Medical Providers

Rita Rutland, APRN, Medical Director | Founder

I'm a Family Nurse practitioner. I primarily specialize in adult medicine. My focus is health promotion rather than disease management. Lifestyle modification rather than medications. My background is alternative health and sports medicine. I grew up in Japan immersed in holistic medicine and was a personal trainer before transitioning into a nursing career. I worked over 15 years as a nurse before becoming a Nurse Practitioner. I provide fee for service/concierge medicine tailored to the needs of my patients; phone consults, telemedicine, and in office appointments. I look forward to working with you on your health goals.

Emily Dettenmaier, APRN

I'm a nurse practitioner with an extensive work history of pediatric cardiology. I'm passionate about long term solutions to the health problems my patients face.

Mercedes Mortensen, APRN

I am a Nurse Practitioner who specializes in Adult-Gerontology Primary Care. I have worked as a Registered Nurse for the past 20 years, with experience in Oncology, Orthopedics, and Neuro/Trauma Intensive Care. My first experience with Restorative Health was finishing my clinic hours here for my NP program. I love the passion and caring nature of everyone in the office, and it felt like a natural fit for me. I was lucky enough to be able to hire on after NP school so that I could continue to provide informative, caring, and passionate care to my patients tailored to their individual needs. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and concerts, as well as staying up to date with the many changes in the healthcare industry.

Katrina Holmberg, Registered Nurse

I work to help patients discover whole body health by uncovering intersystem connections and restoring their balance. My passion is to combine my love of learning with my empathy for all people. I strive to help patients realize their fullest potential utilizing lifestyle and nutritional changes.  I obtained a B.S. in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. The brain continues to captivate my interest, especially in how we can utilize modalities such as meditation, biofeedback, and neurofeedback to improve function in the rest of the body. 

Brittany Morrill, Lead Medical Assistant

I am the lead medical assistant here at the clinic. I work hard to provide a safe space, both physical and mental to inspire the healing process. It's quite the phenomenon to see the conversations and care that takes place here, changing the course of so many lives. I aspire to continue my education both in experience and schooling to be a medical provider to continue on this work. I am also probably the funniest person you'll meet so don't let this boring monolog give you expectations on my non sophisticated personality. I will get your I.V in no problem, they call me "The I.V Goddess" round these parts.

Headshot Rochelle Owens

Rochelle Owens, Ketamine Guide | Human Experience Manager

I'm Rochelle, an intuitive guide and advocate for holistic care. With a diverse background that encompasses human resources, community outreach, sound healing, and empathic guidance, I am committed to accompanying you on your journey of self-discovery and healing. I believe that true healing involves addressing the deeper layers of our emotional and spiritual selves. Through intuitive insights, I guide you on a profound exploration of your thoughts and feelings, helping you uncover sources of healing and growth that may have remained hidden. This unique approach goes beyond traditional methods, allowing you to tap into your inner wisdom and embark on a transformative journey. My empathic nature serves as a guiding light throughout your healing process. At Restorative Health Primary Care, we prioritize creating a safe and compassionate space where you can freely express yourself without judgment. This allows you to explore your emotions, thoughts, and experiences in a supportive environment. I believe that healing extends beyond the individual, encompassing the communities we are a part of. Through active community outreach efforts, I am dedicated to sharing the knowledge and tools needed to promote mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being on a broader scale. Workshops, talks, and collaborative initiatives are just a few of the ways we engage with our local community to foster understanding, compassion, and resilience. Sound has the incredible ability to touch the deepest parts of our being, fostering harmony and balance. As a sound healer, I harness the power of sound vibrations to guide you towards a state of tranquility and healing. Sound therapy sessions provide a unique opportunity to experience profound relaxation, stress relief, and a sense of inner peace, complementing the transformative effects of our other offerings.

Matthew Randak (they/them), Ketamine Guide | Medical Assistant

My goal as a ketamine guide is to create a safe and comfortable space for each patient I work with. I studied psychology at Westminster College and I rely on contemporary scientific research to inform my practice. 

I have learned a lot while working as a ketamine guide over the past year. The experience I continue to gain each day teaches me to best support patients through their transformative experiences. Overall, I draw from my college education, my own independent research, my life experiences, my experience on the job, various patient anecdotes, and the wisdom from my many mentors and friends.

Admittedly, I do not subscribe to any spiritual or metaphysical modalities for healing, however, I do believe that through empathy, love, and patience I can effectively help anyone navigate their ketamine experiences.

I have been amazed to see so many lives changed by ketamine over the last year, mine included. Ketamine has been the best thing by far for my depression and anxiety, although I have also seen ketamine used effectively to treat PTSD, addiction, eating disorders, and chronic pain.

I am very passionate about psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and I would love to talk about the science of psychedelics with anyone who is curious. If you would like to chat, feel free to email me at

Lisa Palacios, Digital Media Management

I am an industrial engineering student who is also a social development, technology, and wellness enthusiast, and I believe firmly in the use of innovation and creativity to produce positive change. 

My first and foremost goal is to serve and help. Here at Restorative Health, I have the opportunity to achieve it every single day, having the possibility to improve my skills and develop myself as a person and individual in a community where everyone works for the well-being of others. 

With a background as a high-competition table tennis athlete, I've learned that mental health is primordial to live a happy, functional, and effective life and that physical health is crucial to enjoying every moment without pain nor regrets, and that's why Restorative Health is an excellent place to accomplish this mission by serving people and helping them live an enjoyable life. 

Here, all our efforts are for the people. 

Liseli Palacios, IT Management

I am a chemical engineering student, I like technology and helping people has become my passion. Seeing how people improve their quality of life and achieve things they once thought impossible is something that changes you and encourages you every day to do your part in making this world a better place. Here at Restorative Health we try our hardest to provide the best care and help our patients in any way we can, to see them walk out the door feeling better and happier is our goal.
