I have been studying and practicing natural medicine for over 20 years and I’ve had the privilege of working alongside some of the best minds in our field. My practice centers around nutrition and European homeopathy with a focus on personalized care. I work with the underlying causes of disease, not just symptom management. I expect that my patients will get (and stay) healthy and I ask that they are an integral part of that process. After all, I decided to pursue naturopathic medicine as a career during a personal health crisis of my own.
My practice offers some of the best technology available for evaluating whole-body health and my particular specialties are women’s hormone balancing, nutrition and digestive complaints, and tick-borne disease, like Lyme and its common co-infections. But truly, I see many different types of chronic disease.
As a naturopathic physician I recognize and respect our incredible healing capacities: the thousands of self-regulating mechanisms that keep our bodies in balance and working properly. To my thinking, disease is simply the failure of those functions and overwhelm of the system. Thus the true job of the physician is to restore the body’s inherent ability to rebuild and regenerate. Naturopathic medicine offers this kind of approach.
