As a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist, my mission is to provide holistic natural health care focusing on the whole person. My own early experiences with my personal and family members' health issues helped to shape my ideas about the importance of seeking treatments with the least risk and the greatest chance of benefit. I also became a believer in the power of a therapeutic partnership between doctor and patient; a relationship designed to promote balance, creativity, optimal health and wellness in each individual. My goals include empowering patients through education and guiding them to make the best choices for themselves. I use lifestyle and nutritional advice, quality supplements, herbal medicine, functional medicine testing and acupuncture with my patients. I have enjoyed helping patients improve their fertility, adrenal, thyroid, menopause, women's and men's health, digestive, skin, stress, autoimmune, musculo-skeletal and other health issues.
