“My primary commitment is to help people reach their highest possible level of health. I believe that people’s lives get better when they are healthy; without our health, we are limited in so many ways. My goals are to educate and empower so that my patients have the tools they need to take command of their own health and their own lives.

My interest in natural medicine started many years ago in my homeland of Australia. I have a background in the fitness industry, and learning about nutrition and natural healing went hand-in-hand with that. Naturopathic medicine blends the art of healing with the scientific foundations of medicine, which makes it such a valuable form of medicine for both acute and chronic health conditions.

When a doctor tells you they do not know what is wrong with you, or that they have done all they can, do not settle for that. There is more we can do.

I look forward to working with you to restore your health and vitality.”
