My Practice

The history and principles of naturopathic medicine inform my practice on all levels. Most importantly, I take the time to get to know my patients, discussing their concerns, goals, and questions at each visit. My training helps me look at the whole person in front of me and consider their physical, mental, emotional, and social health when developing treatment plans with them. To make sure my patients get what’s right for their individual case, I use everything from herbal formulas to diet recommendations to conventional pharmaceutical medications in my practice. In my all interactions with patients, I seek to be evidence-informed, body positive, and integrative.

Evidence-Informed

Making certain that my recommendations are based on available evidence is a top priority for me. Naturopathic medicine continues to improve its base of research. In addition to historical uses, clinical observations, and case reports, natural products are being studied in rigorous scientific studies across the world. I have a master’s degree in integrative medicine research and have worked as an investigator on a number of clinical trials. I love reading new research and sharing it with my patients, especially when it involves natural medicine.

Body Positive

All bodies deserve respect, no matter if they are large, small, short, tall, or disabled. I practice within the model of Health at Every Size, emphasizing health instead of body size or weight.

Integrative

There are a lot of definitions of “integrative medicine.” In my practice, this means working with other healthcare providers to provide the absolute best care for my patients. I love working with patients who are already seeing a primary care provider to provide complementary medicine recommendations that can improve their health and wellness.
