Naturopathic doctor to help you beat burnout. Balance hormones, relieve anxiety and depression, manage pain and fatigue fatigue naturally.
I treat the whole person – mind, body, and spirit - using least invasive therapies first in order to minimize harmful side effects. As a partner on your healing journey, I serve as a guide so that you can connect to the healer within yourself and achieve a constant state of balanced health. By thoroughly investigating the root cause of symptoms, my therapeutic goal is to remove maintaining causes of disease.
As a licensed ND in the state of California, I completed a four year medical post-graduate and one year residency program at Bastyr University, a nationally accredited Naturopathic Medical school. My bachelor’s degree is in Neuroscience and Behavior from Barnard College of Columbia University in New York. Studying behavioral neuroscience has shaped my perspective that psychological health is key to maintaining physical health.
The principles of naturopathic medicine - to treat the root cause and to treat the whole person – resonate with me on a very deep level. The road to healing, especially with chronic disease, is not always an easy one, and sometimes confronting the root of our suffering is what is most necessary to heal and become whole. We will find out what that most underlying cause is, whether it is food allergies, toxins, genetics, or a stressful life event that set your body off balance and you have never felt well since.
My goal is for you to fulfill your highest purpose in life, and having a chronic disease can often prevent one from doing so. Your biggest demon may be a hormone imbalance such as thyroid or adrenal dysfunction, menopause, menstrual irregularities, mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety, food or environmental allergies, or autoimmune conditions. I will manage your chronic disease through naturopathic treatments such as individualized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, bioidentical hormone therapy, botanical medicine, homeopathy, and Ayurvedic medicine so that you can regain control of your health and stop your disease from dictating your quality of life.
Many of my clients leave their first visit feeling hopeful because I give them answers as to why they are suffering and experiencing troublesome symptoms, and provide clear explanations for all treatment plans. Many clients express relief because it is the first time in their life that they have felt heard and listened to by a doctor.
Neurofeedback trains your brain to automatically respond to stress in a healthier way, so that you show up every day as your best self and have the vitality, resilience, and stamina to take on the demands of life.
How it works: Electrode leads are placed on specific areas on your scalp. The leads will measure the electrical activity of your brain through an EEG signal and the device will administer low voltage microcurrent to bring your brain waves back into balance. Repeated treatments over time lead to physiological changes in your brain so that it can respond to stress in a healthier way.
