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 and in home visits as well as office. I look forward to working with you on your health goals.

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.

Guides | Therapists
Rochelle Owens, Ketamine Guide
I am an emotional support guide for people embarking on their healing journey. I am attuned in reiki healing and a certified sound practitioner. You will often find me hosting sound baths or intuitive dance classes in the community. I love bringing people together and creating experiences for us to tap into our inner child.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jo Montano (she/her), Ketamine Guide | Patient Coordinator
I am an intuitive energy healer that specializes in the heart and mind connection. My approach to guiding is informed by both science and spirituality. Some of my primary focuses are working with people with ADHD, depression, addiction, and anxiety. I use a trauma-informed approach to connect and integrate our multidimensional reality. I’ve worked with patients to become healthier and more functional in our toxic society. Healing is a very personal and unique experience for each individual. My only mission is to hold space for those seeking healing, in order to ensure the success of our evolution as a collective consciousness.
