A Personal Message from Dr. Susan:
I would like to invite you to join me along your healing journey. Working together, we will create a plan specific to you and your health goals, so that you can live your life with vitality. I know firsthand how challenging it can be to live with health issues, and I learned at a young age how powerful natural medicine can be. I believe the body has a natural ability to heal itself, and my purpose is to guide you during this process.
As your practitioner, I will strive to be fully present and create a supportive and safe environment for you. I will listen to both your story and your body’s story to gain insight into the patterns of your health.
Working with my patients is a privilege and I will walk with you along your journey, like so many of my practitioners have with me.

Dr. Susan’s Bio:
Dr. Susan is currently completing a residency under the guidance of Dr. Whitney Hayes and Dr. Stefani Hayes. She is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist and earned her degrees from the National University of Natural Medicine. While there, she completed rotations specializing in women’s health, gastroenterology and Japanese acupuncture. Dr. Susan enjoys all areas of women’s health, especially preconception care and fertility. She believes that digestion is important for all aspects of health and focuses on optimizing digestion and nutrition with most of her patients. Using a gentle style of acupuncture, Dr. Susan often combines treatment with non-insertive techniques and a form of bodywork called Sotai. She is also trained in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, which is a form of bodywork that focuses on improving blood flow and balance to the abdomen, reproductive areas and pelvis. In addition to acupuncture and bodywork, Dr. Susan also utilizes nutrition and herbal therapies and encourages her patients to take an active role between treatments.
Dr. Susan is originally from a small island located off the coast of Rhode Island, called Block Island. It was there that she learned to appreciate all that nature has to offer. She moved to Oregon to attend NUNM and fell in love with the west coast. Outside of her practice, she can often be found cooking, creating artwork, spending time with her husband, friends and family and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
