Meet Denise

I specialize in working with cancer patients to optimize their health before, during, and after treatment and I do this through FOOD and NUTRITION.

Work With Me

Optimize your health before, during, and after cancer treatment, Improve digestion so you no longer suffer from gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation, or IBS.


As a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist & all around Health Nut, I Eat, Live, and Breathe Nutrition! Which is why it’s my mission in life to help you THRIVE.


Welcome to my world of optimal wellbeing where I’ll teach you how FOOD & NUTRITION aren’t just important, they’re your lifeline to taking back your health! As a leading FUNCTIONAL NUTRITIONIST in the Denver metro area, I am dedicated to getting to the ROOT CAUSE of your health concerns, so you can get back to living your life fully.

MY GOAL is to help you create Optimal Health within because
True Wellness is far more than the absence of disease.

Take cancer for example. Most people think of cancer as a simple tumor that can be cut away, radiated, or attacked with toxic chemotherapy drugs. But cancer is far more than a simple tumor.


It’s the most glaring symptom that something is severely out of balance in your body. Which is why we need to get to the root cause of your imbalances, so we can address the pathways that need to be supported with the proper nutrients so they can function optimally.


FOOD truly is the best medicine you can take or the worst poison you can swallow. I focus on the quality of the food you are putting in your body because FOOD IS INFORMATION that feeds every single cell in your body. Food, found in nature and in it’s natural state, has this extraordinary ability to activate health promoting pathways in your body. But, if we eat the wrong kinds of food, like highly processed, artificially enhanced, and chemically laced ingredients, it can create a terrain that cultivates a state of disease inside you. That’s where I come in, I’ll show you how to feed your body the nutrients it is craving so you can THRIVE.


areas of expertise

cancer nutrition

Your diet affects cancer directly as the nutrients you take in impact the mechanisms by which cancer cells grow and spread. It also affects cancer cells indirectly by changing the surroundings and internal terrain that encourage or discourage the progression of cancer.

cancer prevention

Cancer is a disease of diet and lifestyle. We are bombarded by toxins, stress, and a food supply that has changed dramatically in just the past 50 years. Cancer doesn’t have to be your destiny, you can take control of your health by learning how to mitigate the risk of cancer through a healthy diet, powerful nutrients, reducing your toxic exposure, and supporting proper detoxification.

digestive distress

All health begins in the gut. Eighty percent of your immune system resides in your gastrointestinal tract, so if your gut isn’t healthy, it’s incredibly challenging for the rest of your body to be healthy.

I’ve seen some really great improvements in my bowel health.  I’ve had a daily bowel movement every morning for the past two months; that hasn’t happened in years!  My appetite is even starting to come back which was lacking before.  At this point, I’m feeling really good and am considering getting the ball rolling so I can go back to work.  You are extremely organized and thorough.  Thank you for that!Matt

I’m feeling so much better.  All my stomach issues I was having are so much better than before we started working together.  Even when I eat something I know I shouldn’t eat, I still don’t feel as bad as I used to.  I’m really happy with my weight loss; I haven’t been at this weight since I was in my 20s!Angie

I’ve lost 2 1/2 inches off my stomach and another 4 inches off of my hips!  I’m losing 1 1/2 pounds a week.  I feel so good I even started exercising on top of following the elimination diet.  I feel so much better than before, my stomach isn’t so “gurglely” anymore.   I’m so excited I’m so close to my weight loss goal!Erin

Great news … my labs after my first chemo were very good.  Thank you so much for your help with this.  I did not take the injections of Neupogen (an ecoli derivative) that I did not want to take but my doctor was skeptical that I would be able to keep my blood counts up without the injections.  She agreed to let me try the first course without and it went well.  I am not having any serious side-effects from the chemo.  Thank you, thank you!  For all your support and guidance.Estelle

I have gained so much confidence with my diet by changing my eating habits.  I feel so much less scattered, more confident, more energetic.  I’m stronger and healthier after working with Denise.  My symptoms have decreased in severity greatly!  My chronic constipation is a non-issue now.  My bladder control has been improving which is allowing me to sleep better at night.  Denise is conscientious, organized, informative, knowledgeable, caring, and works in a comfortable environment to spend time in.  I have profited fully from the time I’ve spent with Denise!Nancy

I am really impressed with your client intake form. You asked many of the questions I often want to talk to my doctors about but never feel they have either the time or the interest.  You are the most thorough nutritionist I have ever met.  I do feel fortunate that our paths have crossed and feel that it is no random chance.Mark
