I am a licensed, primary care physician with a Doctorate of Naturopathy from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland. I am a member of the Oncology Academy of Naturopathic Physicians and the American Association Of Naturopathic Physicians.
I was first introduced to the power of alternative and natural medicine in the mid-1980’s while living in Boston, MA. I discovered the benefits of eating healthy and that there were effective alternatives to treating many challenging diseases. Since graduating in 1999 I have practiced in Vancouver, applying naturopathic principles to succesfully treat difficult conditions such as autoimmune disease, allergies, acute and chronic infections, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, cancer support and many others. Today, I’m able to offer the best natural therapies while working with wholistic practioners and medical doctors to give patients some of the most effective options available in the Portland/Vancouver area.
Most medical insurance companies cover my services if your employer chooses the alternative medicine benefit. Washington and Oregon state Medicaid plans also provide some coverage. Call your insurance customer service to see if it includes a naturopathic benefit, or call my office and we can look into it for you.
