Medicine, Meals, Mindset, and Movement

When you have IBD, every instinct tells you to restrict...  

You restrict your choices to avoid triggering symptoms, unintentionally creating a life of continual limitations and stop signs.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

After working with thousands of IBD patients, I wanted to solve IBD from the inside out in ways not possible as a medical doctor. I had a vision to support IBD patients in extremely personalized ways to replace feelings of restriction and isolation. To change the narrative of information overload and the feeling of being alone. 

So I started Unlocking IBD. 

This is the only program designed to liberate IBD patients in the 4 M’s of IBD: Medical, Meals, Mindset, and Movement.

- Medical clarity that is science-validated to replace Dr. Google
- Meals you can enjoy without triggering a flare up
- Movement and physical practices that fit your lifestyle
- Mindset activities that align with your personality

This is a very personalized ongoing journey we will go through together. We start with an in-depth assessment of your 4 M’s so I can see what is and isn’t working for you. Then, we collaborate to elevate at least 20 new micro-habits starting with the easiest and highest impact items first to transform your relationship with IBD and unlock and live your best life.

Become the CEO of your health. Receive personalized support and access to evidence based insights during your medical journey. 

What you can expect:

Support for three different food tracks: Periods of flare; Improving but not yet in Remission; & Remission. We will help you identify foods you enjoy without feeling restricted or fearful of triggering symptoms.



Tailored and customized routines designed to help you unlock the benefits of exercises such as mindful breathing, rejuvenating yoga, and effective core strengthening exercises.


Rewrite your stories to nurture "Hero Moments" that are steps toward improved habit formation so they last a lifetime. Overcome mindset barriers and get clarity on your WHY. 



I have Crohn's and was diagnosed about 2 years ago and at the time, I was in remission, or that's what my doctors told me. I still had symptoms and was stressed with thoughts of worry, guilt, and overwhelm. On top of that, I didn’t really exercise much. 

With Unlocking IBD, I learned how ultra-processed foods were impacting my health and learned delicious recipes that were easy to make. I was able to leverage the app to nurture thoughts of gratitude and appreciation which helped me feel less crazy & anxious Unlocking IBD was with me every step of the way. And get this, I even started incorporating yoga and breath-work into my life and I now feel healthier and more confident that I am on a path to wellness.

An ultra-personalized ongoing journey to liberate the 4 M’s of IBD. Together, we will collaborate on small, but incredibly powerful Medical, Meals, Mindset, and Movement choices developed specifically for you.

I have ulcerative colitis and was diagnosed 6 months ago and immediately went online to research everything I could about my diagnosis. Instead of clarity, I was left feeling confused, overwhelmed and more anxious than ever from all the conflicting opinions, anecdotal stories, and approaches from all the “experts” with their unique opinions. With Unlocking IBD, I was finally able to feel that someone had my back. I got answers specifically applicable to my unique situation quickly and was able to learn about easy new habits to optimize my health. I went from avoiding fiber to learning all about its health benefits, how to sneak it into my meals, and cook fiber to minimize gas!

"So happy I did this! "

It took me going to 4 years of undergrad, 4 years of medical school and 6 years of medical training to become a Gastroenterologist. But it has taken me becoming a mom, wife, life experiences, and seeing thousands of patients for me to realize that the typical medical practice was falling short in treating the whole patient - especially when it came to inflammatory bowel disease. 

I am changing the narrative of bland, basic IBD care and elevating the experience. 

The good news is, I don’t think you need to get your MD to  learn to weed through the noise of false social media health marketing, and feel confident and empowered to become the CEO of your health. 

I want to share what I know because it matters. You matter.

 I want to show you what is possible.

So here's the thing...

What           doctor does

Diagnoses you. Performs lab tests, procedures, and submits referrals to other specialists 

Pick up where your doctor leaves off. Answer the unanswered questions, THE ones you forgot to ask, or didn't know you had

Monitors your response to treatment & makes medication adjustments with periodic clinic visits

If you are lucky, your physician will provide you with resources regarding food choices, mindset or lifestyle changes

What        do



It's probably
for you if...

curated health coaching, Incorporating medical knowledge, Meals, Mindset, and Movement as part of your treatment plan

Help you recognize that after your diagnosis, you may be inclined to shut down: limiting food intake, exercise, social interaction, goals, etc. We help you open life up!

Can I cancel my membership?

Yes, you may cancel anytime. Remember, this is a program where everything you learn builds upon itself and to get the most out of the platform, we recommend you stick with it for at least a year.
