I’m so glad you’re here.
I want you to know what optimal wellness looks like specifically for you, in the here and the now.
By establishing yourself as one of my patients, you’re basically saying, “I want you to be the one who walks beside me while I navigate my health.”
It is a profound honor for me to experience life with you as your naturopathic physician.
Suffering through my own experience with illness is the very thing that made me want to be a naturopathic physician. As a child, I had daily abdominal pain, severe seasonal allergies, hyperactivity, and too many rounds of antibiotics. Many of these symptoms continued on through college, which is when my health got worse. I developed interstitial cystitis when I was 20 years old. Alternative medicine is what helped me to fully recover from this disease!
I know that naturopathic medicine works, and it works well.
I spent most of my 20s in school, getting an undergraduate degree in Health Policy and Administration at Penn State and then a doctorate of naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University. My education gave me the science to help you, but my health has given me a unique perspective I couldn’t have gotten any other way! My education and personal health history have merged to help you find and know what wellness looks like for your body. I love that I get to do this, and it brings so much more meaning to the suffering I knew so closely when I was sick.
My practice is unique in that I see the pediatric population (newborns, babies, kids, adolescents) in addition to adults. I love seeing all ages!
I utilize nutrition and lifestyle interventions as much as possible, which does require you to put in the work on your end. I also prescribe high quality supplements, with the goal for you to be on as few supplements as possible. I do not hesitate to prescribe medication when necessary.
In terms of my practice style, I like to have fun while also being detail-oriented and serious about your health. I like to explain things and I like to write things down. Most of my patients say that I’m very thorough. I try to be the doctor I’ve always wanted for myself, but never found.
