Approach to care
When I was a child, if you had asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would have told you a doctor. Then I would’ve added and a scientist, and a counselor, and a teacher. I don’t know if it was by luck or fate that I found a profession where I get to be all of those things.
My love for science and medicine inspired me to fill my brain with the knowledge needed to be a doctor and lifelong learner of medicine, while my experiences over the last 20 years working, teaching, and volunteering with diverse groups in the US and abroad have filled my heart with the lessons that cannot be found in books. I bring these skills to my practice every day and take the time to truly listen to my patients.
As a Naturopathic doctor, I have worked with thousands of people to uncover the root causes of their health concerns. I credit my use of integrative medicine to help me thrive and have my (healthy and energetic) second child just shy of 40. I am passionate about helping others thrive and create a strong and vibrant foundation of health at any age.
