I was attracted to naturopathic medicine because it views health as a brilliantly interconnected and complex system. Now, with a decade of clinical experience and continued education, I focus my practice on complex and chronic diseases while still adhering to the same fundamental naturopathic principles. My practice focuses on the treatment chronic illnesses including: Lyme/tick-borne infections, mold toxicity, chronic fatigue syndrome, auto-immune diseases and chronic pain disorders.
