About Me: I love being a health detective! Every patient is a mystery waiting to unfold….and the most amazing experience is to witness this transformation using naturopathic medicine. This is healing, true healing of the body and mind. In addition to loving my profession, I love being with family and friends, spending time outdoors, practicing yoga and meditation, cooking with my husband (he’s by far the better chef in our house!), reading, drinking tea, and playing with our animals.

My Mission: My mission is to help you regain health and happiness! Your body already possesses the innate ability to heal and it is speaking to you by way of your symptoms. If we become still and listen, we will know what our body needs to become well again. Together, we will figure this out. For most of us, all our body needs is a gentle stimulus and a bit of support for weakened organ systems to feel great again.
