I have a passion for all modalities that naturopathic medicine has to offer, including lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, and nutrition. I love taking the time to listen to patients, understand their health history, and offer comprehensive and compassionate care so that patients feel empowered to take control of their own health. I try to practice “root cause medicine”, meaning that rather than eliminating or merely suppressing someone’s symptoms, I try to remove the underlying cause of illness.
I have expertise in mental health and see patients with conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. Another focus of my practice is women’s health, and I see women with “problem periods”, PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, and menopause. I also see patients with digestive concerns, endocrine disorders, autoimmune disease, cardiovascular issues, skin conditions, and more.
I earned my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine at National College of Natural Medicine (now National University of Natural Medicine) in Portland, OR in 2016. During my clinical education, I worked in a diverse range of practice settings and completed rotations in primary care, transgender medicine, women’s health, pediatrics, and dermatology. I also completed a year-long rotation in naturopathic mental health in conjunction with Pacific University of Oregon’s Psychology and Comprehensive Health Clinic.
After finishing my degree, I completed a rigorous year-long primary care & teaching residency at National University of Natural Medicine Health Centers in Portland, OR. I then moved to Southern California to open a private practice before relocating to Minnesota in 2019.
My practice is a safe space. I respect and honor all people regardless of race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, religion, body shape, and ability.

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of health care – an art, science, and practice of preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions of the human mind and body.
Naturopathic doctors work with their patients to prevent and treat acute and chronic illness and disease, restore health, and establish optimal fitness by supporting the person’s inherent self-healing process, the vis medicatrix naturae. This is accomplished through prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.Naturopathic Medicine blends centuries-old natural therapies with current advances in the study of human systems, covering all aspects of family health. Naturopathic doctors concentrate on whole-patient wellness, tailor their treatment plans to patients, emphasize prevention and self-care, and search for the underlying cause of the patient’s condition (i.e., the “root cause”) rather than focusing solely on treating surface symptoms.
