About Me

I began my interest in the healthcare field as a young girl growing up.  After my husband and I were married a few years, I began nursing school.  During this time I became pregnant with our first child.  For the first three months of my pregnancy I became extremely ill forcing me to leave school.

Over the years as our family grew and I cared for our three children, I concentrated on  the prevention of illnesses by incorporating healthy diet and nutrition.  When illness did occur I did not like the thought of giving them potentially harmful drugs to treat their symptoms.  I have successfully worked with many clients with fevers, vomiting, headaches, colds/flus, ear infections, bladder infections, pain management, inflammation from broken bones and surgeries, menstrual disorders, menopause, weight management, skin care and much more using safe natural alternatives.

In more recent years, I have had the extreme pleasure of working with women suffering with infertility issues.  All of the women were given a natural protocol to follow in order to help them conceive and shortly thereafter each one of them successfully became pregnant and delivered healthy babies.  What a privilege and joy for me to be able to be a part in helping a new life begin.  I cry tears of happiness every time a new Mom tells me she is pregnant!

As a natural health practitioner my goal is to address the root cause of your health concerns rather than treating or suppressing your symptoms with potentially harmful drugs. By design, our bodies send us signals otherwise known as symptoms to alert us something is wrong. Suppressing those symptoms with drugs does NOT address the root cause of the problem and therefore the issue still remains within the body, but now it is just “hidden” behind the mask of the drug. The root cause of the suppressed symptoms will still remain and the body will most often continue to deteriorate in other ways manifesting in new symptoms. With that being said, our bodies were naturally designed to heal itself given the appropriate environment and nutrients.  I fully believe in working with the body rather than against it in order to achieve wellness.

If you desire a natural approach in dealing with your health concerns then you have come to the right place. I have witnessed time and time again positive results using natural alternatives and my hope is to share them with you as well.

Please note: I also provide Skype and phone consultations for non-local clients.

Naturopathic Modalities

Nutrition

Nutrition is the foundation of naturopathic medicine.  Good nutrition is extremely important to the prevention of illness.  In order to address a current illness nutritional changes are often the first step towards healing.  Special diets, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutritional supplements may be recommended.

Herbal Medicine

Herbs are commonly used in the naturopathic health field.  Herbs are plants that can be used for nutrition as well as medicinal purposes.  Herbs can be extremely beneficial when used in the appropriate dosage and in the correct combination with other herbs.

Homeopathic Medicine

Based on the principle of “like cures like” homeopathic medicine was developed in the 1700’s.  Minute amounts of natural substances are used to stimulate the body’s innate self-healing abilities.  I evaluate each client and may suggest a remedy very specific to his or her individual needs.   

Acupressure

Based on balancing the flow of energy through meridian pathways acupressure uses gentle but firm pressure on very specific body points.  These therapies can be used to relieve pain, promote circulation of blood and enhance the body’s life force energy to aid healing.  I teach my clients techniques that they can use at home for themselves and their families.

Lifestyle Counseling

Physical, emotional, nutritional, spiritual and environmental factors all affect our health.  I help clients evaluate and make positive lifestyle choices for themselves.
