Complimentary 15-minute consultations are available for potential new clients.

Inspired by the naturopathic principles of Doctor as Teacher, I am passionate about helping patients obtain a clear understanding of their condition and working together to establish an improved path to wellness. Whether there is a diagnosis of cancer or any other chronic condition, treating the whole person and addressing the underlying cause of disease is key.

Board-certified in naturopathic oncology, I have specialized in integrative oncology since 2004. My goal with each patient is to create and implement a personalized natural strategy that safely works to reduce side effects, support immune function, and offer cancer-fighting benefits to patients actively undergoing conventional oncology treatment in the form of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, and surgery. I also work with patients in remission and those who are at high risk for cancer, prioritizing cancer prevention.

After thorough evaluation, including patient interview and review of laboratory studies, I create an individualized plan for each patient utilizing herbal medicine, nutrition as medicine, and lifestyle counseling.

I thoroughly enjoy the work that I do and also find joy in exercising, learning new things, laughing, listening to music and spending time with family and friends.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
