I strongly believe that the body has an inherent ability to heal. My goal is to be a facilitator to that healing process, using a multitude of effective therapeutics, specifically chosen for you. I understand and respect that you are an individual in a unique body and I will work with you towards your health goals.
Maintaining the balance of mind, body and spirit is the foundation of my philosophy. Prevention is the cornerstone of my Naturopathic approach, and I am happy to evaluate all areas of a person’s health and make suggestions for optimization, even in the absence of symptoms.
Since 2004, I have had the honor to work alongside my patients, encouraging them to take an active role in their health. I do not practice “green allopathic medicine” (meaning I do not just hand you an herbal supplement that does the same as a pharmaceutical) instead I ask a lot of questions and do a thorough investigation (which may include lab testing and imaging) to aid my pursuit in finding the root cause of imbalance or illness. Yes, I can just treat symptoms, especially to give you short-term relief, but my ultimate goal is to get you to a deeper state of healing and balance.
My treatment plans may require some hard work on your end, but if you are not up for that right now, I will support you in this moment. I want to hear your story, as it as important as any medical test, and I listen with a compassionate ear. I strive to give you 100% of my attention when I am in the room with you and work from my heart, as I believe there is no other way to practice medicine.
While trained as a primary care physician I have a few areas of special interest:
- Digestive disorders: Indigestion, constipation, GERD, IBS, IBD, food allergy testing
- Mental emotional: anxiety, effects of daily stress
- Women’s health: Annual exams, PMS, menopause, general support for healthy female cycling
- Fertility: I have had the pleasure to work with many women and men on enhancing fertility and am dedicated to optimizing health for soon-to-be parents with my unique pre-conception treatment plan.
- Therapeutic detoxification and cleansing programs: Individualized for each patient.
I primarily utilize acupuncture, nutrition education, herbal medicine, selective supplementation, soft tissue work and lifestyle counseling. My acupuncture treatments are more like a spa experience~ you need to try it!
Combining the tools and wisdom from East and West that I learned in medical school and honed in clinical experience, I offer truly holistic health care. I love this work and consider it an honor and privilege to be invited into the lives of my patients.
