I believe wholeheartedly in happiness. 

I’m also pretty keen on combining logic, intuition, and simplicity.

My practice focuses on eliminating the barriers to patients’ health and happiness goals by creating a safe place where patients can approach their health honestly and with an inquisitive mind.  I am in love with naturopathic medicine because it empowers patients and enables doctors to see conditions from a multitude of angles.  This allows me to use the many tools at my disposal to create individual treatment plans that are directed toward all aspects of wellness. I get excited to learn more as relationships build, and I am I practice so that I can see people feel better and live happier!
