I’ve always known there was something more to health and healing. In my 20’s I had some health challenges and started working with a chiropractor and acupuncturist. These treatments made a significant difference in my health and helped me to eliminate my use and need for over-the-counter pain killers. It was several years later that I learned about naturopathic medicine, once I did I knew that was my calling. I started my studies within the year. It was one of the best decisions of my life.
I’ve been a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist for over 15 years. From the beginning of my training to the present time my education and training has never stopped. Learning about the body and it’s complexities is a journey as are health and healing.
My expertise is looking at you as a whole and helping uncover the blocks that are holding you back from returning your body to balance. I use the tools of functional and naturopathic medicines, the wisdom of energetic and Chinese medicines, and your history to understand and determine the best path for your healing.
My passion is creating a partnership between doctor and patient, exciting and encouraging you to be the sovereign of your own health. Together, we create your history using all aspects of your life; physical, emotional, and spiritual. I find this comprehensive approach to health leads us to uncover the root causes that prevent you from your greatest well-being.
I look forward to working with you as we uncover the clues leading to your optimal health!
