As naturopathic physicians, we are trained in the art and science of disease prevention, medical diagnosis and treatment using minimally invasive natural therapies. Our focus is to facilitate the body's own natural mechanisms for healing using modalities such as homeopathy, cranial sacral therapy, hydrotherapy, botanical medicine, counseling, and nutrition.
We will perform a detailed patient history, appropriate physical exams, and order lab tests as necessary. Our patients are of all ages and backgrounds. We spend one hour of time getting to know them and their history at the first office visit, and 30 - 40 minutes for follow- up visits as needed.
We strive to represent the following tenets in our practice:
- Do no harm
- Treat the whole person
- Respect the healing power of nature
- Emphasize prevention
- Doctor as teacher

Homeopathy is a natural, nontoxic therapeutic system of healing that assists in the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines or "remedies" use minute amounts of plant, mineral or animal substances to stimulate a person's innate healing ability and to strengthen the entire system.
Homeopathic remedies are particularly effective for depression, anxiety, allergies, infections, gynecological concerns, skin conditions, digestive problems, and a variety of chronic and acute conditions including colds and flu. Initial appointments in homeopathic team care are 1 3/4 hours and follow-up appointments are one hour. You might be referred to homeopathy from your naturopathic care team, but you can also self-refer.
Hydrotherapy is the use of hot and/or cold water therapy for supporting circulation, immune function, and decreasing inflammation and congestion.
Botanical Medicine is the use of herbs and/or spices to support the body's healing process.
ND Counseling is a lifestyle and health oriented counseling time in which doctor and patient have time to discuss obstacles to cure.
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a subtle, but profound hands-on therapy. It balances the entire body/mind system by identifying and releasing acute or chronic holding patterns in the connective tissue. It is a great modality for releasing trauma/ stress/ and pain for any and all human ailments.
Vegan is a diet restricted from animal and dairy containing foods.
