Description

I am a board certified Naturopathic primary care physician and I graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), the oldest accredited naturopathic medical university in North America and one of the most respected in the world. In addition to my doctorate degree, I spent three years studying integrative mental health with techniques focusing on the mind-body connection and I love to incorporate those techniques into my practice. The human experience is complex and oftentimes when someone is experiencing an illness or disease, mental and spiritual health suffer right along with the physical. This philosophy in healing is what lead me to naturopathic medicine and it is why I practice holistically. Because each person is unique, I tailor my treatment plans to the needs of each individual person using lifestyle coaching, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, laboratory testing, bodywork/massage, and flower essences. My goal as a practitioner is to aide you in finding optimal balance and wellness in mind, body, and spirit.

​I am professionally certified in Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Massage and Integrative Pelvic Therapy. Both modalities use specific techniques to address a wide range of complaints including, but not limited to: back pain, GI dysfunction, heavy or abnormal menses, painful menses, pain with intercourse, prolapse, endometriosis, erectile dysfunction, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and so much more!

I want to help you discover the strength of your roots. Whether through my care or the outside resources I can connect you with, I would be honored to work with you through your healing journey.

I am originally from Bryan, Texas. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, playing soccer, cheering on the women's national soccer team and the Portland Thorns, going for walks by the river, and soaking up as much sun as I can! I enjoy being outdoors and will find any excuse to do so.
