I became interested in a holistic approach to medicine that attempts to figure out the root cause of illness after I was diagnosed with a tumor that thankfully turned out to be harmless.

Being trained in a western medicine framework I underwent additional training on “root cause medicine” and alternative ways of preventing disease and illness. I love spending time with patients and figuring out what is the true root cause that may have triggered their symptoms.


Hormone balancing, inflammation modulation, weight loss


Spending time with husband and 2 children, yoga, meditation, hiking, and reading self-help books
