“If there was no life, there would be no sensations; Pain, discomfort, even fatigue are all expressions and evidence of vitality. The doctor’s job is therefore not to take heroic actions, but to help unleash and direct the body’s intelligence and energy so that the person recovers on their own. Then the doctor becomes a resource for the individual to restore their health and sustain their well-being.”
Since graduating from Bastyr University in 2003 I have been helping people regain and maintain their health using natural and gentle therapies such as Visceral Manipulation (body work) and low dose medicines. My treatments are individualized and tailored and take multiple aspects (physical body, hormones, emotions, mental states) into consideration.
I treat a wide variety of conditions but some of the conditions that I focus on include: difficult weight loss, fatty liver, healthy blood sugar regulation, digestive problems (e.g. heartburn, gallbladder disease, constipation), pain syndromes (e.g. headaches/migraines, abdominal pain & discomfort, pain of unknown origin) and skin conditions (e.g. acne, eczema).
Those who are sensitive and tuned-in in to their bodies, minds and emotions particularly enjoy working with me because I can accomodate their sensitive natures and they can feel how treatments will affect them. In this way, we can both be aligned and confident.
I have a strong & long history as a meditator (insight & loving kindness) and I love to sing, dance, do yoga, walk the dog, cook and have adventures.
