My approach to practicing medicine begins with establishing effective communication to build a trustworthy therapeutic relationship. I believe the body is always talking to us, it is my job to help learn how to recognize its language so we may understand the root of any imbalance. Naturopathic medicine is structured around establishing the foundations of health; by optimizing sleep, food intake, and stress, we can watch together as many elements of wellness fall into place.
Overall, my practice is comprised of women’s health, GI dysfunction, mental health, and fertility support. I have been trained extensively in pelvic floor therapy by Kathryn Kloos through her Integrative Pelvic Floor Mentorship. I also offer various types of regenerative injection therapies, such as prolotherapy, perineural, and PRP for alternative forms of pain management.
Common conditions include:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Urinary incontinence
- Pelvic pain or discomfort
- Constipation, diarrhea
- Abdominal bloating, SIBO
- Two post-graduate years AANMC accredited residency with Dr. David Chang, one year with Dr. Lindsay Wilkinson, 2020-2022
- National University of Natural Medicine, 2016-2020
- Master of Science in Health Sciences, St. Louis University 2013-2014

Personal: I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, so the Midwest will always hold a special place in my heart. In 2016, I moved to the West Coast for medical school where I soon fell in love with all Oregon offers. My partner is an Oregonian who has helped sparked my passion for mountain biking and fishing. I also enjoy cooking, surfing, all kinds of dogs, and reading.
