I am a naturopathic doctor, graduating with honors from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. I see patients with a variety of concerns, with a focus on autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal and liver disease, mood imbalances, eating disorders, chronic fatigue, women's health, dermatology, and pediatric issues such as Autism Spectrum, gastrointestinal dysfunction, attention deficit disorder, and allergies. The primary modalities I use are clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage, and counseling. I currently practice from Eugene, Oregon and also work with patients in distant or remote areas via phone or Skype consultations, and have a virtual medicinary which is able to deliver the recommended treatments to your home or other convenient location. My experience with naturopathic medicine helped me to heal from chronic disease conditions without the need for pharmaceutical management. From this experience I became passionate about bringing this form of medical care to others who struggle with chronic disease as well. Many chronic medical conditions are poorly managed by traditional health care systems, and as a naturopathic doctor I seek to find and treat the underlying cause of disease symptoms. I see my patients as individuals, and personalize treatments based on unique needs.
