In my practice, I see people of all ages and for all types of conditions. As a family physician, I enjoy getting to know my patients as individuals. Visits include discussion of nutrition, exercise, relationships, & sleep patterns along with physical exam and appropriate labs. For treatment, I focus on the foundations of health with lifestyle counseling and supportive therapies, including herbs, physical therapy, and nutritional medicine. When referrals are necessary, I maintain an active network of specialists to coordinate care. I accept all major insurance plans, including Apple health.
A native of Whidbey Island, I attended the University of Washington for my undergraduate, where I studied community health & development. After, I earned my naturopathic medicine degree from Bastyr University. I have completed advanced training in herbal medicine, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, IV nutrient therapy, and children's health. Out of the clinic, I find balance by spending time with my family, writing, cooking, and playing outside.
Herbal medicine is based on the use of plants with healing properties that are taken internally or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, many different cultures have used herbs to treat illness and improve vitality. Currently, research into herbal medicine is on the rise. At Mukilteo Natural Health, treatments are based on both traditional knowledge and scientific evidence. Our clinic uses the highest quality tinctures and botanical supplements available.

Helping parents raise happy, healthy kids is one of the most rewarding parts of my practice. Our clinic offers a common sense approach to children's healthcare including visits and well child exams. Treatment plans follow the therapeutic order, using the least invasive therapy first. When necessary, naturopathic physicians have the ability to prescribe pharmaceuticals.
Our clinic recommends products that are held to the highest standards of purity and potency, all of which are third party tested. Products include tinctures, nutraceuticals, botanical supplements, and topical preparations.
