Health regeneration is a slow transformative process. Naturopathic Medicine is intentional medicine and we aim at going beyond the surface of your health concerns to guide you on your health journey.
Regular movement. Fulfilling relationships. Spiritual enlightenment. Consistent sleep. Finding joy in life. Optimal health is not attainable without these foundational principles.
We believe in re-laying the groundwork for optimal body function and accomplish this through our 4 phase approach. This is what sets intentional medicine apart from conventional care. We are not a one size fits all solution.
Phase 1: Reboot
Phase 2: Regenerate
Phase 3: Refine
Phase 4: Retain
We believe every patient’s body possesses the answer to their healing. When a doctor works as a teacher and applies the 4th principle of naturopathic medicine, being aware of the connection between our mind and body plays a large part in healing. Emotional health is the ultimate source of well being.
We work to help foster a healthy mindset concerning life and health. You must believe in yourself, the innate abilities of the body, and the reasons for health goals to bring about lasting and sustainable change.

“The high and only mission of a physician is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed.” – Samuel Hahnemann
As licensed Naturopathic Doctors, we are able to diagnose, prevent and treat both acute and chronic illnesses using botanical medicine, homeopathic remedies and nutrition. I am a passionate advocate for my patients and I am happy to collaborate with other doctors and healthcare practitioners. l see the body through the vitalistic lens to help my patients move through an array of physical, emotional and spiritual transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible. The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is what separates it from allopathic medicine. We follow the therapeutic order which is not a sequential order but rather a guide to remind us to determine the best and least invasive treatments for each individual person. Sometimes it’s surgery and other times it is a homeopathic remedy. It just depends.
A licensed naturopathic physician (ND) attends a four-year, accredited, graduate-level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same biomedical sciences as an MD. In addition to medical and clinical sciences, naturopathic education incorporates natural and nontoxic treatments with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. Naturopathic medical education incorporates standard medical curriculum, and studies including clinical nutrition, physical medicine, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling. A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that they may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.
Each appointment is all about exceptional care. Please fill out the appropriate patient forms and submit them at least 48 hours before your first appointment. This paperwork will be reviewed extensively beforehand so that you will have the most effective use of your visit, so please answer each question as thoroughly and honestly as possible. Your provider will spend most of that time reviewing your symptoms, medical and family history, current medications, supplements, and concerns. Any necessary physical exams will be performed, and any lab-work including imaging needed ordered. On either the first or second visit, an individualized plan will be formed for you.
For most, after the first few visits, follow-ups become further spaced, with a normal schedule including follow-ups quarterly or semi-annually. Our focus is to provide extraordinary care – not simply treating the physical symptoms, but also taking into account the mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of dis-ease. As you can imagine, building this relationship takes time. Your visit with us is likely to be more extensive than most of your other physician appointments, so please be prepared to spend 45-60 minutes at your first appointment.
