- Lao Tsu
At Origins Collaborative Care, we specialize in treating the underlying root causes of illness and restoring your body’s innate capacity to heal.
A diagnosis is a description that classifies a certain constellation of symptoms and gives it a name. More and more often, however, people find themselves with a grouping of symptoms that don’t seem to fit any recognizable pattern… no one can seem to offer them a diagnosis. But, that doesn't make it any less real for the person who’s suffering without answers.
On the other end of the spectrum, there’s a growing number of people with a long list of diagnoses, but nothing that seems to tie it all together and no clear path for getting well.
Whether you have a multitude of diagnoses - or none at all - the entrance on the path to healing is always the same.
Our approach centers on identifying and removing your current obstacles to healing combined with evidence-based approaches for harnessing the power of your own built-in mechanisms for healing and repair - until a natural state of balance is restored.
A Decision to Work with Origins Collaborative Care is an Investment in Your Health
Our commitment to healing is why Origins Collaborative Care offers Memberships rather than fee-for-service appointments. Our Membership model is realistic, robust, comprehensive, pioneering, scientifically validated, adaptable, and highly personalized. Importantly, Memberships allow you and your body the time and support it needs to recover.
Healing Can Only Happen When We Feel Safe and Cared For
This is a reality of our biology. Safety, love, connection and belonging are evolutionary biological imperatives. We need them to survive. A core part of our approach is making sure you feel held, cared for, seen, validated, and understood. Research shows that our capacity for physical healing is greatly expanded when we experience safe and loving connection. Our treatment model includes education and support for family and loved ones as well as opportunities for community and belonging.

In her many years of clinical experience as a Functional Medicine provider, often treating the “sickest of the sick,” Jessica (with the help of Micaela) has come to an important discovery: An extraordinary number of her chronic illness patients have at least one and very often both of these two underlying, previously undiagnosed conditions: Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) and Nervous System Dysregulation.
We invite you to take a peek at the following links to see if either, or both, of these common, underlying root-cause conditions might hold the key to finally unlocking your good health, too!
No matter what you’re suffering with - we want you to know that there’s hope within our approach.
