How I Practice
My approach to medicine is medically based and naturally focused with an emphasis on individualized and collaborative care. There is no one-size-fits-all cure. In order to see results, we will need to work together to get to the root cause of health issues.
I practice a trauma-informed and body-positive model of care. I accept people of all ages, shapes, colors, gender and sexual identifications and backgrounds. My practice is a safe space, and I will always do my best to make you feel that way.
You can expect transparency when working with me. I may not have all the answers. I’ll let you know if I need to do more research, and I will always provide a referral for cases that are outside my scope of practice.
A naturopathic doctor (ND) must attend a 4-year graduate level, medical school accredited by the CNME (Council on Naturopathic Medical Education). After rigorous academic and clinic training, NDs must pass a series of board examinations to be licensed to practice medicine. NDs are educated in all of the same basic sciences as MDs, but also study holistic and non-toxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimized wellness.
Using clinical nutrition, botanical medicine and homeopathy in addition to conventional western medicine modalities, naturopaths are able to support and promote the body’s natural healing process and help patients reach their full health potential.
