My Approach to Health

As a naturopathic doctor, I strive to achieve the highest level of health and vitality for those I treat. What makes me unique is that my definition of health is not based solely on the idea of absence of disease, but rather a balance between body, mind, and spirit. I am here to support, educate and inspire you to achieve your vision of health.

I strive to make a difference in the lives of my patients, their families, the local community, and the world at large. I work to be an attentive listener and to understand each person’s experiences and health story, and how it relates to his or her life. We can expect that your journey towards health and wellness will occur in stages. So from the beginning we create a clear plan and vision of your health goals and how we will achieve them. It is important for us to maintain open communication of your needs and goals. As a doctor, I encourage people to be empowered and active in their health process, as well as to ask questions, be curious and engaged. My role as a doctor is to be an educator, providing you the tools you need to take your well-being to the next level.
