Naturopathic Medicine for Mental Health
I am a naturopathic physician specializing in mental health. I combine psychotherapy with other treatment modalities to promote healthy brain chemistry and address contributing physiological issues. I work collaboratively with other naturopaths, nurse practitioners and psychiatrists to support and develop comprehensive treatment strategies for improving mental health.

I completed my undergraduate work at NYU and hold a doctoral degree in Naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. While my foundations in health care originate in naturopathic medicine, a field that seeks to address the roots of health with individualized medicine, I have come to specialize in mental health wellness.
Online & In-Person Therapy
A counseling relationship, as it develops over the course of many sessions, can become a deeply supportive and healing experience. The therapy becomes a space to safely explore the complexities of our most significant relationships and more fully understand how our many life experiences influence our present day. I encourage deeper insight into your unfolding life story, creating a more cohesive narrative of self with the aim of more self-acceptance and, hopefully, more self-love.
Therapy is often a vital step towards improved mental health. Finding the right therapist is integral to this process. My style is warm and engaging, offering supportive, yet constructive challenge to encourage insight and growth.

Medical hypnosis, or hynpotherapy, is a powerful clinical tool for change with broad applications. Hypnosis engages with the subconscious by offering new ideas, new stories, to help shift unhelpful or harmful patterns of behavior. Hypnosis can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including sleep disorders (e.g. insomnia, jaw clenching), phobias (flying), and addiction.
