocol that's recommended specifically for you.
YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO SUCCEED BECAUSE YOU WILL BE FOLLOWING A TRIED AND TRUE SYSTEMATIC APPROACH WITH UNLIMITED SUPPORT
Without a tried and true step-by-step process, you could be focusing on the wrong thing at the wrong time or miss an important step when you do it all on your own. Ultimately you’ll waste time and money and barely get any results. Knowing what to prioritize is crucial to prevent overwhelm while getting you results.
My clients see on average a 50-75% improvement in their symptoms within the first two weeks of working together (with strict adherence to the recommended protocol) and ongoing, continued improvement over time. People fall off track when they don’t have enough support or accountability. That’s why you can reach me any time you need during the time that we are working together. It's important to me that your questions are answered and that you never feel alone on your healing journey. You will never feel stuck because I’m just a message away!
