In this step-by-step guide, she helps us restore balance and sanity by showing how we can take back control of every dimension of our lives: our physical health, nutrition, commitments, work and home environments, relationships, and more.

About The Author:
With over 20 years of experience as an integrative physician practicing both Western and complementary medicine, I’m uniquely positioned to design a safe and effective health plan that is tailored to your needs, based on your individual health values.
Licensed naturopathic physicians are unique in that we draw on the proven medical philosophies of various cultures and integrate these with modern scientific research. We also maintain that an underlying cause exists behind all disease and symptoms. We seek to address this underlying cause and restore the body back to health. In my practice I also have an emphasis on education and empower clients to take back control of their own health.
I received my doctoral degree in Naturopathic medicine in 1996 and a Masters degree in Classical Chinese Medicine in 2000 from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. I was licensed in 1996 and currently have a full scope of integrative primary care practice. My training included pre-med classes, four years of naturopathic school that includes traditional medical training—basic sciences, anatomy and physiology, pathology, diagnosis, pharmacology and pathology as well as complementary training in nutrition, physical medicine, herbal medicine, counseling, stress management, exercise therapeutics and more. My Chinese medical training includes extensive training in diagnosis, herbal medicine and acupuncture.
My undergraduate degree was started at Union College in Schenectady, NY and finished at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. I have a liberal arts BA with a concentration on psychology and pre-med.
