MY INTENTION

I believe that health affects our happiness, the way we see ourselves, the way we connect with others, and the way we perceive and experience our world. It has a direct impact on our ability to live in every moment.

Good health enables us to do what we love, and live an experience-rich life full of energy & light. 

My goal is simple; to support you (all of you) in health, naturally.

MY APPROACH

As a licensed naturopathic doctor I am medically trained and naturally focused. But first and foremost I want to get to know who you are, what is important to you, and what you want to get up to in this world.

“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease then to know what sort of disease a person has”

 

Hippocrates-The Father of Medicine

 

 

I incorporate a holistic approach to viewing your body, and believe in the healing power of nature; your body's ability to heal itself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually when provided the proper terrain. I focus on preventative medicine that involves detecting and addressing the root cause of your symptoms in order to address imbalances and dysfunction upstream (before these symptoms meet the criteria for a diagnosis).

Treatment combines adjunctive natural therapies with modern medicine, and are integrative, and both evidence-based and eclectic, emphasizing the important role of diet and lifestyle in overall well-being.
