Prior to receiving my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, I received a BA in anthropology from Dartmouth College, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  I discovered in a class titled “The Anthropology of Health and Illness” that rarely is any disease confined to the physical body or the psyche alone.  Rather, the experience of health and dis-ease is a complex interplay of social, economic, psychological, and physical factors.  

Having a particular interest in Lyme disease and associated infections, I have studied the work of many leading experts in Lyme diagnosis and treatment, including Dr Klinghardt MD, Dr Horowitz MD, Dr Ross MD, and Dr Burrascano, MD.  I continue to stay up to date with current research by attending International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) conferences and other related conferences throughout the year.

My particular medical interests include:  Lyme disease, men’s health, gastrointestinal health, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, anxiety and depression, and female hormone balancing.  I have pursued additional training in these areas through ILADS, the Institute of Functional Medicine, and A4M.

Attaining health is a process, and I strive to provide proven solutions while supporting and empowering you along the way.  I work with each patient’s desires, beliefs, and values to develop a treatment and management approach that works.
