My specialty is human-centered, natural medicine, and I want to help you live your best life—I’m a naturopathic physician.

 

You are the intersection the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual you. I am trained to look at disease as the results of imbalances in these areas.

 

I wasn’t one of those kids who dreamed of wearing a white coat, and I didn’t imagine myself in an emergency room or hospital setting. I have the deepest respect for conventional Western medicine. It has its place and has saved many lives.

 

However, I knew that my role in health care would be different.

 

I watched my grandmother at the end of her life, over-medicated and over-medicalized. She was on so many medications one Thanksgiving that she could barely sit up and was drooling out the side of her mouth—she was a complete zombie.

Her doctors cared, but they just were not well equipped with tools to do more than manage disease or practice heroic medicine.  Helpless can’t begin to describe how I felt.

 

After the economic meltdown of 2008 and getting laid off two times in 12 months from my online marketing jobs in Silicon Valley, and a quarter-life crisis searching for my way of contributing to the world, I found my way to Bastyr University.

 

After thousands of hours of clinical training later at Bastyr University, I hope I can help you become the best version of you so you can do the work you were meant to do. Life is just to short to do anything else.
