About Naturopathic Care
Naturopathic Medicine is a form of primary care medicine that blends conventional medicine with natural therapies such as herbs, nutrition, and counseling. Naturopathic Medicine addresses the root cause of disease and is based on the philosophical approach that the body has an innate ability to heal when given the appropriate support. A Naturopathic Doctor (ND) looks at all the factors contributing to a person’s present health status and all the obstacles to healing.

I turned to Naturopathic Medicine in my 20s, when conventional doctors couldn't figure out why I was getting sick every time I ate. I found myself at the clinic of the naturopathic medical school a few blocks from my house. There they helped me address and heal the overwhelming anxiety that was preventing me from keeping food down. They made me want to make the world a better place.
After I got better I knew I wanted to help people who have not found satisfactory healing or guidance from the conventional medical world, who need help achieving their wellness goals, and who want to prevent or reverse disease by making changes in their daily lives.
I received my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (formerly National College of Natural Medicine) in Portland, OR, and followed it with a two-year residency in Integrative Oncology at the Goshen Center for Cancer Care. Through that experience I came to believe that no cancer treatment is complete without these four professionals: an oncologist, a mental health therapist, a dietician, and a naturopathic doctor.
