Vitae Health Center
I wholeheartedly believe that Naturopathic Medicine is the key to attaining excellent health. My conviction stems not only from firsthand experience with the healing power of nature, but acquired confidence in the variety of effective tools you and I have available to us - including nutrition, supplements, herbal medicine, IV nutrient therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement, craniosacral therapy, trigger point therapy, physical therapy and cellular detoxification.
My journey to becoming a doctor was a long one, its path circuitous but perfect. Like a cat I have lived many lives - from jazz musician to national sales manager to massage therapist. As a massage student I remember Dr. Bill Mitchell, one of the founders of Bastyr University, sharing a taste of licorice extract and regaling us with all of the medicinal properties it contains. This planted a tiny seed that germinated for several years. A trek through the botanical wonderland of the Peruvian Andes in 2001 inspired me to literally drop everything, sell the house, and pursue a career as a Naturopathic Doctor.
After earning my undergraduate degree at Seattle Pacific University, I attended Bastyr University, in Kenmore, Washington where I completed their graduate level training in naturopathic medicine. In addition to an immersive education in general practice, I participated in community outreach helping patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, HIV, and age-related illnesses.
My elective training included craniosacral therapy, nasal specific technique, nutrition, advanced hydrotherapy, neural prolotherapy, and IV & injection therapies. I have over 15 years of experience as a massage and craniosacral therapist, and am a Master level Reiki practitioner.
Fresh out of graduate school, I co-founded Interactive Health Clinic PLLC, and over the next three years developed invaluable experience meeting and caring for my patients, with whom I developed deep and lasting connections.
In 2014 I launched Vitae Health Center PLLC, keeping the same location in Lynnwood, WA - where I remain dedicated to helping both my existing clients and new patients find and maintain their optimum health and vitality, naturally~!
I believe in simple medicine; often the slightest adjustment can reap enormous rewards. I pledge to listen to you and work with you as an integral part of your health care team. My goal is to uncover the underlying causes of your health issues and help you remove them when possible rather than suppress them.
I treat chronic and acute issues in people of all ages. In addition to being your doctor, I strive to be a teacher, counselor, detective, cheerleader, and confidant.
While my journey to becoming a doctor was a long one, it fostered in me an appreciation and empathy for humanity that I carry into every aspect of my life. I look forward to sharing that with you as I join you on your path to improved health and vitality.
