About Us

Welcome to Thrive, where essential primary care meets transformative nutrition therapy.

Experienced Practitioners

Evidence-Based Care

Root-Cause Approach

Your place to Thrive.

Thrive is a nutrition-centric primary care and functional medicine practice for those who want to feel well, live well, and be well. While we offer all the services you might see at a conventional medicine practice (and more), your experience at Thrive will feel a little different. That’s because here, we believe primary care and complementary care work best together. Here, compassionate, personalized care is the standard by our healthcare professionals, not the exception. Here, we ensure our care is not only effective but affordable and accessible, too.

You belong here.

Ineffective, disjointed care stops here.

While our functional medicine practitioners and care team have decades of experience helping people heal from the root, we aren’t just healthcare providers. We’re patients, too. And like you, we’ve been disappointed by a broken system and lack of quality care.

While no one deserves to be brushed off or overlooked through conventional medicine practices, these experiences did inspire and motivate us to find a better way to heal—and now we’re passionate about helping you do the same.

As your care team, we promise to…

See you as a whole person. You are not just a fractured set of organs or a set of symptoms and health issues to fix, but a whole individual that deserves intentional support for optimal health.

Guide you in all aspects of well-being, not just manage your main symptoms. This includes your sleep, stress levels, daily movement, toxin exposure, social support, and spirituality.

Seek out the root causes of your health issues and chronic disease so you can achieve lasting freedom from chronic fatigue, pain, weight gain, gut health issues, elevated blood sugar levels, and more.

Stay on top of the latest science so that we can bring you the best, most effective, and easiest-to-implement functional medicine plans to reach your goals.

Create a plan that’s made for you. We’ll make sure your plan is achievable (and enjoyable!) based on your real-life circumstances.

Support you with thoughtful responses to your questions, ongoing accountability, nutrition education, motivation, and community.

Hear From Our Thriving Patients

“I am currently down 30 pounds and feel a lot healthier. Before, I was suffering with constant bloating, heartburn, and anxiety, but they are all virtually non-existent now. I can’t wait to keep going.“

Derek Weight loss struggles

“I have to say that this has been a very empowering experience for me thus far. I had no idea just how poorly my confidence and self-worth has been tied to the gut issues I’ve been dealing with. Thank you for working with me to resolve this. I’ve got a new lease on life now that I know I have control over these issues. I also have had fun researching Candida and learning about nutrition.“

Natalie Digestive Problems

“I LOVE working with Thrive. My care team is so encouraging, friendly, knowledgeable, and has really helped me figure out what is going on with ME and MY body. I’m getting results with my blood sugar and weight quickly, so that’s a surprise bonus for me!
