About Me

My Story

I am a Naturopathic Doctor and specialize in the treatment of pediatrics, chronic infections, Lyme disease, mold toxicity, women's health, and mental health disorders.  Although I enjoy treating patients of all ages, my primary passion has always been in pediatric medicine.  I enjoy treating a variety of different pediatric conditions, but am especially passionate about treating mental, neurological, and developmental disorders in children.  It breaks my heart to see any child suffer, and it is my goal in life to reduce that suffering.

 

I strongly believe in the principles and philosophy of naturopathic medicine.  My goals are to help my patients achieve optimal health by: finding the root cause(s) of imbalance, removing any obstacles to cure in their life, using natural methods to stimulate their own innate healing ability, and educating and empowering them to make and maintain positive changes regarding their health

 

My approach to treatment is not only holistic, but also individualized to every single patient that walks through my door. I specialize in classical homeopathy, botanical medicine, and clinical nutrition, but incorporate all naturopathic modalities and principles in my practice.

I received my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona.  I then had the honor of being selected for a one-year family medicine residency at the Southwest Naturopathic Medical Center.  I currently practice at Windhorse Naturopathic in Brattleboro, VT, but also treats patients all over the country using homeopathic medicine.  Before moving to VT, I worked as an adjunct clinical faculty member at Bastyr University where I supervised pediatric focused clinical rotations. I have also contributed to the field by serving as a board member for the California Naturopathic Doctors Association and chair for the Professional Development Committee.  Last year I presented at the the Joint American Homeopathy Conference on the topic of “Treating Mental and Emotional Pain in Kids and Adolescents.”  One of my greatest recent accomplishments was publishing a book this past December called “The Essential Guide to Adaptogens.”  I wrote this book to educate the public on natural remedies to treat stress which I found fitting in our current pandemic. 

I have done extensive training in homeopathy, pediatric special needs, mold toxicity, lyme disease, botanical medicine, and much more.
