When I was 13, my pediatrician wanted to put me on birth control, because I had acne. I was shocked that at 13 years old I could be put on hormones for my acne! Sadly, this is not an anomaly. Luckily my mom said no. I sought out a doctor that would help me treat the CAUSE instead of the SYMPTOM. From that moment on, my life took me down a path that has allowed me to help others address the cause of their symptom or disease, not just smack a bandaid on the problem.
When it comes to infertility this is especially important. IVF/IUI/ICSI do not address the cause of infertility. I believe they override your body's intuition and that there is a reason you have not been able to conceive. Those procedures are absolutely necessary in some cases, and have resulted in beautiful children.
The great thing about what I get to do with my clients, is in most cases avoid the need for these procedures, and when the procedures are necessary, they are much more likely to be successful, and we have prepared you for a HEALTHY baby and pregnancy.
I am committed to getting to the bottom of your fertility challenges. I am committed to helping couples, before they start trying to conceive, become incredibly healthy to maximize their fertility and the health of their baby.
I want all of our kids to have a chance at health, at feeling good as teens and adults, at ENJOYING their life.
If we can start from the beginning; before pregnancy, during pregnancy, early childhood, and throughout childhood, then massive amounts of chronic disease, 'dieting,' body-image challenges, and poor food relationships can be prevented.
The health of future generations is incredibly important to me, and it is MUCH easier to start during childhood than it is to try to reverse these issues in adulthood.
My passion for medicine has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. When it was time for me to apply to medical school, I knew there had to be a better way to practice medicine than what is widely accepted. I understand that my role as a physician; is to guide, inspire, and teach my patients, so that they, not only can understand their own body, but understand how they can reach their goals. My mission is to help couples start or grow their family healthfully. In my practice I treat the underlying cause of infertility and help couples optimize health before conception. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my husband, daughter, and family, our friends, and our dogs Bruin, Bailey, and Carlton.
I earned Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. I spread my message through speaking engagements, and love forming a deeper relationship with my clients in regards to health and fertility.
I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the State of Connecticut.
