Experience the joy of working with an independent physician who takes her time to deliver an unprecedented level of individualized care. Feel comfortable in a cozy office, and feel truly listened to. More and more doctors are leaving "assembly-line" medicine to work in small practices where they can focus on a clients' needs unrestrained by corporate regulations. Welcome home!
I take a natural approach
to wellness and illness:
- Search for underlying issues: chronic infections, food allergies, nutrient deficiencies, intestinal dysfunction, environmental toxicity, overgrowth of the wrong bugs in the gut, trauma stored in the body
- Put the good stuff in: nourish the body and spirit, replenish healthy gut microbes
- Get the bad stuff out: detox the toxins, kill bad bugs, unpack stuck emotions
The body knows how to do the rest.
I practice in collaboration with Dr. Satya Ambrose, ND, LAc, a longtime naturopath and acupuncturist who is senior faculty at both natural medicine universities in Portland. She specializes in treating complex undiagnosed illness and chronic infections like Lyme disease. I have been learning alongside her since 2014 and we collaborate closely to find the best approach.
