Wellness is a conscious choice, a skill to be learned, and an adventurous journey. It is a gift to be appreciated and maintained.
Everyone deserves optimal health and feelings of well-being. Wellness is a conscious choice, a skill to be learned, and an adventurous journey. It is a gift to be appreciated and maintained!
Because of this belief, after 8 years of training and a 2 year family medicine residency in natural medicine at National University of Natural Medicine's teaching clinic, I founded my clinic: A Family Wellness Center.
This year I celebrate 25 years of working as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor here in Portland Oregon. I love integrating the science and art of natural medicine and working on on one with people like you! I use my skills to support people of all ages towards their goals of becoming well and staying well.
At my clinic we strive to create a safe and positive place where we can support you in to achieving your health goals. I provide a customized approach to your needs. First I listen carefully to your symptom presentation and then combine your story with the appropriate diagnostic work up. Once we have identified causal factors I offer you a strategic treatment plan. Together we create a health strategy which will help you achieve balance within your body, mind, and emotions.
By attending to what we put in and on our bodies, by balancing work with play and by trading stressful experiences for forgiveness and joy we can achieve the healthful feelings, the emotional freedom and functional mobility we all seek. Your health journey is your life journey!
You may feel that my services fill many to all of your primary healthcare needs but please be assured that Naturopathic medicine can be easily integrated compatibly with other types of healthcare as well. In fact, referrals to other trained professionals and specialists may be part of our over all strategy for you. I appreciate networking with practitioners of a wide variety of health systems and skills; for my ongoing education and for your maximum benefit.
