Practice Information
I am a primary care Naturopathic Physician, specializing in Pediatrics, Women’s Health, and Breastfeeding and Lactation Support. I provide medical care as well as preventative treatment.
As a Naturopathic physician I practice wellness based health care by providing you with tools to empower yourself and strive toward optimal health. I feel strongly that part of being healthy is understanding your body and to be able to listen to its wisdom. Naturopathic treatment is focused on the cause of illness and stimulating the body’s vital force to come back to a state of health.

As a naturopathic pediatric specialist I nurture and help create strong and healthy vital forces in children through education and natural medicine. In caring for women, I provide many natural solutions to commonly experienced women’s healthcare issues. As a lactation specialist I am delighted to provide support to nursing families.

In addition to my education from Bastyr University, I have received special training from Seattle Midwifery School to earn the credentials Certified Lactation Educator (CLE), which will allow me to take the board exam to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am also pursuing additional education in homeopathy and completing coursework through the New England School of Homeopathy.
I am a family practice physician practicing in Seattle Washington. I am a graduate of Bastyr University, with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. Prior to Naturopathic studies I attended Eastern Washington University and completed a Masters of Science with a major in Biology.

My areas of study and interest include naturopathic family medicine with special interests in pediatrics, women’s health, breastfeeding and lactation support, and adolescent health. I believe creating a strong foundation of health knowledge is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I also believe strongly in the principals of naturopathic medicine, with Docere – Doctor as teacher – being the principal I hold nearest my heart.
