Areas of Special Focus

All naturopathic doctors are not the same. The four accredited naturopathic medical schools have somewhat different programs and naturopathic doctors tend to specialize. Bastyr University, the school I attended, works closely with the University of Washington Medical School and is very “science based” in its approach. Likewise, I base much of my approach to healing on as much current research and sound anecdotal evidence as I can find. I comb journals such as New England Journal of Medicine, Integrative Cancer Therapies, Alternative Medicine Review, British Medical Journal, Cancer, Journal of Clinical Nutrition and many others to find the information I need. If I can’t find something in writing, I call other naturopathic doctors and medical doctors to find the answers. Because of this emphasis, I have extensive knowledge in many areas of women’s health including:

  • Pre-Conception Counseling and Infertility

  • Consciously Conceiving the Next Generation

  • Fertility over 40

  • Interstitial Cystitis and Chronic UTIs

  • Cervical Dysplasia and HPV
