What is a Naturopath?

Naturopathy is a system which emphasizes prevention and the self-healing process combined with the use natural therapies – just the way nature intended.

Naturopaths blend centuries-old knowledge and a philosophy that nature is the most effective healer with current research on health systems.  Focus is on identifying the underlying cause of disease, using complementary medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, psychology, energy medicine, spirituality and working with the whole mind/body/spirit.  AND, we take time to listen.

Principles defining Naturopathy

First, do no harm

Cooperate with the Healing Powers of Nature

Address the fundamental cause of Disease

Work with the whole person through individualized treatment

Teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine


Wellness is a state of being healthy, characterized by positive emotion, thought and action. Wellness is inherent in everyone, regardless of disease(s). If wellness is recognized and experienced by an individual, they will more quickly heal a given disease than direct treatment of the disease alone.

My Practice

I definitely inherited my predisposition for natural health.  My dad had a natural knowing of healing.  At 14, I was able to figure out that his terrible rash on his arms was from his daily use of black tea.  I had blemishes one teenage year that the doctors could not figure out.  I realized that my body could not handle some allergy or toxin effectively and is was coming out my skin.  I drank more liquid, stopped drinking milk and viola – blemishes gone.

I think our avocation is inherent and finds us.  After spending 20 years in the computer industry I quit and went to grad school for Clinical Psychology with a spiritual influence and practiced for 14 years.  This was overlapped early on with trainings in Neurofeedback and Biofeedback, Naturopathy, Clinical Nutrition and German Energy Medicine / BioResonance.  For the past twenty years my practice has been focused on   Naturopathy offering many modalities.  For me it was important to learn the psychology and applied spirituality first, then Naturopathy.  And now I absolutely love what I do.
