I will take you on a Healing Path where we will Nurture your Roots and Enhance your Vitality.
I look forward to discovering your health potential.
Raised in New Hampshire on a 75-acre farm, I spent my childhood playing in nature, climbing trees, working in the family garden, milking goats. Through this time I fell in love with my connection to the earth, one that lives deep in my heart.
In my mid-twenties while experiencing my own health challenge, I was encouraged by my father to work with a Naturopathic doctor. The experience proved to be life-changing and I decided, a few years later, to study the medicine that had brought so much healing to my own life.
Dedicated to both listening to and hearing each individual’s needs, my passion is to create a partnership between doctor and patient, encouraging each patient to be a steward of his or her own health. It has taken some time to acknowledge all that I do, but as my patients will express, I am more than just a doctor or an acupuncturist. I am a healer. A visit to my office involves conversation, laughter, music, sometimes tears, but always support and encouragement. Change can be difficult for some but always powerful. Utilizing various treatment options, all based in the fabric of nature, my goal is to guide you, your family, your friends, and any other loved ones, towards health and balance on all levels: Body, Mind and Spirit.
I strive to make my patients feel welcome and relaxed. Guided by the Naturopathic principles, I do not simply treat symptoms but, instead, view them as an indication of your state of health. These forms of healing are not typically “quick fix” medicine but, instead, involve a journey into your lifestyle, goals, and challenges that takes time and dedication. I am committed to identifying the cause of your health issues and will work tirelessly to do so as well as encourage you to do the same.
I work with children and adults of all ages and treat both chronic and acute illnesses. My patients love my sense of humor and genuine love of my healing art. I am passionate about, and dedicated to, that in which I believe. In my personal time, I can be found outdoors, hiking, running, camping and skiing with my dogs and laughing with my friends.
Your Mind, Body and Spirit are all deeply connected. Neglecting this connection, I have found, can lead to a variety of challenges. This is not a quick-fix journey. This is a deep discovery into imbalances revealed through patterns, health challenges and obstacles.
During the initial visit you will share some of the challenges that have brought you to seek help and you will learn about how your body reveals imbalance. This is the beginning of a journey into these patterns. Not simply a quick fix prescription.
My own health struggles in my 20s took me on a journey that has brought incredible enlightenment, healing and awareness. It has been a profound path to walk and I feel incredibly grateful too all of the teachers and healers who guided and supported me along the way. Those who held up the mirror to help me discover my own patterns.
