My Medical Approach.

Welcome! I'm a licensed naturopathic physician in Arizona. I work with patients of all ages to address chronic health concerns, integrative mental/emotional health and preventative medicine. My goal is to hold a safe, neutral space where we can collaborate to find ways to support your healing process.​


Although I am trained and licensed as primary-care physician, I offer adjunct naturopathic care only. I recommend all patients see a primary-care provider regularly for routine screenings, medical diagnostics, and urgent concerns.

My Story.

I discovered naturopathic medicine during my undergraduate studies at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. I had struggled with chronic skin and digestive conditions, which I believed was my permanent state of health. Though it seems intuitive now, I never realized my ailments were contributing to one another. Each doctor I saw addressed only one area of my health, and I was always left feeling helpless. As a naturopathic patient, I felt whole and seen. I learned ways to stimulate my body's healing ability and ways to begin peeling away layers of trauma and disease. I received my bachelor's degree in chemistry and began my professional journey including positions in public health epidemiology, education and research. I spent time traveling internationally and moving throughout the western United States.  


My path to naturopathic medicine continued when I returned to school to complete my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree at National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. I worked with physicians focusing on primary care, mental health, women's health and pediatrics. I obtained additional training in pelvic floor physical therapy and clinical homeopathy. During naturopathic medical school, I became pregnant, naturally, with my first child (after five years of unexplained infertility) and began my miraculous journey as a mother. Naturopathic medicine has helped my family and me find our way to wellness over and over again. It is one of my greatest joys to aid in this process for others.  ​ 


Outside of the clinic, I  spend time with my wonderful spouse and our two adventurous children. I love evening walks, reading books, studying medical literature, wilderness time (hiking, camping, foraging), gardening, cooking, traveling, and music.​
