About me

I have been practicing Naturopathic Medicine since my graduation from Bastyr University in 1998. I specialize in Ayurvedic medicine and am a Certified Ayurvedic practitioner. I also have background in different modalities of physical medicine; I am a certified Bowenwork practitioner and have practiced Craniosacral therapy since 2000. These professional endeavors reflect my belief that in order to achieve health one must be fit in mind, body, and spirit. 

My approach

I maintain a family practice and practice primary care within the tenets of Naturopathic medicine. Most illnesses respond well to a holistic approach that includes botanicals or homeopathies as well as diet and lifestyle modifications.

In addition to Naturopathic and Ayurvedic medicine, I utilize conventional methods in my practice, such as blood tests and annual gynecological exams. These comprehensive services are very successful in treating a wide variety of illnesses, from chronic conditions (such as digestion problems, headaches or chronic fatigue syndrome) to acute illness (like a cold or flu) to basic preventative care.
