Before discovering naturopathic medicine, I was in search of a modality that would combine psychology and physiology together rather than have them separated. I stumbled across naturopathic medicine after I had decided to turn away from conventional medical school and became a massage practitioner for 8 years instead. Naturopathic medicine was closer to what I was looking for, it had a much more holistic approach. So I choose to enroll specifically at Bastyr University because it offered a dual track with clinical counseling psychology, allowing me to create the combination practice I desired. Being able to look at the body and mind from a multitude of spheres, both inside and outside the self, is a path that I had to forge on my own, and I haven't looked back.
I specialize in trauma, PTSD, personality disorders, and grief. Which means I am an expert in helping someone look at what has been left unresolved or unsupported. Then guiding them into a state of greater ease. My approach involves being proficient in a wide array of tools, and I combine psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral theory, and the neuroscience of relationships, to provide my clients and patients a very personal, tailored form of care. Not one path will fit everyone, so it is important to me to figure out each individual's key to greater health. It is my passion and am committed to it.
