My primary focus is on family health. I love helping both adults and children with allergies, digestive disorders, fatigue, chronic illness and much more. My philosophy centers on finding and eliminating the cause(s) of disease and addressing each patient as a whole, unique being. I believe that a nutritious diet, clean water, fresh air, movement and joy provide the foundation for excellent health. I choose natural therapies such as homeopathy, herbs, vitamins, minerals, hydrotherapy, prayer and meditation to help patients regain their body's healthy balance. I completed additional coursework and training in classical homeopathy and herbal medicine, as well as the standard ND curriculum, including 3 years of clinical nutrition. I see many different types of patients, but focus on digestive health, including both functional and inflammatory bowel diseases, and pediatrics - well and illness care. As a mother of three, I have plenty of additional "on-the-job training." I understand parents' worries around issues of development, childhood illnesses, vaccination, behavior and more. I believe that children thrive in an environment of loving respect and I aim for calm and kindness at every visit.
I grew up in Utah and Colorado and I love the mountains and playing outside. I also love spending time with my family, which these days consists of my husband, three kids, two dogs, and several chickens and fish. I studied psychology in college and counseling is still a big part of what I do with patients. My interest in how people work, love of the outdoors and nature, and strength in science all led me to naturopathic medicine. I have a passion for what I do!
