Nourish health consultation

Joya Van Der Laan, MSN, FNP-BC

I am a mom, a wife, a nurse practitioner, and have a passion for helping people get well and stay well.

As a mom, wife, and health care professional, I have witnessed the devastation of chronic disease in both my personal and professional life. I love helping others achieve optimal wellness and relief from chronic disease.

My Background

I am a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a Masters in Nursing from North Park University in Chicago. My experience practicing in a highly regarded and innovative pain management and functional medicine practice sharpened my skills and expanded my knowledge in both traditional and functional medicine.

Continuing Education

Always eager to learn, I have completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in both traditional and functional medicine. I most recently completed the Institute for Functional Medicine’s intensive Advanced Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP) training, as well as their Advanced Clinical Training in Pediatrics.

My goal with this time is to gather some initial information about you and your goals, and for you to ask me questions about my skills and medical approach. I also find this a valuable tool to determine if my services and expertise are aligned with the health concerns you have. No diagnosis or medical advice may be given during this visit.


    When my health went haywire last year with autoimmune disease and hormone imbalance, Joya got me back on track and feeling better. Functional medicine looks at the body as a system that needs to work well as a whole – much more effective for overall health than what my piecemeal specialists are pushing! Joya is thorough, caring and refreshingly realistic.”
